2018 Honda Accord vs 2017 Honda Accord

Serving Michigan City, La Porte, and Valparaiso, IN

The 2018 and 2017 Honda Accord are sedans that offer tremendous value in performance, technology and safety. Some new mechanical features that are installed in the 2018 edition include a turbocharged powertrain and 10-speed automatic transmission. Carrying the Honda Sensing technology, the 2018 and 2017 Accord are at low risks of getting into accidents.

Performance

Turbocharged technology is the dominant force under the hood of the 2018 Honda Accord. As an entry-level unit, the 1.5 L turbo engine is rated at 192 hp and 192 lb-ft. Instead of using the traditional i-VTEC platform, this engine block is based on the modified VTEC technology. If you need more output from the 2018 Accord, go for the 2.0 L turbo engine that yields more than 250 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. Additionally, the hybrid powertrain in the 2018 Accord includes a 2.0 L gasoline engine that produces slightly more than 140 hp and approximately 130 lb-ft. Featuring three modes, the Drive System optimizes the performance of the hybrid module. With additional contributions from the AC electric motor and lithium-ion battery, the 2018 Accord Hybrid offers a net output of 212 hp and 232 lb-ft. When you inspect the powertrain of the 2017 Accord, you’ll see the classic i-VTEC engine that’s available with four or six cylinders. This signature powertrain uses an induction system that’s exclusively driven by natural aspiration. The Variable Cylinder Management adjusts the i-VTEC V6 engine according to the desired output levels. For example, some of the cylinders might be completely disengaged when the car comes to a full stop. When equipped with a continuously variable transmission, the 2018 and 2017 Accord can run on virtually limitless gear combinations. This dynamic CVT can be set to operate on the custom Sport Mode.

Appearance

For 2018, Honda has added some new color choices for the Accord’s exterior design. Radiant Red is the ideal finish if you’re seeking a sporty and aggressive look that supplements the powerful turbo powertrain. If you have a classic sense of style, choose from Crystal Black, Kona Coffee or Champagne Frost. Some other relatively neutral colors that are available for the 2018 Accord include Lunar Silver and Platinum White. The 2017 model offers some eye-catching finishes that are typically reserved for sports cars. For example, San Marino Red is inspired by the rich racing heritage of Italy. Crimson Pearl and Basque Red are some other colors that mimic the natural beauty of the European continent. As mid-size sedans, both models have relatively spacious cabins that are designed with optimum comfort in mind for families. The front seats in the 2018 trim can be adjusted to one of a dozen positions. You can easily save a desirable position on the memory system that’s managed by a button.

Safety

The Honda Sensing technology gives the 2018 and 2017 Accord some major bragging rights in active safety. Linked to radar, optical and other precise sensors, this module continuously monitors the surroundings for any primarys. The Collision Mitigation Braking activates the brakes if there’s a chance of a frontal accident. For 2018, the Accord has the all-new Low-Speed Follow function that supplements the Adaptive Cruise Control. Both editions have the Lane Keeping Assist, which is sophisticated enough to correct the steering direction. The Traffic Sign Recognition is another advanced feature that’s part of the upgraded 2018 Honda Sensing package. Additionally, this premium sedan has a head-up display (HUD) that improves your focus of the road.
