We are expecting the 2018 Honda Accord to encroach on the territory of the Honda Civic and CR-V next year. When it does all three of the Honda vehicles will offer up the same platform. It is also thought that they will all offer the same 1.5 litre turbocharged engine too.
The Honda Accord will arrive with the turbocharged engine and we might then have to say goodbye to the V6 3.5 litre non-turbo. Honda has been focusing on the 4 cylinder turbocharged engine but there are still many people who like the V6 engine. It has been a great engine as it offers up superb road performance and the vehicle offers comfort and active safety.
There is nothing wrong with the 4 cylinder turbocharged gas engines but they are very noisy when you start them up and of course they don’t sound as cool as the V6 engine.
Honda could offer the 2018 Honda Accord with the non-turbocharged and the turbocharged version of the engine.
