2018 Honda Accord, Civic & CR-V In This Together

By  | 

The Honda Civic has been getting some great reviews. The design, performance and tech features were everything the fans had wanted. Honda also did a pretty good job with the Honda CR-V and now it is almost time to shine. Will the Honda Accord be able to pull it off?

Based on what we know right now, it looks like the Honda Accord will be taking a lot from the Civic and CR-V. The 2018 model will be riding on the same platform. Under the hood will also be the 1.5-liter turbocharged engine. There is no word on what will happen to the 3.5-liter V6 engine but most people believe that it will be killed off.

Other than getting an engine upgrade, the Honda Accord will also come with a bigger body as suggested by all the spy images taken of the Honda Accord. Since the Honda Civic did come with a much bigger body this time around, it made sense that Honda would also give the Honda Accord a size upgrade as well.

The Honda Accord will also be getting a new design based on the new Honda Civic which is great news.

The Honda Civic now comes with a 2.0 liter four cylinder engine that will offer about 158hp. There is also the 1.5-liter turbo engine that will be offering about 174hp. Both engines will be mated to a six-speed manual or CVT. With the new turbo engine, the Civic will be able to go from 0-60mph in 6.9 seconds and has a top speed of 126mph. The vehicle will also return about 31mpg in the city and 42mpg on the highway.

The Honda CR-V, on the other hand, will come with a 2.4 liter four cylinder engine that will be offering about 184hp. There is also the 1.5-liter turbo four engine that will be offering about 190hp. The engine will come mated to a CVT. The CR-V with the turbo engine will only need 7.6 seconds to go from 0-60mph and has a top speed of 124mph. It will also return about 27mpg in the city and 33mpg on the highway.
