Honda Accord is the first FWD sedan to get 10-speed transmission

Honda is hitting its USA customers with yet another recall - this time over flaming batteries.

Moreover, there will be a 1.6 litre diesel engine option and a Hybrid version of the vehicle that will debut globally for sure.

The Honda Accord 2018 features for the first time ever 10 speed automatic transmission, which will be paired with the 2.0 ltr petrol engine variant. While the new motor is said to deliver better performance than the previous generation inline-four, the V-6 might be missed by the Accord fans.

In addition to the above-mentioned improvements and new features, the 2018 Accord will also come with an infotainment system that users can upgrade via Wi-Fi. The sleeker body sits on a lighter chassis, that is claimed to be more rigid than the one used in the current model.

The wheelbase has been elongated in the 2018 model by 50mm and the width has also been increased by 10mm, while the roofline is lower by 15mm. The electronic package with the new generation Honda Accord offers two driving modes (Normal and Sport), Collision Mitigation Braking System, Lane Departure Warning, Road Departure Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spots Monitoring with Cross Traffic and Driver Awareness Monitoring. The vehicle will also get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity options.

The 2018 Honda Accord was officially unveiled on Friday, and hopes are high that the Japanese automaker's latest offering will help give the midsize sedan space a much-needed shot in the arm in the United States. The New York Daily News wrote that the new Accord may "likely set new standards in the midsize auto segment", as reviewer Christian Wardlaw praised the car's sleek, revamped design, as well as its new engine offerings for the 2018 model year.
