Some consumers were anxious that the same issue would affect the new HOnda Accord but according to Honda, the battery sensor has been redesigned back in June 2016 which means the newer model should not have the same issue. This means, Honda has ditched the V6 engine in the latest model.

The new 2018 Accord also includes active and passive safety systems such as Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control, Anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brake Distribution, Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), advanced front airbags, driver and front-passenger side airbags and new driver and front-passenger knee airbags.

In the case of changes in the outer body, the new accord has a sportier, sharp and elegant look. The vehicle is packed with best of the best technology and luxurious interiors to give an unsurpassed riding experience.

It is still uncertain when the tenth-gen Accord will come to the Indian market since the current-generation Honda Accord Hybrid was launched in India only in 2016.

The 2.0 litre engine, as per Honda is very similar in design to the 2017 Civic Type R engine and it produces about 252HP with 273 lb. -ft. of torque.

Honda Accord is all new for 2018

A 1.5 litre petrol engine variant of the Accord 2018 will also be available that will generate 175 & 190 bhp of energy.

Making a global debut, Honda has unveiled the 2018 Accord in the United States.

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

This isn't just a cosmetic exercise though, as this tenth-generation model is all-new from the ground up and employs a lighter and more rigid body structure, an advanced new chassis, a pair of new high-torque direct-injected and turbocharged engines, and a 10-speed automatic transmission that's a first for a front-drive vehicle.

Otherwise, there will be a 6 speed Manual Transmission option also available of the vehicle. Prices for the new Accord will be revealed at a later date.
