The all-new Honda Accord comes with two new engines both of which are turbocharged. You can select either the 2.0L Turbo with a 10-speed Automatic gearbox or a 1.5-litre which is mated to CVT. The former is capable of delivering 268 Hp power and 370 Nm torque, whereas the latter delivers 198 Hp and 260 Nm of torque. Both engines are equipped with Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology which ensures the perfect balance between performance and economy.

Safety features


Honda Accord Safety


The all-new Accord 2018 comes with the ‘Honda Sense’ safety suite of functions which make the car seem straight out of a sci-fi movie. While the vehicle does not become completely autonomous, it is as close as the technology today can get. The features include Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Collision Mitigation Brake System (CMBS), and Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM). You also get a feature called “Follow Me” which delivers magic on activation. This feature ensures that the vehicle accelerates and decelerates on its own based on the traffic conditions.
