It might seem odd that the current 2017 Honda Accord is based around a ninth-generation body that kicked off in 2012, given the vehicle’s modern appearance and technology. However, we can now start looking forward to the tenth generation thanks to recent 2018 Honda Accord spy shots published by Autoblog.
Expectations regarding the 2018 Honda Accord still have to be taken with a grain of salt; after all, spy shots only snapped a prototype, which was covered in the customary camouflaging.
However, that camouflaging couldn’t hope to conceal the 2018 Accord’s new fastback roofline and reduced trunk line. Such a profile and arching roofline indicate that the Accord is taking cues from the immensely popular and critically acclaimed 10th-generation Civic Sedan. Expect sleeker lines and improved visibility.
Spy shots failed to get much of a look inside the 2018 Honda Accord prototype, but we’re assuming that the current two-screen setup will remain.
Similarly, we haven’t yet discerned what might be under the hood. It’s probably a safe bet that some kind of four-cylinder will remain as the vehicle’s standard powerhouse, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see the current V6 replaced with a turbo four. Such a move could maintain high-end power while improving mpg ratings.
