2018 Honda Accord Spy Shots Explain Little About the Upcoming Changes

November 8th, 2016 by

Honda WheelWhen the spy shots for the upcoming 2018 Honda Accord were released, we were excited to take a look, but unfortunately they left a lot for the imagination. In the photos, you can see the 10th-gen model heavily camouflaged in all black allowing for us only to discern a few aspects about the exterior styling. However, there is much for us to speculate about what changes are likely to occur based on sibling models and previous iterations. Keep reading to learn all we know and expect out of the 2018 Honda Accord.

2018 Honda Accord Exterior Styling

Although the 2018 Honda Accord was covered from head to toe in the spy shots, we were still able to discern that the shape of the new Accord is more elegant and smooth than its predecessor. The 2017 Honda Accord has a slightly boxier shape, especially around the back window and trunk area. We can also see that the headlights are similar to those featured on the current model. The taillights were covered up which indicates that their design has been upgraded and you can see 17-inch wheels similar to the ones that come standard on the Hybrid model, so these may become standard on the sedan model too.

New Power Options

While we aren’t able to see under the hood in the spy photos, we are able to make an educated guess that the 2018 Honda Accord will likely get rid of its V6 engine option in favor of a turbocharged 4-cylinder. More and more of the Accord’s competitors are offering turbocharged versions of their base engines, so it seems inevitable that the Accord will follow suit. After all, Honda’s CR-V started to do this just this year. And it’s highly likely that the Hybrid model will remain as an option for Billings and Lockwood drivers to choose from.

2017 Honda Accord

The 2018 Honda Accord won’t be available until later next year, which is a long time to wait around when the 2017 Honda Accord is already waiting in our showroom. The current model is already a crowd favorite among our Billings and Lockwood customers thanks to its high-tech features. Some of these available features include:
