New Honda Accord Hybrid will be built in Ohio

2016 Honda Accord Goes Modern With New Tech New Look First Drive

Honda's shares declined 3.4% during this period compared with the industry's gain of 5.1%.

The 2018 Honda Accord will see an overhaul in features with the latest generation.

Thankfully, no injuries have been reported stemming from the five reported engine compartment fires.

Honda has unveiled its 10th-generation Accord sedan in Detroit, showing the world its most dramatically styled version of the perennially best-selling American-built sedan.

The new Hybrid builds on what was arguably the most-advanced and definitely the most fuel efficient midsized hybrid. The new mid-sizer goes on sale this fall, as a 2018 model. Production returns to Ohio after moving to Japan for the past few years.

The hybrid system in the 2018 Accord is all-new. That first weekend, my wife and I took a long drive from New Jersey up to Cape Cod. In the coming months, Nissan Motor Co Ltd is expected to launch a new Altima midsize sedan, and Hyundai Motor Co will launch a new Sonata midsize car. The car starts now at about $23,000.

Some systems employ "telematics", which combine GPS and wireless technologies to allow remote monitoring of a vehicle. And we hope to repeat that approach with Accord.

Analysts are split whether the new Accord will help boost sales of the car for the Japanese automaker.

It's an all-new Accord that speaks to your head and your heart in equal measure. Certain new Accords will be available with a new 10-speed auto shift, which Honda called a first for a front-wheel drive car.

As you can see, with the Touring, Sport and Hybrid models on stage, we're taking Accord in a more stylish, sporty and premium direction.

Two new direct-injected and turbocharged 4-cylinder engines and a new generation of Honda's two-motor hybrid technology. The glasshouse stretches further back which, together with the increased tumblehome, gives the Accord a more dynamic look.

Honda says it will notify Accord owners impacted by the recall before July 31.

As a result, substances like road salt can enter the sensor and cause it to short, potentially leading to fires. In that sense it's a bit like a Koenigsegg, but only kind of.

In Sport trim, the new 2.0-liter turbo can be equipped with a 6-speed manual. If you are accessing this story on another domain, it was illegally stolen and republished in violation of international trademark & copyright legislation.

The automaker said there have been four reports of engine fires.

More space inside with a larger trunk and a longer wheelbase for more rear leg room.

The chassis features MacPherson strut front and more compact multi-link rear suspension, mounted to an all-aluminium front and a more rigid floating rear subframe; a new dual-pinion variable-ratio electric power steering is also fitted. The upgraded engine is a 252-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder mated to a new 10-speed automatic transmission or an optional six-speed manual in the Sport model.

Better Fuel Economy All Around?

The sensors alert drivers to any problem with the battery, and Honda suspected that they may not be sealed properly against moisture.
