It's therefore a pretty big deal when such a successful model undergoes a major restyle, and Honda has probably gone a little further with its recently unveiled 2018 Accord than some commentators may have expected.

The Honda Accord 2018 features for the first time ever 10 speed automatic transmission, which will be paired with the 2.0 ltr petrol engine variant.

The first of the new engines is a 1.5-liter direct-injected turbo with dual Variable Timing Control, which develops 192 horsepower and 192 lb. -ft. of torque. The latter one makes 250PS and 370Nm of peak torque, while the smaller motor churns out 189PS and 260Nm. A six-speed manual gear box will also be offered with the selected trims. Inside, the 2018 Accord has gained nearly 2 inches (51 mm) of rear leg room - while cargo space has jumped 3.2 cubic feet for the Hybrid as the battery has been relocated under the floor.
