The bigger engine will get an advanced 10 speed automatic transmission

Honda has released a new teaser image of their tenth generation Accord which will launch later this year. The new generation sedan according to Honda has been completely redesigned and re-engineered for the year 2018. There is no doubt in the fact that the Accord has been the number one choice for individual American car buyers since 2010.

The new generation Accord will also get two new turbocharged petrol engines in the form of 1.5 Litre, direct-injected DOHC Turbo with dual variable cam timing (dual VTC)-litre and a 2.0-litre unit. Both engines will be paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox Moreover the 1.5 Litre unit will also get an optional CVT gearbox, while the 2.0 Litre unit will get an advanced 10-speed automatic gearbox.

The sedan will be launched first in the US where it has been the best seller in the midsize sedan segment for four straight years (2013-2016). For the first five months of 2017, according to the Sales Data, the Accord is still the top-selling midsize sedan in America and the second best-selling passenger car overall.

Although the car has not been revealed in the images, it will get a wider and athletic stance. The additional details of the new sedan will be released within the next few weeks.
