The 2018 Honda Accord: 2018 Car of the Year Winner
The 2018 North American Car of the Year Award² is a fine distinction for any vehicle to hold. It’s a guarantee for drivers in Palm Beach, Wellington, Greenacres, and beyond that a car has the comfort, performance power, safety, and more for enduring satisfaction.
Well, this year, it’s the 2018 Honda Accord that walks away with the 2018 Car of the Year² commendation and the Braman Honda of Palm Beach team is happy to tell you all about it.
Honda Accord Performance Options
One of the things that makes the Honda Accord such an outstanding choice compared to others in its class is its powertrain.
Now in its 10th generation, the 2018 Accord takes performance to the next level right in its base trim by adding a standard turbocharged engine.
With a 1.5L turbo inline 4-cylinder engine, the Accord can easily produce 192 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque. A hybrid option is also coming for the 2018 Accord. This is perfect for eco-conscious drivers who are looking to save even more money on gas.
Of course, the standard turbocharging in the Accord also means it’s more efficient—especially when paired with the Continuously Variable Transmission with Sport Mode. This allows the Accord to maintain an EPA-estimated 38 MPG highway and 30 MPG city.1
Smarter Safety Features
For any vehicle to achieve the 2018 North American Car of the Year² status, it needs to go above and beyond in the passenger protection department. With a standard Honda Sensing® suite, the 2018 Honda Accord most certainly does.
Honda Sensing® is a smart suite of collision-predicting technology that comes standard in all trims of the 2018 Accord. By employing a network of sensors and small cameras, it can watch the road and act autonomously when it senses a collision coming. Its included features are:
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™
- Road Departure Mitigation System
- Forward Collision Warning
- Lane Departure Warning
- Lane Keeping Assist System
- Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow
- Traffic Sign Recognition System
2018 Accord: 2018 Car of the Year Interior
One of the final ingredients necessary to earn the 2018 North American Car of the Year² award is a spacious and comfortable interior.
The cabin of the Accord offers 105.6 cubic feet for passengers to stretch out in, as well as a 16.7-cubic-foot trunk. Within, you’ll find many comforts and conveniences, such as The Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control System and Push Button Start. There’s also an available heated 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seat for optimal comfort.
Infotainment features abound, offering multiple ways to stream music and connect mobile devices. Namely, you’ll have available Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ mobile integration, which allow you to pull up your favorite apps on the available 8-inch touchscreen.
