Honda Accord Named 2018 “Car of the Year” by Detroit Free Press

The Honda Accord was always a favorite among drivers in East Stroudsburg, Stroudsburg, Bethlehem, Easton and Jim Thorpe. Now, the vehicle turned over a new leaf in 2018, with big changes to its design and driving experience.

That's why Detroit Free Press named it the 2018 "Car of the Year." Discover why the vehicle earned this top honor, and don't hesitate to contact us at Ray Price Honda if you have any questions.

Honda Accord Fuel-Efficient Engine Performance

The 2018 Honda Accord comes standard with a 1.5L 4-cylinder engine that delivers 192 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque. For even more power, there's the available 2.0L 4-cylinder that puts out 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque.

However, the vehicle's overall power doesn't compromise its fuel efficiency. When equipped with a continuously variable transmission (CVT), the Accord can achieve an EPA-estimated 30 city/38 highway MPG.* If you're looking to drive even farther for longer, you may want to consider the Accord Hybrid. The Accord Hybrid achieves an EPA-estimated 47 city/47 highway MPG.*

In general, the Accord is fun to drive. It has sharp steering, a smooth ride, and handles well on the road.

Accord Exterior & Interior Features

The new Accord is built on a lighter and stiffer platform than in previous years. This build, plus active grille shutters and air curtains, contributes to the high fuel efficiency and nimble handling. Furthermore, it has a sporty, bold look with strong character lines. It also has a muscular, fastback-inspired design that adds to its head-turning style.

The Honda Accord has plenty of space for passengers and cargo, too. In fact, it has the biggest trunk in its class. With 16.7 cubic feet, you'll have more than enough room to fit grocery bags, luggage, and more inside the trunk.

The vehicle's design comfortably accommodates five people. It has 42.3 inches of front legroom, 40.4 inches of rear legroom, and 105.6 cubic feet of passenger volume. Plus, with the 60/40 split fold-down rear seats, you can fit plenty of cargo while still leaving room for a backseat passenger.

Advanced Honda Safety Options

A big reason why the Accord is seen as dependable is because of its safety features. It comes standard with Honda Sensing®. This suite of driver-assisting technologies was designed to help alert you to things you might miss while driving.

Some of the features included in Honda Sensing® are...

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™: Can automatically apply the brakes if it detects an unavoidable frontal collision.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System: If you start to drift from your lane without using a turn signal, the system will subtly adjust your steering. This is to get you back to the center of your original lane.
  • Traffic Sign Recognition: Uses a camera to recognize speed limit signs and display them on the Driver Information Interface or available Head-Up Display.
