Honda recalls more than a million cars over battery fires

Honda recalls more than a million cars over battery fires

Though Honda does well with its HR-V and CR-V compact SUVs and holds the top two positions in retail domestic auto sales with its Civic and Accord sedans, overall vehicle sales are sliding.

"The major challenge to the new Accord is the market shift to crossovers that has hit the midsize sedan market hard, so while we expect the new Accord to be a technological, design and engineering success, it's unlikely to be the sales success that its predecessor was". With a redesigned Camry already revealed (and driven) for 2018, the all-around fun-to-drive Mazda 6, value-oriented Hyundai Sonata and stylish Kia Optima, Honda has a lot of work cut out for it amongst an incresingly competitive set.

"We are redefining the Honda Accord for a new generation of buyers", said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president of Honda's American automobile division. Designers gave it a bolder and more upright front fascia.

Also borrowed from the Civic is the car's platform.

Ford Motor Company (F)
General Motors Company, launched on August 11, 2009, designs, builds and sells cars, trucks, crossovers and automobile parts. Ford Motor Co. (F) has been given an average price target of $12.8 from analysts, according to data collected by Finviz.


Front seats are heated and ventilated, with rear seats now getting back and bottom cushion heating. The 2.0T gets Honda's new 10-speed automatic transmission just released in the '18 Odyssey minivan.

The design goal was to give the auto a more athletic stance with a low and wide body, more raked windshield, short overhang, low hood, large, more angled greenhouse, and narrow roof pillars, as well as sculpted body sides and an upswept decklid. The current Accord continues to take a conservative approach, and it will be interesting to see smarter styling making it on the model. This engine is related to the unit in the Civic Type R and can be had with either a 10-speed automatic or 6-speed manual. Both engines are also available with a six-speed manual. So far, the word is that the new Hybrid will use a 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine, which in concert with its dual-electric-motor system developed by Honda, does not need a conventional transmission.

But it also has a larger rear seating area, more passenger volume and more trunk space.

A 2.5-in. (64-mm) increase in rear legroom is realized thanks to the longer wheelbase allowing for rear seats to be pushed back. A 7.0-inch screen features in the instrument cluster and is joined by an 8.0 touchscreen in the center stack for infotainment.

Certain models will offer optional head-up windshield display.

Honda Sensing technology-a suite of safety systems-is standard on all models and, importantly, on all trim levels, including base models. At the same time, Normal and Sport drive modes affect the behavior of the dampers as well as the tuning of the new dual-pinion, variable-ratio steering rack, throttle mapping, and active noise control. The 2.0-liter model has four trims available: Sport, EX-L, EX-L Navi, and Touring. The package includes automatic emergency braking lane departure warnings, and adaptive cruise control. (370 Nm) of torque from 1,500-4,000 rpm.

As announced last month, the big news with '18 Accord's engines is the lack of a V-6.
