After a complete redesign for 2018 that dropped its weight but also led to additional interior space, we expect the In accordance with remain virtually identical when the 2019 model presents. The car is likely going to boast a couple of changes under the skin, likely a brand-new trim levels and some changes inside the cabin.
The 2018 redesign of the Accord resulted in a broader vehicle and longer wheelbase, plus it handled a whole make over that a little resembles the 10th-generation Honda Civic. Because this brand-new design is still extremely fresh, we see no factor for Honda to make any considerable changes to the Accord’s looks for 2019.
Inside, the Accord not just took on a make over, however its dimensions also grew quite significantly. Its rear leg space grew by a surprising 1.9 inches, putting it at 40.4 inches and its trunk room grew by 1.9 cubic feet to 16.7 cubes, making it the largest trunk in the sector. What’s more, the shift of the hybrid model’s batteries now enables it to carry the same amount of groceries as the gasoline-only model. This must all remain the same for 2019.
Under its hood, the redesign brought about the removal of the available V6. The new optional engine is a 250-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder. When it comes to the base engine, it’s now a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder with 192 hp.
The optional engine couple with a brand-new 10-speed transmission, while the basic engine mates with a continuously variable transmission. The hybrid model sets a 2.0-liter engine to an electric motor for a combined 212 hp, which travels through a CVT on its way to the pavement.
The 2017 Accord is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+– the institute’s greatest ranking– and we anticipate the revamped model to get the very same ranking once it goes through screening. Unlike other years, you do not need to choose any choices to get this rating, as the 2018 model gets Honda Sensing as a standard feature, which includes automatic emergency braking. This ought to all stay unchanged when the 2019 Accord arrives.
There is no official release date for the 2019 Accord, but we anticipate to see it in the fall of 2018. Since there will be no notable changes, we also anticipate the 2019 Accord’s prices to stay just like the present model’s MSRP range: $24,460 to $36,690 (destination cost included). The main competitors for the 2019 Accord will consist of the Toyota Camry, Hyundai Sonata, and Nissan Altima.
