● 2019 Honda Accord

2019 honda

one of north AmericA’s leAding sedAns


erhaps it’s no coincidence that North
America’s two leading sedans (the Toyota
Camry is the other) were completely
redesigned for the 2018 model year. But it’s the
Accord that displays the most radical adjustment,
both in the design and in propulsion systems.
Although just a touch shorter, Honda stretched
the wheelbase by more than 2 inches for greater
legroom, while lowering the silhouette by half an

inch. The Accord’s body is attached to a lighter
and stronger platform that is significantly lighter
than before. The Accord runs with a couple of
turbocharged four-cylinder powerplants plus a
non-turbo four-cylinder with an electric motor in
the Hybrid model. The base 1.5-liter turbo delivers
192 horsepower, while a 2.0-turbo makes 252
horses. That’s less than the previously optional
278-horsepower V-6, but the turbo delivers more

maximum torque available throughout a wider
rev range. The base 1.5 can be had with a sixspeed manual transmission or a continuously
variable unit (CVT). The optional 2.0 also uses
a manual gearbox, while a 10-speed automatic
is optional. Meanwhile, the Hybrid achieves
a combined city/highway mpg 47 mpg. ●
