PostHeaderIcon Top Midsize Sedans of 2018

New steering rack mounting and revised suspension geometry for better handling

SUVs have become the toast of the automotive world these days that it’s hard to argue against anyone who wants to buy one. It’s just that even though SUVs continue to grow in popularity, it can’t replicate the suave styling and sophistication of some of the most popular midsize sedans on the market today. The best midsize sedans are often those that give you the best of all words. They’re stylish, powerful, comfortable, and spacious. Some even combine all those qualities in one package. SUVs have these qualities, too, but they’re often a product of customers needing them as opposed to wanting them.

With midsize sedans, especially the luxury types, you don’t need space because you have a family to fit inside it, you want the space because you want to show off your ride to your friends. Likewise, you don’t need it to be powerful for your next weekend getaway. You want it to be powerful, so it grabs the attention of the people around you. In here is a list of the best midsize sedans of 2018. Pay attention to who made it because there’s a good chance that if you’re in the market for one, you’ll end up getting one of these models.

PostHeaderIcon 10 Best Used Cars For New Drivers

While most modern cars pack in the safety features and offer plenty of value-per-dollar, there are some out there that seem to stand above the rest. If you’re scouring the used market looking for just the right ride for your new driver, fear not, as we’ve put together a list that outlines ten models that are just a few years old, but still come with just about everything you could want.

Each entry also includes a rundown on crashworthiness, as tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, or IIHS, a U.S.-based non-profit organization that conducts research on almost all new cars.

So with that, read on for our list of the ten best-used cars for new drivers.

PostHeaderIcon Video Of The Day: Old Honda Mates With New EV Tech – Meet The Teslonda

I’ll admit it – sometimes, we here at TopSpeed get a little jaded when it comes to all the insanely fast machinery we see pass across our collective desk. The crazy specs, the outrageous claims… these things can become a bit of a blur over time, much like the supercars they represent. Then, every so often, we come across something that stands out from the pack. Such is the case with the Teslonda. Combining the lightweight body of an early-model Honda Accord with an electric motor out of a Tesla Model S, plus the battery pack from a Chevy Bolt to provide the juice, this thing makes for one very weird project car. It’s also very, very quick, charging up to 60 mph in a scant 2.7 seconds. Dodge Challenger Hellcat who?

Posted to Instagram by user @jimmy.built, the shell in question is a 1981 Honda Accord, which appears to be salvaged. The same goes for the electric motor, which Jimmy identifies as the go-maker out of a P85 Tesla Model S. Output peaks at around 536 horsepower, plus there’s that metric crap ton of torque available from the word go.

The unique suspension set-up was inspired by the early days of the NHRA, and the “gasser” craze of the ’60s, wherein modified street cars took to the drag strip for top bragging rights. With most of the weight centered around the rear axle, this Teslonda just squats and goes, squealing the tires and making a noise like a giant RC car on steroids. Which it kinda is. We’d describe it as “cartoonishly” quick, like there should be a dusty outline of an ’81 Accord left behind after stepping on the long skinny pedal. The Teslonda will definitely wheelie with the right traction set-up. Jimmy says 2.7 seconds is the quickest run so far, but given the chilly ambient temperatures, there’s still a few tenths left in it. The Teslonda has yet to head to the drag strip, but the wrenches behind it are guessing it’ll do a number somewhere in the low 9’s. Of course, it’s gonna need a roll cage before it can tackle the 1320.

We love stuff like this, and wish Jimmy and his crew all the luck in wrangling every ounce of speed from the Teslonda.

What do you think, dear reader? Does this sorta thing get your juices flowing, or does it fall flat? You could argue this is a premonition of things to come in the world of modified cars – does that excite you, or disappoint you? Let us know in the comments section.

PostHeaderIcon Poor Guy Has Rims Stolen from His Honda Accord Twice in One Week

There’s bad luck, and there’s really bad luck. A couple from Prince George’s County in Maryland found themselves on the short end of the stick when a thief stole all four tires from their Honda Accord not once, but twice. The first incident occurred on November 28 when surveillance footage showed a man getting out of his car and jacking the tires from the Accord before it leaving it on bricks. To prevent the incident from happening again, the husband of the owner of the car, identified as Anthony Greer, decided to install a Viper alarm system with a tilt sensor on the Accord. Turns out, the two safety devices weren’t enough to prevent the crime from happening again. Exactly a week later on December 5, the thief managed to steal the Accord’s new set of tires after breaking the wheel locks and leaving the car on the same type of bricks.

“Investigators have identified the Accord’s wheels as the targets of the two thefts”

There are times when you’re just at a loss for words. It’s depressing enough to have this kind of theft happen to you once, but to happen twice? That’s beyond bad luck; that’s on the level of being jinxed. I do admire the composure Greer showed when he was interviewed about the two thefts. Instead of being justifiably mad, Greer offered advice on the thief, calling on him to use his talents and intelligence “for good.” That said, I’m pretty sure that advice is going to fall on deaf ears.

It’s unclear how far along the Prince George’s County Police Department is on the investigation, but investigators have identified the Accord’s wheels as the targets of the two thefts. It’s common knowledge within the industry that there are certain wheels that have common bolt patterns. This feature makes them appealing to thieves because they can be flipped for a profit pretty quickly. It just so happens that the Honda Accord is very popular among thieves in the US.

Hopefully, the Greers don’t get to experience this feeling a third time. It’s never fun to be on the short end of a theft. It’s worse if it happens twice, but three times? That’s hard to get back from.

PostHeaderIcon HondaLens Augmented Reality – The Future of the Dealership Experience

Honda has high hopes for the all-new 2018 Accord, so it’s taking the car’s dealership experience to a whole new level with a new feature called HondaLens. The augmented reality (AR) feature puts prospective customers in a unique position of seeing the Accord and its features in a whole new light, literally and figuratively. The proprietary system made its debut at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show in grand fashion. Those in attendance were given an opportunity to peak into the history of one of Honda’s best-selling models before diving deep into the array of features that the tenth-generation Accord has at its disposal.


HondaLens Augmented Reality - The Future of the Dealership Experience - image 749044
“The HondaLens feature allows users to view six hidden stories about the car that they can discover by walking around the car”

This is something to look forward to. I’ve been exposed to augmented reality before, but not in this kind of presentation. It’s good that Honda is taking advantage of the budding technology to present a new way of dealership engagement for its customers. It’s one thing to get the usual schtick from sales agents; it’s another thing to wear Microsoft’s HoloLens reality smart glass and have the stories of the Honda Accord brought before your eyes in ways that we only used to see in Hollywood.

According to Honda, the HondaLens feature allows users to view six hidden stories about the car that they can discover by walking around the car. Way-finding arrows and voice-over instructions are included in the presentation to make it easier for a customer to engage himself into the augmented reality that’s flashing before his eyes. Ever seen a hologram version of the Accord’s new turbocharged engine floating out of the hood? HondaLens can do that. There’s even a feature that puts a customer in the driver’s seat, and he experiences simulated traffic scenarios that are projected through the windshield. Move to the passenger seat, and the AR presentation turns to the various tech features that the all-new Accord is carrying. Pretty cool, right?

“What’s unclear at this point is Honda’s plans for HondaLens after the LA Auto Show.”

What’s unclear at this point is Honda’s plans for HondaLens after the LA Auto Show. It’d be cool to find this feature in its dealerships in the near future, but I won’t hang my hat on that happening anytime soon. I do hope it becomes available sooner than later. The quicker we get HondaLens into dealerships, the quicker it would be for us to appreciate the technology and what it’s all about.

PostHeaderIcon Honda Accord Type R

There’s no denying that Honda has been pretty stingy when it comes to the Type R badge and the U.S. Market. Over the years, U.K., Euro, and Japanese markets always seemed to get the best that Honda had to offer, with the Type R badge being applied to the first-generation Acura NSX, Acura Integra, the Honda Accord and, of course, the Honda Civic. Of all these, the only models we saw come to the U.S. were the NSX Type R and the Integra Type R, both sporting Acura Badges, and we finally got the Civic Type R for the 2017 model year. With that in mind, it’s been a while since the world got a Type R version of the Accord, so we decided to render up was a U.S.-Spec Accord Type R would look like. Highlights of the build would include more aggressive fascias out front with Type R specific styling to go with plenty of Type R goodness inside. There would, of course, be an improved output over the range-topping model’s 252 ponies, but how that power will come to be is another story. Other necessities include a stiffer suspension, manual transmission, tuned-out exhaust, and a lower ride height.

On the plus side, all of the necessary prerequisites are already in play. The new Accord is pretty sporty on its own, so a more aggressive look should be easily welcomed. But, with the range-topping models of the Accord already sporting the detuned version of the Civic Type R’s 2.0-liter four-cylinder, it won’t take much to get some extra power to the wheels. Even more intriguing is the fact that Accord Sport models with the 2.0-liter can be equipped with a six-speed manual if you check the right option box, so you’ll be able to forgo dealing with that new 10-speed auto gearbox. With all of that in mind, let’s talk a little about the Accord Type R’s history and then take a good look at our rendering. Are you excited? I sure am. Let’s get to it…

2018 Honda Accord-0

Well, you can go ahead and place an order for the 2018 Toyota Camry, because 2018 Honda Accord has been revealed and it’s not a very good looking car. In fact it looks like something from the 90s, especially around the back. But if you are not superficial and care more about substance than appearance, then the 2018 Accord might have something to offer you. 

Underneath that unattractive skin the 2018 Honda Accord is a very technologically-advanced sedan. The main highlights of the car include a lighter and more rigid body structure with Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) platform, an advanced new chassis design, two all-new, high-torque direct-injected and turbocharged engines, the world’s first 10-speed automatic transmission for a front-drive car and a new generation of Honda’s two-motor hybrid technology. It is as up to date technology-wise as the latest iPhone.

Engine-wise, while you no longer get a V6 option there are three available units that are fairly interesting. The first one is a 1.5-liter, 16-valve DOHC direct-injected turbo developing 192 horsepower (HP) at 5,500 rpm and 192 lb-ft. of torque from 1,500 rpm, mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) or, in Sport trim, to a CVT or a 6-speed manual transmission (6MT).  The next is a  2.0-liter 16-valve DOHC direct-injected turbo with i-VTEC featuring a 10-speed automatic transmission or, in Sport trim, to the 10AT or an available 6MT. This one makes 252 HP at 6,500 rpm and 273 lb.-ft. of torque from 1,500. The last option is the Accord Hybrid with a 2.0-liter Atkinson cycle engine paired with Honda-developed electric motors.

As for interior and technology, 2018 Honda Accord features a, as always, premium cabin featuring an ultra-slim 7-inch TFT driver’s meter and a new 8-inch Display Audio touchscreen interface. You also get Apple CarPlay and Andoird Auto, a new 6-inch driver’s Head Up Display with selectable information, including speed, engine rpm, turn-by-turn navigation, and Traffic Sign Recognition and WiFi 4G on Touring models.

For 2018, all Accords will feature the full suite of Honda Sensing safety and driver-assistive technologies as standard equipment –  Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Lane Departure Warning, Road Departure Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow and new Traffic Sign Recognition. Additional available driver-assistive technologies include Blind Spot Information, front and rear parking sensors, Cross Traffic Monitor and Driver Awareness Monitor; and all models feature a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with dynamic guidelines.

PostHeaderIcon The 2018 Honda Accord Gives Us Some Mixed Feelings

The Honda Accord has a long, illustrious history that goes all the way back to 1976 when it started out life in Japan as a compact car. Over the years, it’s been through a total of nine generation changes, effectively jumping segments twice, from compact to mid-size and, more recently, to full-size. The most recent generation kicked off in 2013, but that was before Honda really got its act together, so this generation is destined to be short-lived, with 2018 ushering in the 10th-gen Accord. Highlights include two new engines, a 10-speed automatic transmission, an all-new body design, all-new chassis design, and the full suite of Honda’s safety and driver-assistance technology as standard equipment. It has more ultra-high-strength steel than any other Honda on the market today and features a tech-savvy cabin that has an almost-German look matched with a rather busy layout.

Inside and under the skin, the Accord has gone through a complete transformation while the exterior’s new look is more evolutionary than revolutionary. One could even argue that the teasers were a bit misleading when it comes to the lesser models, whose front end just looks cheap. Higher-end models look a little better up front, but the overall look is a little risky in a segment that’s got cars like the new Toyota Camry ready to reign supreme. Want to learn more about the new Accord and get a better look at what it offers for 2018? Keep on reading for a quick breakdown.

It’s been 41 years since Honda introduced the Accord to the compact market and, in that time, it has been through 10 generational shifts, with the most recent occurring for the 2018 model year. And it came quite quickly as well, considering the ninth-gen model only ran a total of four years – a very short life cycle for a car as raved about as the Accord. For 2018, however, Honda has tried to fix all of the sedan’s little shortcomings, and it has done a pretty good job. Highlights of the new-gen model include two new, turbocharged, four-cylinder engines (sorry, folks – no V-6 this time around) to go with a new 10-speed automatic transmission, an all-new chassis design, heavily revamped interior, and a reworked body. It also sees the use of more ultra-high-strength steel than any other Honda in production today, which should make for a safe vehicle.

However, it’s not all peaches and cream. While there’s been a lot of work done inside and under the skin, the Accord doesn’t seem to live up to the hype. Not that I’m saying it’s an ugly car by any means (it’s actually quite attractive from most angles), but what’s going on up front with that big, open grille? My initial thoughts are that there’s a piece of gloss black trim missing from the front end. But, then again, looks aren’t everything, so maybe it’s not so bad – I’ll leave that decision up to you. For now, we need to find out if it has what it takes to compete against the new Toyota Camry and Hyundai Sonata, so let’s dive on in and figure it out.

PostHeaderIcon 2018 Honda Accord Confirmed for July Debut

2018 Honda Accord

By releasing a design sketch of the all-new 2018 Honda Accord the Japanese company confirmed the official debut of the car is just around the corner. The event, which is going to be livestreamed on YouTube, will take place on July 14,2017 in Detroit. 

Looking sleek and fancy in the design sketch, the 2018 Honda Accord is, according to the manufacturer, “the most fun-to-drive, premium and dramatically styled Accord ever.” Well, it kind of needs to be all that if it wants to remain competitive in a segment increasingly dominated by the Koreans. We’ve been hearing less and less of the once mighty Accord, but the 10th generation model is set to change all that and make the Accord great again!

Here are the known details about the 2018 Honda Accord so far: The family sedan is going to drop its popular V6 in favor of a turbocharged four-cylinder two new direct-injected and turbocharged engines paired with either a new Honda-developed 10-speed automatic transmission, CVT or a 6-speed manual transmission depending upon engine. It will also get, later on, a Hybrid variant with Honda’s two-motor hybrid powertrain technology. More details will be released in the run up to the car’s debut event in July, so stay tuned.

PostHeaderIcon Honda Accord Sport Special Edition

The 2017 Honda Accord just hit showrooms on June 20, 2016, and with it came a new trim level dubbed the Sport Special Edition. As such, the new trim sits on the lower side of the spectrum, taking up the spot between the entry-level Accord LX and the Accord EX, so it’s not a trim you’re going to have to pay a fortune to position yourself in either. With that said, the Sport SE comes in three different versions – the first and cheapest comes with a six-speed manual, the mid-level includes a CVT transmission, and the third comes with a CVT and the Honda Sensing Safety Package. Don’t let its position in the Accord hierarchy fool you; this lower trim level actually comes pretty well-equipped.

Jeff Conrad, the Vice President for Honda division, said, “ [The] Accord continues to set the bar in its class with customers making it the top retail selling car in America for three years running. We’re proud to offer an expanded lineup with the new Sport Special Edition and the 2017 Accord Hybrid as we continue to advance Accord’s position as a true benchmark in its class, offering an unbeatable combination of style, efficiency, fun-to-drive performance and connectivity in the midsize sedan segment.”

With that said, don’t get your hopes up thinking there are any drastic differences to the body or anything. On the outside, the general look remains the same, but that just means it has a good foundation. And, with the Accord’s 2.4-liter engine, it has decent power blended with decent fuel economy. There are eight exterior colors to choose from but just one interior color. So, let’s take a closer look at the new Accord Sport SE and see what all the hype is about.

Honda gave the Accord a much-needed facelift for the 2016 model year and, now that 2017 models are starting to break cover, Honda has upgraded the Accord Hybrid. Not only does it get that beautiful design language that just screams Acura, but it also gets an updated hybrid powertrain that promises to offer better fuel economy and performance. Furthermore, the Accord Hybrid also receives a new, more compact battery pack, which should increase trunk capacity to a midsize hybrid class-leading 13.5 cubic-feet.

John Mendel, the Executive Vice President of American Honda Motor Company, said, “The new Honda Accord Hybrid is the ultimate Accord – the most refined, technologically sophisticated and, of course, most fuel efficient in the lineup. With Accord already America’s most popular car three years running and the best-selling midsize car to younger buyers, we think this new hybrid model will add considerable momentum for the Honda brand.”

The 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid will come in three different trims, offer several different driving modes, and come with a long list of optional features that promise to make it the best Accord Hybrid to date. So, with that said, let’s take a closer look at the new Accord Hybrid and go into better detail about what you can expect. It makes its first public appearance at the Aquarium on the Pacific in Long Beach during the Earth Day celebrations on April 23rd and 24th.

PostHeaderIcon Honda Accord Cabrio Digitally Imagined

Honda Accord Cabrio

So a few days ago Honda unveiled the new Accord Coupe and, as you would expect, it didn’t really attracted much attention. The car has limited appeal. Turns out they are doing it wrong. What they should have made instead is this Honda Accord Cabrio.

Whichever way you look at it, Honda Accord Cabrio makes more sense than the Coupe version. It covers a wider market; it doesn’t have much in the way of competition – at least in the Accord’s price range; and I think you would agree it also looks better than the coupe as well. At least it is more exciting.

We absolutely adore affordable sporty drop tops because they are champagne motoring for lemonade money. You get all the convenience and practicality of a normal, run of the mill family car, but with ninety million miles of sky. And nobody’s going to hate you because it’s not a fancy car.

So because of all that we think there is a case to be made for the Honda Accord Cabrio. And if Honda doesn’t think so, we just enjoy looking at this picture and laugh when they release the sales number for the Coupe!

Honda has pulled the covers off its newest, most technologically advanced version of the popular Accord. Heavily refreshed for the 2016 model year, the Accord now boasts an updated look inside and out, with a host of new features and gadgets. Most of the mechanicals carry over from the 2015 car; the Accord still offers two stout engine options fitted with a manual transmission, a conventional six-speed automatic, or a CVT. Honda seems set on shaking the Accord’s bland reputation as a family sedan with this refresh, and from the looks of things, bland is nowhere to be seen.

The new Accord enjoyed its reveal party in the fitting location of Silicon Valley in California. The technology epicenter is home to companies like Google and Apple – both of whom now have their latest car-centered tech inside the Accord. Yep, both Apple CarPlay and Google’s Android Auto are present. The mobile device-compatible software integration now allows users to connect their iPhone or Android devices to the Accord’s infotainment system and display a condensed version of their phones’ interfaces.

Of course, Honda Sensing is offered. It now comes with Collision Mitigation Braking System, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Keeping Assist, Road Departure Mitigation with Lane Departure Warning, and Adaptive Cruise Control. All trim levels can be optioned with Honda Sensing, while the range-topping Touring model gets it as standard.

The Accord has been one of the best selling sedans for decades, but will the new improvements be enough to keep its position on the leader board?

Updated 08/11/2015: Honda announced prices for the 2016 Accord sedan, which will go on sale later in the summer. Prices will range from $22,105 for the LX with the six-speed manual transmission to $34,580 for the Touring V-6 version with the six-speed automatic.

PostHeaderIcon Official: 2016 Honda Accord Coupe

2016 Honda Accord Coupe-0

Following the debut of the new 2016 Honda Accord sedan, the Japanese company has now revealed the Coupe version of the face-lifted version with minor tweaks. The new styling features of Honda Accord Coupe are on the line with what we saw on the sedan, and it gets the same powertrains as well.

Looking at this car, one gets the feeling Honda Accord Coupe only exists for the sake of expanding the range and making it look populated. Other than that, we can’t see the appeal of a huge two-door car with no particular sporty traits and the same drive and features as the four-door version. Honda Accord Coupe is, basically, a less practical version of the sedan. It’d be all right if the coupe looked substantially different than the sedan, but that is not the case.

At any rate, the 2016 Honda Accord Coupe comes with new grille, revised bumpers, and modified lights, as we have already seen with the sedan version. The car also benefits from an upgraded steering system, better brakes, new 19-inch wheels and uprated suspension system. Interestingly, Honda says the focus here has been on refinement and a smooth ride rather than better handling.

Engine-wise, Honda Accord Coupe can be had with either a 2.4 liter in-line four developing 185 horsepower and mated to either a six-speed manual or a CVT transmission, or a 3.5 liter V6 unit with 280 horsepower and a choice of six-speed manual or automatic transmission. This V6 engine looks like a bit of relic in this day and age, which is why Honda has equipped it with variable cylinder management system to improve the fuel consumption and make it seem more modern.

PostHeaderIcon Next Generation Honda Civic And Accord Will Be More Attractive

Takahiro Hachigo — the new president and CEO of Honda Motor Company — has a vision that will fuel some new designs for Honda Automobiles. With advancement of the automaker’s global operation structure and the development of new products, Hachigo plans to step up the competition going forward. Plans are even in the works for a new “baby NSX”, but until that becomes a reality, the sporty design of the all-new Civic and the effort put into redesigning the 2016 Accord gives insight into just what Honda has in store for us.

If you were lucky enough to see the 2015 Honda Civic Concept at the New York Auto Show earlier in 2015, then you already have an Idea of the new sporty design. The look of the 10th-generation 2016 Honda Civic is the most commendable manifestation of Honda’s new design so far. It will feature tight body lines, and while it will be toned down a bit from the concept, it will still sport an aggressive front end that will discourage even the heaviest customizer from needing an aftermarket body kit. The new Civic is designed to be more sporty than anything, so don’t expect a large trunk opening to go along with the liftback-like design. I wouldn’t expect the large spoiler shown on the concept either, but you can bet the option will be there for a smaller fin on the rear end. The Civic will be offered in various trim levels, including a Type-R and a Si variant. Following the competition, the new Civic will have a new turbocharged, four-cylinder engine that is mated to either a short-throw, six-speed transmission or a CVT transmission for those who like to simply go. When properly equipped, the Civic will should still get more than 40 mpg when cruising the interstate.

The 2016 Accord also goes to show that Hachigo and his engineers aren’t playing around. Expect to see more stylish front and rear bumpers, a new grille, and new lights all the way around. I wouldn’t expect the front end to look as aggressive as what we’ll see on the Civic, but it will be a nice step up from the years before in terms of snarl. If you look for the touring model, you’ll see the multi-element headlamps similar to the LED lights seen in a lot of Acura models – hopefully something we’ll see on the new Civic as well. The Accord Sedan will sport more of a fastback design, providing a sporty look not previously seen in previous models. The new Accord will likely see direct fuel injection and may share a new nine-speed automatic transmission with the 2016 Honda Pilot.

2016 Honda Accord-1

Honda of America unveiled today a new and thoroughly updated version of the Accord sedan for the U.S. market. More dynamic, Acura-inspired styling, Honda Sensing safety and driver-assistive systems, and new infotainment with integrated Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are some of the main highlights of 2016 Honda Accord.

Styling-wise, the first thing you notice about the 2016 Honda Accord is the bold new face with a fancy grille and cool LED headlights, the combination of which reminds us of certain Acura models. The same sort of changes have happened at the back where you get a sportier bumper and new taillights. New wheel designs, up to 19 inch in size, are also available.

2016 Honda Accord-2

As mentioned, inside the refreshed cabin of 2016 Honda Accord you will find a new 7.7-inch touchscreen media center with the world’s first mass-produced application of both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration systems. Depending on the trim level, you get more standard equipment as well, such as SiriusXM satellite radio and Homelink remote, 60/40 split and folding rear seat, heated rear seats, front and rear parking sensors and rain-sensing wipers.

2016 Honda Accord-3

As for the powertrain, the 2016 Accord launches in America with two options, including a 2.4-liter inline i-VTEC 4-cylinder and a 3.5-liter VTEC V-6. The former can be paired with either a manual or a CVT transmission, while the latter get either a manual or a 6-speed automatic.
