Accord: It’s time again for Honda to introduce a new generation (the 10th) of its franchise player. The Accord 2018, which goes on sale this fall, rides on a stretched version of the Civic’s platform. The Accord loses its powerful yet not wildly popular V-6 in favor of two turbocharged inline-fours. The base car will be powered by a 1.5-liter paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Optional will be a 2.0-liter bolted to a 10-speed automatic. Either engine can be paired with a six-speed manual. Honda also will offer an updated version of its two-motor hybrid. The coupe is no more.
