2018 Honda Accord Engine Options and Performance Specs

The 2018 Accord took an entirely new approach to performance with the availability of three advanced new powertrains—two turbocharged 4-cylinder engines and the third generation of Honda’s two-motor hybrid powertrain technology. Honda’s newly developed 10-speed automatic transmission (10AT)—the first of it’s kind for a front-wheel-drive car—is mated to the new 2.0L engine. A short-throw 6-speed manual transmission is available for both turbocharged engines in the Sport trim. Read a little bit more about the 2018 Honda Accord engine options and performance specs below.

1.5L direct-injected turbo

The new 1.5L 16-valve DOHC direct-injected turbo with dual Variable Timing Control and VTEC delivers a thrilling 192 horsepower at 5,5500 rpm and 192 lb-ft of torque from 1,600 to 5,000 rpm. The new output numbers are a nearly 10-unit increase over the previous generation’s normally-aspirated 2.4L engine. The new 1.5L turbo is mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), with the Sport trim offering the option of a CVT or a 6-speed manual.

2.0L direct-injected turbo

The 2018 Accord can also be equipped with the newly available 2.0L 16-valve DOHC direct-injected turbo with VTEC® valvetrain and dual VTC, which replaces the previous generation’s 3.5L V6. The new engine shares much of its design with the 2017 Civic Type R, producing a heart-pounding 252 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 237 lb-ft of torque from 1,500 to 4,000 rpm. The 2.0L turbo is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

2.0L Atkinson cycle

The new Accord Hybrid is powered by Honda’s 3rd-generation two-motor hybrid technology. The powertrain utilizes a 2.0L 16-valve DOHC Atkinson cycle engine paired with two electric motors. The system operates without the need for a conventional automatic transmission.

A new compact intelligent power unit (IPU) containing the hybrid battery pack and its control systems is now mounted under the rear cabin floor instead of in the trunk, which opens up both the Accord’s cargo space and the flexibility of a 60/40-split and folding rear seat.

Just wanted to say "Thank you!" for verifying an issue with a tire on my daughter's 2007 Honda Civic as I was driving her from the greater Houston area to Charlotte (and her on to Virginia). The Service team was friendly, accommodating, communicative at every step and if we lived anywhere close, I'd bring vehicles in there for service. Thanks again for taking care of ... us today on our travels!
