One of America’s favorite sedans has been totally remodeled for 2018, the Honda Accord. Although we already know nearly every detail on the new sedan, the price tag was still a mystery until today.
Honda says, preliminarily, the 2018 Accord LX will start at $23,570 (including destination), which yields buyers a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder and a CVT automatic. For those keeping tabs, this means the base price of the Accord has gone up just over $1,000 more than the 2017 model.
Those not wanting the base model can upgrade to the Accord Sport for $25,780 with either the CVT or manual gearbox.
The EX trim level comes in at $27,470, while the EX-L starts at $29,970. Buyers can add navigation system to the EX-L trim for $30,970.
For 2018, Honda has ditched the V-6 engine, opting instead to offer a turbocharged 2.0-liter as its replacement. Buyers opting for the 2.0 turbo are also gaining Honda’s new 10-speed automatic versus the CVT option.
The price of entry for the 2.0-liter is the Sport model, which starts at $30,310. The EX-L starts at $31,970. The top-tier Accord Touring will carry a price tag of $35,900.
Fuel economy ratings for the 2.0 turbo have not been released just yet, but the 1.5-liter is rated at 30 mpg city and 38 highway. Sport and Touring models are rated 29 mpg city and 35 mpg highway with the CVT, while the manual gearbox is rated 26 mpg city and 35 mpg highway.
The 2018 Honda Accord will arrive in Honda dealerships in the coming weeks.
