After a complete redesign for 2018 that dropped its weight but also resulted in additional interior room, we anticipate the Accord to remain practically similar when the 2019 model presents. The car is most likely going to boast a couple of changes under the skin, likely a new trim levels and some changes inside the cabin.
2019 Honda Accord Redesign
The 2018 redesign of the Accord caused a larger vehicle and longer wheelbase, plus it handled an entire make over that slightly resembles the 10th-generation Honda Civic. Since this new design is still very fresh, we see no factor for Honda to make any considerable changes to the Accord’s search for 2019.
2019 Honda Accord Interior
Inside, the Accord not only took on a make over, however its dimensions likewise grew quite significantly. Its rear leg room grew by a surprising 1.9 inches, putting it at 40.4 inches and its trunk room grew by 1.9 cubic feet to 16.7 cubes, making it the largest trunk in the sector. What’s more, the shift of the hybrid model’s batteries now permits it to transport the exact same quantity of groceries as the gasoline-only model. This should all remain the exact same for 2019.
2019 Honda Accord Engine
Under its hood, the redesign produced the elimination of the offered V6. The new optional engine is a 250-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder. As for the base engine, it’s now a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder with 192 hp.
The optional engine couple with a new 10-speed transmission, while the standard engine mates with a continuously variable transmission. The hybrid model sets a 2.0-liter engine to an electrical motor for a combined 212 hp, which takes a trip through a CVT on its way to the pavement.
2019 Honda Accord Safety
The 2017 Accord is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+– the institute’s highest ranking– and we anticipate the redesigned model to get the same score once it goes through testing. Unlike other years, you don’t need to choose any alternatives to get this score, as the 2018 model gets Honda Sensing as a basic feature, which includes automatic emergency situation braking. This need to all stay the same when the 2019 Accord arrives.
2019 Honda Accord Pricing & Release Date
There is no main release date for the 2019 Accord, however we expect to see it in the fall of 2018. Given that there will be no significant changes, we also expect the 2019 Accord’s rates to stay similar to the existing model’s MSRP range: $24,460 to $36,690 (location fee included). The main rivals for the 2019 Accord will include the Toyota Camry, Hyundai Sonata, and Nissan Altima.
