After a complete redesign for 2018 that dropped its weight but likewise resulted in additional interior room, we anticipate the Accord to stay virtually identical when the 2019 model presents. The car is likely going to boast a couple of changes under the skin, likely a brand-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 somewhat looks like the 10th-generation Honda Civic. Because this brand-new design is still very fresh, we see no reason for Honda to make any considerable changes to the Accord’s try to find 2019.
2019 Honda Accord Interior
Inside, the Accord not just took on a make over, but its measurements likewise grew quite substantially. Its rear leg room grew by an unexpected 1.9 inches, putting it at 40.4 inches and its trunk space grew by 1.9 cubic feet to 16.7 cubes, making it the largest trunk in the segment. What’s more, the shift of the hybrid model’s batteries now enables it to carry the same amount of groceries as the gasoline-only model. This ought to all stay the very same for 2019.
2019 Honda Accord Engine
Under its hood, the redesign caused the elimination of the readily available V6. The new optional engine is a 250-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder. When it comes to the base engine, it’s now a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder with 192 hp.
The optional engine pairs with a new 10-speed transmission, while the standard engine mates with a continually variable transmission. The hybrid model pairs a 2.0-liter engine to an electrical motor for a combined 212 hp, which travels 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 expect the upgraded model to obtain the exact same ranking once it undergoes screening. Unlike other years, you do not need to choose any alternatives to obtain this ranking, as the 2018 model gets Honda Sensing as a standard feature, that includes automated emergency braking. This need to all stay unchanged when the 2019 Accord gets here.
2019 Honda Accord Pricing & Release Date
There is no main release date for the 2019 Accord, but we anticipate to see it in the fall of 2018. Considering that there will be no noteworthy changes, we likewise anticipate the 2019 Accord’s rates to remain just like the current model’s MSRP range: $24,460 to $36,690 (destination charge consisted of). The primary competitors for the 2019 Accord will consist of the Toyota Camry, Hyundai Sonata, and Nissan Altima.
