More trunk space, higher fuel economy promised — Honda Accord Hybrid

14 Julio 2017, 09:43 | Bibiana Flor

Honda recalled 1.15 million vehicles in the United States for faulty battery sensors that have caused engine fires in some of its cars. I'm shocked that this is what Honda's going with.

Significant progress could be made on artificial sun technology by 2023 - and it could be used to generate clean energy for China in 50 to 60 years, a senior government nuclear scientist says. "We think that this addition of new product is gonna make people stop and look" at midsize sedans, potentially boosting sales. The main contributor here is more ultra-high and high-strength steel, yielding significant gains in torsional rigidity.

After an investigation of the China incident, the automaker said it initially believed the "future occurrence rate was estimated to be low", but continued to probe the matter after receiving additional reports of fires.

For added comfort, armrests front and rear are longer, wider and more deeply padded, while seats get taller bolstering. Far too many thefts occur because the vehicle is left unlocked and the key or fob is inside. The driver's seat is now an inch lower than before and rear passengers enjoy an extra 2.5 inches of leg room.

The 2014 and 2015 Accord Hybrid was built in Marysville, Ohio, along with almost all the rest of the Accords sold in North America, its largest market.

Some better-ranked stocks in the auto space are Allison Transmission Holdings Inc.

On Touring trim levels, Honda is offering a new 6-in.

Certain models will offer optional head-up windshield display.

Honda describes the design as being next-generation, though there are clearly some influences from the handsome 10th-generation Civic.

Under the hood, the base model front-wheel-drive 2018 Accord will be powered by a new 1.5-liter four-cylinder turbocharged gasoline motor that makes 192 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque. The engine is paired with the first 10-speed automatic in a front-drive car and is also available with the six-speed manual transmission on the Sport trim.

Honda has underperformed the Zacks categorized Automotive - Foreign industry in the last three months. Derived from the unit in the new Civic Type R, the turbo-four generates 252 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque, replacing the outgoing 278-hp 3.5-liter V-6. The firm had revenue of $3,763.40 billion for the quarter, compared to analyst estimates of $3,670.98 billion.

Unfortunately, for now we only have one Accord Hybrid photo; it's the beige one in our lead image.

Sales of passenger cars have dropped steadily since 2012, amid customers' growing loyalty to SUVs and pickup trucks. It will likely target the new 2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid, the first mid-size sedan to earn a combined 50-mpg rating from the EPA.

Some systems employ "telematics", which combine GPS and wireless technologies to allow remote monitoring of a vehicle. The Accord 4-door's length also is lessened a bit.

In unveiling the new model, which does away with a V6 petrol engine, Honda USA said their new car boasts a lighter and more rigid body structure in a vehicle that has a more sophisticated, sleek and athletic design.

Overall, the Accord is between 110 and 176 pounds lighter, depending on specification. In the back are LED taillights and duel exhaust ports.

The safety issue is crucial for Honda.

A six-speed manual will be available in the 'Sports' model.
