Honda recalls 1.2M Accords battery sensors can catch fire

Even the vehicle gets new engine options, including 1.5-litre and 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol mills, which also comes with the Civic Type-R. Inside, the 2018 Accord has gained nearly 2 inches (51 mm) of rear leg room - while cargo space has jumped 3.2 cubic feet for the Hybrid as the battery has been relocated under the floor.

The new generation saloon has a 2.16-inch (55 millimeter) longer wheelbase, though it's 0.39 inches (10 mm) shorter now - it gained 0.39-inch (10 mm) at the width and dropped 0.59-inch (15 mm) in height. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) comes standard on every trim level, but buyers who opt for the Sport model can select an enthusiast-approved six-speed manual gearbox. The latter one makes 250PS and 370Nm of peak torque, while the smaller motor churns out 189PS and 260Nm.

Of the 2.1 million vehicles being recalled, approximately 1.2 million were sold in North America.

The company says its new 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine is actually more powerful than the previous V-6, generating 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque.

The 2018 Honda Accord will come with optional manual shift on select versions of the new midsize sedan.

In the case of changes in the outer body, the new accord has a sportier, sharp and elegant look. The electronic package with the new generation Honda Accord offers two driving modes (Normal and Sport), Collision Mitigation Braking System, Lane Departure Warning, Road Departure Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind Spots Monitoring with Cross Traffic and Driver Awareness Monitoring.

The delivery of the 2018 model is expected to start in the United States soon; however, it is not expected to replace the Indian model anytime soon since the last model was just launched a year ago.

The Japanese automaker is recalling 1.2 million Accords made between 2013 and 2016.
