Trim Levels
For 2018 Honda supplied us with the typical wide range of trims typically offered in past Accord generations although initially only one engine was available. Fast forward, now you can choose from either the 1.5-liter turbocharged four cylinder or a bigger 2.0-liter four cylinder engine, the latter offered in higher trims like the Sport, EX-L and Touring. Sport lives up to its name with two transmission options: an automatic transmission or six-speed manual available on both engines. Owners looking for more in terms of power, range and even the latest in Honda tech can opt for a 2.0L L4 with 2-Motor Hybrid System mated to an E-CVT transmission, a $1530 option on LX, EX, EX-L and Touring models.

Exterior options are plenty, enough to likely tell yours apart from another in a parking lot especially with the slow sales currently. Slow sales resulting in changes to production could mean some slight reconfiguration of the options below among other changes if they do happen in future model years. Right now we get to choose from over 10 colors, 6 wheels and a small selection of optional accessories to improve aesthetics. Among the fundamental parts of its design regardless of trim you can find strong character lines, LED Low-Beam Headlights, LED fog lights, Active Grille Shutters, Air Curtains, muscular design cues, and a fastback style rear that greatly contributes to the Accords sporty edge.
