Honda recalls nearly 1.2 million Accords over flaming batteries - Fox 6

The 2018 Honda Accord has been unveiled in the U.S., making its global debut in the automotive market.

The all-new accord has got several changes including a more provocative design, improved dimensions as well as new and more efficient engine options. Even the auto gets new engine options, including 1.5-litre and 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol mills, which also comes with the Civic Type-R.

Additionally, select 2018 Honda Accord trims will come with an all-new 10-speed automatic transmission - Honda claims that this is a "first" for front-wheel drive vehicles. The 2.0 litre engine will replace the existing 3.5litre V6 engine that produces about 278 HP and 252 lb. -ft of torque.

American Honda Motor Automobile Division of senior vice president Jeff Conrad said: "We are redefining the Honda Accord for a new generation of buyers by bringing something unexpected that challenges the idea of what a mainstream sedan can be". The design borrows styling cues such as a sharp front end with elongated headlights and C-shaped tail lights from the tenth-generation Civic, and it receives a sleek, fastback-like roof line. With a roomier cabin, Honda is betting high on clinching back the lost market share from the SUVs and crossovers in Detroit. 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 2018 Accord is lower and wider than its predecessor, and it boasts a longer wheelbase.

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