2018 Honda Accord Rockwall TX
The wait is over! The all-new 2018 Honda Accord in Rockwall TX is now at Honda Cars of Rockwall. This new sedan marks the tenth generation of the globally successful Honda Accord family. The 2018 model year of the Honda Accord has been redesigned from the ground up, and offers drivers a number of updated and upgrades from previous model years. The new Accord offers a slightly longer body, while also introducing a lighter frame with a more responsive setup. It will also feature two new efficient and powerful turbocharged engines. These will be mated to the world's first 1-=speed automatic transmission on a front-wheel drive sedan.
Along with its engine updates, the design of this all-new Accord is also head-turning. Honda engineers extended the wheelbase of the 2018 Honda Accord by more than two inches and widened the sedan an average of half an inch, as well as lowered the car's overall height for a sleeker profile. This might not sound like much, but this model year's interior and exterior prove otherwise. This longer wheelbase translates directly to two extra inches of legroom for rear passengers, and a slightly more spacious trunk. On the interior, several updates have been made to the Display Audio infotainment system, like a larger touchscreen interface, and improved visibility.
