Additionally, the maker is preparing to introduce the 2018 model of the Accord next week.

It is the tenth generation Accord, which now comes with two-motor hybrid technology. The 2018 Accord will launch this fall.

One of the new engine is a 1.5L 16V unit with dual VTC packs 192 hp and 185 lb-ft torque.

The second variant is a 2.0 litre engine with 16 valve DOHC direct-injected turbo with i-VTEC valvetrain which will be connected to a 10-speed automatic transmission.

Powering the Accord will be the 2.0-litre, turbo-petrol engine from the Civic Type R capable of producing up to 252hp power and 369Nm of torque. Next up is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder good for 252 hp (188 kW) and 273 lb-ft (370 Nm), instead of 278 hp (207 kW) and 252 lb-ft (342 Nm) as seen in the former 3.5-liter V6.

The sedan comes with outfitted with vehicle connectivity features, driver-assistance and safety features. Standard Honda Sensing brings collision mitigation braking, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control, while there's also a 7-inch (178 mm) digital display for the instrument cluster and a new 8-inch (203 mm) infotainment system - also a 6-inch (152 mm) head-up display and adaptive dampers for the flagship Touring trim.

The 2018 Accord will have plenty of competition when it goes on sale later this year, as Toyota recently started production of its all-new Camry, and SUVs continue to erode at traditional sedan sales.

Additional available driver-assist technologies include blind-spot information; front and rear parking sensors; cross-traffic monitor; and driver-awareness monitor.

The all-new accord has got several changes including a more provocative design, improved dimensions as well as new and more efficient engine options.
