The tenth generation of Honda Accord models was also introduced to the American audience. From this autumn (2017), the 2018 model began selling on the US market. With some changes, compared to its predecessors, the tenth generation of the model will find shelter in a large number of American homes. Already now, they began to ride speculations and rumors about the 2019 Honda Accord model. Most of the changes and innovations are mentioned.
The changes made by the tenth generation Accord sedan are not revolutionary. However, the shift in relation to the previous generations is evident. Quality, performance and design are at the highest level. However, there are always those who want more and better. That’s why there are speculations and rumors of improvements and changes for 2019 MY. However, it is hard to expect that the 2019 Honda Accord will bring anything new compared to the new model for the year 2018.
Design and Construction
The tenth generation model is being produced at Mersville, Ohio. It is believed that the new model is the most dramatic stylized Accord ever. The company also notes that the new Accord is the most amusing driving model ever made.
In comparison to the previous generation, the new Honda Accord is ‘lost’. Namely, the new generation of the model has a lower overall mass than its predecessor. Depending on the version, the weight reduction is 50 to 80 kilograms. Also, the vehicle has a range of axles and a longer inter-axis distance than before. The higher inter-island distance brings more space for rear passengers. There are also new adaptive shock absorbers, as well as improved interior.
Improved interior, distinguished by better materials. There is a new three-spoke steering wheel, chrome accents of the interior, as well as seats with the option of heating and ventilation. We should not forget the wireless charger for smartphone and 4G LTE connection.
All of this reminds that the new generation of the model has exceeded all expectations. But Honda got used to the best of us. Because of all of this, it is considered that 2019 Honda Accord will not offer anything new, compared to the current 2018 model. However, the company can surprise us with a special edition or a completely new version of the model. However, none of this was announced.

The tenth generation Accorda, in the US market, is available with two petrol turbo engines and a hybrid version.
The weaker gasoline engine is a 1.5-liter, with 192 horsepower, or 143 kW, with a 260 Nm of torque. The engine is combined with six-speed manual or CVT gearboxes. There’s another 2.0-liter engine with 252 horsepower (187 kW) and 369 Nm of torque. This engine is coupled with a 6-speed manual or a new 10-speed automatic transmission.
When it comes to the Honda Accord Hybrid version, it is known to combine a 2.0-liter petrol unit and two electric motors. However, the complete specification has not yet been announced.
From the past it is known that Honda decided to offer the 2018 Accord only with the front-wheel drive. Whether the same case will be with Honda Accord 2019, remains to be seen. Maybe the AWD version offer is the only innovation Honda offers for the 2019 MY. In any case, if the 2019 model is exactly the same as the 2018 model, customers are not at a loss. It’s a really fantastic vehicle.
