Driving Dynamics of the 2018 Honda Accord

Also worth noting in this 2018 Honda Accord Overview is that the body of the 2018 Accord is more aerodynamic than those of its predecessors. It is also considerably lighter and more rigid thanks to the extensive use of ultra-high strength steel in most sections of its structure. As a result, the 2018 Honda Accord delivers swifter performance and it also records higher fuel economy ratings than ever before.


Its lighter body makes it easier to maneuver, and its wide footprint helps with stability and control. The 2018 Accord’s new body structure has also been designed to enhance cabin quietness. Special structural adhesives have been used at critical structure points and advanced sound insulation technologies have been utilized to ensure a more composed driving experience devoid of road/wind noise.


This car also features a new Macpherson-strut front suspension and a new multilink rear suspension that are both designed to also improve ride quality, handling precision, and cabin quietness. The Touring models feature an even more advanced adaptive damper system that automatically adjusts the damping force of the shock absorbers every 1/500 of a second. This results in an even more compliant ride.
