Honda Accord Debuts With Turbo Engines, 10-Speed Transmission

The company said no injuries have been reported in connection with the malfunctioning sensors.

Honda said it will begin notifying owners by the end of the month; however, it is likely to take quite a while to complete the recall because it needs to produce the replacement parts necessary to complete the repair.

Although getting some extra space on the inside is never a bad thing, a lot of fans feel like the Accord size is perfect as it is a size upgrade would only make the vehicle too bulky.

The recall covers cars from the 2013 through 2016 model years.

Regardless of engine choice, all Accords will come with a two-mode driving system, Normal and Sport. It's also among the highest efficiencies for any gasoline engine used in a production car. Width has grown by 0.39 inches, while overall length is fractionally less. The car will use a next generation of Honda's 2-motor hybrid technology, with a 2.0L Atkinson-cycle engine boasting more than 40% thermal efficiency, the same thermal efficiency as the current Toyota Prius' 1.8L Atkinson-cycle 4-cyl.

Beyond this, the car offers wireless device charging, 4G LTE-powered Wi-Fi and even over-the-air system updates. If road salt gets in there, it can corrode and cause a short. The automaker is also the largest customer of the faulty Takata airbags that can explode and shoot out metal fragments in a crashed vehicle. The stock's 50-day moving average price is $27.87 and its 200 day moving average price is $29.61.

I remember in 1982, when I joined Honda, I got the keys to a second-gen Accord Hatchback. With this new small-displacement turbocharged four-cylinder, the Accord should see significant improvements in performance and fuel economy compared to the outgoing 2.4-liter naturally aspirated four-banger, which made 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. Jefferies Group LLC set a $37.00 price objective on Honda Motor Company and gave the stock a buy rating in a report on Thursday, February 23rd.

Still, depending on variant, overall weight is down by up to 176 pounds, an impressive figure for a vehicle that's not that large. A shorted sensor can heat up and possibly catch fire. Other factories are located in Alabama, Indiana and the Carolinas.

There's also a lighter and more rigid body, an advanced new chassis, and three new engines, including two new turbos - our first-ever turbocharged engines for Accord. The engine is paired with the first 10-speed automatic in a front-drive car and is also available with the six-speed manual transmission on the Sport trim. The recall covers more than 1.5 million cars worldwide. Sharing components with the Civic Type R's powerplant, it delivers a stout 252 ponies and 273 units of twist. So, we expect Accord to continue to earn top safety ratings.
