When buying a new car, there are tons of sedans available to choose from. In fact, the average driver can't even keep them all straight. Think about it... could you remember the name of Volkswagen's midsize sedan, or could you possibly think of the name that Hyundai uses for its compact sedan model? Probably not. But, when you hear the name Accord, we're willing to bet that you instantly recognize it as the name of Honda's midsize sedan option, a car that has remained a top choice in the segment for decades.
In fact, the Accord has been in production since 1976, and a nameplate doesn't achieve that kind of longevity by being mediocre. But, despite the many years the Accord has been in existence, Honda has prepared something real special for the 2018 model year. New and redesigned, the 2018 Honda Accord has arrived at our location in Bluffton SC, and we can't wait to show it to drivers from all over the Lowcountry.

Depending on trim level, the 2018 Accord comes powered by either a 1.5-liter or 2.0-liter turbocharged power plant, hence the 1.5T and 2.0T designations in the trim lineup. The former pumps out up to 192 horsepower while still being capable of an impressive 38 mpg highway*. The 2.0-liter engine increases that horsepower output to 252 and pairs it with 273 lb-ft of torque.
It's easy to take safety for granted these days, but not all vehicles are created equal in this department. When it comes to the Accord, the 2018 model now comes standard with Honda Sensing ®, a suite of safety technologies like Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist and Collision Mitigation Braking for extra peace of mind on the road.
Like the Accord, smartphones are a major part of our lives in the 21st Century. Honda has equipped the Accord with state-of-the-art infotainment tech that makes it easier than ever to stay connected on the go. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are available features that mirror many of your smartphone apps on the vehicle's touchscreen display, which pair nicely with the Accord's wireless phone charging capabilities.
As you can see, there is a lot to love from the 2018 Honda Accord, but we haven't even mentioned one of our top favorite features yet. We are referring to the Head-Up Display, which projects important information into the driver's line of sight. Unlike cheaper variations of this technology, the Accord actually projects this information on the windshield in front of you rather than on a plastic screen. When turned on, the Head-Up Display can show you your navigation directions, alert you to incoming phone calls, display your speed and the speed limit and even the tachometer for the driving enthusiasts out there.
You can probably already tell that the 2018 Honda Accord is full of thrilling features and capabilities. The truth is, however, we're only just getting started. Whether you're from Beaufort SC, Savannah GA or anywhere in between, allow us to share more with you here at Hilton Head Honda. We are conveniently located in Bluffton SC for Lowcountry drivers, so stop by and take a test drive.
