2019 Honda Accord Redesign
The more upscale 2019 Honda Accord enters the world with a new powertrain lineup, which drops the V-6 for new turbocharged four-cylinders, a new hybrid system, and a 10-speed transmission.
The all-new 2019 Accord goes on sale this fall with the hybrid to follow in the winter. The world debut today in Detroit and Los Angeles reveals a stylish and sportier 10th generation of the midsize sedan. There will not be a coupe, a body style that only accounted for about 4 percent of sales, said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president of the Automobile Division of American Honda. He does not think Honda will lose those coupe sales. “We put coupe goodness in the sedan.”
Replacing the Accord is a big deal, given its history of being a top-selling midsize sedan—a perpetual second place to the Toyota Camry but often first when it comes to sales to retail customers, not including rental and corporate fleets.
