    The 2018 Honda Accord continues to be a perennial favorite among generations of drivers. Year after year, it provides a reliable and comfortable ride with well-equipped cabins loaded with features. The Accord also takes safety seriously with features and technology that help drivers drive better while averting dangers, preventing collisions, and minimizing impacts. And with five trim levels to choose from, there is a model that is right for every type of driver and budget.

Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure

The Accord has a deep commitment to safety that is demonstrated directly into its fabric of design. Honda’s innovative Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure utilizes a complex network of frame structures to absorb crash energy and distribute it away from the occupants inside. It also minimizes the amount of force transferred to the other vehicle involved, keeping everyone on the road safer.

2018 Honda Accord Rearview Backup Camera

Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Dynamic Guidelines

Every model of the Accord comes equipped with a multi-angle rearview camera that allows drivers to check their surroundings before backing up. And with dynamic guidelines to help direct drivers and judge distances, the Accord can maneuver in and out of tight spaces much more easily. The camera includes three different angles, each especially helpful in different driving situations:

  • Normal View – Check for a clear path behind the Accord before reversing.
  • Wide View – Drivers can check for approaching vehicles or pedestrians who may be nearing the rear of the Accord.
  • Top-Down View – Optimal view when parallel parking.

Honda Sensing

Honda Sensing is a suite of driver-assistance technology that comes standard on every model of the Accord. The package helps drivers see more, do more, and drive more safely on the road.

  • Forward Collision Warning – When an impending forward collision is detected, a warning will be issued to the driver to take swift action.
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System – Front sensors detect when an oncoming vehicle is dangerously approaching the Accord and can automatically engage the brakes in order to prevent an impact.
  • Lane Departure Warning – If the Accord rolls over lane lines without a signal change, this system will warn the driver to correct the steering.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System – If the Lane Departure Warning goes unheeded, this system can nudge the steering to bring the Accord back into the center of the lane.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow – Drivers select a desired speed and distance interval with the vehicle ahead and this system works to keep the Accord within the natural flow of traffic.
  • Traffic Sign Recognition System – This system recognizes upcoming traffic signs and will notify the driver of what’s ahead.
