The 2018 Honda Accord, due to hit showrooms this fall, is no exception. A continuously variable transmission (CVT) comes standard on every trim level, but buyers who opt for the Sport model can select an enthusiast-approved six-speed manual gearbox.

Honda has officially unveiled the tenth-generation Accord, set to be internationally launched later this year. The Hybrid version hasn't been detailed yet, other than knowing it has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder running on the Atkinson cycle and two electric motors. The latter one makes 250PS and 370Nm of peak torque, while the smaller motor churns out 189PS and 260Nm.

According to a January report from Busines Insider, the Honda Accord is the ninth best-selling auto in the United States, with 345,225 Accords sold to Americans in 2016 alone.

This isn't just a cosmetic exercise though, as this tenth-generation model is all-new from the ground up and employs a lighter and more rigid body structure, an advanced new chassis, a pair of new high-torque direct-injected and turbocharged engines, and a 10-speed automatic transmission that's a first for a front-drive vehicle.

The existing 3.5-litre, V-6 and the 2.4-litre, I-4 will not be offered with the 2018 model.

Coming to the design front, the new Accord looks sharper and agiler as compared to the current generation.

Although the new motor does provide better performance than the previous motors, Accord fans might find themselves missing the V-6.

Honda Sensing includes collision-mitigation braking system; lane-departure warning; road-departure mitigation; adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow; and new traffic-sign recognition. While the deliveries of the 2018 Honda Accord will start soon in the US.

The Japanese automaker is recalling 1.2 million Accords made between 2013 and 2016.
