1.2 million Accords face fire risk from faulty battery sensors — Honda recall

2018 Honda Accord is here, now as Mark 10 Honda unveils its tenth-generation 2018 Accord model

The 2018 Honda Accord, due to hit showrooms this fall, is no exception.

With three advanced powertrains, including all-new 1.5L and 2.0L turbocharged and a next generation two-motor hybrid system, this Accord will be the most fun-to-drive and fuel-efficient model yet.

Honda has officially unveiled the tenth-generation Accord, set to be internationally launched later this year. While the normal motor makes 189PS and 260Nm of peak torque, the larger motor can give out a maximum torque of 250PS and 370Nm.

Honda is hitting its USA customers with yet another recall - this time over flaming batteries. And for those wanting a more eco-friendly and fuel-efficient Accord, the new 2018 Accord Hybrid will be available in Hybrid, EX, EX-L, EX-L Navi and Touring trims.

IBM Announces Z Mainframe With Comprehensive End-to-End Data Encryption For Enterprise
Organisations can now immediately demonstrate that data within of scope of compliance is protected and the keys are secure. IBM has revealed its new Z mainframe , which is capable of running more than 12bn encryption transactions per day.

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 auto.

The interiors include a 50mm elongated wheelbase while the width has also been increased by 10mm. With a roomier cabin, Honda is betting high on clinching back the lost market share from the SUVs and crossovers in Detroit. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard, as is a whole suite of safety features that the company calls Honda Sensing.

The delivery of the 2018 model is expected to start in the USA soon; however, it is not expected to replace the Indian model anytime soon since the last model was just launched a year ago.

Green vehicle enthusiasts will be happy to learn that the 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid is even more refined than before and powered by Honda's third-generation hybrid system delivering better fuel economy than the outgoing model.
