In the United States, a large number of cars sold refers to sedans, and Accord is king of that class. Although SUVs are currently the most popular vehicles, in some large markets such as America and Russia, a large number of sales still refer to the sedans which in Europe occupy a lower percentage of total sales. Cars such as Nissan Altima, Toyota Camry, Kia Optima and Chevy Malibu are still on the above-mentioned markets, and the absolute king of the class in the US is Honda Accord. That’s why the new 2019 Honda Accord Type R expects much.
2019 Honda Accord Type R – Exterior Expectations and Luxurious Interior Design
The massive front mask, LED lights and a lot of chrome are obviously the formula for success in the US market, but we doubt that in the European market such a design will “pass” so successful with customers. Nevertheless, Americans adore it, so we do not doubt that this model will again achieve excellent results such as the predecessor (the wheelbase increased by 5.48 cm) and the lighter (50-80 kg depending on the equipment level).
According to the man in charge of interior design, a concert hall served as an inspiration for decorating the interior. With high quality materials, the 8-inch center screen is highlighted. Passengers on the back bench will have more space for the longer wheelbase than the previous generation. There’s also a lot of technology solutions and innovations. So, the new Honda Accord Type R 2019 is the first front-wheel drive car. That comes with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
The interior design of 2019 Honda Accord Type R will be exceptionally stylish and luxurious with almost all the new gadgets and devices installed in its cabin. The material used inside the car will be of high quality that you would love to have in your car. This time, this car will accommodate five adults with comfortable seats, and they are also equipped with heating technology. In this new car from Honda – 2019 Accord Type R, they have installed an impressive air conditioning system. Apart from that there are some other features that will add spark to this new model like:

2019 Honda Accord Type R – Modification under the Hood
The basic 2019 Honda Accord Type R will be equipped with a 1.5-liter four-cylinder 195 hp powertrain. For those more demanding, there is a 2.0-liter turbocharger with a power of 255 hp. It comes with the aforementioned 10-speed automatic transmission. There will also be a hybrid version of which more information will be available soon.
Accord faithfully, quickly and precisely comes into contact with the wishes of the driver, as its adaptive power steering is not at all informed, such as those that offer competition (better only has the new Mazda 6). In addition, the VSA stability control (as Honda calls its ESP system) complements the driver’s responses to the steering wheel.
The so-called Adaptive Servo Controller detects a weaker contact tire with a roadway. For example, on a slippery, wet asphalt during braking or turning, and automatically initiates steering to guide the driver in the right direction. The movement of the wheels is barely noticeable (the ring does not move), and the control of the control depends on the driver all the time.
