2018 Toyota Camry Becomes The Benchmark For Upcoming Accord

Although there is very minimal details on the Honda’s upcoming 2018 Accord, it has been leaked that the model will be expanding in size, just like the latest version of the Toyota Camry.

Spy shots reveal that the newest Accord will be larger than its predecessors. A report by AutoGuide discloses that the upcoming Accord will be employing a bigger variant of the Civic and the upcoming CR-V’s architecture. The platform will also share similarities with VW’s flexible MQB modular platform.

It’s evident that the US version of the latest Camry is being used as a benchmark by the Accord as the Toyota will be featuring a longer wheelbase, wider body and tracks, extended rood along with a larger set of wheel arches.

Wheels reports that the Camry’s length will grow 10mm to 4,859mm while its width will be 1,839mm after a 20mm addition. Meanwhile, the wheelbase will increase 50mm to 2,824mm but its height will be brought down from 1,470mm to 1,440mm.

The 2018 Honda Accord is slated to make its official debut in the later half of this year and sales should be kicking off sometime in the mid of 2018.
