There is no doubt that Honda is preparing something good for future generations. Actually, the most iconic rivals were presented mainly in eastern market, the UK and Europe. The best offer was kept inside these three markets but in the USA the close-up situation is different. The only things we saw in the USA were the first generation of Acuras, and there were finally civic Type R for 2017. So, there was some time when it comes to redesigning so we took some closer look in about how future 2019 Honda Accord Type R should look like.
The main highlights will be more aggressive fascia with Type R specific styling. There will be a better output over the range-topping models, stiffer suspension, manual transmission, and lower ride height. Having that in mind, the company is preparing some original models for next generations of Accord, but most details we will compete after the final launching.
2019 Honda Accord Type R Engine Specs
The new Accord will receive the best form of engine comparing with earlier models. The 2019 Honda Accord Type R will offer as much as 252 hp and 273 pound-feet of torque, which is more than its predecessors offer. The first Accord Type R was produced from ’98 to ’02, and it was sold solely in the UK and Europe. At the same time in Japan, there was a JDM version called Euro-R that used different chassis and was available only in Japan.
That model could deliver a 209 hp and 164 pound-feet of torque from a 2.2-liter four-cylinder while is Euro equivalent of gaining 217 hp. The main result will be upgrading motor with stronger performance and effective fuel reduce. The most important thing is introducing a piece of new machinery for the engine which will be more efficient without suffering oil losses.
New Exterior Design
After the intro of the 10th generation of Accord, Honda brought new design on market combining sporty design and updated technology. When it comes to releasing of new 2019 Honda Accord Type R, we can expect similar appearance but sportier than the previous model. The massive grille up front is here to stay, but it will get the traditional Type R badge and red Honda logo.
Down below, the smaller corner vents will be larger. Of course, these are more aggressive to offer more fierce appearance. An extra lip will also reside at the bottom of the fascia which helps provide the frontal downforce. The new Type R will be based on the range-topping model of the current line-up, so it will get the body colored mirrors and a moonroof. The front fenders will get gloss black vents to match, and rest of the parts will be combined in red.
2019 Honda Accord Type R Interior Redesign
The entire entrance of new 2019 Honda Accord Type R will be spacious and changed in many ways. The front seats are sporty and comfortable and cozy and every experienced driver will be fond of it. There should also be an aluminum shift knob and short-throw shifter to go with red details. The steering wheel will also contain red details, and the seatbelts will be made of carbon fiber materials which are safer than the current ones. New generation model will probably get the 8-inch infotainment display to go along with the seven-inch instrument cluster display.
The infotainment system will also get its own unique software to provide some useful details like sprint timer. There will be a new 6-inch head-up display and 4G-LTE internet connection with software updates. The audio department will be richer with the best system of 450-watt 10 speaker system with USB ports. An additional novelty is 16.7 cubic of cargo space and 105.6 cubic feet of passenger volume.
2019 Honda Accord Type R Price and Release Date
The new 2019 Honda Accord Type R will justify every dollar spent. The combo of materials and new technology will embrace new century and new components will attract many potential l buyers. The base model for Type R will start at $43,000 in the range-topping Touring trim level. The package will include navigation, Honda Sensing system, LED lights, and heated seats. This will also include the V6 engine which is stronger with greater output than the current one.
When it comes to official launching, the Honda did not specify the correct date and place of release. Therefore, we believe that mainly exposure should happen in Tokyo mainly and after that in Europe and USA. The main rival of the all-new Accord could be Ford Fusion Sport with basically same references. Comparing the price and other specs we believe that Accord will definitely be the decent rival for the eastern market.
