YUCK....what in the 3ell is Honda thinking? Drop the V6, use a 2.0L turbo that puts out 25HP less....plus this butt ugly design. Better get a V6 now because they will be going up, up and away with the V6 price. Dang it....really liked Honda...may have to just switch to the Civic or CRV....

I dunno, man, the 2018 Camry looks ghastly to me too. The D-segment is not one where you can go crazy with styling...

Hondas keep getting uglier with every model redesign.

It will most likely sell like hot cakes. Most people have no clue, nor care, what's under the bonnet. Looks are highly subjective, so there is no point commenting on that.

Seems to me lately that a lot of cars all look very similar. The days of unique styling are gone. Welcome to cookie cutter box mentality.

Get a new V6 Accord while you can. You can still get a V6 in the 2018 Acura TLX.
My wife had an 04' Accord Coupe V6 with a stick. Her only complaint was not liking the comfort of the drivers seat.

If VW does one thing right, they use conservative styling on some models. It'd be nice if the Accord looked like this 2018 Jetta:

Their 2 liter engine actually puts out more power than the Mercedes E-300, seems that with the tougher CAFE standards, lots of automakers are moving away from V6 and just doing 4 cylinders. MB's 2 liter engine only does 241 hp instead of Accord's 252 hp.

It's ok...not great, but not bad - better looking than the Camry IMHO.
Looks more Audi A7ish to me.
