The six-speed manual gearbox equipped 2014 Honda Accord Coupe comes in any color you want as long as it’s black. Standard equipment includes fog lights, a power moon-roof, hands-free keyless entry, multi-view rearview camera, auto start and stop button. Save with no optional extras available for add-on accessories such as cargo nets, our Accord Coupe tester costs a reasonable $ 25.815. 2014 Honda Accord Coupe Front three quarters We tested most of the new 2014 Honda Accord lineup, including a V-6-powered Accord Coupe, during our Car of the Year test, but we could not our hands on a higher volume four-cylinder Coupe at the time – let alone one with a manual transmission. Equipped with the new “Earth Dreams” 2.4-liter I-4, the 2014 Honda Accord Coupe makes 185 hp and 181 pounds-ft of torque. Although Honda’s new CVT is very good things for a CVT our tester came equipped with the smooth six-speed manual gearbox happy.

The 2014 Honda Accord Coupe get out of the hole pretty quickly, accelerating 0-60 mph in a respectable 6.6 seconds, exactly one second slower than a V-6 manual Accord Coupe and a tenth of a second faster than an Accord sedan with the I-4 and six-speed gearbox. The two-door Accord complete the quarter mile in 15.1 seconds at 92.6 mph – not exactly fast, but it’s only 0.1 seconds behind the slowest 2012 Civic Si we tested last year. The Accord Coupe needed only 121 feet to a halt from 60 mph.

With less weight on the nose, it is not surprising that the 2014 Honda Accord Coupe exported from its V-6-powered brother when handling tests. The V-6 Accord weighs 3367 pounds compared to the I-4’s 3201 pounds, the four-banger a better front / rear weight distribution in addition to the reduced weight. The two average 0.88 g on the slide, and managed to complete the figure eight in 26.7 seconds at 0.65 g, beat the V-6 Accord Coupe’s 27.0-second time, but not 0.68 avg g. On the road, the Accord Coupe is nice and easy to drive perfectly sensible young drivers. It touches the line quickly and without drama, and the only trace of torque sent to wide open throttle. The six-speed manual gearbox is one of the best in the business, throw a crisp, light and easy clutch pick-up stuck in traffic is less of a chore. Associate online editor Alex Nishimoto echo my sentiments: “The first thing I noticed when I pulled out of the MT garage smooth six-speed manual gearbox was changing gears felt intuitive and precise, almost as if the shifter is guided by magnets.”

Inside, the 2014 Honda Accord Coupe is a generally nice place to be. The cabin is well finished, the cloth seats are comfortable on long journeys, and the rear seats are suitable for most individuals under six feet tall. Our only real complaints with the Accord’s interior is hard-mounted armrests and his two-screen infotainment system. We complained about the twin screens, but without a navigation system (there is not one available on the ex trim level) it seems doubly useless. “It’s stupid that you recognize warning when the car is not a NAV,” says associate editor Allyson Harwood, “a warning about the distraction if you have no nav screen to guide you?” Moreover, the Bluetooth feature was a little less than intuitive, at times refusing to resume playing the radio to the phone calls.

The 2014 Honda Accord Coupe is an easy recommendation for me to make friends who feel the need to quickly. It’s comfortable, fun to drive, and meaningful. It also makes it a bit boring, especially if you look at the FR-S is going for about the same price with a similar level of equipment. Finally, people who have a Accord Coupe consider themselves grown up thinking for the Scion’s boy racer antics, the making the Accord a solid buy. “It’s not as soft as a family sedan,” Harwood said, “but for someone with something a little more growth as it wants, but do not want something too big, it might be a good option . ”
