The new Accord Coupe hole goes quite quickly, accelerating from 0-60 mph in a respectable 6.6 seconds exactly 1 second slower than a manual Accord Coupe V -6, and a tenth of a second faster than the Accord sedan with -4 and my gearbox six speeds. The agreement of two doors, complete the quarter mile in 15.1 seconds at 92.6 mph-not exactly fast, but it is just 0.1 seconds behind the slowest 2012 Civic Si we tested last year. The Accord Coupe needed just 121 meters until you reach a stop from 60 mph.
With less weight in the nose, it is not surprising that the Accord Coupe EX V-6-powered siblings when handling tests exceeded. The V-6 Accord weighs 3367 pounds compared to I -4 3201 pounds, the four top rollers front / rear weight distribution, in addition to reducing weight. The two doors 0.88 g average on the skidpad, and achieved eight total 26.7 seconds at 0.65 g (average) against V-6 Accord Coupe 27.0 seconds time, but not your average 0.68 g.

The agreement was quiet and comfortable in almost any road surface noise typical Honda throw and is a very attenuated way. The Coupe was efficient, although the compensation of a journey-Computers-indicates 29.5 mpg during its stay with us, just a hair above its 28 mpg combined rating. Unfortunately, unlike Honda yesterday, this Agreement will not win any praise for steering feel. Your opinion is best described as weak and lifeless, and incomplete-deaf on winding roads. The coupe handles quite well, if you trust that the wheels do what they tell them to do, to learn, but overall we were to leave you feeling stronger, or at least one sport button. Accord Management feels disappointed enthusiasts, but the average buyer probably not smart.
Inside, the Accord Coupe is a nice place in general. The cabin is well finished, the cloth seats are comfortable on long trips, and the rear seats are suitable for most people under six feet tall. Our only real complaint with the Agreement within their arms are mounted on the door hard and two screens of the infotainment system. We’re looking at two screens, but no complaints navigation system seems doubly useless. ” It’s stupid to confirm warnings when the car does not have nav” said co -editor Allyson Harwood, ” a warning about distraction if you think you have not distract the navigation screen ? ” On the other hand, the function Bluetooth was a little less intuitive, sometimes refuses to listen to the radio for phone calls.
The Honda Accord Coupe 2014 is an easy recommendation for me to friends who feel the need to grow faster. It’s comfortable, fun to drive, and meaningful. That also makes it a bit boring, especially when you consider the FR- S is going for the same price with the same level of equipment.
