2017 Honda Accord

Buyer's Guide

While sleek and stylish two-door versions of midsize cars were once commonplace, Honda's Accord Coupe stands alone in a class of one. Gone are the Nissan Altima Coupe, the Solara-based Camry Coupe, and even the Chevrolet Monte Carlo, leaving the Honda-badged soldier to tow the line for these more practical two-door machines. Nevertheless, this is a fine specimen of the breed.

While the Accord Coupe shares its underpinnings with the four-door sedan, it has a style that's all its own; the grille and nose are more aggressive, while the roofline is far swoopier.

It may not be as dramatic as some of the pony cars that it tends to get lumped in with as its closest rivals, like the Ford Mustang or Chevrolet Camaro, but the Accord Coupe has much to offer the practical-minded consumer. Provided rear seat riders aren't too tall, there's space for three across on the rear bench, and the luggage space isn't too far off the pace of a midsize sedan.

Having just been redesigned last year as a part of a comprehensive update, the Accord Coupe carries over into 2017. That update outfitted the Coupe with the latest in in-car technology including available emergency autonomous braking, radar cruise control, and lane-keeping assist via the Honda Sensing suite of technologies, plus a new state-of-the-art touchscreen system that features full Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. Certain models even come with Qi wireless device charging.

The standard-issue engine on the Accord Coupe is a 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine that produces 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual is standard equipment, with a CVT available as an optional extra. This is the engine used in the EX and the Touring..

A creamy-smooth 3.5-litre V6 is also available. Benefitting from direct fuel injection and cylinder deactivation, it produces 272 hp and 251 lb-ft of torque (252 lb-ft as an automatic) and consumes as little as 11.4 L/100 km city and 7.4 L/100 km highway. The V6 Accord Coupe can be had with a six-speed manual transmission (not offered on the Sedan), or a six-speed automatic transmission. With this engine, the Accord Coupe can scurry to 100 km/h from still in six seconds.

Despite having all that power route to the front wheels, the Accord Coupe manages to ward off pesky torque steer and vague steering. The steering is suitably dialed in, but the Accord Coupe is happy too, cruising highways at a more relaxed pace. It's quiet, swift, and in many ways is the modern reincarnation of the personal luxury car.

The EX trim features standard 18-inch wheels, a rear spoiler, full LED headlamps and brake lights, a sunroof, plus power front heated seats, Honda LaneWatch, and a reverse camera. The Touring trim can be differentiated by bigger 19-inch wheels, leather interior, driver's memory seat, and navigation.

Pricing for the 2017 Honda Accord Coupe starts at $27,490, and rise to $37,190 for the V6 Touring when equipped with the optional automatic.

2012 Honda Accord

Trim: EX-L
by Satisfied_owner on 10-11-2012
I love my Honda Accord -Solid and Consistent Performance
This is my second Honda Accord. Previously, I owned a used 2000 Honda Accord SE and after being spoiled with so many great features in the fully loaded model, it was hard to settle for something else. The car was so reliable, fuel efficient and comfortable (even after 350,000KM); it was hard to part with.
I thought I’d purchase something else this time. I had many vehicles saved in 'My Garage’ on the autoTrader.ca iPhone app (which I love). I narrowed it down to 4 different vehicles which I had read up on and taken for test drives. When it came down to making a final decision, I realized I had wasted my time looking at the other cars. I’m so happy with my new fully loaded 2012 Honda Accord EX-L.
Some features include quality leather, dual air climate controls, 6 in-dash CD player, sunroof, voice command, blue tooth, usb/ iPod interface, XMradio, back-up camera and GPS. It has a good size gas tank and great gas mileage. It’s so spacious and comfortable; great for someone like me who enjoys luxury and long-distance travelling. I would definitely recommend this car to a friend.

1992 Honda Accord

Trim: EX
by BigJim on 10-11-2012
Reliable and fuel efficient
The Honda Accord EX is a great 2 door sports sedan. Reliable, great on fuel and relatively low maintenance. I bought the car second hand and droive it for three years without any issues. It handled well in the rain and snow and was rarely in the shop. I would recommend this car to anyone interested in a reliable, fuel friendly vehicle thats also fun to drive.

2002 Honda Accord

Trim: V6
by dumdau on 10-11-2012
Reliable and durable
The Honda Accord V6 I had driven in the past was a 2002 model, what seems to be the last generation where there were very few recalls,etc.

The car was still doing fine even with 100k mileage on its odometer. There was relatively very few issues with the car even after a few years.

The interior design wasn't bad for cars from that time and at its class.

Overall I think it makes pretty good second hand car as it's quite reliable.
