2017 Honda Accord Coupe Test Drive Review

Before we even get into this, we have to say that the Honda Accord Coupe is one of our favorite sports cars in this segment. Now depending on which Honda Accord Coupe model you buy, the price may run you close to the likes of the Chevrolet Camaro, Ford Mustang, or the Toyota 86. However, the Honda Accord stands out for being less visually sporty, home to a front-wheel drive layout, and having comfortable ride quality.

For the 2017 model year, the Honda Accord gets an upgraded exterior design, a quality built interior with upgraded technology, and a strong list of driver assistance technologies. When compared to its competitors, the 2017 Honda Accord Coupe is all about reliability rather than a sports car that gets you from point A to point B in the quickest way possible. Let’s take a closer look at the all-new 2017 Honda Accord Coupe.

Exterior:

For the 2017 model year, the Honda Accord Coupe gets an all new front end that is highlighted by an aggressive grille design with optional LED headlights and daytime running lights. Further exterior enhancements include muscular shoulders, deep bodylines, and sleek and smooth curves. The rear end of the 2017 Honda Accord Coupe also features a very aerodynamic lip spoiler that is built into the trunk lid. The taillights feature integrated LED light bars that give the new 2017 Honda Accord Coupe a luxury look when seen from the back.

Prior to the 2017 model, the Honda Accord Coupe was beginning to become dated. However, this design is the perfect answer with its sporty yet elegant stance.

The 2017 Honda Accord Coupe sits on a wheelbase that measures 107.3 inches with an overall length of 189.5 inches. The height comes in at 56.5 inches while the overall width comes in at 73 inches.

Yes, this isn’t an aggressive looking Camaro or a mean looking Ford Mustang, but the Honda Accord Coupe definitely has a fan base that appreciates this coupe.

The Honda Accord EX adds a one-touch power moonroof, Honda LaneWatch, and a ten-way power driver’s seat. The Honda Accord EX-L adds leather trimmed seats, a leather steering wheel, heated front seats, and auto-dimming mirrors. The top of the line Honda Touring adds a navigation system and standard Honda Sensing safety suite.

Performance:

The 2017 Honda Accord Coupe is powered by two engine choices that have been carried over from the previous model. That’s not a bad thing since both engines are very capable. Standard on the Honda Accord Coupe LX-S, EX, and EX-L is a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine making 184 horsepower. The EX-L V6 and the Touring come standard with a 3.5-liter V6 engine making 278 horsepower. All model can be had with a six-speed manual, CVT, or a six-speed automatic transmission. 

The V6 models offer outstanding performance with the ability to go from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.6 seconds with a top speed of 127 mph. We highly recommend the V6 models for their amazing performance, smooth acceleration, and exhilarating driving dynamics.

Fuel economy-wise, the Honda Accord Coupe with a four-cylinder engine offers an EPA-estimated 26/34 mpg* with a CVT transmission or 21/32* mpg* for the V6 with the six-speed automatic.
