NEW FOR 2015:

– Tiger Eye Pearl and Alabaster Silver Metallic paint colours discontinued.

One of the last-standing midsize coupes on the market, the Accord Coupe carries over into 2015 without any changes.

There’s much to like about the latest version of the two-door Accord. Although it’s based on a practical and spacious family sedan, its swoopier styling and elegant interior lend it the feel of a near-luxury automobile rather than something mainstream. It also has decent manners on the road; it may not have the balance of the rear-drive Hyundai Genesis Coupe, but the Accord is sporting enough to put a smile on your face – especially the V6 with the six-speed manual.

There are three trim levels offered for the Accord Coupe. EX and EX-L Navi models feature a 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine (185 hp/181 lb-ft) with direct injection mated to a six-speed manual transmission as standard, with an optional continuously variable transmission available. The EX-L V6 Navi V6 is available with a 3.5-litre V6 engine (278 hp/252 lb-ft) mated to either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic. All trims are front-wheel drive.

Features on the EX include 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels, econ mode button, eco-assist driving coach, immobilizer theft-deterrent system, security system, chrome door handles, body coloured power heated folding door mirrors with turn signal indicators, front fog lights, moonroof, trunk spoiler, rear window defroster, active noise cancellation, dual-zone automatic climate control, power door locks, power windows with auto-up/down driver and passenger windows, proximity key with push-button start, cruise control with steering wheel mounted controls, multi angle rear camera, HandsFreeLink, exterior temperature indicator, auto-on/off headlights, smart maintenance alert, map lights, tilt/telescopic steering column, eight-way power driver seat, four-way manual passenger seat, heated front seats, seven-speaker AM/FM/CD/MP3/WMA audio with subwoofer and 8.0-inch LCD display, HondaLink with touchscreen, text message/email capability, Aha radio, steering wheel mounted audio controls with illumination, satellite radio, USB and auxiliary input jacks.

EX-L Navi adds navigation as well as Lane Watch blind spot monitor, forward collision warning system, lane departure warning system, auto-dimming rear view mirror, driver seat position memory, leather upholstery, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

EX-L V6 Navi adds 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels, LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, dual exhaust finishers, and garage door opener.
