I don't exactly understand the difference between this car and the Accord, other than this one is more expensive and smaller.
Read the magazine reviews, they are all correct, terrible steering, too much roadnoise, SLOW. 201 hp in with a 5 speed auto??
NOT A PREMIUM CAR. Cheap leather on the seats, plastic door handles.
The best feature, SAFETY, I crashed mine at about 45 mph and it kept me safe, maybe it was the cars way of apologizing for the utter failure this car was? Totaled and it was the best thing I ever did, sad to say. Acura and Honda need to get it together. I was a loyal fan of them, not after this and my RSX.
Crash Safety, HID's....thats it. Smooth underpowered engine. its refined though.
Better interior materials. No upgrade from a honda. Better driving dynamics, if not improve the ride quality. Reduce road noise, and NOT with active noise cancellation, use real sound deadening materials, don't be cheap, Honda.
