I am amazed with the practicality of the Accord! It has the best of both worlds: It is definitely fast, handles very well, and has a tight ride; on the other hand, it has ample back seat room, a cavernous trunk, and features normally found on more luxury models. I was originally looking at the Infiniti G35 but decided the extra ponies wasn't worth having back seat passengers hit their heads on the back windshield. The Accord is almost as fast while offering a lot more comfort. You really can't go wrong with this car!
Most of the standard features of this trim level - leather is very good quality, radio is good, climate control is very effective, acceleration is better than one would expect.
Honda really shouldn't make the XM radio standard on this model. I would imagine most people really aren't interested in this feature as it requires a small "box" on the roof of the vehicle. Also, it would be nice to have power on the passenger seat too.
