Peppy 4-cyl, like the design
By volvowner on
2009 Honda Accord LX-S 2dr Coupe (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
I've owned a few Accords, and this one is the most fun to drive. The 4-cyl engine has plenty of power for everyday driving, with surprising acceleration off the line. Honda is not typically known for its attractive designs -- usually you had to go to Acura for that -- but the coupe is pretty sharp looking. So far the car has been everything I expected and more. The coupe has some compromises in back seat room, and it's unfortunate that Honda doesn't offer a fully adjustable driver's seat unless you get the leather package. Road noise is always an issue with Hondas, and this one's no exception even though it has the noise canceling feature (great idea, can't hear much effect).
Refined powerful 4-cyl powertrain, confident handling, safety features, attractive coupe design, expectation of typical Honda reliability.
USB connection, HD radio, less road noise, and c'mon Honda, don't make people buy leather and a sunroof to get a fully adjustable seat.
