Honda Accord SE'12
By n_k on
2012 Honda Accord SE 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
Super Smooth engine, refined ride quality. Respectable fuel economy from a 5 speed trans. Surprising that both 177HP and 190HP 4cyl share same fuel economy. Leather trim looks/feels sharp. Torque on up-hill start tends to kick-in at higher RPM's.
Auto Up/Down for Driver and Passenger. Pass thru in rear seat to trunk. USB interface. Pull/Push for fuel cap and trunk. Excellent all round visibility.
Obviously, six or eight speed transmission !!!!! for even better fuel economy. For Accord being made in almost full size dimensions, I expect Honda to have used the available/could be made available space more judiciously. They can increase the front/rear legroom to more than 45" considering there is almost a foot space left unused behind the engine. Xenon/LED Lamps may be !!! Whats up with the button layout on the dash. As much as it make things simple, come on .... look at 2012 Volvo S60 or Sonata. Should I even start on making B'Tooth and Temp gauge std on all trims. Map lights have to turned on one by one; could use a button to turn on when doors open or at will. Make 190-200hp 4cyl Std.
