After doing months of research, I finally settled on the 2013 Accord Sport and I don't regret it one bit.
I got the metallic grey colour and I must say it is extremely sexy. To me the design is the perfect mix of being not too conservative but not too trendy.
The interior quality is great. Soft touch all around. Couldn't be happier with it.
The ride is firm and steering as natural (hydraulic) as possible for EPS. Also, this car is SOLID in turns yet it feels very lightweight. It's weird. I can see the firmness being mistaken for being too harsh though since this feels more german than most mainstream midsize cars. I personally love it and it feels like a driver's car.
Standard backup camera with guidelines.
My only complaint is that the seats do not extend long enough so they are uncomfortable for 4 hour trips.
