2014 Honda Accord Sport 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl CVT)

Review

After test driving what some automotive magazines ranked as the top three automobiles in this class (Mazda6, Honda Accord and Nissan Altima), the Honda Accord Sport pleasantly surprised me by overtaking the number one pick for those same reviews: the Mazda6 iTouring. Having been a former Acura Legend owner, I felt right at home again behind the wheel of the Accord. The Sport's numbers outperform the Mazda not only on paper, but in driving tests as well. I felt solidly in control at all times behind the wheel of the Accord, even with electric power steering. Active noise cancellation helps to quiet the cabin as well. Fantastic car all around!

Favorite Features

-Sporty performance without compromising overall ride quality. -Excellent interior acoustics. ANC from the speaker system helps dampen road noise, while the tuned exhaust and intake system help to make a 4-cylinder engine sound gorgeous. -Lots of leg room in the rear seats. Superior cargo capacity in this class. -Intuitive interface (once adjusted to the "rotating" knob navigation) and beautifully designed graphical audio and phone interface. -Seamless integration with Pandora. No more taking your phone out of your pocket. -Gorgeous industrial design and styling inside and out. -Fantastic CVT performance. Paddle shifters are a refreshing change. -Superior Headlamps for halogen bulbs.

Suggested Improvements

-Overall fit and finish suffered due to Honda's investment in their new powertrain technology. One new Accord I tested had a door that would simply not close. Could be dealership related. -Interior material quality and durability is poorer than that of other rivals. -Chrome bezels on the center console make for beautiful accents. Unfortunately, they also reflect sunlight directly into the driver's eyes like a small mirror. -In the LX and Sport trims, interior illumination is lacking (front map lights do not come on with door open/unlock) -4 speaker system is nice for four speakers, but would like to see an upgrade option on the sport trim.
