The playful and engaging Accord offers more than you’d expect, no matter how much you spend. A 185-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder and six-speed manual are standard in both the coupe and sedan; Sport models get a slight bump to 189 hp. A CVT is optional as is a 278-hp 3.5-liter V-6 paired to a six-speed automatic. EX and above models feature Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to help with connectivity, but some may find the button-less infotainment system annoying and fussy.The spate of improvements goes beyond the typical fascia revisions and new lights, although those are present and give the 2016 model a spiffier look. Also included in the makeover are revisions to the base four-cylinder’s CVT, structural reinforcements, and suspension changes that are supposed to sharpen the handling.
The Sport and Touring models ride on sexy, new five-spoke 19-inch wheels wrapped by 235/40R-19 tires, which combine with chassis changes made across the 2016 Accord sedan range (high-performance dampers, the aforementioned bracing, and tweaks to the electric steering) to make it feel even more visceral than its predecessor. The 189-hp 2.4-liter four-banger also sounds great—partially on account of active sound amplification—as it revs to its 6800-rpm redline.
A low-profile decklid spoiler, dual exhaust tips, and side-sill extensions help the Sport model look the part, too, especially in the newly available San Marino Red that can’t be had on other models. Inside, carbon-fiber-esque trim adds a dose of intensity to the squared-off interior architecture without looking cheesy or cheap, although many of the cabin’s lower interior panels unfortunately remain hard, shiny plastic.
