2017 Honda Accord Coupe: Where Sport Meets LuxuryAccord May 30th, 2017
If you’ve ever felt like you had to decide between driving a sports car or a luxury car, then the 2017 Honda Coupe just made the decision easier. You can do both. In the same car.
Not Afraid of Curves
The 2017 Honda Accord not only takes the curves with ease, it is designed to be curvy for a sportier appearance than the traditional Accord sedan. In fact, these curves are there for a reason. They help make the Accord Coupe attractive from every angle. The deep body lines draw your attention away from the muscular shoulders and along to the sloped rear. The wheels are styled to give the illusion of movement even when it’s standing still at a stoplight.
The rear end has been designed using racing technology for aerodynamics and, combined with the rear spoiler, keeps the rear end firmly planted on the pavement as you swing through traffic. The bumper is home to parking sensors that alert you when you get too close to another object while parking.
Other safety features on the back include an integrated LED light bar.
The grille puts on a face that is serious about performance. It is home to available LED headlamps and daytime running lights. LED fog lamps cut the way through low visibility patches.
Chrome grille and door handles add that extra touch of luxury. It comes in five stunning colours.
Under the Hood
With Earth Dreams technology behind it, what’s under the hood of the Honda Accord Coupe can be counted on to deliver driving excellence. The EX-L V6 delivers 278 horses to your driveway. The 3.5-litre 24-valve SOCH i-VETC® engine in the touring coupe puts powerful forces at your fingertips. This engine can be paired with a 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic with Grade Logic Control for quick adaptation to differing road grades. This is particularly useful if you plan to do any mountain driving.
When Honda set up the driver’s seat and dash, they put everything you need right in front of you. The gauges are a combination of analogue and digital for quick reads at a glance. It’s easy to see your speed when the red needle swings upward.
It doesn’t matter what is on the dash if the seat under you is stiff and uncomfortable. You can count on Honda to offer a plush, cushy seat that lets you settle in for a long trek across the country or a jaunt to get a cup of Tim Hortons’ brew.
The seats are heated, so when cold mornings come around again, you’re ready for them. Available 10-way power adjustments on the driver’s seat help you find a spot and keep it there. It can remember two driver’s preferences, so there is never any fumbling to find that sweet spot again.
You know that Honda is synonymous with safety, so it should be no surprise that the Accord has a portfolio filled with awards. On the Accord’s 40th anniversary, Kelley Blue Book gave the 2017 Best Buy for a Midsize award, and the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety made it a 2017 Top Safety Pick as long as it had front crash prevention installed.
There are a lot of reasons to get behind the wheel of the 2017 Honda Accord Coupe, but the number one reason is that will make summer driving so much more fun. Stop by and see us for a test drive today.
