2008 Accord Overview

Click above for high-res gallery of the 2008 Honda Accord Coupe Honda's Accord has grown at every redo since the model's inception, and this latest version is no different. We've already tried out the sedan, so we borrowed the two-door version to sample the Coupé lifestyle, wherein you actually pronounce those acute accents. Our first impression is that the Accord Coupe is the best Monte Carlo never made, while retaining a fundamental core of Hondaness. Accords have always been half cool, half dorky, with the scale tipping one way or another depending on the generation. This latest one continues that trend, and we wanted to find out if the 2008 Accord Coupe is crushingly cool or heavily noisome. %Gallery-19459% All photos © 2008 Dan Roth / Weblogs, Inc. click any image to enlarge The last time the Accord Coupe looked lithe was two generations ago, and the new one is much, much larger than the tiny thing it started out as so many years ago. Even though the coupe is down a couple inches in both wheelbase and overall length on the sedan, size is on par with the BMW 6-Series! It's not just the overall footprint that takes its inspiration from BMW, there are also Roundel styling touches. The roofline is classic two-door, with a chrome accent and a euro-chic kick at the base of the C-Pillar. The nose treatment's inherent aggression works well on the Coupe, with its raked back windscreen and fast roofline. Honda's design idiom has traded frippery for lines that are classically attractive; this big two-door will look just as sharp in ten years. Your angle of attack is important when coming up on the Accord Coupe, else the car looks awkward instead of bold. From the rear, there are fat haunches and chamfered corners with large taillights that lead the eye directly to a deep character line gesturing down the bodysides and imparting a lunging stance. Twin chromed tailpipes add symmetry, and a subtle lip spoiler squares off the slightly bulbous trunklid. The rear cargo hold is quite accommodating, and the shape of the opening allows surprisingly large and bulky items to fit. Up front is where most of the ungainliness occurs. Angry eye headlamps and an underbiting airdam can dwarf the wheels and make the stance seem narrow - no mean feat when you're rolling 18-inch rims. Being a coupe, space in the interior suffers, but the Accoupe forces as little compromise as possible. It's easier to climb into the backseat from the passenger side due to the lack of a power seat for whoever rides shotgun. A flick of the wrist folds and slides the front passenger seat out of the way, offering entry to the grown-up sized back seat; there's just plenty of room in the Accord Coupe. Climbing over the sill and into the back will never be graceful, but Honda's done about all it could to facilitate ingress and egress. If a coupe is on your wishlist, you're likely …
