2010 Accord Overview

2010 Honda Accord Coupe - Click above for high-res image gallery "It's the journalist special." That phrase, coined by our own senior editor, quite accurately sums up our initial impression of the Honda Accord Coupe EX-L V6 w/Navi 6MT (breathe). The Accord may be one of the best-selling cars in America, but we'll bet our bottom dollar that only a very, very small percent of the already meager coupe sales are made up of expensive EX-L Navi models fitted with the manual transmission. But give or take a few nitpicky options, this is the way we'd spec our own Accord Coupe if asked to. Sure, it may seem that Honda outfitted this car just for us, but as we found out in our week-long test, there are plenty of reasons to like the two-door Accord. It's like vanilla ice cream with chocolate syrup on top – the safe, reliable, trusty Accord underpinnings with an extra helping of sweet stuff. Honda knows it isn't going to move many two-doors equipped like this, but we think potential Accord Coupe buyers would be wise to check out the V6/manual package. Follow the jump to find out why. %Gallery-91404% Photos by Steven J. Ewing / Copyright ©2010 Weblogs, Inc. In creating the coupe, Honda made a lot of aesthetic improvements to the Accord beyond simply lobbing off the two rear doors. New fascias front and rear add a healthy dose of sex appeal to the Accord body, and the handsome ten-spoke wheels of our top-trim test car nicely round off the package. We wish Honda would adopt this design language for the more popular sedan, but we understand the automaker's conservative approach in styling the high-selling four-door. In the land of Camry and Altima, non-offensive design goes a long way to attract the widest range of consumers. Still, we're happy that Honda opted for the Express catalog rather than the Sears catalog when picking out the Accord Coupe's clothes. Smaller headlamps and the rakish rear end go a long way in transforming the coupe into a more upscale-looking machine. It's simply sharp. The biggest accomplishment of the sleeker design is that it does a good job of masking the Accord Coupe's relatively large proportions while still managing to be much more stylish than its stablemates. At 190.9 inches long, 72.8 inches wide and 56.4 inches tall, the coupe is only slightly larger than its closest competitor, the Nissan Altima Coupe, and if we're judging, the Honda barely wins the beauty contest. So while the exterior styling gets a thumbs-up, the Accord's cabin still gives us mixed feelings. Without a doubt, Honda makes some of the most buttoned-down, well-built interiors on the market, but we had a hard time warming up to the obtrusive center stack awash with buttons and knobs. Our tester came equipped with Honda's navigation system, which uses a relatively large screen set back into the dash with all of the functional bits laid out on the center stack. We won't …
