I'll be reviewing Honda's brand new 2018 /2019 Honda Accord Touring edition equipped with the 2.0T engine. This is the same engine from a Civic Type R and it offers amazing performance in a family sedan! This is an amazing car and you'll see why it has the perfect balance of speed, utility, comfort and amenities.

      Just wanted you to know I purchased the 2019...Your knowledge and review tipped the scale for my purchase. Again thank you and have a good day! Also my wheels are hollow/ different design for reduced NOISE in the car.

      The wheels and spoiler on this vehicle you reviewed are not factory. Those are both dealership add-ons. The touring does have 19" wheels like the sport does, but they're not blacked out like on this car.

      The only trim level that matters. But I definitely like last generation's refaced version. If it has CVT, it's not a Honda.

      @Edwin Medina Thanks! I'm looking at the 2.0 Accord or the Touring Civic sedan. However, if I get the Civic, I want the darkened version of the rims that the Sport trim of the coupe/sedan has, as well as the Sport and Sport Touring of the hatchback. Problem is that the stupid dealer won't let me switch them. I have to buy the ones that I want as an "accessory" and only get a 50-dollar credit per wheel/rim for the ones that I'd return.

      You can get those rims at the dealership or before purchase of the vehicle. I went with the chrome wheels instead with my silver lunar color. Love this car!

      Those are NOT stock wheels. I know, because i own a new 2019 2.0. Those "mods" are seriously ugly as shit. Wheels and that dumb as side garnish looks like something on a $15000 Kia.

      @Legend17 lol I was trying to compliment the size of the accord and comparing it to a ridgeline because a ridgeline ain't a small truck/suv/minivan or however people want to categorize it. Anyways as long as you enjoy yours then that's all that matters.

      Love my 2.0 EX-L w/Navi. Leased it as opposed to the Touring edition because of the big lease cost differential. My only significant negative to this terrific sedan is the tendency for the radar module to become obscured when snow is wet, shutting down cruise and braking/accident mitigation. In a bonafide Buffalo blizzard last week, radar worked fine because the low-density, fluffy snow doesn't cling to the exposed module and the system worked fine. Previous grill design seemed to shelter the module better from the elements...the radar warning only came on twice in my 3 year lease. This past November in my new Accord, it came on repeatedly during minor, wet snow. Oh, yes, the other flaw is still too much road noise on coarse pavement. Wonderfully quiet on asphalt/smooth pavement. Fabulous value, every drive is a pleasure, no body roll, excellent handling, braking, and incredible power when needed. 29 mpg in mixed driving in warm weather, less in the dead of winter.

      Ghost227 I have the feeling if I had tested out the touring edition some of its features would be missed. What I don’t know won’t hurt me. The sales manager at my Honda dealer said he would be delighted to lease me a touring edition but he didn’t think it was worth the $100 extra per month, which is quite significant. Plus I have read several reviews which state the touring edition’s 19 inch rims plus computerized suspension make for a harsher ride. At my age the harsh ride would bother me. The EX-L with Navi is quite firm enough and handles beautifully for a family sedan. Minus the Touring add-ons It is still quite luxurious and tight handling for a car in its class. As I wrote, there is still too much road noise on coarse pavement which annoys me during nice musical passages. But it is quieter than my previous 2016 edition, save for the 2.0T. The latter can’t duplicate the V 6 for silkiness but man, NOTHING is lost in this great powertrain. The 10 speed can be driven like a little old lady for economy or it can blast you 0-60 in 5.5 seconds.

      How's the car handle in winter snow? I'm in the Appalachian region and get the occasional heavy snow... Granted, I'm sure it's nowhere near as much as you guys get. I'd also venture a guess that up north the Dept of Highways is much more capable and prepared for snow removal.

      I'm tempting the idea of trading a Subaru STI for this family friendly sedan. Your thoughts on snowy traversing?

      Great video! You showed stuff others didn't about the Accord Touring 2.0T. It is an amazing car and I picked up a 2019 model last month. This car is fun to drive and doesn't stand out at the traffic light. In regular mode its fast, in Sport mode hold on. Really impressed with this Honda Accord. Doesn't need 91+ octane gas either like some performance cars. I really enjoyed your work on this video.

      The following are not standard and are only installed aftermarket. Based on the model they provided you: Wheels, spoiler, Dark chrome across the exhausts. Front grill. The car comes with SOME of them but in different style. They should have told you that the car was upgraded with all those after market options.

      @Drivers Only Seriously? Ok. Not me, I look at them once when I get in the car for the first time, after that, I simply reference my memory and slide my hand down to the side to adjust. However, my last three cars have had one-touch seat memory for two or three drivers. my last two vehicles would recognize the fob unlocking/starting the car and automatically move the driver's seat away from the steering wheel to allow for easier ingress and egress from the car as well as moving the driver's seat to the appropriate preset settings upon ignition.

      Mysteriously, I have watched probably 50 reviews by now, and None of these purely independent and not steered along by any script reviewers have bothered to test the stereo. Yet they All mention the temperature control colors and usually talk about how it shows how much attention to detail there is to the car.

      The closest I found to them testing it was mentioning that the Touring - the absolute top trim, has a great sound system and anything below it has significantly less sound (no subwoofer for example, apparently, in anything below the Touring edition).
