After spending a week in the brand new Accord back in the fall, we put the larger 2-litre engine through its paces to see which powerplant comes out on top.

      I purchased a 2.0T last month. Man , the performance is exhilarating.. You have to be very very watchful to not to make speed violation. Just like that the vehicle exceeds 85mph if u are not watchful.
      Aside this , steering response, handling corners , quick lane change manoeuvre are piece of cake in this car. Awesome .!!!👍

      In sport mode and heavy foot i get 22mpg.
      In Eco mode , with light foot , where gear upshifts at 2.5k rpm, mpg is 29 to 33 on intercity driving.
      2.0t is very sensitive to rpm i observed. If more mpg is target one must not exceed 3.5k rpm rpm at any gear.
      I have done 2k miles so far. Expecting improvement further.

      In the USA, the 2.0 is a $4500- option. I'll go with the 1.5 6 speed manual, as I don't trust CVTs for the long haul.

      Matt Howard Honda’s CVT isn’t as bad as you think. My brother owns a 2016 Honda Civic LX and it has nearly 70k miles on it with no major problems. He takes care of it a lot, so I’m not really surprised.

      That clicking engine noise is normal and is a characteristic of the direct injection system.

      Steven Parry good decision. Plus you get the ten speed auto transmission. Should last you years. Change that oil every 5k miles, even if the Manual says you can go 7.5k miles. I owned a Mazda Rx7 turbo, routine oil changes, lasted me 15 years.

      Steven Parry CVT, small turbo engines, it’s all about fuel economy, not performance. Turbos just won’t hold up as long as a non-turbo engine. The Mazda 6 is a much better car. 2.5 liter Engine, 6 speed auto transmission. Made in Japan. Honda does make the best CVT, if that’s what you really want. The A ccord will still probably last you 10 years, 100k miles unlike my 96 Accord, still going , shifts like new.

      We are looking at the Accord // Touring // 2.0 and 1.5 for the 2018 year..... we have looked at the prices and it seems like 2019 doesn't have a 1.5 option. Is there any reason engine or parts wise for fixing the 1.5 would be an issue? Your thoughts ???? Or why you would say it's crap..... just wondering. THX

      You stated what I was thinking during your review and that was how awesome the Accord would be in a manual transmission and sport/station wagon version.

      But Honda is known for relatively weak automatic transmissions. You bypass potential issues with a manual.

      No matter how many people try to spin this, it’s still ugly. Gone are the normally aspirated high rev vtec engines. Bye bye to the buttery smooth V6. Acura still has then though which is a good thing. Now you got this turbo four banger that Honda is shoving down your throats and last...CVT. Wow! The dumbing down of drivers who are now dependent on driving aids. People buying cuv/suv having false sense of security. These cuv are nothing more than jacked up compacts. Why would anyone sacrifice better handling with low center of gravity over these cute utes is beyond me. But this is just my opinion. Drive what you like. I just miss the good ol’ days of having fun driving. Oh, and we have a Subaru Outback with a CVT, good car but boring. I at least kept my 2015 Honda Accord EX-L V6 Coupe Automatic. Yep! Wanted a 6spd but it was difficult to find one and was too impatient to order one and wait around for it to arrive. I had a 2015 Mustang Ecoboost with direct injection. Sold it, didn’t want to have to deal with carbon build up. So now I think Lexus is looking tempting with the GS and the new ES.
      My advice, go with port and direct injection. If you love driving stay away from CVTs. If you have a large family to haul then by all means get a SUV. CUV’s might as well get an awd sedan, they’re just better handling which is safer than having a vehicle with a high center of gravity.

      My V 6 Accord totally rules over the 2.0 Turbo lawnmower. BIG mistake on part of Honda to take V 6 out. Guess what I am buying next -- yes, aha, V 6 Camry. yes, sir.

      Such an excellent car inside and out. Though the Stinger has my eye due to it's hatchback-like trunk. Add that to this Accord and change the taillights and it'd be perfect.

      Agree about the 19" wheels. I took it out for a test drive and was ready to walk away from the new accord until I tested the 17" model. I would have gladly bought the top of the line if they sold it with the 17" wheels. I wish I could have gotten a premium seat option - the seats are OK but I used to have an Acura and the seats were SOOOO much more comfy.
