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.

      @Frieder Bluemle - it's a big enough issue that the Chinese government prohibited Honda from selling these engines which means Honda had to do a recall.

      accord 1.5t manual transmission owner here. Love my Accord. I live in Texas and do 95% city driving. 30.5 mpg. 2.0t just isn’t a worthwhile upgrade.

      P.S., Ironic for Toyota to mention cost of ownership. Camry is $600 a year more expensive than Accord on insurance...Yes I double checked and compared them when I was car shopping.

      I'm one of the 5 percent of those Canadians. I test drove the 2.0T and the 10-speed. It was nice even with the weird alphabet selector buttons, but the turbo delay and rubber band effect with the 10-speed make it feel a bit more unpredictable when transitioning into power than I'd like. I know the 0 to 60 times on the auto are better, but magazine racing is best for magazines. Even though it doesn't have a pull handle parking brake any more I'd still rather have a manual in the snow with proper winter tires than an auto with a bunch of algorithms trying to figure out how to best drive it for me. Also Honda makes really good manuals with low clutch effort and an easy engagement.

      Don't care if it's Ford or Honda, turbos suck balls. That tablet glued to the dash "screen" looks like ass. Not nice ass like a shapely female rump, but like a big fat guy whose giant crack is spilling out of his stained sweatpants. As for rain sensing lane departure backup camera auto-opening smoke detecting ashtrays, who gives a shit? Is there anyone else who wishes car makers would make cars better, rather than simply more complex? These turbo engines will be giving trouble in 3-4 years. A fair chunk won't be working at all in 5-6 years. A well designed NA v6 will produce effortless power and miles for an easy 10 years. Christ it has a CVT too? What a piece of shit. Lay your money down, which will fail first the CVT or the 10 speed slush box? Canadians are broke, the govt takes all our money , we usually by the cheaper car.

      For anyone considering this car, I have just purchased the 1.5 L manual...and it is FUN! If I take the Eco mode off, she's quick off the line or going down an entrance ramp. Very responsive in the corners. As for fuel efficiency, when on the highway with eco mode on, I'm avg about 45 mpg!! I love this car 😍

      I own a 2019 sport 2.0t 6mt and I concur that the manual is a total blast to drive. Mine is san marino red. I routinely beat cars off the line that are left dazed and confused. I get a kick out of it every time. 1st gear has some wheel hop but 2nd and 3rd pull like a rocket.

      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 .!!!👍

      @N1N0 Z
      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.

      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.

      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.

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

      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.
