The Accord Coupe’s two-door shape is not the only sporting detail. There are 17 and 18-inch alloy wheels, plus front fog lights that illuminate more of the road during poor light. LED daytime running lights also help the car to be seen in all conditions. They are joined by an elegant chrome front grille and door handles. A sunroof with tilt brings light and fresh air into the cabin, while at the back there is a subtle ‘duck tail’ spoiler above the trunk lid.
This advanced car arrives fitted with an abundance of technology to make it a major player in its car class. A premium seven-speaker sound system features in all versions; drivers can link their own music player via the USB or auxiliary input jack. An intelligent Multi-Information Display (i-MID) shows infotainment details clearly on the dashboard.
With a hands-free Bluetooth® system, it is far safer to take calls while on the move. Satellite navigation has been added to the 3.5-litre EX model to help buyers reach any destination via the easiest route.
A choice of two carefully-engineered engines are offered to enable motorists to match performance to their preferred driving style. The 2.4-litre i-VTEC petrol unit produces 185bhp, which is sent to the road through the smooth Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). This gearbox delivers a satisfying pull during acceleration, as well as economical returns. For extra power, a 3.5-litre V6 with 278bhp can be chosen instead. With this powertrain, the front wheels are driven with the help of a six-speed automatic gearbox.
Honda is known for its impressive safety record and the Accord Coupe only strengthens this reputation. To prevent accidents, the manufacturer has included its most intelligent active technology. Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) corrects understeer and oversteer to help keep the car moving in a straight line. Should the driver need to brake heavily, the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) helps the Accord Coupe to stop quickly and without a loss of control. All models also come fitted with Tire Pressure Monitoring System to warn drivers in the event of a puncture.
For optimum crash protection, the car features a front, side and curtain airbag system alongside three-point seatbelts. The 3.5 V6 EX has an optional Honda Sensing system, which includes features such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Mitigation Braking System, Lane Keep Assist System and Road Departure Mitigation.
