The new 4-cylinder engine is peppy enough and while Honda claims that it’s faster than any of its competitors, it’s probably such a slight margin that it wouldn’t be noticeable on a normal basis. As for the V6, when equipped with a manual transmission on the coupe, it’s an absolute riot! The big question for many will be the CVT transmission paired with the 4-cylinder engine. Obviously done for the sake of fuel efficiency, it does seem unlike Honda to go that direction with the Accord. However, we’re happy to report that the combination is quite good!
