We test drove the Honda Accord and didn’t want to return it!
This year we’ve tested out a couple different rides so far and when we were on our way to Semiahmoo Resort, we booked the latest Honda Accord Coupe Touring V6 2016.
This is a zippy number with a 3.5-liter V-6 engine; 278 hp, 252 lb-ft and a 6-speed automatic transmission. It looks expensive, but comes in around around $30,000-$35,000 depending on features. The car has the standard 2 doors, seats 5 passengers, and gets 21/32 mpg city/hwy. Great on gas and lots of room for luggage and shopping purchases on our road trips.
With a key-less entry and push start you can get going quickly and there’s lots of great safety features that I can’t believe I ever had to live without. The lane keeping assistance, forward collision warning, electronic stability control, Honda LaneWatch Right Side Camera, and back up camera are literally life-savers.
This model has an stellar entertainment system, great sounds, with SiriusXM, touch-screen features, and bluetooth syncing for your phone so you can go hands-free. Heated front bucket seats and a 2-position memory for when you’re not the only driver add to the super-comfy driving experience. Seats fold down in the back for extra cargo room and there’s an Integrated Navigation System w/Voice Activation and even a Voice Activated Dual Zone Front Automatic Air Conditioning and 2 Power Outlets.
The wheels on this model are 18-inch and the brakes are 4-Wheel Disc Brakes w/4-Wheel ABS, Front Vented Discs, Brake Assist and Hill Hold Control, for super fast stopping. The Accord’s ride is fluid and acceleration is relatively seamless.
This is a great car for a road trip and we were sorry we weren’t going further and certainly didn’t feel like returning this one!
