The Honda Accord is one of the top-rated cars in the family sedan class. The 2016 Accord continues its reign on top boasting a spacious and high-quality interior, refined and efficient powertrains, quick acceleration and an excellent balance between ride and handling. With the Accord’s never-ending list of great qualities, it’s an easy decision. But, here’s where the decision-making becomes hard. The 2016 Accord is available in sedan and coupe. Which one do you choose?
Sedans tend to get a better rep than coupe’s solely because sedans are what most people know, and people like to stick with what they know because it’s familiar. That’s easy to understand. But, before you opt for the good ole’ standby, first do some research and learn about the many great qualities a coupe, like the 2016 Accord, provides.
Style. While sedans aren’t the best at catching admiring gazes as they drive by, the opposite can be said for coupes. Coupes are interesting. They offer a clean, sleek design that’s both dramatic and sporty - all qualities that make it quite an alluring set of wheels. Coupes also don’t exude the typical ôfamily transport system that many wish to avoid.
Extra perks. If you opt for a coupe, you almost automatically ensure that you get more perks. Since coupes tend to be sportier in styling, they usually house sportier engines with more power and acceleration. Coupes also often feature more tech items. This is proven in the 2016 Accord coupe that shows off an EX trim level with a seven-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto functionality. Extra perks like these make coupes a much more appealing experience behind the wheel.
Increased safety. Safety is another win for coupes because they often receive higher crash test scores; and in keeping with the fact that they usually get more features, this means there is more safety-designed technology for increased safety. The Accord coupe, for example, is equipped with all of the necessary safety gear like antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, active front head restraints, and front and side airbags; also standard is a rearview camera. Safety features make up a long list with everything from lane-departure and road-departure warning and intervention to forward-collision warning and intervention with automatic braking. Those models that include Honda’s LaneWatch blind-spot system also gain a 7.7-inch screen that displays a low, wide view of the passenger-side blind spot.
When the Accord sedan and coupe battled head to head in crash testing, guess who won? All signs point to the coupe! While the sedan received four out of five stars in areas like frontal impact safety, the coupe swept the board with a perfect score in all categories.
