The 2010 Honda Accord Cpe is a mid-size coupe that seats five passengers and offers more interior space than a Civic. Power is provided by a 2.4L inline four-cylinder engine good for 177 hp. This can be paired with a five-speed manual or a five-speed automatic. A more powerful 271 hp 3.5L V6 is available and is offered with a choice between a six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic. Traction control, four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, and side-impact airbags are all part of the standard safety equipment. The Accord Cpe is rated at 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.Read more Read less
The availability of Bluetooth HandsFreeLink--for hands-free calling--has been expanded to more models for 2010. Now all Accords with leather get the system. Accord EX and EX-L models get new rear-seat ventilation ducts for better air flow to passengers in back, while EX models also get a new trunk lining.
Sporty driving feel; stylish coupe styling; plush interior appointments on EX trims
It's already been a couple of years since the Accord was completely redesigned, yet it's still a step ahead of most rivals in overall interior appointments. For those who want more of a performance feel, the Accord Sedan is one of few to offer a manual transmission with a V6 engine. All three of the engines are refined and powerful, while base LX and LX-P models look like a remarkable bargain for those who want a reasonably stylish sedan with low running costs. The Accord maintains an enviable reputation for longevity, reliability, and excellent resale value, which makes it hard to beat for those hoping to keep their car for many years. And for those interested in the coupe, it sacrifices a little bit of space and convenience but gets a rakish silhouette and most of the sedan's practicality.
