... and one reason it's not
The Honda isn’t a victor in all categories, however. For starters it’s expensive and starts at $30,350 for a V6 model compared to just $23,345 for a Camaro. One could argue the Accord gets better content for the price, but that doesn’t change the fact that you have to pony up over $30K to get a V6.
Other factors that weigh in the Camaro’s favor include the fact that its rear-wheel drive. The Honda might be a bit more tossable but without a limited slip differential good luck putting the power down on this front-driver in a corner.
One can’t overlook styling either. The Accord may be handsome but it’s not what you’d call cool.
A genuine hoot to drive the single biggest factor against the Accord Coupe is that it is… an Accord Coupe. A genuine fun-to-drive, front-drive rival to the V6-powered pony cars, were it restyled and rebadged it might get more takers. As it stands, the biggest knock against the Accord Coupe is that it’s the exact car you expect your mother to drive.
