Coupes are a small but important segment in the automotive business. They don’t sell in huge volume but some of the most entertaining cars on the road today have just two doors.
And two prime examples of these machines are the Chevrolet Camaro and Honda Accord. Both offer powerful engines, refined interiors and entertaining driving dynamics. But which one would you rather own? Please, vote in our latest poll so we can settle this issue once and for all!
Starting with the Camaro, which was totally redesigned for the 2016 model year, Chevrolet’s reborn muscle machine gains new style, a fresh interior and a brand new architecture. This car is significantly lighter than its predecessor and it drives even better.
Excluding special-edition models, power is provided by one of three different engines. The base unit is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, the middle rung of this performance ladder is a 3.6-liter V6, but the top offering is a 6.2-liter V8 with 455 horsepower and as much torque. Two transmissions are offered, either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic.
Moving on, the Honda also offers customers several engine choices. The base propulsion system is centered around a 2.4-liter four-cylinder that’s good for 185 horses, but the engine you’d probably be happier with is the optional 3.5-liter V6. This smooth and responsive unit puts out 278 ponies.
Likewise, with the two-door Accord a pair of transmissions are offered. A six-speed manual can be had with either engine but if you want an automatic things diverge. The four-cylinder engine offers a CVT while the V6 comes with a six-speed self-shifter.
Either way, both the Camaro and Accord are sophisticated, stylish and fun, but which one do YOU prefer? Well, vote in our latest poll and let’s see which of these cars comes out on top!
