There are 16 user reviews for the Sport CVT trim shown below
- Great Fuel economy, roomy, plenty of tech, smoothest CVT out there
- CVT can be loud at times, Trim levels need more option selections
Purchased As New
After trading a 2006 BMW 325 due to rediculous maintenance costs and inferior craftsmanship I went back to the Accord. It is my 4th Accord I have owned and by far and away the nicest. Honda has really stepped up to the plate with the 9th generation and has created a beautiful car that doesn't look like a space ship but borrows designs from other premium car makers that have stood the test of time. In the month I've owned the car I have had 10 compliments on the beauty of the car and I agree with their assessment. Some reviews say its not a head turner but in my experience that is the furtherest thing from the truth. The biggest negative to me is the car's trim levels are pretty set in stone and getting a Sunroof or leather seats in the Sport isn't really an option. Not to mention your choices in interior colors, appearance and other things is limited. The good news is the choices you do have are good combinations but this is an area I would like to see improved in the future. I have a feeling Honda will sell a ton of these and see the opportunity to refine their selections.
The 189 horse power and 182 lbs of torque gives you enough power to handle highway driving and this generation of Honda is the most quiet ever built. The 18 inch tires really give you full control of the vehicle and for a larger car it handles wonderfully. It is a bit stiffer than the past versions but still a quiet and good riding car where you feel connected to the road. I knew it would be hard to give up the incredible driving of a BMW but the transition to the Accord has been a lot easier than I thought it would be. The CVT rubber banding effect is very minimal and the car gets up and goes when it needs to. Honda really gives you all the tools to help make sure you drive the car to maximize fuel efficiency and the econ button is great for long trips. Using the 8 inch display to help make sure I'm not foolishly wasting gas is a great addition to this brand and I have used it to perfection.
Overall, if you are looking for a car under the mid 20's then out of all the 2013's I tested this car is the one for your money. I got a black on black 2013 Accord Sport and I am proud to once again be a Honda owner. I know that the money I spent in the past year on my BMW won't be spent on the life of owning this car and that is the most appealing part of my purchase. Do yourself a favor and give one of the new Accords a test drive.
