The beauty of the 2008 Honda Accord Coupe first struck us when we saw a picture of the car on an advertisement in an airport last year. Since then, we've seen a few Accord Coupes driving around, and we've been as impressed with the real thing as the photograph. During our review week with the Accord Coupe, we found it to be as exciting as the Accord Sedan is dull. Of course, we had the top trimmed EX-L Accord Coupe with its V-6 engine and six-speed manual transmission, much more fun than the five-speed automatic in the sedan.
Beyond its good looks, our Accord Coupe also had the navigation package, and a set of cabin gadgets we've been impressed with in plenty of other Hondas. Like the Accord Sedan, it adds Bluetooth cell phone integration. Although the navigation system and other cabin gadgets aren't as cutting edge as they could be, they still work very well for running errands or exploring unfamiliar areas.
