2017 Honda Accord Sport Special Edition Review
The 2017 Honda Accord simply struck display rooms on June 20, 2016, and with it came a brand-new trim level called the Sport Special Edition. The brand-new trim sits on the lower side of the spectrum, taking up the area in between the entry-level Accord EX and the Accord LX, so it's not a trim you're going to have to pay a fortune to place yourself in either.
Accord continues to set the bar in its class with consumers making it the leading retail selling automobile in America for 3 years running. We're happy to provide an expanded lineup with the 2017 Accord Hybrid and the brand-new Sport Special Edition as we continue to advance Accord's position as a real standard in its class, providing an unequalled mix of design, effectiveness, fun-to-drive efficiency and connection in the midsize sedan sector."
And, with the Accord's 2.4-liter engine, it has good power combined with good fuel economy. Let's take a more detailed look at the brand-new Accord Sport SE and see exactly what all the buzz is about.
To begin off, let's look at the outside of the Accord Sport SE. The very first thing Honda did to make the design appealing was to include a body-colored rear spoiler and body-colored side sills, 2 functions formerly scheduled just for the range-topping Touring trim. To the back, there is one more addition and that's worth pointing out, and that's the chrome double exhaust outlets-- formerly just readily available on the EX-L V-6 and Exploring trim levels.
The Sport SE isn't really all that various on the within compared to the lower LX. The Sport SE does have a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a function restricted to the EX-L and Visiting trims, and it has Aluminum pedals, a function you cannot get on any other trim. The motorist's seat is electrical with 10-way modification, and like the trims above it, it has 60/40 split folding seats with a center armrest.
The Sport SE is powered by a 2.4-liter, DOHC four-cylinder that produces 189 horse power and 182 pound-feet of torque. Going with the CVT-equipped Sport SE will get you a little enhancement to the tune of 26 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway.
The Accord Sport SE gets all the very same passive security includes as the remainder of the Accord Lineup. Motorist help functions are just offered at a premium and are restricted to a lane-keep help system and adaptive cruise control. You'll require to step up to a greater trim level if you were hoping to get Honda Lanewatch or car high-beam headlights.
If you're believing about nabbing up one of these Sport SE designs, do not anticipate to pay too much over the LX. The Sport SE begins out at $25,265 with a six-speed handbook-- that's simply $260 more than the best-equipped LX design readily available.
