So we got a Honda Accord Coupe


So Diego, my PR guy, picked up this 2008 Honda Accord Coupe. Currently, the only American-built 2008 Coupes running around Dubai are these test cars, as the actual car goes on sale in March. He brought the car over to me, complaining about how painfully slow it is compared to the Altima V6.

I didn’t pay too much attention until I drove it, and instantly realised that this is the 2.4 four-cylinder model, and not the V6 that he thought it was. Without any “2.4” badges, the only way to tell the difference is the single exhaust tip in the rear. However, even with the power deficit, it was easy to see why this car was considered a better driver’s car than the Altima, even though the Altima beats it in value.

While the review comes later, I got a chance to drive both the 2.4 and the 3.5 at the Autodrome track at absolutely full throttle, back in January 28, but I wasn’t allowed to write about it until March 1. Well, March is here.

What do you think?
