      Finally saw an Accord Sport last night.
      At first when I saw it in my rear view mirror, I couldn't tell what it was because it's LED headlight surround is different from other cars, I thought it was an IS.


      Then when it passed me, I caught a glimpse of the rear and immediately though Hyundai Genesis.

      But, then I caught the "Sport" and Honda badge.
      Definitely a handsome car. I'm definitely intrigued.

      I'd go so far as to say that's damn fast for a family sedan. For comparison, that's about the same as the Hyundai Genesis 4.6. I really wish Honda would give it an AWD option...give the Legacy and Fusion some competition.

      How is it that fast? It is faster then the current GTI.

      It's got around 275hp and doesn't weigh much more than a GTI.

      It still amazes me that the 6AT is that quick.

      101MPH trap speed in an Automatic mid size family sedan...that's pretty peppy..just like Andrew said.

      Trunk space is very good, but I guess people like to nitpick and find faults such as no 60/40 rear splitting seats.

      Could use a Homelink though. Unless it can sourced from the Euro models.

      Is it 50/50 or just one big blob of reclining seat?

      I didn't even look the two times I went to the dealer for this car.

      One "big blob".

      If you want 60/40, get a wagon like I always say.

      Is the 60/40 folding seat that hard to implement? Also, the opening from the trunk into the passenger compartment could be better (this is what Subaru got right in the Legacy). I guess Honda figures that an Accord won't be used to haul much, so why bother changing such things.

      TSX had 60/40, the 12 Accord does not. Not sure why they don't implement. 60/40 is a huge plus for me. Countlestimesi gave needed more space for long objects while also having a 3rd passenger sitting in the back
