      The Accord 2013 EX-L CVT is an extraordinary lease deal here.

      With 48mo / 96000km, it is 364$ + txs. 418.50$/mo just retail no money down.

      To understand how great it is, my 1999 EX-L auto (November 1998) was also 419$/mo 14 years ago, after a reduction of 1850$ on MSRP (27500$ paid 29350$ retail) and 1100$ down!!!!!

      Resale value will probably be excellent.

      This is beyond disappointing to me. How can Honda screw Americans this badly? I will be seriously considering an Accord in a few years once my lease is up on my Chevy Volt - I'm really longing for something with a manual transmission. It aggravates me to no end that manual enthusiasts are always getting screwed by Honda when it comes to features and content.

      If Canukzistan can get it, there should be no reason we can't get a 6-speed manual touring sedan in America.

      Despite in NA, Canada is like Europe in some ways.

      We also get a special 4 cylinder Touring sedan, available with manual transmission and in any colors!! It's fully loaded with SATNAV, LEDs front + back, and front + rear heated seats..
      Do want!!!
      Too bad the dealership experience stinks.

      I got treated like dirt at 3 of the Honda dealerships in the Lower Mainland.

      Looked at the new Accord yesterday. Only the Touring trim with the LED headlights interested me.

      I'm glad you can pick one up with the 4-cyl instead of being offered only for the 6-cyl.

      Car's just beautiful.

      Because they'll sell 8 of them in America and it's not worth the trouble.

      You're asking for a sporty feature in the most amazingly vanilla segment of the market.

      Are you pissed that McDonald's doesn't offer a Kobe beef burger with truffle fries and bottles of Bollinger?

      I guess they expect to sell about 8 LX, Sport and EX models too, since they too are available with the manual transmission. This segment may be "vanilla" but there are still a few of us who prefer to row our own gears (I happen to be one of them.) My current car is an Accord EX-L 5spd manual sedan...its been a really good car but its showing its age and it lacks so much of the technological features I'd want in a car now. I want something new, something midsize and something available with a stick shift and some upscale features. I'm left with the Accord EX (which doesn't have XM) or the Ford Fusion SE, which has everything I'd want except push button start. I'd PREFER an Accord Sport, but its placed below the EX in the Accord lineup and its content is too low for my taste. So it will be either Fusion or Focus Titanium for me.

      The Accord began its decline of manual transmission on most models after the first year or two of the previous generation, right around MY2010. It's no wonder that generation didn't sell well with a stick shift, it was too big, too bulky and not as nimple as the 7th generation was. This new one is about the size of my Accord and its more upscale looking, and in Sport trim, downright sporty looking.


      Even IF only about 8 people wanted to buy a manual transmission Accord Touring, considering Honda is offering the car for the Canadian market, and considering the fact that the Canadian Accord is built on the same assembly line as US Accords in the great state of Ohio, Honda could at least allow those of us who'd want an Accord Touring I4 6spd to order the car if we'd want it. You don't have to place them on the lots, but we should be able to at least order the car if we'd want to. That way you won't have a bunch of manual transmission cars sitting on lots for those who don't want them, but you'd be able to cater to the small, but loyal demand of those who do like to row our own gears. Seems pretty simple to me .

      That's exactly what I hear Ford will be doing with the new Fusion.

      My only concern with the Sport trim is the 4 speaker audio system. I mean, I guess it's not a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but I would have to bring some good music on the test drive to see if I could live with it.

      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.

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

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

      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.
