Those you may have read our recent post about the 2018 Honda Accord launching later this year with a selection of potent turbocharged motors may be wondering what motors the Accord Coupe would come with.
Sad news folks, the Accord Coupe has been quietly discontinued starting with the 2018 Accord lineup.
Although, this shouldn’t come as such as surprise seeing as it’s main rivals from Toyota and Nissan killed off their coupes with the Camry Coupe being dropped in the late 90’s only to be replaced with the Solara, which in turn was axed almost ten years ago and the Altima Coupe being dropped in 2013.
Even big American brands have slowly cut their ties with standard coupes in order to focus on sportier models including the Mustang, Camaro and Challenger.
Don’t take that the wrong way and start dreaming up a sports derived Accord Coupe successor, the new Civic Type R should fill that void albeit with an extra set of doors.
Those who would like to still get their hands on an Accord Coupe can still purchase a 2017 model starting from AED 103,500. Base models are equipped with a 2.4-litre four cylinder motor rated at 185 horsepower and 245 Nm of torque driving the front wheels via a CVT gearbox.
Additionally, a 3.5-litre V6 petrol motor is available. Rated at 276 hp and 339 Nm of torque powering the front wheels via a six-speed automatic gearbox.
As it appears, you’ll have to turn your attention to upscale brands such as Lexus, Mercedes and Infiniti for your coupe fix.
