There’s no need to choose between luxury and style, or performance and handling: the new 2017 Honda Accord Sport Special Edition has it all. Once again, thanks to Herb Chambers Honda of Seekonk for letting me, Honda Laura, test out this 9th Edition of the Accord in my latest video review. The SE “Special Edition” trim line of the Accord, which is new for 2017, packs even more styling punch into a classic, high performance, luxury car.
Let’s take a look at it!
The Special Edition Accord includes all of the following features and options:
San Marino red paint (only became available for sedans in 2016)
Extra chrome accents throughout
Automatic halogen projector beam headlights
LED daytime running lights, fog lights, taillights, and brake light bars
19” Alloy wheels with glossy black inserts
Deck roof spoiler
First and foremost… black leather interior (wow!)
Carbon fiber trim, glossy black and chrome accents, red stitching and halo lighting
Aluminum pedals (so sporty)
Dual climate control
Spacious backseat with 60/40-folding seat (and more legroom than the previous edition)
Large trunk (15.8 cubic feet)
Under the Hood:
2.4L 4-cylinder i-VTEC Earthdreams direct fuel injection engine with 189 HP
CVT transmission with sport mode and paddle shifters
26 city/34 highway/29 combined MPG
With a sticker of only $26,215, that’s a lot of bang for the buck. I’m loving all the extra touches Honda added with the SE trim line this year. We’re talking leather seats (with heat!), carbon fiber, chrome, paddle shifters and 19” wheels. All the high end styling touches you expect on cars retailing for way more than this. Add to that the performance, handling, comfort and reliability that we love about the Accord Sport, and it’s a match made in heaven. The all new 2017 Honda Accord Sport Special Edition is both flashy and sassy!
