Previously, we here at Germain Honda of Dublin have compared popular crossovers and minivans in an attempt to showcase why Honda is the clear winner when it comes to value, comfort, and safety. So what vehicle segment will we focus on next? That would be sporty coupes.
There are quite a few options available, but it seems that two tend to top the charts. Those would be the 2012 Honda Accord Coupe EX Manual Transmission and the Genesis 2.0T R-Spec Manual. Both vehicles offer a five-star NHTSA safety rating and comparable performance. So where does the Accord Coupe best the Genesis Coupe?
Well, there's fuel economy. While the Accord Coupe EX sports a 23 mpg city/32 mpg highway rating, the Genesis 2.0T R-Spec features 21 mpg city/30 mpg highway. Safety features? The Accord Coupe EX boasts three distinguishing safety features that its rival does not. Those would be ACE body construction, active head restraints for rear-seat passengers, and optional rear electronic parking aid.
Safety and fuel economy are good. But what about convenience? The Accord Coupe EX features cruise control, a telescoping steering column, front adjustable seat height, overhead console storage, seatback storage, heated exterior mirrors, and auto headlights. Good luck finding any of those in the Genesis 2.0T R-Spec Manual.
In case you couldn't tell, we could go on all day. But in the end, we know that most drivers would simply prefer to test drive the Accord Coupe EX and see for themselves. And that's exaclty what we invite you to do here at 6715 Sawmill Road Dublin, OH 43017.
