Hideous exterior design - not sure who has an uglier front, this or the new Camry.
Way too overstyled.

Interior looks great though and manual trans for 2.0 turbo is great for enthusiasts.

Front needs to slope back more. The new Civic has the same issue. Looks like a nice design but horrible execution.

What's with the square looking thing lower part of the grille? Also the grille looks empty, incomplete. Inoffensive styling I guess so good enough?

Radar for cruise control/ auto emergency braking, etc.

I like it. I mean, not enough to buy it but I have no doubt that the new accord will sell well within the pedestrian marketplace.

Oh no, you are right. <insert hand slapping head emoji here>

I'm not in the market but I want an affordable stick to be out there, and like you say, 2.0 with stick. But the looks, wth......

It's rather sad that there are no affordable sticks, well, the GTI but it runs away with the price, and the Mazda 3, but that's got no motor and looks like they cheesed out the HIDs it used to have.....

I thought the Camry looked ok, maybe a little too aggresive, but still ok, but no motor/tranny choices...

C&D, do you go back to 10 best, or will things continue as 9 best....

not keen on the front top wraparound trim but other than that it looks ok, a lot like a sonata?

The floating tablet design seems intent on becoming part of mainstream interior cabins

I'd still buy one if it's $20k or less. Maybe.

No wonder it was always covered up in the spy pics. I get that beauty is only skin deep, but it's an expression, Honda didn't need to take it literally.

Oh no.. I just notice that it is electronic push buttons as gear selectors... assuming for auto trannies.

I like how honda sense is standard on all trims, not sure about the exterior styling..interior is tolerable, but the tablet-like display is meh.

The new 2.0T is def gonna be a best seller.
