The 2017 Honda Civic Dilemma: Si or Sport?

  The 2017 Honda Civic Dilemma: Si or Sport? Although the Si has long been considered the iconic 2017 Honda Civic performance choice, it finds itself now as the middle child, flanked below by the nearly-as-capable Sport ($2,600 less), and a bove by the fire-breathing, 305-hp Type R ($12,600 more).After driving the Si side-by-side with the 2017 Honda Civic Sport, we have come to a conclusion: Save the $2,600, and get the Sport.The Si has a shaded edge over the Sport when it comes to specs: It gets 25 more horsepower (205 vs. 180) and 15 more lb.-ft. of torque (192 vs 177).

The optional manual transmission, however, lacks the precision found in more sporting Hondas like the Civic Si and Type R. We were impressed 2018 Toyota Camry XSE V-6 vs. 2018 Honda Accord Touring 2 . 0 T Comparison. Motortrend - Scott Evans Words, Wes Allison PhotosOctober 16, 2017.

Here we are, 17 years after the millennium, creeping toward a driverless future discussed elsewhere in this issue. Robocars will ask very little of us, only that we sit there and wait. After a few years of this, our driving skills are likely to atrophy like leg muscles in a cast. We’ll all become as helpless as Miss Daisy, reliant on a robotic Hoke to drive us around.

Except maybe that’s not what’s going to happen because we just hopped into the cabin of a redesigned 2018 Accord and there’s a manual gearbox with a leather-wrapped knob between the seats. That shifter shouldn’t be there, not this far into the driverless century. It’s almost like finding out that Cadillac offered a hand-cranked starter in 1959. Of course that didn’t happen, but if the robots win and the computer-driven car dominates mobility, this family sedan with a manual will certainly confuse the fossil record.

132 Comments on “ 2018 Honda Accord Abandons the V6, Ditches the Coupe, Maintains the Manual ” NoGoYo. There is no perfect car but some cars are further from perfect than others. For example, I would like to check current Accord sport but is has 19″ wheels.

The 10th Generation Honda Accord Sport 2 . 0 T 6MT just might fit that bill for you. If you need a new car you could do a damn sight worse than a 2018 Honda Accord . Just buy the manual , eh? Oh, and contact me when your lease is up.

The tach side of the gauges is reconfigurable; John Cuellar is sure to be upset about the directional wheels.

The rest of the interior holds few surprises. Climate controls are simple, just three knobs with a few logically marked buttons. A convincing digital facsimile of an analog tachometer is set to the left of an actual analog speedometer. It’s possible to change the tachometer display to show trip-computer, audio, and other information, but, this particular car being a manual, we left the tachometer displayed. We do wish that Honda gave drivers the option of putting a digital speedometer in the vast darkness between the two gauges.

Maybe it’s because we’ve been visually assaulted by other new Hondas, such as the Civic and fuel cell-powered Clarity, but we find the new Accord attractive. In front, a broad black grille is topped by a large chrome band that makes it look as if the Accord is wearing a wrestling-championship belt (an acknowledgment of all its past 10Best wins?). Honda’s Intercontinental tag-team belt is flanked by LED headlights that look as if they could’ve come from an Acura and shine brightly at night.

The new Diamond Pentagon grille carries over from models like the TLX and MDX, with what appears to be updated LED headlight fixtures, refreshed taillights, and a more tapered rear design. Overall, the shape looks to be larger and boxier than the outgoing model, with hints of the platform-sharing Honda CR-V in tow.

Next up is the 2018 Honda Accord Sport 2 . 0 T with the manual transmission. It is based on the excellent platform that underpins the Honda Civic and shares a version of the Type R’s engine that is tuned for regular fuel and economy over power.

The Accord’s outward appearance may conform to class norms, but Honda isn’t a follower. Offering a manual transmission in the Accord is a protest of sorts, a secret handshake from Honda that lets us know that you shouldn’t have to give up driving just because you’re buying a family sedan. Life may get lost in a repetitive blur of cubicles, choosing paint colors at Home Depot, eating meatballs at Ikea, and picking up the kids from karate. But a manual Accord—a really fun and powerful Accord at that—serves as a reminder of the joy and freedom we used to have as drivers back in the 20th century. Call it an anachronism or an anomaly, but the stick shift belongs to us, those who love driving. We will not give up and let our left legs and right arms wither away. The manual transmission’s therapy is as much mental as it is physical.
