Honda Quietly Kills The Accord Coupe

If you’re in the market for a mainstream mid-size coupe your options just got a lot more limited as Honda has reportedly confirmed plans to drop the Accord Coupe.

According to Roadshow, the introduction of the 2018 Accord will spell the end of the road for its coupe counterpart.

The news is hardly surprising as coupe sales were believed to only make up a tiny fraction of overall sales. The Accord Coupe’s competitors have also been dropped as Nissan axed the Altima Coupe in 2013 and the Toyota Solara died an uneventful death nearly a decade ago.

Even the domestics have abandoned the once popular segment to focus on sportier models such as the Camaro, Challenger, and Mustang.

While it’s sad to see the Accord Coupe die, fans can still pick up the 2017 model which starts at $24,125. Two different engine options are available and choices include a 2.4-liter four-cylinder with 185 hp (137 kW) and 181 lb-ft (245 Nm) of torque as well as a 3.5-liter V6 cranking out 278 hp (207 kW) and 252 lb-ft (341 Nm) of torque.

    Sad but bound to happen, don’t blame them at all.

      A new Prelude would fix everything, including provide a Mustang-Camaro-Challenger-Z-Supra competitor. The new Prelude should have at least 300HP to be relevant. My Thoughts.

    Re 2018 model:
    Turbos, direct injection and CVT trannys are too complex, unreliable and expensive to repair for the average consumer. They want simple, reliable and good looking cars. BIG mistake.

  • Nordschleife

    One of the last if not the last fairly inexpensive personal coupes on the market. Rest in peace you sadly unloved segment.

    WTF Honda!

    That’s sad. I’ve owned 2 Accord coupes in my life. A 1989 Accord LXi in ‘Seattle Silver’ and 1992 Accord EXr in ‘Polar White’. Both with a manual transmission. The 1992 Accord was stolen and stripped. It cost the insurance company [this is in 1993] a little over $12,000 to put right. And that was mostly in parts. Yikes! It never drove the same after that so I ended up trading it in on something.

      2001 model with the 2.0 liter engine. Good car that never let me down.
      Some of us will be real sorry when all that’s left are “4/5 door coupes”.
      Yeh, right. 2 door only.

    I didn’t know they still made the coupe…

  • Dennis Scipio

    Sad, it was in a class of it’s own.

  • vantageman1

    it was the only car in its class not hard to imagine they would get rid of it sooner or later

  • Six_Tymes

    Its been WAY Over priced for a very long time now. I’m not surprised at all that its getting the axe.

  • SAD NO ONE WANTS TO MAKE A PERSONAL COUPE NAY MORE.

  • Mark S

    Do a sporty 5-door coupe off the next generation Accord and call it a Prelude. Add ooptional AWD.

    • Eythan Aldrich

      that’ll do…..but two door prelude is to begin with since it all started as a two door

  • Justin Spencer

    That really sucks!!! I was really looking forward to seeing what the Coupe version of the new generation Accord would look like. Ugh, I have a feeling the Civic Coupe isn’t long for this world either.

    Won’t be missed.

  • Blade t

    That’s too bad ….

  • nastinupe

    It cost way too much for what it was. Honda needs to make a new Integra with RWD or AWD instead to go against the Q60.

    It seems not a masterpiece….
