2016 Honda Accord Coupe vs 2016 Honda Civic Coupe
Since the mid-seventies, two vehicles have taken up the Honda name and stood triumphant atop the market as two of the best sedan options available; however, the sedan model isn’t the only one both vehicles offer. We decided we’d take a look at the two vehicles side by side, but rather looking at their more well-known models we’d look at their other main body type, by comparing the 2016 Honda Accord Coupe vs 2016 Honda Civic Coupe.
The Civic was introduced in 1972, and has just about always offered a coupe version of itself. The Accord, on the other hand, was introduced in 1976 but didn’t receive a coupe model until 1990. Now, the Civic has a host of options and both version of the Accord are fairly popular, so why not take a look at the differences between each coupe?
Differences Between the 2016 Honda Accord Coupe, Civic Coupe
The table above shows the differences in specifications between each vehicle, highlight the fact that each model has its own distinct advantage. For the Accord Coupe, it’s passenger volume. Being the bigger of the two models – one being midsize, the other being compact – it isn’t surprising that the Accord offers more space in the cabin, but those extra 6.2 cubic feet are definitely an important advantage. For the Civic Coupe on the other hand, it has the superior fuel efficiency, operation on a combined average of 1.1 l/100km less than its sibling. That’s going to save you quite a bit of money in fuel costs in the longer run.
Power gets a little hazy though. At first glance, one might think the Honda Accord Coupe is the clear victor, considering its engine delivers an extra 27 horsepower. But it also happens to weigh 496 lbs. more than the Honda Civic Coupe, which means it needs more horsepower to do the same things as its lighter counterpart. We don’t know if it’s enough to even them out, but the advantage that the Accord may have over the Civic definitely isn’t as wide as it appears.
