2017 Honda Accord Coupe vs 2017 BMW 4 Series Coupe
While people might not often be trying to decide between a luxury vehicle and a regular, non-luxury model, sometimes it’s nice to see how our vehicles fare against their more premium counterparts. That’s why we thought, with such a small market of 2-door coupe models anyway, we’d see how pitting the 2017 Honda Accord Coupe vs 2017 BMW 4 Series Coupe turns out. As we mentioned, both vehicles are 2-door coupes, but is that all they have in common?
Advantages of the 2017 Honda Accord Coupe
The table above depicts some of the most important specifications in vehicles like these. While both vehicles are packed with great features from convenience to safety, we know that the luxury BMW 4 Series can offer premium features that the Honda just doesn’t have. So these specs are where the Accord has to make up ground.
Right off the bat, the Accord Coupe starts off from behind – though not by much. Sporty luxury cars almost always blow regular cars’ horsepower out of the water, but fuel efficiency is more up in the air. In this case, the Honda Accord Coupe cuts things very close, only offering 0.3 l/100km less fuel efficiency on the highway. And the Accord fires back by offering a slightly bigger trunk, in the way of 0.7 cubic feet of space.
Then we come to power, where – as we forewarned – the BMW 4 Series Coupe offers quite a bit more, 63 extra horsepower to be exact. But that advantage is diminished quite a bit when you look at the last row, which shows the Accord Coupe weighs 379 lbs. less than the BMW. Less weight means it needs less power, so while the BMW still certainly has an advantage, it’s not as big as it seems here.
