While the Honda Accord doesn’t have quite as many options to choose from as the Civic, it does have three different models that all make excellent options in the midsize car market. For those drivers looking at smaller, 2-door options, then the Accord Coupe might be the right choice for you. Even though the coupe market might not be as deep as the sedan market, there are still several great options to choose from, so we thought we’d show you how our favorite midsize coupe stacks up to some of its competitors by comparing the 2017 Honda Accord Coupe vs 2017 MINI Cooper Clubman.
Advantages of the 2017 Honda Accord Coupe
The table up above depicts four different aspects that you might be interested in taking a closer look at when shopping for a midsize 2-door coupe, and we thought we’d run right down the table analyzing each row to give you a better idea of how these two compare to one another. Right out of the gate, the Accord Coupe manages to get a huge leg up on the MINI Cooper Clubman in terms of power. In sporty cars like these two, power is certainly an important specification to consider, and the Accord offers an extra 51 horsepower, which is a pretty massive difference.
When dealing with a horsepower advantage that steep, generally you’ll see the competitor fire right back with an advantage in fuel efficiency, but that’s not the case here. Instead, the Accord Coupe and Cooper Clubman both achieve 7.8 l/100km combined fuel efficiency. But where the MINI does have a leg up on the Accord Coupe is in terms of cargo capacity, as its hatchback cargo hold allows for a bit of extra storage space in the form of 1.7 cubic feet.
But when it comes to passenger space, the Accord Coupe has its own leg up by offering 2.3 extra inches of shoulder room in the back. That might not sound like much, but your passengers will thank you. If you’re interested in a 2017 Honda Accord Coupe of your own, be sure to schedule a test drive right here at Wheaton Honda.
