Honda Accord Coupe: The Last of it’s Kind

In the decades since the Honda Accord Coupe came out. Much has changed about the auto industry. Back then, two-door coupes were commonplace and in fact were among the best selling cars on the market thanks to nameplates like Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme and Ford Thunderbird. No mainstream car-line was complete without two-door, four-door and station wagon variants. Today, aside from performance models, there is but one midsize two-door coupe left, the Honda Accord.

In the years since the dominance of the Cutlass, the sport utility has supplanted the wagon and the four-door sedan has taken on the fastback profile that was once the domain of coupes. Drivers no longer wanted to deal with the hassle of getting in and out of the back seat without dedicated portals.

After sampling the Accord Coupe for even a day it is apparent that the Accord Coupe definitely has an ongoing place in the automotive landscape although it’s not for everyone.

Both the two and four-door Accords got a mid-cycle refresh last fall that brought new front and rear fascias with revised lighting and some interior updates. The current-generation Accord is arguably the best looking of the type for some time. The coupe offers a distinctly different profile from its four-door sibling. From the A-pillar back the two cars share no sheet metal and in addition to the two doors. The coupe also loses two-inches less of a wheelbase, three-inches of overall length and an inch of height.
