2008 Honda Accord Coupe vs. Its Competition

2008 Honda Accord Coupe 2-door I4 Auto EX-L Angular Rear Exterior View
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

The Honda Accord Coupe's most direct competitors are two other coupes derived from front-drive, Japanese-brand sedans.

The Toyota Camry Solara is based on the four-door Camry, and has much softer handling than the Accord Coupe.

It's due to be replaced after the 2008 model year.

The Nissan Altima Coupe is a new entry in the market, and sports four- and six-cylinder engines and a profile that reminds TheCarConnection.com's editors of the late Chevrolet Monte Carlo.

Quick Specs
9.2
The 2008 Honda Accord Coupe blends great looks with strong V-6 performance and good fuel economy, making it one of TheCarConnection.com’s top-rated vehicles.
8.4
The 2008 Nissan Altima is a little sportier, though not less sensible.
7.8
The 2008 Toyota Camry Solara has a creamy ride and a luxurious interior, but even a convertible top can't sharpen its dull handling and nondescript styling.
