Simply excellent fuel economy for a car this size
Popular Mechanics

The reviews read by TheCarConnection.com all praised the 2008 Honda Accord Coupe for its long list of standard and optional features.

Automobile.com notes that with the 2008 Accord Coupe, Honda is squarely aiming at young buyers with its impressive "mix of high-tech features," bigger wheels, and optional subwoofer. According to Cars.com, cloth seats are standard, but the EX-L model adds leather seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel with tilt and telescoping functions and audio buttons. Other standard features include air conditioning, cruise control, lighted vanity mirrors, and CD stereo with a MP3 jack. The list of options includes Bluetooth hands-free cell phone connectivity, XM Satellite Radio, and a premium audio system with a subwoofer that will meet the demands of most audiophiles.

Also on the option list is a new navigation system that is among the few options that met with less than favorable reviews. Edmunds questions whether replacing the well-loved and easy-to-operate touch-screen nav system in favor of an "iDrive-like control knob" is considered progress. They also note that the cluster of more than 30 buttons that surround the control knob "is intimidating." ConsumerGuideAuto.com agrees and points out that the deeply recessed screen obscures the sight lines, and "the display can be washed out in certain light conditions"

Conclusion

The 2008 Honda Accord Coupe is well appointed in base trim, and it has enough optional electronic gadgets to impress even the most dyed-in-the-wool techies, though some may find the navigation fiddly.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
