TheCarConnection.com's experts noted a great deal of positive comments concerning the fit and quality of the 2008 Honda Accord's interior—and found much to praise in firsthand driving experience, too.
ConsumerGuide says that "seats have grown for 2008 and are more comfortable as a result...sedans have good headroom, vast legroom, and comfortable seats...[while] larger door openings and a higher roof contribute to easy entry and exit." Mother Proof, on the other hand, says that the "seats are a bit hard." Nonetheless, Edmunds reports "an ample supply of front and rear passenger room" inside the 2008 Honda Accord Sedan. Kelley Blue Book says that there is "an interior volume increase big enough to move the Accord into the EPA's Large Sedan category, [providing] room for wider seats and a big, two-arm center console."
The 2008 Honda Accord Sedan is not stingy on cargo space either, at least for its class. Mother Proof reports that "the rear seats do fold down, through a lever found in the trunk," providing "14 cubic feet of trunk space, which is at least a cube less than its major competitors," as stated by Edmunds. ConsumerGuide describes this 2008 Honda trunk as "large, deep [and] usefully shaped," while noting that "a smallish opening may prevent loading of bulkier items" and "intrusive hinges force cautious loading of crushable items." Kelley Blue Book assures buyers that "there are plenty of bins and cubbies throughout and the backseat and trunk qualify as roomy in every dimension."
Materials are definitely upscale, according to Mother Proof, which says that the 2008 Honda Accord Sedan's available "leather interior has a sophisticated, tailored look and feel." Cars.com is of similar opinion, stating the "new [2008 Honda] Accord's cabin treads ever-closer to the domain of Honda's luxury brand, Acura, with its use of high-quality materials, good fit and finish."
While this 2008 Honda is "quieter thanks to additional sound-deadening materials and body-stiffening measures" according to Edmunds, ConsumerGuide reports that "road noise is fairly pronounced, with less sound isolation from traffic din than might be expected."
The 2008 Honda Accord provides high levels of comfort, and quality materials and assembly abound inside.
