2009 Honda Accord Coupe vs. Its Competition

2009 Honda Accord

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

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 2009 model year.

Both cars are coupes derived from front-drive, Japanese-brand sedans.

Quick Specs
9.2
Though it might not be the most exciting coupe, strong V-6 performance, good fuel economy, and a great interior make the 2009 Honda Accord Coupe one of TheCarConnection.com's top-rated vehicles for 2009.
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.
