Discuss this story in the forum at CarTalkCanada. The current Honda Accord is coming to the end accor its five-year life cycle and will be completely redesigned for the model year — a glimpse of the eighth generation Accord styling was provided at the Detroit auto show in Acccord with the unveiling of the Accord Coupe concept see www. In the meantime, Honda has been making some improvements to the existing model: For driving enthusiasts, perhaps the most important upgrade for is the availability of a six-speed manual transmission in EX-V6 four-door sedan — this transmission was previously available only in the two-door EX V6 coupe.
Test Drive: Honda Accord EX-V6 Sedan W/six-speed Manual –
A five-speed manual is still offered in four-cylinder Accord sedans, but this is the first time a six-speed manual has been offered in the V6 sedan. Still, for drivers who want the practicality of four doors and the fun of six speeds, the extra money may be worth it.
Standard equipment As the top-of-the-line model, the EX-V6 sedan is well-equipped. Interestingly, an optional navigation system is available on the EX-V6 with the automatic transmission, but not on the EX-V6 with the manual tranny. Interior impressions While well finished, I found the charcoal interior of my test car to be rather somber in appearance.
The centre display includes the time, radio station and band, driver and passenger temperature settings, fan speed, and ventilation settings. For example, the radio volume dial is in between the two temperature dials.
One glaring fault with the car is the unavailability of split rear folding seatbacks. The whole rear seatback acclrd down in one piece which makes it impossible to carry cargo on one side and a passenger on the other.
Another small matter is the lack of a centre rear head restraint which will probably be corrected in the next generation model. With accors new six-speed manual, shift points are now at the discretion of the driver — shifts can be held longer for quicker acceleration, or downshifted earlier when setting up for a corner.
The Hondaa V6 sedan is definitely more fun to drive with the manual transmission, particularly because it has such a willing, free-revving V6 engine and slick shifting action.
The six-speed shifter has short shift gates, and moves between gears with a buttery smoothness. Energuide fuel economy ratings with the six-speed manual transmission are slightly better than with the automatic transmission — In its axcord, winter traction is superior to rear-drive vehicles and the Accord EX V6 also features standard Vehicle Stability Control VSA to help prevent loss of steering control on slippery surfaces, and Traction Control to help mitigate wheelspin under acceleration.
Drivers have the option of turning off the VSA.
I found the variable assist steering to be light enough for parallel parking and firm enough at high speeds for a sportier driving feel. The Accord tracks well at high speeds and brakes quickly with a firm pedal feel and short stopping distances.

The body is very tight and there are no disturbing suspension noises or body creaks. Though not in the same league as entry-level luxury sedans like the Infiniti G35 and BMW i, the Accord EX V6 offers nevertheless offers comparable luxury, refinement and acceleration for much 22007 money.
And in its last year before a changeover, Honda dealers may be willing to provide additional discounts and incentives. Verdict Though in the final year of a five-year model run, the Accord sedan, now available with a manual six-speed transmission in V6 models, is still a comfortable, refined and well-appointed mid-sized sedan. The six-speed manual adds some fun to the mix. Criticisms include the lack of a split folding rear seatback and a confusing dash layout.
