Hello,

I've been a long time Honda Accord owner. My last two cars have been Accords. They were both V6's. Now, Honda no longer makes V6 Accords. I was considering the Accord 2.0 Turbo sport. How does it perform? Is it on par with a V6? Have you had any issues with it? Thanks in advance. BTW, I was also consider the Camry V6. I think the two differ in price by $5K

Simple: go drive one or read the many articles online that pertain to that model/engine.

Well.. I have read the articles. I wanted the opinion of someone on the forum. Someone who actually owns one and drives a daily basis. And sorry to say.. but a ten minute test drive down the block isn't exactly the best gauge... any more then lying on a mattress in the store.

From all the reviews ive seen, the 2.0T is quicker than the v6 it replaced, since it has more torque down low and I think it is quicker than he Camry v6 as well.


I think the Camry V6 would hold up better long term.

I'll give you indirect insight:
Honda Accord curb weight 3,131 to 3,428 lbs
Lexus NX200t curb weight 3,940–4,200 lb

NX I own has 2.0 DI turbo engine.235 hp. It is VERY agile engine. especially in Sport mode. Though Honda has less hp, 192, it is also much lighter and you can get it in manual.

That engine works for the money. It's not as "leisure" as wife's 3.5 V6, it does hard but fast job of acceleration. No whining, no thinking, simply moves SUV as you wish it. I am pleasantly surprised with its agility. Though it sucks only 91 octane, does not like 87. But it's fun to drive.

Was at my mechanic shop getting an oil change.
On floor was a turbo. Broken. Being sent back for core charge.
Enough said.

That was another concern... I buy Honda for reliability but I hear turbo's are less reliable. The new Accords haven't been on the roads long enough.
