   This newest Accord is the most different Accord ever. It's the first Accord V6 to be offered with a manual transmission in the US, and not just a manual, it's a six speed. But that's not the only new thing, it's engine has been also upgraded with 40 more horses and 17 more pound-feet of torque. All that power mated to the manual transmission rockets this Accord to 60 mph in just 6.1 seconds, a bit faster than the Altima V6. Although the six speed is only avilable in the top-of-the-line EX Coupe, the sedan is still quite fast with the new 5 speed automatic. This new Accord also has the handling to match it's extra power, with 17 inch wheels shodded with 215/50R-17 tires. All these latest Honda products (3.2CL Type-S, Integra Type-R, Civic Type-R) are taking my hopes up for a much improved NSX in the near future (say 400 hp or more), so let's hope Honda is listening. Although the styling might take a little to get used to, it's still handsome to me. The rear tailights on the sedan are the biggest change in styling for a Honda, but I still like it, it looks very elegant. The coupe has a taillight treatment kind of like the new Mercedes CL. Whatever you think of the styling, the Accord doesn't stop from being one hell of a car.
