    Snooze machine,
    where’s the 10 speed gearbox and the 2.0T?

  2. Nice looking sedan!

  3. Almost everyone has said the seats are supremely comfortable. Maybe this particular vehicle was snubbed out of some padding.

  4. No CVT for me.

  5. Missed the mark, but that’s Honda for you!

    Does anyone even buy cars anymore? I think there’s a reason Ford no longer makes them.

  8. Hear me out:
    Honda PURPOSEFULLY made this car boring because of supply shortages. If they made it more appealing there would be no way to fulfill demand.
    The Hyundai Sonata blows this out of the water

    • Agree it has all the styling of a sack of flour. But…If they had made it pretty, they could ask even more money for it. Honda would get a little more $ and the stealerships would get tons of $$$ due to the insatiable demand.

  9. This is first time I heard someone complain about front seats,every video I watch they said seat are pretty good and comfortable usually they complain about look of the car and missing 2.0 T,few days ago I test drive accord sport hybrid with cloth seats, and I like the seat,they are comfortable

  10. I found the Accord seats to be very comfortable, especially the cloth ones.

    Lost me at uncomfortable front seats. Drop me a line when we get the Honda E.

  12. I feel your driver’s seat pain because we just (2 weeks ago) sat inside a 2023 Accord Sport Hybrid and HATED IT! Currently, my partner has a 2020 Accord Touring (goodbye 2.0 Turbo) and when his 6’3″ frame sat in the seat, his knees were so bent, he was in pain (literally). Turns out, to make room for the hybrid’s batteries under the rear floorboard, the driver’s seat track was shortened a few inches, making the legroom unbearable! Meanwhile, we have a 2023 Camry XLE AWD on Factory Order and boy, that car was amazing to sit in and drive — even without the hybrid engine — which is a 6-month back-order, which we cannot wait for as our current lease will be done in May.

  13. Bought a 2023 Sport Hybrid a week ago. Really enjoying it so far. Great fuel economy and tech. Not as quick as the other vehicles on my list, BUT it is almost as smooth as an EV so far which is really nice

  14. So ugly on the outside.
    Pricing has gotten insane.
    A few old folks might like it.

    It’s an SUV world folks.

    6.5/10. 😞

    The moment I hear 4cyl turbo and cvt that’s the end of my interest.

  16. It looks like a Taurus Police Interceptor.

  17. $2000 over sticker down here in Orlando Fl market now.Couple of months when they come down to reality I may consider a Sport Hybrid.
