Add in its comfortable and spacious interior, attractive design, upscale feel and strong resale value, and the new Accord is again a force to be reckoned with. Changes for the model year are few and consist of a couple of fairly minor upgrades for the top-of-the-line EX models, including rear seat ventilation ducts for EX and EX-L sedans, Bluetooth connectivity for all EX-Ls and a trunk lid liner for all EX models. The base LX-S coupe model comes with the same features as the LX-P, except for the passenger-side auto-up window and power driver seat, but it adds an in-dash 6-disc CD changer. The EX model then upgrades with 17 inch wheels and a sunroof for both the coupe and sedan. In addition, the EX sedan gets the 6-disc in-dash CD changer while the EX coupe comes with a premium sound system with a subwoofer. The top-of-the-line EX-L model adds heated front seats, leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth, satellite radio, dual-zone automatic climate control and automatic headlights.
