First drive of 2013 Accord Coupe V6 6MT
and the sedan -
Snapped some pics of the Accord at the dealership yesterday.
They must have been delivered when the dealership was closed so they could not hide them.
27/36 mpg ratings from the 4cyl 2013 model. ... from 23/34 on the current 2012 model.
The new accord V6 has more hp and better mileage than my car.
My moms really liking the new v6 6mt coupe in the red, would be fun if i could convince her to buy one and ill take her 06 v6 6mt sedan. It looks like they didnt put VCM on the 6mt v6 though and she wants better economy without giving up power
The video did mention that the Earth Dream engine has V-tec with a controlled cylinder management.
TOV says the 6mt doesnt get vcm, which also explains the drop in economy. Not sure why honda would do it, its not that hard to set up VCM like r18 vtec and have it only engage under specific low load situations
Well that blows. It's pretty much the same with the last generation...
car and driver has now reviewed the 2013 honda accord manual transmission 4cyl
Wow it's pretty quick and torquie
Quicker from the line than the Si's from 0-60. Lol.
