The 2017 Honda Accord Sport Special Edition Has Finally Arrived
The Honda Accord enjoyed a comprehensive refresh for 2016, so Malin and Keno drivers didn’t expect anything new for 2017; the addition of the Sport Special Edition came as a bit of a shock. Slipping into the Accord lineup between the Sport and EX, this new trim combines the exhilarating performance of the Sport model with the comfort and convenience features you’d normally expect from a top-tier trim.
Performance and Efficiency
As you might have expected of any 2017 Honda Accord bearing the Sport moniker, the Sport Special Edition ups the ante over standard models when it comes to horsepower, torque, and overall get-up-and-go.
It uses the same 2.4L four-cylinder engine as other Accord models, but the team at Honda equipped it with a dual-exhaust system. That means that your engine will be able to clear spent gases faster, maintaining a stronger flow of oxygen for optimum performance. As far as raw figures go, you’ll enjoy a boost in output up to 189 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque — strong numbers for a midsize sedan and a slight increase over the output of the Accord’s base model.
The 2017 Accord Sport Special Edition is also equipped with a sophisticated Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with Sport Mode, so you’ll combine an effortless drive with the ability to make up to an impressive 26 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway.*
The 2017 Honda Accord Sport Special Edition lives up to its name with what’s under the hood, but it also flaunts a few Sport-exclusive styling updates to separate it from regular models.
Standing on angular 19-inch alloy wheels, it makes an immediate impression on Malin and Keno drivers, and also possesses unique Sport Special Edition badging, an eye-catching rear trunk lid spoiler, LED daytime running lights, and fog lights. Simply put, you won’t have to wait until you’re behind the wheel to understand that this model is a cut above the rest.
Comfort and Convenience Features
The 2017 Honda Accord Sport Special Edition naturally provides drivers with the comfort and convenience features enjoyed by the models that sit just below it, including a multi-angle rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity, and an indulgent 10-way power driver’s seat.
Of course, it also brings its own winning additions to the table, including:
- Leather-Trimmed Seating: While you’re enjoying the first-class performance of the Sport Special Edition, you’ll be supported by indulgent leather seating with sporty red stitching.
- Heated Seats: Oregon can get plenty cold during the winter months, but you’ll be ready to keep the chills at bay by activating your heated front seats.
