Similarly, though it’s only been four months, I have not once regretted going with the happy valley utah Touring rather a different trim . I think you are right in thinking it cant do more. I tested front- and all-wheel-drive versions of the Grand Touring, both equipped with a Grand Touring Premium Package for an additional $1,830, bringing their as-tested prices to $33,465 and $34,765 .

- The nicer trim, rear a/c, moonroof are all great.
- It’s more of an iterative evolution, like an iPhone 6 to a 6S, not a 7.
- Biggest issue for me will be avoiding deer on the roads.
- To absorb vibration the torque converter mechanical clutch is continuously applied and released multiple times per second and after a few thousand miles slippage and shudder occurs.
- The second row gains an extra charging port that sits at 2.5 amps, plus you get access to SiriusXM, HD Radio, and a wireless charger.

I’d only factor in the headrest DVDs if you opt for the black interior. The sand interior, which we have, doesn’t match the premade headrest monitors. So if you’re picky about that – like me – you’ll want to budget for getting some custom made or reupholster the premade ones.
If horsepower is a thing though, the Sport 2.0T is the way to go. It beefs up the Accord’s horsepower rather significantly and equips a few extra features that you might enjoy. For someone who craves more launch power, you will get that with the 2.0-L turbo engine equipped. Plus you get the benefit of a smoothly shifting 10-speed automatic transmission.

Only Colours I can seem to find are black or white. Kind of disappointed nothing changed for 2018 in Canada except price. None of the upper level electronics but enough to meet my needs. Gonna focus on the 2019 since I’m a bit more familiar with that. I wrote this comparison touring vs sport a while back.
I do miss the autodimming rearview mirror and may have to get that as an addon someday. The NFC capability is interesting but not something I would use after the first month I am guessing. No need for usb ports in the back seat as well.

I live in the city and we have zero mountains or long roads anywhere. We are retired, 83 and 72 and it is difficult to deal with mazda without paperwork on oil changes. The warranty, according to mazda international is still good until October. On a car we cannot use and is not reasonable to replace.
It does however have seat warmers, rain sensing windshield wipers, tire pressure sensors, etc… I know what the differences are, I was just curious as to why some people went for the Touring or GT opposed to the s Sport. I have noticed that there doesn’t seem to be many s Sport owners on these forums.
