Insurance was a major factor for me, when I was comparing the 2006 RSX Type-S and my 2006 6MT coupe...in the end, I think the RSX was around $500-700 MORE a year since I was under 25 at the time. Rates here in Ontario aren't very good, but long story short I went with the Accord and when I turned 25 my rates dropped to half of what they were when I was 24.
Honestly I don't think the insurance companies look at the Accord as a sports anything...It's rated the same as any mid-size family car, with some extra dollars tacked on due to the fact it is the 2 door variant vs the 4 door model (but it doesn't change the car's class).
Long story short, call your insurance company on even use progressive online to compare cars...I think you might be surprised by what you find
