I have the OEM all-weather mats, front and back as well as the OEM trunk liner for my 2016 Touring. They look and feel really nice IMO.

Problem: We have messy winters with a lot of snow, sand and salt. There is no dead pedal coverage for the driver left foot. As a result, I get a ton of sand and water on the dead pedal which runs down into the carpet and makes a mess of things.

I have a friend with a 2017 Sport with the Weathertechs. They are very nice, however they only solve half of the driver side dead-pedal problem as they only go up halfway. I visually confirmed in his car that he still has the same problem with the dead pedal, albeit less so.

Solution? I hope. I recently purchased the 3D Maxpider mats. Although the dead pedal coverage isn't quite 100%, it's the best option I have found. They look nicer than the Weathertech's IMO as well... More sporty/classy and less "work truck". They are grippy/spongy and my heels don't slip around as much as with the OEM (and WT) rubber mats even though they are still waterproof. Jury is out on ease of cleaning and durability. I am happy with them so far.

I will be keeping the rear and trunk OEM pieces as the lack of dead-pedal coverage was my only issue with them.

I might just go and get the trunk liner from the dealer.
If it were me, I would get WT mats but go with the OEM trunk liner. The OEM rubber material is softer and offers more grip than the WT compound. Plus, it says "Accord" on it which is pretty cool.
