After almost a year of looking at many cars and at first crossing off the Coupe and getting close to spending a lot more on a different brand, I have come back to Honda and really do believe the Coupe V6 Navi will be my next new car, but my dilemma is I really prefer white but just don't feel the love for the Ivory/black interior, I really prefer the full black interior, problem is no way will I do MSM, Black, Blue, or Tiger Eye, best choices for me are Silver or Red, but neither are saying buy now.

Anyone know Honda history of offering new color options at the third year of the current platform? If I had some idea that Honda would offer in 2015 what the Canadians get right now I would wait another year to get my white exterior and black interior. Last November I was almost ready to get a white Coupe but the interior stopped me, I thought maybe in 2014, well, it is almost a year later and I am thinking the same thing, just wait a little longer, it would be a second car so it is not absolutely necessary to get the car anytime soon.

Honda, please don't make me spend an extra 20k just so I can get my colors of choice!

I had the same dilemma. I liked the white but I didn't like the two tone interior. My second choice was the red. I think the San Marino Red looks fantastic on the coupe. It's a color that's not available on the sedans so it stands out in the crowd. I like it so much that this is the second one I own in that I color. My 16 year old son has inherited my 2000 Accord San Marino Red Coupe.

I would not opt for the navigation system because it's expensive, only the dealers can upgrade the maps it's and it's not the best GPS unit available. If you don't like the phone method than a good portable GPS can be purchased for about $100 with all the bells and whistles. The nice thing about the portable is that you can take it with you when you go by air and rent a car and in a couple of years you can throw it away and upgrade when new GPS features are available.

I would go for the navigation system in the sedan if I were a realtor or some other kind of salesman. I have a portable GPS and I don't use it very much because I know where I am going in my daily routine.

Unless you are a headlight maven, I am very happy with the I4 and the CVT. The engine runs as smooth as a V6 and has a wide torque band that accelerates the car smartly. The CVT transmission is the smoothest automatic I have ever driven. It always chooses the best gear ratio for the situation because it has no gears and it's variable. The drive train combination allows the car to get over 30 MPG in mixed city and urban freeway driving. If you opt for the EX-L you also get the paddle shifters which are an added amusement toy.
