The Audi A5 Can’t Measure Up to the 2012 Honda Accord
It’s a tough world out there in the compact sedan segment, with innovations coming off of the factory line faster than ever—but at Fisher Honda we’re pleased to see that Honda’s new Accord Coupe can still stand up to Longmont, CO’s other competitors, even the hot-shot luxury model Audi A5.
- Power – Pound for pound, the guts of the 2012 Accord Coupe have got the A5 beat. Equipped with an available 3.5L SOHC V6, the Accord EX gets up to 271 hp and clips from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.9 seconds. The Audi A5 is outmatched even with a turbocharged 2.0L, 211-hp inline-4 that reaches 60 mph at 6.2 seconds.
- Efficiency – Just because the Accord has more power doesn’t mean it costs more to fill up. Aided by an engine control system that can shut down half of the Accord’s cylinders when they aren’t needed, the EPA estimates that the Accord beats the A5 in fuel economy too at 23 mpg city/32 mpg highway vs. 21 mpg city/31 mpg highway.*
- Accolades – Perhaps the most important advantages come from the experts: Consumer Reports recommends the Honda Accord Coupe, which has been a Car and Driver “Top 10 Pick” 16 of the last 19 years, while the A5 has never made this list. Additionally, J.D. Power and Associates favors Honda over Audi for quality and long-term reliability.
