Every now and then it’s nice to be told that you’re special, and Honda is giving its bread-and-butter Honda Accord sedan the “special” treatment for 2017.

-

The new 2017 Honda Accord Sport Special Edition sedan slides in between the 2017 Honda Accord Sport and EX levels of the Accord’s multi-trim model line. With the same 189-hp four-cylinder engine, the Sport Special Edition builds upon the feature content of the Accord Sport, adding heated leather seats with red stitching inside and a “Special Edition” badge on the outside. At $26,250 for the base 6-speed manual model (an optional CVT costs $800), the new Accord Sport Special Edition costs exactly $1000 more than the 2017 Accord Sport, the one with unheated, cloth-covered seats and no badge to provide daily reminders that the owner is special.

Like the rest of the 2017 Honda Accord sedan and coupe model lines, the standard Accord Sport sees its price rise by $150. The least expensive Accord, the 185-hp, 6-speed manual-equipped LX sedan, now starts at $23,190, a price that continues to include such features as a backup camera, Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity, and dual-zone automatic climate control. Both a CVT ($800) and Honda Sensing ($1000, but only with the CVT) are available, the latter of which includes a host of safety features including forward-collision warning, lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and more. These two options are also available on the sportier LX-S coupe (starting at $24,860) and Sport sedan, as well as the $26,985 EX coupe and $26,565 EX sedan.

Meanwhile, the leather-lined, four-cylinder EX-L coupe ($29,830) and sedan ($29,655) remain CVT-only. Opting for Honda Sensing adds $2000 to the bill on those cars, as it’s paired with a navigation system. The Accord EX-L also offers the option of Honda’s 278-hp V-6. While sedans are stuck with a standard 6-speed automatic transmission ($31,730), coupe consumers can choose between a 6-speed manual ($32,005) or an automatic transmission. Finally, top-of-the-line V-6 Touring models ($35,210 coupe; $35,655 sedan) include both navigation and Honda Sensing as standard equipment, as well as LED headlights, automatic high-beam headlights, and rain-sensing wipers.

With the return of the 49 mpg Accord Hybrid to the lineup for 2017, it’s little surprise that Honda has left its recently revamped gas-powered Accord lineup relatively unchanged for the new model year. Still, the new Sport Special Edition gives the regular-old non-hybrid Accord just the right value-added trim to remind consumers that their version of the popular mid-sized Honda sedan stands apart.
