Thought it was going to be a little bit faster but not bad at all.

A post from Drive Accord: my wife's 2007 Accord back in the spring of 2008.

2007 Accord EX-L coupe J30A5 automatic Cool Blue-Black Interior
17mm rear bar, BFG COMP-2 A/S, Philips 9006 CrystalVision Ultra, interior LEDs, 3m Ceramic 40%

I can’t compute 0-60Mph (Because Mph cannot be measured at the drag strip unless associated with a known distance; IE: How fast are you moving at the 100’ mark) but I sure can understand the 1/4ET & Mph. First, the Mph for the 244Hp is probably spot on with a density altitude of close to sea level. I was able to Mph @ 93.95Mph, 93.71Mph, 93.21Mph, 93.16Mph & 93.09Mph in my wife’s 2007 Accord EX-L coupe J30A5 automatic. Now my Mph is at a NHRA track (Houston Raceway Park) where the Mph is an average of the top speed generated at two points on the track @ 1254’ & 1320’.

Now the ET that they publish is defiantly way off. My guess is they left off idle and let the transmission in drive; but it still is slow as I was able to pull down a 15.26ET & a 15.33ET in drive with a best of 15.149ET manual shifting @ 7000Rpm (Perfect!) and (Brake torque @ 1000Rpm).

Comparing 0-60 times on family sedans is a dick-measuring contest and misses the point. How often do you absolutely need to do 0-60 as quickly as possible? If you actually do need this on a regular basis, will +/- 1 second really matter? I understand it's fun to launch the car every now and then, but let's not get too hung up on 5.7s vs 6.7s, etc.

The new 2.5T has up to 310 lbs-ft of torque at just 2,000rpm. The real strength is going to be effortless acceleration/passing in daily driving situations.

Could not agree more!
Leave the stop watch at home and enjoy the ride.

I think the latest Car & Driver in depth review proves the non-turbo 6 is just fine and the new turbo isn't worth it, which I've been saying all along.

Consider:
  • The turbo is the slowest car in its class, while the non-turbo is still the fastest car in its class.
  • The non-turbo is 0.4 sec slower at 50-70mph than the turbo, but it's still an excellent 4.6 seconds, which equals the new Camry V6 (300 hp!) and is significantly better than any car in its non-turbo class.
  • The turbo is only marginally better in the quarter mile than the non-turbo, and how often is anyone flooring it to 90+ mph from a stop anyway.

Overall Car & Driver says "Too bad the new engine failed to separate itself versus the naturally aspirated version, which also has a responsive throttle and respectable acceleration times."

Skip the turbo, go with what is still the best base powertrain in the business and beats some of the competitors' upgraded powertrains.

The problem with the review is it looks like they were still comparing this or last year's Mazda base 4 cylinder (it's not clear) to all of the competitor's previous year models. For example, the Honda Accord was still listing the times for a N/A 2.4 4 cylinder instead of the 1.5 turbo.

And if they were still using the 2017 4 cylinder numbers, it may not be a good comparison to this years 2018 turbo because the 2018 base 4 cylinder might be heavier and have slower times.

The review was all over the place and very confusing to read and had errors through out it.
