Last week I had the opportunity to drive the all new Honda Accord Coupe. And, while I was curious, I wasn't quite looking forward to it. After a week, I can honestly say: I'd buy this car. Yeah, I said it. I'd buy a Honda Accord. Of course, it'd have to be the coupe ... and it would need to be equipped with a manual transmission and the V-6. But for $30K, I'd absolutely buy this car.
And, LaneWatch, today's rave is just one of the reasons why.
I've never seen a feature like this, and the first time I turned on my blinker, I nearly swerved into the cars it was trying to help me avoid. LaneWatch is activated when you hit the right turn signal, and gives you a wide-angle view of the passenger-side roadway. The view is courtesy of a camera position below the passenger-side exterior mirror.
This is one of the coolest, and most helpful, new features I've seen on a car recently. Well done, Honda.
