The 2010 Honda Accord Coupe was highly rated and favored in its day, but has since dropped in popularity because of safety recalls and uncomfortable seats. However, many still stand by this two-door classic. 
Even if you spend very little time in the realm of automobiles, you’ve likely heard of the Honda Accord. This widespread and affordable midsize car has spent many years of popularity on the road and has been made available in many variations. The 2010 two-door
coupe version
of this Honda staple got a lot of love when it first came on the scene, but some people would rather avoid it altogether. 
Everyone has different priorities when it comes to their vehicles, though, so let’s go over the details of the 2010 Honda Accord Coupe to determine if it’s right for you.

Style in a small package: the 2010 Honda Accord Coupe

The 2010 Honda Accord Coupe was released with three trim levels starting at $23,355 MSRP. Each of the
LX-S
,
EX
, and
EX-L
coupes comes standard with front-wheel drive (FWD) and a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that gets you:
  • 190 horsepower 
  • 162 pound-feet of torque 
  • 21 mpg city, 31 mpg highway, and 25 mpg combined 
For some added kick to your drive, the EX-L was also made available with a 3.5-liter V6 engine capable of delivering 271 horsepower and 254 lb-ft torque. You would see a decrease in your fuel economy, but you’d get to enjoy the peppier powertrain. 

Is the 2010 Honda Accord comfortable?

Honda’s whole MO is the (polyamorous) marriage of practicality, affordability, and comfort, and they typically deliver. The 2010 Accord coupe isn’t unlike that usual makeup, but it isn’t its most shining example either. 
The standard cloth seating for five in the first two trims and leather seats in the final trim can keep one comfortable enough, but recent years have revealed that many find them to be unsupportive. And of course, the back seat of any coupe is not known for being particularly spacious—in the 2010 Accord, you’ll lose about 10 inches in both the rear legroom and hip room compared to the front seats. 
However, Honda adds some more creature comfort features to the higher trims that can certainly make a difference in your driving comfortability. Head to the EX and EX-L coupes for heated mirrors, heated front seats, a 10-way power driver’s seat with lumbar support, and dual-zone automatic climate control.

Is the 2010 Honda Accord Coupe reliable?

While the 2010 Accord coupe specifically was not ranked by J.D. Power, the four-door sedan managed an 83/100 consumer rating for reliability when it first came out. 
Since then, the stats have been a little less promising. The 2010 Honda Accord has had 13 recalls announced, most of them concerning the functionality of airbags. Enter your car’s VIN or year and model on
Honda’s recall lookup tool
to make sure the recalls aren’t affecting your vehicle (or vehicle to-be). 

Is the 2010 Honda Accord Coupe safe?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) didn’t leave an overall safety rating for the 2010 Honda Accord coupe, but it did reward it with five stars for frontal collisions and 4.5 stars for side collisions. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) only has safety ratings for the Accord’s four-door sedan, and while it didn’t get boosted to Top Safety Pick status, it scored the highest “Good” ratings in most categories. 
Likely, the good but not necessarily stellar safety ratings come down to the bare bones standard safety features. The 2010 Accord Coupe has three locations of airbags (be sure to check for recalls), stability and traction control, and anti-whiplash head restraints for rear collisions.

2010 Honda Accord Coupe trim levels

There are three trim levels for the 2010 Honda Accord Coupe: LX-S, EX, and EX-L. The MSRP started at $23,355 for the base LX-S which offered:
  • Cruise control 
  • Remote keyless entry 
  • Fold-down rear seat
  • Power windows
  • Steering wheel controls 
  • Cloth seating 
  • Air conditioning with air-filtration system 
  • 160-watt AM/FM/6-disc in-dash audio system with six speakers 
  • MP3 compatibility 
  • Auxiliary audio input 
For $24,680 MSRP, you’d see a handful of more comfort and convenience features in the EX coupe:
  • Heated side mirrors 
  • One-touch power moonroof with tilt feature 
  • Illuminated cargo area 
  • 270-watt AM/FM/6-disc in-dash premium audio system with seven speakers and one subwoofer 
If you really wanted to crank up the bells and whistles and add more tech and luxury features, the top-tier EX-L initially cost $26,880 and provided:
  • Bluetooth 
  • Hands-free phone use
  • Satellite radio 
  • Leather seats
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel 
  • Leather-wrapped shift knob (for manual transmission) 
  • 10-way power driver’s seat with lumbar support 
  • Heated front seats 
Optional add-ons for the EX-L could also include things like a navigation system, an integrated garage door opener, and a rear spoiler for some style points. If you’re in the market for a 2010 Accord coupe today, the prices are likely to be much lower—so get whichever one meets your needs!
