What is the Honda Accord Special Edition? 

The Honda Accord Special Edition is a feature-laden alternative that has valuable add-ons without the additional cost of the EX trim. The 2007 Honda Accord SE had an MSRP of $20,825 but can now be found used starting at $5,600. The Special Edition comes with two engine options, better brakes, steering wheel audio controls, and other popular features in the LX

2007 Honda Accord overview

Before looking at what makes the Special Edition special, let’s start with an overview of the Honda Accord. 
The 2007 Honda Accord continues to be one of the best mid-size sedans on the market—winning more than a dozen “10 Best Cars” awards from Car and Driver. Even as the last model year of the seventh-generation Accords, Honda still squeezed in a face-lift and body sculpt for the 2007 models. Shoppers were greeted with a new grille and front bumper, along with a new rear bumper, deck lid, and tail lights. The new sculpting on the body exuded agility and had a muscular look.
The interior styling was refreshed to include a new instrumental panel, steering wheel, and satin chrome accents. Honda also didn’t compromise comfort, providing generous seat padding and legroom in the front, along with roomy back seats. Our only complaint is the small trunk space. With 14 cubic feet of space, it is smaller than other mid-size sedans like
Toyota Camry
Nissan Altima
The ride quality of the Accord is outstanding across all trims and engines. The smooth handling and stable rides make the car a joy to drive. The two engine options cater to different driving styles. The 2.4-liter I-4 engine comes with i-VTEC technology which maintains a strong torque and responsiveness at all engine speeds. The 3.0-liter V6 engine delivers power while being light-footed, making the Accord a peppy drive.
For shoppers who are looking for exceptional fuel efficiency, the
Accord Hybrid
is available with even better performance. With the combination of a V6 gasoline engine and an electric motor, the Accord’s power is amped up and overtakes the regular V6 models—yet it has a fuel efficiency of 30/37 miles per gallon city/highway

What’s special about the Special Edition?

Just as we thought the Honda Accord couldn’t get better, the base VP trim now comes with more standard features. However, even with cruise control, power locks, and keyless entry, this trim is still lacking popular features that shoppers look for.
The Special Edition is made to be ‘just right’ for most shoppers—it has an impressive list of features without being overly frivolous. While the Special Edition only comes as a sedan, this year it comes with the option of a 3.0-liter V6 engine, which produces 244 horsepower. However, as with all V6 engines, this will decrease fuel efficiency. 
Other additional features on the Special Edition include: 
  • Five-speed automatic transmission
  • 16-inch aluminum wheels
  • Rear disc brakes and electronic brake-force distribution
  • Steering wheel audio controls
  • Folding rear seats
  • Six-speaker stereo with a CD changer
  • Body-color side sills and carbon fiber interior accents
These extra features will cost an additional $2,200 above the base MSRP for the 2.4 SE, and $4,725 extra for the 3.0 SE. On the other hand, the 2007 Honda Accord Special Edition can now be found used for an affordable price. 

2007 Honda Accord Special Edition vs. EX

The Special Edition comes with an impressive list of additional features, but is getting the EX trim a better choice? With an original starting MSRP of $22,550, the EX trim comes with the following features in addition to the SE: 
  • 1st-row regular power sliding and tilting glass sunroof
  • Heated mirrors
  • Driver lumbar support
  • Leather upholstery
  • Automatic dual-zone climate control
Unless you are getting the 3.0L V6 version of the EX, these additional features are about comfort over performance. On the other hand, since the EX is more valuable, it may
increase car insurance rates
Key Takeaway The bare-bones VP trim is perfect for those who just want a vehicle that takes them to their destination. However, if you want the extra features without being too frivolous, the Special Edition will be just right for you.
