I've got a 2019 Accord 2.0T 6 Spd manual. I had a guy in a Kia Optima EX pull up next to me at the light and he actually tried to beat me off the line. That car only has 195 lbs of torque and 178 hp. :smile_big: needless to say he lost badly but then desperately just kept trying to get in front of me through traffic. I guess he doesn't know much about the new Accord.

The Optima certainly looks the part of a sporty sedan, but it doesn't have the powertrain to match. He should have gone with the SX and its 2.0l turbo 4. Doesn't sound like he did his research before deciding on the trim level.

I had that happen to me all the time. I had a couple Tacoma’s, minivans and especially Camry’s try to race me at stop lights. The 2.0T with the 10 speed is no joke. Now that I have the Type R tho, literally everyone tries to race me. I don’t even bother anymore. I’d rather save my gas lol.
