Hello, So I'm looking into leasing a 2018 accord sport 2.0t and the only thing keeping me from doing it is how good the sound system is. I'm not a crazy hifi person, but would still like Bose-like sound quality. If anyone has tested or has this car, please let me know how it is.

  • In the Touring model you get the best system Honda offers - 450 watt, 10 speakers with a sub-woofer. I did a quick listen and it sounded awfully good to me and noticeably better than the lessor systems they offer. Sorry I can't compare it Bose, but it is definitely a high quality sound system.

    Stay away from Touring Accord sound system. I traded a 2010 Acura TL Tech for a 2018 Accord Touring.
    Sound system in Honda is terrible. It does not sound too bad at low to mid volume but anything above mid it fails quickly.
    I you care there is no CD player. Surround Sound is worse than terrible. I keep this turned off.

    Traded to Honda to save a little money and more leg room for kids in back seat but the audio system STINKS.

    This is not true. My mother has an RDX Accura and has own many different Sedans from Acura. The speaker system is close to the same. The only difference is that in the Acura you can adjust center channel volume. The speaker system is way better than bose lol. Bose is garbage in all honesty

    This is completely untrue. I traded a 2016 Acura TLX and my 2018 Accord Touring is hands down better.

    I did find that the sound in the Accord Sport and models under the touring was not good. Flat/hollow.

    Finally, expect to have to make a trip back to the dealer at some point to seal up the rear deck. I have been in a couple of accords (including mine) and you can hear a vibration/buzzing from base rich music. All models seem to have this issue.
