The Honda Factory Performance package is here baby, and it’s going to beef up what is an already swift coupe. The Honda Accord coupe is the best handling Honda product next to the Acura TL manual with SHAWD. Yes, when the new Acura NSX gets here, we’ll have something truly brag-worthy to roll in. For now, the Honda Factory Performance (HFP) package for the Honda Accord Coupe V6 dials up the heat.
“The new Accord Coupe V6 is already a natural on twisty roads, but the HFP package really takes it to a new level,” said Lee Niffenegger, program senior engineer at Honda Performance Development. “With a lowered ride height, sport suspension and more performance-oriented tires, the HFP kit definitely provides more controlled body motions and enhanced stability.”
So, this Honda Factory Performance package is a trim, option and suspension package. I’m on the fence regarding the looks. Some people find the regular Honda Accord Coupe attractive; however, a vast majority of people seem to more enamored with its performance. Count me as one of those people.
“The HFP package features 19-inch HFP alloy wheels; a decklid spoiler; HFP sport suspension (lowers height by 15mm and enhances handling); HFP front, side and rear underbody spoilers; red interior illumination; HFP floor mats and HFP badges for each side and the trunk. The HFP package, like all Honda Genuine Accessories, carries a 3-year/36,000-mile limited warranty when installed at the time of new vehicle purchase, and is engineered to be fully compatible with the vehicle. Enhancing its exclusive appeal, only 500 examples of this limited-edition HFP package will be sold for the 2013 Accord Coupe V6. The Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of the package, not including installation, is $4,620.” Honda of America Media
