Default How is the driving experience for a honda accord coupe EX? 2008 or newer?

How smooth is the ride? Does it let you feel the road or lets you feel like you're hovering?

How smooth is the steering? Is it roomy for a person about 5'8 (172.5cm)? Anything else I should know about it? Thanks

Most Accords will have a firm suspension set up compared to other cars in it's segment.

Very good road feel.

Steering is lively, using the traditional hydraulic powered steering.

Should be very roomy for a 5'8 with room to spare.

Although they are categorized as an average midsized car, Honda has always taken the approach of not compromising driver car feedback and fun.

They do come with drawbacks, many consumers complain about rough rides on long hauls. However this might be unnoticeable unless you have previously driven cars with a softer ride (like a Camry).

Matted with Honda's smooth and slick 5spd manual transmission, even with its size, it's a real fun car to drive.
