I saw a sport V6 in reflex blue and thought it looked awesome. I very much liked the 19" wheels.
#17655 of 20239 Best deal on a new mid-sized V6?
Mar 03, 2013 (12:05 pm)
Saw an ad in my local paper yesterday for a 200 Limited V6, under $20k. Seemed pretty loaded with leather etc., and has one of Chrysler's best engines. The 200 isn't that well regarded in the mid-sized class (as in "last", with cousin Avenger), but since its refresh last year the looks inside and out aren't too bad, so if someone really wants that V6 feel, this might be the cheapest way to get it in a new car.

Don't think you saw a 2014 V6. They aren't making them.

My Ford touch is not that complicated, so obviously you have never used it.
There are some functional issues, but the good thing about software is that it can be improved without 'throwing out the baby with the bath water'.

I looked into it. The new Honda Accord Sport has dual exhaust and 18" alloys, and is 4cyl. Easy to mistake for a V6. It is even more odd that the bigger wheels are not standard on the V6 EX-L or the Touring.... Making it very hard to spot the higher end models visually.

Once I parked it next to a soul red model that settled the color decision. Black interior.
The 19's look cool but I drive in allot of snow in the winter. I do not want to buy dedicated rims and tires like we had to for the wifes Sonata. At least they are both alloy rims.
I'm a minority on the subject of not wanting a V-6. Fuel economy is a factor with all the driving I do. Still waiting to hear back on delivery......

I did not see 19" wheels offered on the Accord in any trim or package. The full zoot V6 coupe only offeres 18" alloys. However, in other Accord news I am now convinced that all V6 Accords are capable of sub-6 second 0-60 times. The coupe was long-term tested by C/D, and they were able to achieve 5.5 seconds with the automatic version. The more I see the new Accord, the more I like it.

Take those two issues away and it's a really sweet ride. I hope the tank is addressed soon. I'm leasing this. For the number of miles I put on and what my company gives me it works out better than buying.
