Honda Accord Loses Manual Transmission

A six-speed manual transmission was previously a no-cost option for Sport models with either the 192-hp 1.5-liter engine or the 252-hp 2.0-liter engine. However, the Japanese marque stated that the manual made up only around 1 to 2 percent of Accord sales, forcing them to give up on trying to #SavetheManuals in the mid-size sedan segment. From the Accord’s 267,567 units sold in 2019, only around 2500–5000 of those were sold with stick-shifts which is apparently not enough for Honda to justify the business case. Honda’s head of product planning, Gary Robinson, even said in an interview that the company did not plan to kill any manual-transmission models, and even suggested that it might expand the number of manual offerings.
