"Honda offers this 6-speed 4-cylinder combination exclusively in the LX/LX-S (Coupe), EX, and Sport trim levels of the sedan or coupe, so if you want leather and/or the factory navigation system in a 4-cylinder Accord with the 6-speed manual transmission, unfortunately you're out of luck. "

Only in the USA.

Touring I4 6MT owner in Canada here. :)

Any big deal about buying one over there, then bringing it back to the states?

Those prices of course justifies the cost of changes in the production line for the manual tranny...

Judging by current exchange rates and the feature set of the Touring I4, I don't think the price difference is really that high. Also, I paid $32901 OTR for my Touring. You can get $1000 knocked off if you're paying cash, which you have to if you're going to import one from Canada anyway.

Canada sees a mix of vehicle sales that shows a higher priority for fuel efficiency: fewer trucks and near-trucks (the minivans, SUVs, etc.), a few small cars not sold in the U.S., and some cars with different powertrain options. Most Americans would blanch at the ~$1/per gallon higher gasoline prices in Canada. The OP can enjoy his Touring I4 6MT; I'll take the V-6 and cheaper fill-ups, thanks.

Here in Alberta, we have no lack of trucks and SUVs. Most people make so much money here (I don't work in the oil industry, but being in engineering still gets me decent amount of cash), and gas prices are like 30 cents per liter than the province over, we honestly could care less about that extra $1 or $2 of gas per 100km on a V6 Accord.

No manual = no go for me. I'd buy a 6-6 sedan if I could, lol.

Curiously I think I am right in saying that truck ownership as a percentage of total vehicle purchase, though the actual numbers are much smaller. The F150 is by far the largest selling vehicle. The F150 has sold 14,500 in the first two months, against 6500 for the best placed car - the Elantra. In between is the Dodge Ram at 10,500.

as the previous poster says - people complain about gas prices in Alberta but it does nothing to quench their RAM hemi, V10 pick up truck buying habits. Hybrid sales are next to zero. More manuals are sold in Quebec - it's that French blood. I haven't yet even seen a manual transmission accord sedan though i think we have one or two at our depot.

Before you spend a lot of time on evaluating a Honda Accord or any Honda vehicle, make sure up front that you can live with the option package offered. Honda USA has very poor point color choice options on the Accord coupe, especially the manual and is totally inflexible. For the manual four cylinder coupe, no EXL leather, EX only in black. Only three color options for the manual V-6. More color options are available on manual options in Canada then in the USA. Honda USA will not allow you to special order even in available colors exported to Canada. No loyalty bonus for long term Honda owner to take a different model offered. Honda USA will not honor the manufacturer warrantee if you purchase it in Canada and bring it over to the United States.

Granted few companies are still offering a manual but if Honda is going to offer them have a decent choice of colors available that includes those colors that are exported to Canada. Probably only difference is the speedometer between the USA and Canada versions. Honda coupe sales are not likely to cannibalize sales from any other part of the company. My experience in ordering a Honda has turned me off to Honda management, especially marketing. I have purchased new three Honda Accords and have driven a Honda 25 out of my last 31 years. My opinion Honda engineering is very good but Honda marketing is very poor and short sighted.
