Background and Identification ¶ 

For the 1998 model year, the sedan was offered DX, LX, EX, and EX-V6 trims while the Accord Coupe was offered only in LX, EX, and EX-V6 trims.

The DX model was fitted with a 2.3L I4 engine rated 130 bhp (97 kW) (from the past generation Accord), while the LX and EX included a 2.3L I4 VTEC engine rated 150 bhp (110 kW). All 4-cylinder models came with a 5-speed manual transmission standard with a 4-speed automatic optional.

The DX remained the value-oriented trim with no audio system, manual windows, manual locks, no cruise control, rear drum brakes, and 14" steel wheels. The DX Value-Package added a radio-cassette player, air conditioning, and cruise control; this was known as the Accord DX in Canada where it was the base model of the lineup.

The LX trim added power windows, power locks, door courtesy lights and 15" steel wheels; an SE (special edition) package available since 1999 added ABS and 15 inch alloy wheels.

The EX trim added a power sunroof, a single-disc radio/CD player, alloy wheels, keyless entry, rear disc brakes, ABS and upgraded cloth. Leather seating was a factory installed option for the EX.

All V6 sedan and coupe models received the new 3.0L V6 SOHC VTEC engine rated 200 bhp (150 kW) and 195 lb·ft (264 N·m) (from Acura 3.0 CL). The EX-V6 received standard leather trim, ABS, automatic transmission, and fully automatic climate control. Some dealer-installed options included: Gold finish kit, gold finish exhaust tip(s), gold finish wheel center caps, 6-disc in-dash CD changer, tape deck, fog lights, wing spoiler, alarm system, sunroof visor, car cover and accessory chrome wheels.
