  10. Suspension & Brakes
    Apparently the 2012 coupe and sedan have considerable more body roll that the 2011's. This could very well be due the fact that Honda has engineered the 9th gen suspension to be geared towards luxury rather than sport handling. If you compare the listed suspension between the two year cars...
