Theyre both different cars built for different purposes. The Accord is definitely the most driver oriented of the Premium D segment. I love mine it looks fantastic has solid presense and has the best ride of all our cars. The RS is fun to drive for sure great engine handling but its not pitched as a luxury car. So its kind of like comparing and EVO with a 330i. Depending on what you're looking at there will be buyers for both cars.

For me, the RS.
Even if Honda has a marque, and has advantages over Skoda, there's no other car in the Indian tarmac (in this tag) which gives as much adrenaline rush.
RS is so very sporty to the real sense, while Accord is more on the traditional executive, refinement and luxury side. I don't think the comparison is just.
RS is in a different league altogether, and so is Accord (& Camry). Both have it's own niche segment, only handful of which would sway either way. Not majority.

Me too going for the ACCORD.. They really can pump up more BHP from that engine similar to what we have in UAE, but lets live with what we have right
