I'd estimate that the 9th gen coupe's popularity hit a peak early on in this generation, as the majority of the coupes that I see are 2013-2015 models. I hardly ever see any 16 or 17 coupes. In fact, I've only seen two in my area outside of dealer lots: a black LX-S 6MT (I can tell by the way it's driven that it's a manual) and a black Touring. Out of the 2013-2015's that I see, the vast majority of them are V6's (unless the 18" Sport rims and OEM dual exhaust are popular mods for 4-cylinder owners...) which is odd given the supposedly low production numbers of the V6 relative to the I4. It makes me wonder if, of all of the V6 Accords that were made this generation, most of them were coupes and there are fewer V6 sedans made than I had originally thought. Then again, I do see a heck of a lot of EX-L V6 sedans of those years, so maybe not...
Of the 2013-2015 sedans, I see mostly the Sport and LX trims, followed by the EX-L and the EX-L V6. The Touring and EX w/cloth seem to be the rarest trims of those years in my area. For the 2016 and 2017, I see a fair amount of EX/EX-L trims (can't tell the EX and EX-L apart anymore based on exterior features, so I have to lump them together) and I see not quite as many LX's. The EX-L V6 is hard to spot because it looks just like an EX/EX-L from every angle but the rear, but it seems to be the rarest trim level this time around. The Sport appears to be the most common, but I'm actually shocked by the sheer number of Tourings that I've seen on the road. I swear that 9 out of 10 16/17 V6 Accord sedans are the Touring trim. I guess nobody wanted a 2013-2015 Touring because it didn't look any better than the EX-L V6 that cost thousands less (I personally thought it looked worse because the LED headlights weren't blacked-out around the projectors like the halogen headlights on the lower trims) and the only unique features were the dynamic cruise control and the LED low beams.
I, too, would love to see an official breakdown of production by trim level, powertrain, and even by color. I think color would be the most interesting, and I'd be willing to bet that Hematite and Kona Coffee on the sedan, and Tiger Eye Pearl on the coupe, were the least common colors.
