OP you are just trying to make yourself feel better about having a weak 1.5 engine.

The 2.0T, as I understand it, adds:
HUD
Power Seats
Sunroof
a REAL transmission, not a rubber band droner
and I am sure I am leaving stuff out.

Oh, and it'll do 102mph at the end of a 1/4 mile, it is not merely a little bit faster, it is way faster than an Accord Sport 1.5T, YOUR 1.5T Civic, the Civic Si even and a few hot hatches also.

It would be absolutely worth it to me if I was into the Accord.
It's a tuned down version of the type r

It’s more than just tuned down. The Accord version of the 2.0T has lower-flow injectors, lowered redline, a much smaller turbocharger to improve response at the expense of peak performance, runs on 87 octane, and has a different balance shaft to reduce vibration.

Well, 0.5L is 33% bigger, so really, ti's quite the bargin. I mean $4500 is only about 20% increase in price.

Could be worse, the 1.5L in our CR-V is 0.9L SMALLER and we paid more for it! I got screwed.

This is all tongue and cheek. The size of the engine is irrelevant. It's the output and performance. Plus you get the 10 speed automatic.

Only really reinforcing my point. Not worth it, it's not really any faster than the sport Accord before it and with four doors it's just another midsize sedan (which just Mazda , ford, Toyota ) is nothing really different in the power world. The civics are great because they were a huge improvement over the previous generation , in power ,

My point is , they changed the outside and powertrain but still did little to set this apart from the competition , it's not much faster(than the previous generation or the competition) , it's not more economical. It's really pointless unless you want a four door midsize. Just because it's a 2.0T doesn't make it fast , power to weight ratio matters. It looks nice. Just nothing special that I'd drop 40k on.

It’s not as powerful as the outgoing V6 but the 2.0T is a little more fuel efficient. And the latter is more important for your sales leader designed for the masses.

"Ostensibly, Honda opted for the 2.0-liter turbo for reasons of fuel economy, not performance, but the company expects the new Accord Touring’s EPA ratings to come in at only 22 mpg city and 32 mpg highway (versus the 1.5-liter’s 30/38-mpg EPA estimates with the CVT). That’s comparable with the best ratings for last year’s V-6 model, which were 21 mpg city and 33 highway. Indeed, in our highway fuel-economy loop running a steady 75 mph, the new car achieved 35 mpg, which is precisely what the last V-6–powered Accord managed." - car and driver
It's mainly technology updates.
