The 2011 Honda Accord Sedan gets significant updates, including improved fuel economy, enhanced exterior and interior styling and the addition of a new leather-equipped Special Edition (SE) trim level. The Accord offers a unique balance of style, performance, efficiency and value specific to each individual model.
Improvements to vehicle aerodynamics, engine friction and transmission gear ratios all contribute to fuel economy improvements. The EPA fuel-economy ratings for Accord 4-cylinder sedan models equipped with an automatic transmission improve by 2 mpg in the city and 3 mpg on the highway, for a city/highway rating of 23/34 mpg.
The 2011 Accord Sedan's exterior expresses a more upscale and powerful presence with a new style for the front grille, front bumper and rear deck lid, along with a new wheel design.
Striking a balance between value and luxury, the Accord SE Sedan offers the additional features from the popular Accord LX-P with the added luxury of leather-trimmed seating, heated seats, driver's power-lumbar support and a leather-trimmed steering wheel.
New features include a USB Audio Interface on Accord EX and EX-L Sedans, and a rearview camera on sedans equipped with the available Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System. Additionally, Accord EX-L V-6 models receive a two-position memory system for the driver's seat.
New for 2011, the most frequently used climate-control buttons are now positioned on the left side of the control stack, closer to the driver for ease-of-use, and less-frequently used buttons are now positioned on the right side.
A 190-horsepower, 2.4-liter DOHC 4-cylinder engine is standard in the Accord EX and EX-L Sedans. The available 3.5-liter V-6 engine produces 271-horsepower.
