Set to go on sale in October, the 2011 Honda Accord Sedan and Coupe receive significant updates, including improved fuel economy, enhanced exterior and interior styling, and the addition of a new Special Edition (SE) trim level.
Available as either a sedan or a coupe in 4-cylinder and V-6 variations, the Accord is designed to offer a balance of 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 estimated fuel-economy ratings for Accord 4-cylinder sedan models equipped with an automatic transmission improve to 8.8/5.8 city/highway L/100Km (7% better city and 11% better highway than the comparable 2010 model).
The 2011 Accord Sedan's exterior is designed to express a more upscale and powerful presence with new styling for the front grille, front bumper and rear deck lid, along with a new wheel design.
Building on the sedan's design character, the Accord Coupe's unique muscular stance is enhanced with a bolder front grille design, new front bumper shape, enhanced brakelight appearance and a new wheel design for V-6 models.
A special edition “SE” model replaces the current base “LX” model, and adds valuable standard features such as 8-way power driver seat and power lumbar support, alloy wheels, premium audio with a subwoofer and XM satellite radio, Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®, automatic headlights, security system and more. (These standard features carry through to all other models in the Accord lineup.)
