The 2011 Honda Accord Coupe receives significant updates, including improved fuel economy, plus enhanced exterior and interior styling. Available in 4-cylinder and V-6 variations, the Accord Coupe offers a unique balance of style, performance, efficiency and value.
Improvements to vehicle aerodynamics, engine friction and transmission gear ratios all contribute to fuel economy improvements.
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.
New features include steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters on the Accord EX-L V-6 Coupe, and a USB Audio Interface on all coupe models. Additional interior updates include new seat fabrics on models with cloth seats, an updated instrument panel design and more-refined accent points throughout the interior.
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. Vehicle clock adjustment is also made easier by more prominent control lettering.
A 190-horsepower, 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine is standard. The available 3.5-liter V-6 engine produces 271-horsepower and takes advantage of Variable Cylinder Management technology that can deactivate up to half of the cylinders while cruising to improve fuel economy.
The performance-oriented Accord EX-L V-6 Coupe with the 6-speed manual transmission has a unique 3.5-liter V-6 VTEC engine (without VCM) that provides a performance-tuned valvetrain, intake and exhaust system to broaden the torque curve in the low- to mid-rpm range for enthusiast-level performance.
Base model estimated mpg: 23/32
Estimated starting price: $22,780
