The 2011 edition is more of a refinement rather than a revamp, improving on the Accord's smallest details. For instance, they've now fitted front corner sensors in addition to the ones at the rear to aid parking in tight spaces. The 3.5L variant now comes with Bluetooth connectivity as well, putting it up to par with its rivals. And those who opt for the 2.4L variant gets a special treat with a new 17” alloy wheel design. But the most important upgrade of all is the new jack knife key that folds away, stopping it from punching holes in your expensive trousers.
There's not much room left for improvement under the hood, as Honda had already given the Accord the best engines since the very beginning. Thus, it carries-over the proven 3.5L V6 engine equipped with Honda's Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) technology. Even if it's capable of delivering 271 horsepower firing on all six cylinders, it won't suck the oil wells dry, because it can run on just four or three cylinders to save on fuel. Meanwhile, the 2.4L variant still benefits from Honda's i-VTEC technology, pumping out a decent 178 horsepower.
Boasting the biggest cabin space in its class, the new Accord transports all its passengers in absolute comfort. And its array of safety features should keep all its occupants in check: 6 airbags with an Occupant Position Detection System (3.5 liter variant), ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) with EBD (Electronic Brake force Distribution), and VSA (Vehicle Stability Assist). Not to mention, the 2011 Accord's safety performance has earned it a maximum 5-star rating from the National Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA).
Designed to deliver an impressive driving experience beyond power, the 2011 Honda Accord is now available at P1,700,000 for the 2.4L variant and P2,050,000 for the top of the line 3.5L V6.
