The 2011 Honda Accord line-up includes sedans, coupes and the new Crosstour wagon, with three engine choices, 5- and 6-speed manual transmissions or a 5-speed automatic. All-wheel drive is available on the Crosstour. Rather than offering traditional options or option packages, Honda tends to mark upgrades in equipment with a different model designation. As a result, by Honda’s count, there are 26 different models or trim levels in the Accord line. (All New Car Test Drive prices are Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Prices, which do not include destination charge and may change at any time without notice.)
The Accord LX Sedan ($21,180) is the entry model, powered by a 177-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. It comes with cloth upholstery, air conditioning, power mirrors, windows and door locks, a tilt-telescoping steering column, folding rear seats and a 160-watt sound system with single CD and an auxiliary jack. The standard wheels are 16-inch steel with plastic covers. The 5-speed manual transmission is standard, and the 5-speed automatic ($800) is available. The LX-P Sedan ($22,980), P for Premium, adds alloy wheels, a power driver’s seat, illuminated power window switches with express up/down for the front passenger, a security system and a chrome tailpipe. The automatic is standard.
The 2011 Accord SE Sedan ($23,730) builds on the LX-P package with heated front seats, leather seating and driver’s power-lumbar support
The Accord EX Sedan ($24,105) gets a higher-revving, 190-horsepower version of the 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, with standard 5-speed manual and no leather.

The automatic is available, and for 2011 EX models add a USB audio connector to the stereo.
The Accord EX V6 Sedan ($27,080) features a 271-hp, 3.5-liter V6 with 5-speed automatic; fog lights come standard.
The Accord EX-L ($27,355) and EX-L V6 Sedan ($29,430) add leather on the seats and steering wheel, while the four-cylinder EX-L comes standard with the automatic transmission.

The Accord LX-S Coupe ($22,555) is the entry-level two-door version, powered by the 190-horsepower version of the four-cylinder engine with a 5-speed manual or automatic. The Accord coupes are generally equipped comparably to sedans with the same letter designation.
The Accord Coupe EX ($24,455) and EX-L ($27,105) come standard with the automatic transmission. The 2011 Accord Coupe EX-L V6 ($29,730) offers a choice of 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic with paddle shifters on the steering column.

The Crosstours come with a few more features than EX and EX-L sedans, including a new Active Sound Control noise-canceling system. The Crosstour EX-L 4WD ($34,020) features Honda’s Real Time 4WD system. Navigation and rearview camera are available on the Crosstour EX-L ($34,770) and EX-L 4WD ($36,220)
All Accords have six airbags, including two-stage front airbags, front passenger side-impact airbags and head-protection curtains for all outboard seats. Other standard safety features include active front head restraints, electronic stability control, antilock brakes with electronic brake distribution and brake assist, and a tire pressure monitor. The optional navigation system includes a rearview camera, which can help the driver spot children and other hazards behind the car when backing up.
The Honda Accord comes as a four-door sedan, two-door coupe or Crosstour wagon/crossover. All variants are big on efficiency, whether that means getting the most power and range from a gallon of gas, delivering the most interior space for the exterior dimensions or providing the smoothest, quietest ride and highest level of crash protection with the least weight. Accord offers a range of four- and six-cylinder engines, with extra cargo capacity and optional all-wheel-drive in the Crosstour. Every Accord is easy to operate, well-engineered and well-mannered. Moving four people comfortably or enjoying the long way home, any Accord is up to the task.
