The 2011 Ford Fusion gets a 2.5-liter four-pot motor and generates slightly lower power and more torque than the Accord. It is also marginally quicker than the Accord as well. The Hyundai Sonata dishes out some impressive power and torque figures for the segment and is the quickest one here too. The Mazda 6 is average at the most in terms of power and torque output but is sportier than the Accord.

2011 Honda Accord Fuel Economy

9.0/10

The 2011 Honda Accord gas mileage figures are impressive especially with the base I-4 motor. Fuel economy is rated at 23 mpg for city and 34 mpg highway with five-speed automatic. The five-speed manual offers 23 mpg city and 33 mpg highways. 

Even the V6 engine’s mileage ratings stand at 20 and 30 mpg in city and highway respectively, making it desirable for many.

Even though the Honda Accord was the mileage champion for many years and the mileage was improved with minor tweaks to the engine and transmission, it still falls short of the Hyundai Sonata that averages 28 MPG. The Ford Fusion returns marginally fuel efficiency ratings for cities, highways, and combined respectively, thanks to its smaller fuel tank that can hold 17.5-gallons. The Mazda 6 disappoints the most with its sub-par fuel economy ratings despite being not as powerful as the Sonata and covers the least range of 555 miles on the highway.

2011 Honda Accord Interior

8.0/10

The 2011 Honda Accord interior gets minor updates and new features. The cabin is spacious, light, and airy, with a nice layout. Everything feels right for the price and seems where one would want it. The Accord delivers pleasing design and materials. The leather is perfectly tailored and is of high quality. The standard tilt and telescoping steering wheel provide a good range of adjustments and compliment the driver seat adjustments to find a perfect driving position for everyone. The Accord provides a wide range of convenience features that are not exclusive to higher trims. The door lock has multiple functions like raising and lowering the windows and opening or closing the sunroof.

2011 Honda Accord Exterior

The 2011 Honda Accord exterior gets a subtle makeover to enhance the aerodynamics in order to make the sedan more fuel-efficient. The front end has that smart appeal with a sleek grille and stretched dual-barrel headlamps. The side profile is neat with a sculpted line running along with the doors towards the rear fenders. The rear end remains the same as before with a smart appeal as the front and a unique tail light design.

The Ford Fusion has a vaguely similar front-end design to the Accord but has a bigger and more pronounced grille design and has a unique wheel design as well. The Hyundai Sonata follows a completely different design approach as compared to the Accord and the Fusion. It gets the brand’s new fluidic design language and has a bigger-than-life appeal from the outside. The Mazda 6 is, perhaps, the best-looking sedan in the segment. At 72.7 and 58.1 inches, the Honda Accord is the widest and tallest sedan and sports the highest ground clearance of 6.1 inches. On the other hand, the Hyundai Sonata shares a similar wheelbase of 110 inches with the Honda, while the Mazda 6 is the longest at 193.7 inches.

Standout exterior features:

  • One-touch moonroof with tilt
  • Remote entry system with power window control
  • Fog lights
  • Chrome exhaust
  • 17-inch alloy wheels with all-season tires
  • Double wishbone front suspension with Independent multi-link rear suspension.

2011 Honda Accord Safety

9.0/10

Standout safety features:

  • Anti-Lock Braking System 
  • Electronic Brake Distribution 
  • Vehicle Stability Assist 
  • Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) Body Structure

2011 Honda Accord Final Verdict
