2011 Honda Accord EX-L V-6 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
The 2011 Accord Coupe EX-L V6 looks great outside and inside. The exterior looks upscale and sporty like an entry-level luxury car. The handling is tight and sporty. The black leather interior looks sporty and upscale. It's hot! The Accord coupe exterior looks different than the sedan. I would compare the V6 Accord Coupe more to an Infinity or Acura than a Camry, Fusion or Sonata sedan. We also own a loaded 2010 Camry XLE sedan to compare against. The Camry has a more comfortable, quiet and luxurious ride, but the Accord V6 Coupe is more sporty and hot looking inside and out. The Honda Accord is super reliable, so you always have dependable transportation and no headaches. It's a good buy.
The chrome door handles, lip spoiler and alloy wheels on the Coupe V6 are really cool. The black leather interior is sporty and luxurious. The dash looks cool, especially at night with blue lights. The leather seats are high quality for class. The EX-L interior appearance is comparable to an Acura. It has many features found on luxury cars, such as two seat position memories that adjust with your key, hi and low settings on heated seats, heated side mirrors, great vanity mirror lights, I:Pod interface works well, stereo with subwoofer rocks, interior lights auto-dim after entry, coupe rear seats have decent room, paddle shifters and great cup holders. Exterior looks upscale. Reliable!
We felt the navigation was not worth the money so we did not get it. Other reviews said the navigation could look better. It does not have the auto-dimming rear mirror that the Camry has. Our Accord is bumpier and slightly noisier than our Camry, but the Accord Coupe V6 engine note has a really cool, sports car-like growl, and the cabin noise is not as bad as we expected. Maybe the active noise canceling technology helps, and the stereo has an automatic speed adjusted volume. The Toyota Camry is more comfortable and quiet. The Accord is a little more expensive than competitors. The Hyundai Sonata is cheaper. The exterior of the Accord sedan is average, but the Coupe looks much better.
