2011 Honda Accord EX-L 4dr Sedan w/Navigation (2.4L 4cyl 5A)
Honda has done it again with the 2011 Accord 4 cyl sedan (leather with navigation/ rear-view camera) It feels like the Acura TSX / TL on the inside, is built on the same frame as the $ 43,000 Acura TL. It tales regular gas (instead of premium) and actual does 27 mpg in mixed driving. On the highway you can easily get 35 mpg if you drive carefully. if you want performance, the 4 cyl engine is more than adequate fro passing, merging and cornering safely. Cornering is a joy and almost feels like a BMW 328 xi. Main drawback is lack of AWD version for people who live in the snow belt like me.
1) Interior is fabulous- layout, comfort, tech features 2) Voice activated bluetooth and nav 3) Fabulous sound system for the price point 4) Very nice driving performance- sure footed, great cornering, precise steering (almost like a German car) Overall a perfect blend of value, performance, luxury!
1) Headlights are weak for driving in the country 2) Lack of AWD for those who live in the snow-belt / hills 3) Memory seat option and split seats in the rear 4) Maybe a sports wagon with AWD? Would buy in a heart-beat!
