This is it, the midcycle refresh of the 2011 Honda Accord. When we saw prototypes running around Death Valley we figured it wouldn't be long before the production version showed up.

Unfortunately, the upgrades on the 2011 Honda Accord coupe and sedan are a little more sedate than we expected. There's no six-speed transmission as we had hope. Instead, Honda changed the gearing of the five-speed automatic to improve mileage. The four-cylinder models are now expected to get EPA ratings of 23 city and 34 highway mpg when equipped with the automatic transmission. The V6 automatic is expected to get 19 city and 30 highway mpg.

That's pretty much it for mechanical upgrades. The rest of the 2011 Accord's changes are styling updates on the exterior and some minor changes to the interior. On the outside there's a new grille, revised bumper, updated wheel design and a new trunk lid. Interior upgrades include shift paddles for V6 coupes and USB ports on all coupes and some sedans. Revised climate controls are also part of this year's upgrades.

I think the Coupe and the CrossTour look the best out of the 3 styles. The sedan just does not do it for me.

I think all manufacturers are trying to program their engines to match the MPG cycle ratings test.
Real world mileage has never been further from the labels as now
