2011 Honda Accord 4-Door SE

This Honda Accord sedan, not surprisingly, is a perfectly nice car but not terribly inspiring to drive. That's exactly what most Accord buyers (and there are a lot of them) want, though. And for those who yearn for a bit more excitement, a lovely stick shift comes standard with the base four-cylinder edition, a 271-hp V-6 is available, and Honda also offers a coupe version of the Accord, where a six-speed manual, V-6 combo will appeal to the most sporting customers.

I was expecting the four-cylinder/automatic powertrain in this car to be a dud, but it was much peppier than I expected. Overall, the interior is good, the exterior is fairly attractive, and the car drives very smoothly. Joe DeMatio has a great point, though: the newly redesigned Hyundai Sonata is now threatening the Accord's status in the marketplace.

Wow Hyundai just kept slapping Honda around during these reviews.Honda needs to unemployee every one of their designers.This would be step 1.
No one used the word ugly, must be the Christmas season bringing out the best in some of us.
