While the 2011 Honda Accord is a mid-size sedan by most eyes, it qualifies as a large car according to the EPA.

Its interior really does feel big-car accommodating for driver and passengers. The front seats are comfortable and supportive, there's plenty of legroom in back, and the trunk is huge. About the only issue is the sloping roofline, which might limit headroom for the tallest adults in back. In the Coupe, the backseats aren't so easily accessible, but average-size adults will fit.

The Accord's mid-size-plus size doesn't quite translate with regard to cargo space, though; its trunk is only average, and the somewhat small opening limits its usefulness for loading larger items. A split, fold-forward back seat with pass-through is standard in all models, though.

Build quality and Honda's reputation for reliability and resale value remain strong, and our editors have found the current Accord to be well-assembled and rattle-free—even though the swooping, dual-cockpit instrument panel appears more complex in construction and appearance than other affordable sedans.

Across the Accord lineup, noise and vibration are about the best they get in this budget-minded sedan class. Base four-cylinder models aren't quite luxury-car smooth, but they're quite and well isolated, and in upper trims with the V-6, Honda employs an active noise-canceling system and active motor mounts.

Conclusion

With interior appointments that feel big-accommodating, as well as luxury-car upscale at times, the 2011 Honda Accord goes beyond what typical, budget-minded mid-size buyers might expect.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
