New 2011 Honda V6 Accord goes on sale in NZ

The new 2011 Honda V6 Accord has gone on sale in NZ and comes packing some new features and updated styling.

There’s a new front bumper, grille, headlights and reworked detailing on the boot lid and rear lights, as well as new wheel options. The standard equipment level has also been increased so all vehicles in the range have some luxury kit.

An improved ADR fuel economy figure of 9.9L/100km, parking sensors, USB audio integration for iPod or memory sticks and an easy to use jack-knife key are just some of the new enhancements to the 2011 Honda V6 Accord.

Honda has worked hard on its fuel efficiency  with the V6 Accord’s cutting edge i-VTEC 3.5 litre, 24 valve, high torque V6 engine delivering impressive power and torque figures of 202kW @ 6200rpm and 340Nm @ 5000rpm respectively.

The V6 Accord uses Honda’s VCM (Variable Cylinder Management) technology.  This system actively monitors throttle position, vehicle speed, engine speed, automatic transmission gear selection and other factors to determine whether three, four or six cylinders are needed to meet driver demand.  This provides maximum requested power and efficiency from the powerful V6 engines available. Whether maximum power is required (six cylinders), or moderate acceleration for mild hills (four cylinders), or if the vehicle is just cruising (three cylinders), the V6 Accord makes the change on the driver’s behalf.

New features now include a USB audio function for iPod and memory stick audio integration. There’s a new jack-knife key that has a key-fob operated window-up/down and sunroof-open/close function paired with driver’s door lock activation. Dual parking sensors at the front and four at the rear of the vehicle are now also  standard kit.

The updated range includes seven V6 Honda Accord model variants, including Sport and high-spec Mugen options, giving Honda fans a variety of options. The new 2011 Honda V6 Accord is on sale now in NZ from local dealers.

V6 Accord VL                     $56,600
