Article by Christian Andrei, on October 31, 2011

Nick Campolucci has been named Head of its Dealer Development operations at Honda (UK). He will be responsible for the company's three product lineups: Power Equipment, Motorcycles and Cars. He will be replacing Phil Crossman, who becomes the General Manager of the Cars range. Campolucci's previous position was in Honda Motorcycles where he was responsible for the sales operation. He has been instrumental in producing the networks retailing practices and in regaining Honda's number one spot in the UK market.

He has been serving the company for more than a decade. Prior to joining the company, he was with Goodyear, growing their dealer partner and franchisee network under the "Hi-Q" brand.

Dave Hodgetts, Honda UK Managing Director, commented that the following years are "going to see an exciting and successful time" for Honda and its dealer partners. He also said that Campolucci will be leading the way in creating strong, profitable dealerships which will offer Honda services and products in order to satisfy changing customer needs and routes to market.

Honda Accord once again evolves with its new 2011 model, showing more exterior and interior refinement, fuel efficiency and notable feature expansion. This was announced by Erik Berkman, vice president of Corporate Planning and Logistics for American Honda Motor Co., Inc., who added that the 2011 Accord has been tailored to exceed the most important needs and expectations of coupe and sedan drivers, thus continuing the remarkable Accord ownership experience.

Enhanced streamlining, reduced engine friction, and improved transmission gear ratios result in the new Accord’s markedly improved fuel efficiency. The 4-cylinder automatic sedan version shows a fuel-economy rating of 23/34 mpg city/highway, due to improvements of 2 mpg city and 3 mpg highway.

The 2011 Honda Accord Sedan's body shell exudes more class and power, with a redesigned front grille, front fender, rear boot lid and wheels.

Accord Coupe adapts the same design character as the sedan, but with a more robust stance. Design updates include the striking front grille, new front fender shape and restyled brake lights, as well as new wheels on the V6 versions.

With an ideal combination of sophistication and value, the Honda Accord SE Sedan also implements features seen on the successful Honda Accord LX-P and enhances it with the exclusivity of leather-trimming on the heated seats and steering wheel, as well as driver seat power-lumbar support.

Selected models will also show new features. For example, the Honda Accord EX-L V6 Coupe has steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, while the EX and EX-L sedans and all coupe versions feature a USB Audio Interface.

Meanwhile, sedans with the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System also have a rear-view camera. Furthermore, the EX-L V6 models feature a driver’s seat with two-position memory system. Other cabin furnishing modifications include new seat fabric upholsteries on versions with cloth seats, a redesigned instrument panel and more polished design accents throughout.
