The Accord Hybrid represents a different take on hybrid technology. Instead of matching its electric motor to a fuel-efficient four-cylinder engine, as with the Civic Hybrid, and the Camry and upcoming Altima hybrids, the Accord Hybrid has its electric-assist motor teamed to a powerful 3.0-liter V6 engine. Although actually quicker than its gasoline-powered counterpart, the Accord Hybrid's lofty price tag and mid-range fuel economy figures can make it a tough sell. Wise consumers will notice that, compared to the Accord Hybrid, the four-cylinder Accord earns similar EPA mileage ratings yet costs about ten grand less. Conversely, the Camry Hybrid earns far better EPA city fuel economy ratings (40 miles per gallon versus 28 miles per gallon) and costs some $5,000 less.
