The Honda Accord Hybrid may not be a gas-electric institution like the Toyota Prius, but for many buyers that's also the point. It looks, drives and behaves like every other Accord with the added benefit of boasting the best fuel economy of them all, which in turn makes it easy on the wallet when it's time to fill up and delivers outstanding resale value when it's time to sell.
The 2017 Accord Hybrid achieves up to 48 mpg combined thanks to its combination of a 4-cylinder gasoline engine, electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack. The way the car manages and distributes its 212 horsepower is extremely complex, but driving and operating the vehicle is not. With the Accord Hybrid, you never need to worry about finding a charging station or running out of battery power and becoming stranded.
Just like a conventional Accord, so long as there is gasoline in the fuel tank, the Hybrid will happily take you on your way. And as with the rest of the Accord lineup, the Hybrid benefits from a recent model-year revamp composed of stylish new interior and exterior design touches, additional safety features, improved driving manners, and an upgraded infotainment system featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
All this adds up to a family sedan that offers the best of all Accord traits -- comfort, convenience, easy driving manners and newfound style -- in a package that makes attaining nearly 50 mpg as simple as getting in and driving away.
