Introducing “The Accord of Hybrids.” The remarkably innovative and incredibly fuel efficient new 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid takes everything you love about the fantastically popular and award-winning Honda Accord sedan and quite literally “amps up” both performance and fuel economy with all-new hybrid/electric technology.

Fuel Efficiency By The Numbers

Let’s get right to the point. The new Accord Hybrid’s fuel economy is not just impressive, it’s amazing. Imagine getting an EPA-estimated 47 mpg in the city and a whopping 49 mpg on the highway? Suddenly those frequent stops at the pump are virtually a thing of the past. Of course, you can always pull into the gas station for some snacks to fuel your hunger, not your Accord.

So, just what is the engineering wizardry that makes the new 2017 Accord Hybrid on of the most fuel-efficient four-door sedans out there? Let’s take a look behind the curtain and find out!

Electrifying Performance

Proving its leadership in hybrid/electric technology, Honda debuts its new two-motor, Earth Dreams system in the new 2017 Accord Hybrid an industry first. The system uses one 135 kW electric motor making the equivalent of 181 horsepower to power the wheels, letting you accelerate from a dead stop on pure electric power alone. The second motor both starts the engine and charges the first motor.

The Accord can operate solely on electric power up to 40 mph. Above that threshold and for highway cruising, the Accord’s fuel-efficient, 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder engine takes over, providing seamless performance between electric, blended electric/gasoline, and pure gasoline power without you even noticing the difference. Hit the “Sport” button below the shift knob and both electric motors harmonize with the Accord’s Earth Dreams i-VTEC engine for even more exhilarating acceleration.

The new Accord Hybrid shares the same underpinnings as the conventionally powered Accord sedan. This means you can expect the same refined, responsive, and agile driving experience that makes the Accord a top-seller.

Ultramodern Style

And you’ll be pleased to know that the new 2017 Accord Hybrid also has the same handsome good looks and contemporary attitude as its stylish Accord siblings. After all, why mess with a good thing? The Accord Hybrid does get its own subtle treatments to the grille, headlights, and taillights, as well as unique Hybrid badging.

Otherwise, this is one Hybrid that’s proudly part of the Accord family. And that means you’ll find the same crisp lines, ultramodern available LED headlights, sporty lower fascia, and a sleek silhouette that makes the Accord one of the best-looking four-door sedans on the road.

Superbly Crafted Interior

This same philosophy holds true for the Accord Hybrid’s spacious, quiet, and remarkably sophisticated interior that it also shares with other Accord models. Slip behind the wheel of the new Accord Hybrid and survey a landscape of punctuated by superbly crafted materials, brushed chrome, wood tone, and piano black trim, premium materials, and a zealous attention to detail. Creature comforts are in abundance, including high-quality available leather seats, dual climate control, standard 10-way adjustable power seats with two-position memory, available heated front and outboard rear seats, and ample head and legroom for up to 5 passengers.

Innovative Technology

A vehicle this advanced demands the latest technology, and the Honda Accord Hybrid delivers. Let’s start with the cleverly designed instrumentation. Placed inside an oversized speedometer is a clever multi-information display that conveys different vehicle functions at a glance. An intelligent key fob not only lets you start your Accord with a touch of a button, but it will also even let you precool the cabin on the scorching Arizona days. And convenient steering wheel-mounted buttons let you control a variety of functions simply and easily.

Also, the Accord moves tech forward with an available large touchscreen display, Bluetooth® Streaming Audio with Pandora, available SiriusXM® Radio, voice-activated, hands-free calling, and turn-by-turn navigation. Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ offer an array of smartphone-related functions that turn the Accord’s display audio screen into virtual clones of your devices. And HondaLink® also lets you seamlessly integrate your compatible mobile device, as well as do many other tricks, such as scheduling service appointments, and much more.

Cutting-Edge Safety Features

Last, but most certainly not least, the new Accord Hybrid features some of the most cutting-edge safety features you’ll find on any modern vehicle. First of all, there’s the Accord’s exclusive ACE™ Body Structure. The way the body cage absorbs and distributes the impact of a frontal collision helps keep passengers safe. Then there’s the Accord’s available, exclusive Honda Sensing® safety package. 

Honda Sensing uses a variety of advanced safety technology, such as radar, to help prevent accidents before they happen. These key features include Road Departure Mitigation, Forward-Collision Warning. Lake Keeping Assist, Lane Departure Warning, and Adaptive Cruise Control. Plus, all Hondas come with a rear backup camera, standard. So it’s not surprising that the Accord achieves top safety ratings from both the IIHS and the NHTSA.

Legendary Reliability & Quality

Best of all, the new 2017 Honda Accord comes from a long line of some of the most reliable vehicles on the market.  In fact, a recent automotive survey by IHS-Polk reveals that 78% of all Hondas built in the last 25 years are still on the road today. No wonder Honda’s dependability is legendary. Plus, we’re proud to say the Honda Accord has been named a Car And Driver Magazine “10Best” a record 30 times! That’s an achievement few other vehicles can match.

Three Well-Equipped Choices

Even in standard trim, the 2017 Accord Hybrid is loaded with such standard features as Honda Sensing, remote engine start, and 10-way driver’s seat. Move up to the EX-L and Touring models for the ultimate package of options and features.
