Fuel Economy That Won’t Disappoint

When you’re behind the wheel of the Honda Accord Hybrid, you’ll get more miles out of every dollar you spend! This year’s Accord gets the same EPA-estimated mileage whether you’re driving in the city, on the highway, or moving between the two. Drivers who take advantage of the Accord Hybrid’s cleverly designed, hard-working standard features will be able to maximize their real-world fuel economy across all three settings. Its innovative driver interface and performance modes give you unparalleled control.

  • Eco Assist System: The Accord Hybrid’s standard Eco Assist System learns how you drive and fine-tunes your powertrain’s behavior to maximize your efficiency. Small changes like these can make a big difference in the long run.
  • 3-Mode Drive System: When you’re behind the wheel of the 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid, you’ll be able to alternate between Normal Mode, Eco Mode, and Sport Mode. Eco Mode limits the contribution of your gas-burning engine to a minimum, so it only comes on when you’re accelerating on the highway. Sport Mode allows your engine to play a more active role, so you’ll get a burst of power whenever you press down on the gas pedal.
  • Energy Management System Display: Every Accord Hybrid comes equipped with a centrally located Energy Management System Display, a high-resolution touch screen that gives you easy access to important information on your vehicle’s performance and power usage.

On its own, this piece of equipment is capable of producing up to 181 hp and generating as much as 232 lb.-ft. of torque—between 0 and 2000 RPM! With access to this much torque at a low RPM, you’ll enjoy superior control and acceleration without compromising fuel economy.
  • In-Line 4-Cylinder Engine: All Hybrid Accords come equipped with a 2.0-Liter In-Line 4-Cylinder Atkinson-Cycle Engine designed with port fuel injection, a drive-by-wire throttle system, and a 16-Valve DOHC VTEC.

  • Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission: An Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission allows the Accord Hybrid to calculate and achieve the most efficient shift points across all settings. Every model comes standard along with Deceleration Selectors which allow you to alter the way that your vehicle recharges on the go.
