HondaThere can be quite a few reasons to drive home a 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid from a Tri-State Honda Dealer, but everyone we talk with who wants to add this Accord to their garage has at least one answer in common: fuel efficiency. The 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid earns an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 50 mpg city,* but there are many other reasons this car has found so many fans among Eastern Kentucky, Southern Ohio, and West Virginia drivers.

Three Trim Levels

In previous model years, drivers just had the one Accord Hybrid to choose from, but the hybrid version of the 2015 Honda Accord can be found with three different trims:

  • The base Accord Hybrid features 196 total system horsepower from its hybrid engine and an electronic continuously variable transmission as well as features like Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, a rearview camera, a touchscreen infotainment system, push-button start, and Honda LaneWatch.
  • Upgrading to the Accord Hybrid EX-L adds on lane departure warning, forward collision warning, a multi-angle rearview camera, a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a one-touch power moonroof, leather upholstery, heated front seating, and more.
  • The top-of-the-line Accord Hybrid Touring features a satellite-linked navigation system with voice controls, adaptive cruise control, the HomeLink remote system, illuminated steering wheel-mounted controls, and an automatic dimming rearview mirror.

State-of-the-Art Engine

So what is it that lets the 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid earn that kind of gas mileage? Well, aerodynamic enhancements like a decklid spoiler and underbody improvements help the Accord Hybrid cut through the air more efficiently, the Earth Dreams engine and electronic CVT help get the most out of every drop of fuel, and regenerative braking helps make the Accord more efficient by taking your car’s braking energy and sending it straight to the battery.

The engine even knows how to drive under certain circumstances, using electric power when idling/braking, engine drive while cruising, and hybrid drive mode when accelerating.
