2018 Accord Hybrid Review

 

Hybrid cars provide you with a smooth and reliable ride that lets you go farther with fewer stops at the pump. So, what can a hybrid motor do for an already-dependable midsize sedan like the Honda Accord? Honda of Princeton finds out for drivers in Flemington and Hamilton with this 2018 Accord Hybrid review.

2018 Honda Accord Hybrid Performance

The 2018 Accord Hybrid is able to achieve great fuel economy for you by running on a two-motor hybrid powertrain. Now in its third generation, it's powered by a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine and an AC Synchronous Permanent Magnet Electric Motor. Together, they can give you up to 212 horsepower.

Along with this hybrid engine, there's a Lithium-Ion Battery and an Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission (E-CVT) with Sport Mode and Deceleration Selectors.

With the hybrid powertrain and intelligent E-CVT giving you smarter and more precise shifting, the Honda Accord Hybrid can get up to an EPA-estimated 47 MPG¹ for both city and highway. Pair that with its 12.8-gallon fuel tank, and you'll be able to go further before you have to stop for gas!

2018 Honda Accord Hybrid Infotainment  

During your drive, the 2018 Accord Hybrid helps you stay informed through an 8-inch Display Audio Touchscreen. This serves as the home for your infotainment system and as your Energy Management System Display, by showing you real time energy flow between the two motors.

You'll also be able to access the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™. It makes getting to your destination easy with voice recognition.

When you need to back up, the screen helps you out there, too. Just shift into reverse and the Multi-Angle Rearview Camera will show you a live video feed of what's behind you. Plus, guidelines can show you what path you're on.

During your drive, you can connect your smartphone via Bluetooth® to stream your music through Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™. Your phone will also keep you connected at all times with a mobile hotspot and a wireless phone charger.

2018 Honda Accord Hybrid Safety

The technology in the 2018 Accord Hybrid can keep you safe, too. With the Honda Sensing® suite of driver assistance features, you'll have greater awareness of what's around you. It helps prevent accidents with technology like:

·        Collision Mitigation Braking System™

·        Road Departure Mitigation System

·        Lane Keeping Assist

·        Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow

·        Traffic Sign Recognition

On top of Honda Sensing®, there's safety built in with a smart airbag system and the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure. This design helps the frame absorb force from a collision and redistribute it away from the passenger area.

Together, Honda Sensing® and the ACE™ body structure have helped this fuel-efficient sedan earn a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)² and be named a 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)³.
