2017 Honda Accord Hybrid – The Classic Sedan, Now a Hybrid
If you’re in the market for a hybrid sedan, you may be reluctant on certain models because of their lack of history. Since hybrids became commonplace, carmakers have generally created a new hybrid-only make on a totally new platform. With the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid, you can avoid that hesitation since the Honda Accord platform has been honed by decades on the roads and feedback from drivers. The hybrid powertrain in the new Honda Accord Hybrid combines traditional internal combustion with an electric motor charged by the car’s motion that powers the car at slow speeds. This revolutionary car drastically cuts down on fuel use while still delivering the performance and comfort you would expect from a Honda Accord.
The 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid is an incredible everyday car. It offers everything the standard Accord does, plus a lot more on top. To test drive one, visit Surprise Honda in Surprise, AZ.

2017 Honda Accord Hybrid Sedan Styling & Interior Features
From the outside, the hybrid version looks just like every other Accord. There’s not a lot to differentiate it visually from the non-hybrid Accord, but that’s not a bad thing now is it? After all, the Accord has been named among the best-looking midsize sedans by many critics, so it’s no wonder Honda decided to leave the car as is. The subtle styling really sets the stage for the car’s character. This is a car that benefits from understated, elegant looks, and it does a wonderful job achieving that. It’s sophisticated and modern, with a hint of styling cues that pay tribute to Accords of old. The style of the headlights for instance, is the same as all previous generations of the Accord, finished in a much more modern fashion of course. The interior is about as modern as an interior can be. The materials are plush, soft to the touch and there are no harsh plastics in sight. The infotainment system is up there with the best of them, and one can only hope that a road trip comes soon. The cabin is an excellent place to spend hours upon hours in, covering hundreds of miles at a time.

2017 Honda Accord Hybrid Specs
The 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid is powered by a gasoline 2-liter four-cylinder engine and a pair of electric motors, fed by a trunk-mounted lithium-ion battery pack. Combined power output stands at 212 horsepower. There’s a smooth CVT in the middle of the car sending that power to the driven wheels, with minimal power loss. The sprint from 0-60 mph takes just over seven seconds, making the Accord Hybrid one of the fastest sedan hybrids on the market. It’s just as nimble as agile as before, as the extra weight from the battery is mounted so low you can’t even feel it. It corners flat, despite the batteries and the electric motors. One benefit of them, among the added efficiency, is the instant power and torque delivery. There’s no waiting for a turbo to spool up, you just press the accelerator pedal and the Accord goes.
