Honda reveals details for the upcoming Accord Hybrid: this one looks promising!
2018 Honda Accord Hybrid arrives on March, 23rd and will make everything possible in order to maintain brand's high positions and popularity in the segment. And given that the team offers class-leading power output, plenty of interior space and tons of utility and comfort features, we are keen to give this vehicle the chance it deserves.
In order to be suitable for wider range of buyers, Accord Hybrid will be offered in a total of five trim levels: Hybrid, EX, EX-L, EX-L Navi and Touring. Each one of these will offer extended list of features and all trim levels will come with 17-inch alloy wheels, LED low beam headlights, dual zone climate control, Smart entry with Push-button Start, 7-inch TFT multimedia display and a multi-angle rearview camera.
In terms of drivetrain system, 2018 Accord is geared with third-generation of Honda's well-known hybrid power unit that pairs just fine with a 2.0-liter DOHC i-VTEC Atkinson-cycle inline-4 engine. This bad boy delivers a total of 232lb-ft of torque and neat kick of 212 horsepower. What also caught our attention is the fact that the engineering team has also included a system, called Deceleration Selectors. It is similar to the gearbox paddle shifters and what it does is to allow driver to easily toggle between four levels of regenerative braking performance.
