The 2018 Honda Accord is all new, more upscale and more refined
2018 Honda Accord Hybrid EX Hybrid
The Accord Hybrid is expected in early 2018, beginning its third generation. Honda's hybrid system is different than the others, using its internal combustion engine to power a generator that feeds two 181-hp electric motors that power the wheels. The engine is a 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder making 143 horsepower, to make a total horsepower of 212 when combined with the electric motors. Compact batteries are relocated under the seat. We've had some seat time in prototypes, and the powerplant felt seamless. Touring offers heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats, a head-up display, navigation, wireless cellphone charging and one-touch Bluetooth connectivity, and paddle shifters.
