The 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid comes back for more
The new and upgraded 2017 Honda Accord will receive the visual treatment that’s been making the Honda lineup ever so popular. The lines are slightly sportier and less serious than they used to be. New for this year, and just like the reintroduced Ridgeline and the new generation Civic, the Accord also receives the next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure, or ACE.
Under the hood, the 2017 Accord receives a second-generation two-motor hybrid system with a 2.0L Atkinson cycle engine producing 212 hp, a 16-hp increase over the 2015 Accord hybrid. This also makes the Accord the most powerful hybrid sedan currently on the market. Paired with a CVT, the powertrain is expected to average a combined 5.0L/100km. Thanks to the electronic transmission, the car is expected to make a smooth transition from full electric mode to gas power. The car will go through three different driving modes; EV Drive, which uses the lithium-ion battery only, Hybrid Drive, which involves the gas engine that creates the energy to feed the battery that in return propels the car and finally, the Engine Drive that uses a lock-up clutch, allowing the gas and electric engine to pair up to propel the vehicle.
Brand new features for the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid
The returning Honda Accord hybrid will also receive, like every other Honda family member, a flight of safety features and technologies. It will among other things, receive the Honda Sensing Suite, a package of safety features that includes adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, collision mitigation braking system, forward collision warning, lane departure warning and road departure mitigation. Thanks to these active technologies and to its new ACE structure, the 2017 Accord is expected to receive its five-star safety and top safety pick ratings from the NHTSA and the IIHS.
On the inside of the mid-size hybrid sedan, available in two trim levels, passengers and driver will find comfort with features such as heated front and rear seats, a wireless charging mat, keyless entry with pushbutton start, HandsFreeLink Bluetooth connectivity, wheel-mounted controls, navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for an improved smartphone integration, active noise cancellation and much more.
