The Honda Accord Hybrid has been honored with one of the 2019 Wards 10 Best Engines Award. The award was based on the 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid but the 2019 Honda Accord Hybrid as well as the 2019 Honda Insight utilize the same hybrid powertrain for an excellent and fuel efficient performance on the road.
About the Honda Accord Hybrid
Wards calls the Honda Accord “one smooth operator, delivering power and torque in such a seamless fashion that it may have you asking, ‘Is this really a hybrid?’” The Accord Hybrid shakes off what many drivers have come to expect from a hybrid—a heavy rear from the battery pack, a sluggish transition from the gasoline engine to motorized power, and a smaller trunk. The Accord Hybrid moves the battery from the trunk to under the rear seats, which helps with weight distribution and doesn’t take up valuable trunk space. The Accord Hybrid also uses a propulsion system that shifts quickly and seamlessly between electric, hybrid, and engine power. The system can also at times work as an EV, or a purely electric vehicle, for an even better fuel economy performance.
The 2019 Honda Accord Hybrid earns an impressive fuel economy. It’s not only a better choice for the environment, it also allows drivers to make less frequent visits to the gas station, saving money along the way. The 2019 Honda Accord Hybrid earns an estimated 48 city / 48 highway / 48 combined mpg*.
The Honda Accord Hybrid features agile handling and quick acceleration, which makes tricky driving situations (from merging to passing) much easier, and puts the driver in control. The inline-4 engine, when considered alone, produces up to 143 hp and 129 lb-ft of torque. The AC Synchronous Permanent Magnet Electric Motor earns 181 hp and 232 lb-ft of torque. Altogether, the total hybrid system horsepower is rated at 212.
