If an affordable hybrid sedan is on your wish list, the 2019 Honda Accord Hybrid is worth look. Offered in four trims, the recently redesigned Accord Hybrid offers consumers fuel-efficiency, standard technology, and driver-assist safety features for a surprising entry-level price. With the diversity of trims, and its amazing 48 miles per gallon capability, the Accord Hybrid would make an exceptional daily-driver for those combating the urban jungle.
What's New for 2019
The Honda Accord Hybrid is mainly unchanged for 2019. However, the Hybrid EX-L Navi trim level is gone.
Choosing Your Honda Accord Hybrid
Consumers looking to purchase a 2019 Honda Accord Hybrid will have four trims to choose from: the base Hybrid, Hybrid EX, Hybrid EX-L, and the Hybrid Touring. Each Accord Hybrid receives its power from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine paired to an electronically continuously variable transmission (E-CVT) along with a pair of electric motors. One of the electric motors is used for propulsion while the other assists in starting the hybrid powerplant. The hybrid system produces a combined 212 horsepower and 232 pound-feet of torque. Obviously, the most appealing attribute of the 2019 Honda Accord Hybrid is fuel-efficiency – it returns an EPA-estimated 48 miles per gallon city, 48 mpg highway, and 48 combined.
Each Accord Hybrid receives the Honda Sensing suite of advanced driver-assist technology that includes lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, automatic high beams, and a traffic sign recognition system.
Compared to other mid-size sedan hybrids, the 2019 Honda Accord Hybrid is a worthy candidate. With standard Honda Sensing driver-assisted safety features, consumers can choose a trim level that provides them with features that fit their needs and budget fairly easily. For the money, the top-of-the-line Touring is a very good buy.
