Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.
You can interpret our ratings in the following way:
5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.
4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.
3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.
2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.
1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.
2019 Honda Accord Hybrid OVERVIEW
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.

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.
