The 2023 Honda Accord Hybrid is fully redesigned for the new model year. The Accord Hybrid enters the new year with a chip on its shoulder. It features a more upscale design, a new hybrid powertrain that boasts some impressive fuel economy figures, and high-tech features that you won’t find on the gas-only Accord. Speaking of the regular Accord, that model has also been redesigned for 2023, but it’s covered separately.
Choosing Your Honda Accord Hybrid
Honda offers the Accord Hybrid in four trims: Sport, EX-L, Sport-L, and Touring. Pricing for the Accord Hybrid ranges from $32,440 to $38,435 (prices include destination).
All Accord Hybrid models come with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that’s paired with two electric motors. Combined output is rated at 204 horsepower and 247 pound-feet of torque. The Accord Hybrid comes with front-wheel drive.
The Accord Hybrid is rated to get up to 51 mpg in the city, 44 mpg on the highway, and 48 mpg combined. Those figures are for the EX-L trim. Sport and Touring models have lower fuel economy figures of 46/41/44 mpg (city/hwy/combined).
Passenger and Cargo Capacity
The 2023 Accord Hybrid offers seating for up to five people. Compared to last year, the sedan’s body has grown by 2.8 inches in length, but its wheelbase has remained the same. The Accord Hybrid’s larger size makes it more spacious for passengers, as Honda claims that the 2023 midsize sedan offers the most interior space in the segment. The Accord Hybrid’s figure of 40.8 inches of rear legroom is impressive for the class.
When it comes to cargo capacity, the Accord Hybrid offers up to 16.7 cubic feet of cargo space.
Every Accord Hybrid comes with the automaker’s Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety features. The suite includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, blind spot monitoring, traffic sign recognition, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high-beam assist. The Accord Hybrid also comes standard with Traffic Jam assist that can handle most driving tasks at speeds of up to 45 mph. Unlike the gas-powered Accord, the Accord Hybrid comes with blind spot information with rear cross-traffic alert as standard.
Honda fits the Accord Hybrid with a standard 12.3-inch touchscreen and a 10.2-inch digital instrument cluster. The electrified Accord also comes with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Amazon Alexa compatibility, Bluetooth, front USB ports, and eight audio speakers.
The EX-L adds two extra USB ports for the rear seats. The range-topping Touring trim gets a head-up display, a 12-speaker Bose audio system, and Google built-in.
2023 Honda Accord Hybrid Sport – MSRP From $32,440
The base Accord Hybrid Sport comes with 19-inch wheels, full LED headlights, a self-opening trunk, cloth upholstery, a moonroof, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
2023 Honda Accord Hybrid EX-L – MSRP From $34,085
The EX-L trim steps things up with heated front seats, leather upholstery, parking sensors, a power-adjustable passenger’s seat, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and memory settings for the driver’s seat. Unlike the Sport, the EX-L comes with 17-inch wheels for better fuel economy.
2023 Honda Accord Hybrid Sport-L – MSRP From $34,420
The Sport-L starts off with the Sport’s list of equipment but adds black wheels, a rear diffuser, a black spoiler, heated exterior mirrors, leather upholstery, a moonroof, heated front seats, and power-adjustable front seats.
2023 Honda Accord Hybrid Touring – MSRP From $38,435
Moving up to the Touring trim nets the most luxurious Accord Hybrid. It comes with a head-up display, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, rain-sensing windshield wipers, 19-inch wheels, parking sensors, heated rear seats, ventilated front seats, and a wireless charging pad.
Compare Accord Hybrid Trims Side-By-Side
The 2023 Honda Accord hybrid is well worth the upgrade over the gas-powered Accord, as it comes with far more high-tech features and a more efficient engine. With the Accord Hybrid being an electrified model that focuses on fuel economy, we think the efficient EX-L is the way to go. It may not have the sporty design of the Sport trims, but it comes with a lengthy list of features and extra niceties you won’t find with the base Sport that make it worth the upgrade.
