Honda, the Japanese car manufacturer, will strengthen its new Accord lineup with the introduction of the Hybrid model during this spring. No doubt that Acord is one of the most qualities sedans in the World for the last 20 years. On the newest pictures, we can see that looks great(see gallery). It comes equipped with a more influential and competent second-generation hybrid engine that offers the highest EPA fuel cutback ratings of any medium-sized hybrid car and delivers the maximum power. With better manufacturing techniques and supplies of hybrid parts, Honda is expecting a considerable increase in sales and is expecting the yearly sales to be in excess of double its earlier top of just below 14,000 cars during 2014. The new 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid will be launched with three trim levels that include Hybrid, Hybrid Touring, and Hybrid EX-L.
Minimum Exterior Changes
The next generation Honda Accord Hybrid is visually almost identical to the modernized 2016 model Accord, which was introduced in 2015. Some of the notable external changes in the new vehicle include some prudent hybrid emblems, blue-accented taillights and headlights, model-explicit aluminum alloy wheels and an aluminum hood. The front fascia of the new vehicle comes equipped with the same grille as that of the earlier Hybrid model.
2017 Honda Accord Hybrid Interior
This time, the new Accord Hybrid 2017 comes with an adequately appointed and well-laid-out cabin that has made it a preferred one in the middle of midsize buyers.
All three trims of the new Hybrid will be offered with individual features. Some of the standard features available in all models include Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, whereas the Display Audio multimedia system will be offered as an option. This time, the cabin comes with a cargo volume of 13.5 cubic feet, which is 0.8 cubic feet more than that of the 2015 model, owing to the compact lithium-ion battery set. This space is sufficiently big to accommodate a couple of large suitcases.
Some of the new standard interior features available with the new Hybrid include remote engine start, a wide angle back view camera, and Honda Sensing system. This new Honda Accord Hybrid 2017 system includes Lane Keeping Assist, Collision Mitigation Braking System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, Road Departure Mitigation and Forward Collision Warning. All upper trims come equipped with a seven-inch Display acoustic touchscreen as standard.
New Honda Accord Hybrid Engine, Gas Mileage
Honda has made the major change only in the powertrain section of its 2017 model. It comes equipped with a four-cylinder i-VTEC Atkinson Cycle petrol-operated power plant with the displacement of 2.0 liters. This power unit offers its performance in combination with two durable motors to offer the combined power output of 212 HP, which is 16 HP more than the power received by the earlier model. This time, the new Hybrid does not use a traditional transmission system. Instead, it comes equipped with three driving modes, such as EV drive mode, Hybrid drive mode, and Engine drive mode, according to the preferences of the driver.
The 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid EV Drive mode gets power from the durable lithium-ion battery set, allowing the new vehicle to be driven solely on electric power for restricted distances with the light load.
The Hybrid Drive mode uses the major electric motor to drive the vehicle, whereas the gas powertrain operates a second motor to replace the power, received from the battery.
The Engine Drive mode exercises a locking clutch to mix the power output of the gasoline engine with the output of the major electric motor to impel the front wheels.
It all makes the new vehicle to offer better fuel economy than the earlier Accord Hybrid. The new model will offer the city mileage of 49 mpg, the highway mileage of 47 mpg and a combined mileage of 48 mpg.
