2014 Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

We purchased a new 2014 Honda accord hybrid electric in april. The car is a dream to drive. In full electric mode it goes 16 miles before the hybrid kicks in. since my wife drives 12 miles to work and recharges on 110v at work, she ave over 199 miles in electric mode. overall in electric and hybrid in the city it ave over 68mph. Only when you have to drive on frwy does it ave in the high 48mph. Ride and comfort are fabulous. like driving a luxury sedan. give it a 9.5 out of 10 rating. Best on the market.


Favorite Features

Quiet and smooth in electric mode. Camera on passenger side for seeing blind spot. Heated seats for all passengers front and rear. Tracks mileage as you drive for better understanding of driving style. quick acceleration. lane change alert when blinker is not used. Auto braking and alarm when car in front suddenly slows down. instantly lights up dash area to alert driver to situation.


Suggested Improvements

note: does not come with satellite radio. the electric cord does not swivel therefore in some charge stations hard to keep plugged in. the other electric cords which are all designed similar rotate the plug so that it can be in either position ie the ground up or down dependent upon the charge station. trunk area would be issue for a family if traveling as batteries are between back seat and trunk. needs to have some sound effects as it is so quiet even bicyclist don't hear you coming. rear backup has camera but doesn't again have any noise to alert someone in way. would make is a 10 our of 10 if some changes were made.

2014 Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

Test drove 1 - awesome driving experience. Great ride, perhaps better than the standard CVT or Sport model. Good acceleration, easy freeway merging, ultra quiet and smooth. The styling, is mixed. The front end looks much better in person. Unfortunately, wheel covers were disappointing. While they don't look too bad, a wheel cover, especially on a $40K+ car regardless of the slight aerodynamic advantage, is not right. Seems like Honda could have done better. The trunk space is very small as well. Specs have it as slightly more than the Fusion Energi, but both are quite small for a midsize sedan. No optional leather or color options is irksome given the $$$.


Favorite Features

Ride and driving experience are awesome - so smooth and quiet. Great dash and controls, lots of safety features, superior fit and finish for interior.


Suggested Improvements

Leather option, more interior and exterior colors, proper wheels, redesign battery for greater trunk space,
