After a yearlong hiatus so that Honda could move its production from Ohio to Japan, the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid is back and better than ever. If you're looking for a well-appointed, sporty hybrid sedan, the Accord Hybrid should be at the top of your list.
During its year off the market, the Honda Accord Hybrid received numerous updates, some of which Honda also made to the regular Accord in 2016. These include new interior and exterior features and modified suspension tuning.
The 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid is a front-wheel-drive, four-door midsize sedan. It's powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, matched with a pair of electric motors that are powered by a lithium-ion battery pack mounted in the trunk. Horsepower output for the hybrid comes in at 212, provided through a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).
The electric motor and gasoline engine in the Accord Hybrid partner well, delivering quick acceleration and the best fuel economy in its class. Although we haven't yet tested the Accord Hybrid at the track, our educated guess is that it would go from 0 to 60 mph in a bit over 7 seconds. It gets an EPA-estimated 48 mpg combined (49 city/47 highway).
The 2017 Accord Hybrid sedan comes in three trim levels: base, EX-L and Touring.
Some of the interior components of the Accord Hybrid are determined by trim level, most notably the dashboard. The base trim level has physical audio controls that are upfront and user-friendly, while the two higher trim levels (the EX-L and the Touring) have a touchscreen interface to control audio options, making operation much more complicated than necessary. These controls are made exponentially more difficult when you try to use them while driving. You're better off using the steering wheel controls instead. The infotainment system is still better than those provided by its rivals, but Honda would do the Accord Hybrid a favor by improving it in the future.
The rest of the interior in the Accord Hybrid is simple, high-quality and well designed. The hybrid's interior trim mimics that of the updated 2016 Accord, and visibility is high for all occupants, thanks to a low beltline and slender roof pillars. Travelers in both front and back have plenty of room for legs and shoulders, though the front seats in the Accord Hybrid are not as comfortable as those in other hybrid sedans in its class.
It's no surprise that the new Accord Hybrid is a top pick in its class. If you're shopping for a reliable, responsive hybrid sedan that handles well, let Edmunds help find the best 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid for you.

Review To get the best MPG out of this car, just drive it normally as you would any other car. I'm averaging 46.5 per the computer over the first 2300 miles, but going by my gas fill ups, i'm getting 48.0 MPG driving around in Orange County with a 70/30 highway/city mix. Over my 60 mile daily commute, I've seen a best of ~ 63 MPG in slow I-5 traffic and a worst of 41 MPG driving on the 133/241 toll roads through the mountains, low 50s are very common. It can average ~60 MPG if driven at 55 - 60 mph over mostly flat, smooth roads. Bumpy/rough roads seem to lower the mileage significantly. ECON mode also lowers MPG, yes lowers! The power delivery is strong and linear, car is very responsive (esp in Sport mode) the car is also very quiet on the highway (except when going uphill) with hardly any wind/tire noise. Handling is crisp, nimble and secure for my driving style, ride is comfortable but slightly on the stiff side - the chassis has a solid, well integrated feel. Braking feels a tiny bit weaker than my excellent 2016 CR-V but very normal. To maximize engine efficiency Honda seems to have cleverly programmed it to rev the engine up/down constantly instead of keeping it a steady light load (bad for efficiency) - whenever the engine runs it's mostly under higher-loads and wider throttle - any excess energy is stored in the battery for later use when cruising. Also they smartly use battery power to cruise rather than accelerate - that way the battery energy logs more miles - the engine does the acceleration duties because it can do so with higher efficiency. Therefore, to maximize MPG, I accelerate to cruising speed quickly using the engine and then stay in EV while cruising. I've seen better MPG if I climb uphill stretches briskly spending the battery and then coast downhill to recover the energy. The AC controls are very frustrating - no knobs, no touch bumps - so you have to take your eyes off the road to set fan speed or vent direction (a very inconsiderate design decision by Honda's engineers), also the vent direction control display scrolls from right to left as you keep pressing the button, instead of left to right as you'd intuitively expect it (again thoughtless decision by Honda's engineers). This is my only negative so far. I am very happy with this car. Oh and yes the trip computer consistently underestimates MPG by ~ 1.3 which was pleasantly surprising.
