Five Stars? Yes.
Saul Weinstein, 5/6/2018
Why five stars when not all of the areas above are five stars? Simply, it's the overall car I like so much ( so far, I have only owned and driven if a couple of days ). I drove the Camry, Fusion, and Optima hybrids. None felt as solid as the Accord, although I liked how the Optima drove. But the Accord drives even better IMHO. The CVT makes itself known on long uphill grades but is otherwise unobtrusive and works fine. It's plenty powerful - My ride home 65 miles from the dealer includes a long 6% uphill grade. The only potential comfort issue is getting in and out of the driver's seat - It's a little bit lower than the others and there is a bit of "drop" into the seat and pull up from it. The technology is comprehensive in the Touring ( top of line ) model I bought but from what I read good throughout the line. Touring has about everything you can imagine and lots you didn't that is useful or helpful The head up display is a favorite. The navigation is quick to accept entries and find what I am looking for. My Android phone hooked right up to Bluetooth. The Android and Apple apps for use in the car are both available. The drive is quiet and comfortable. You can use the paddle shifters to decelerate and get extra energy to the battery, especially useful on long downhills although the adaptive cruise control will brake to maintain speed and thus also store energy. The front seats are heated and ventilated, the rear heated. ( No heated steering wheel except in Canada, darnit. ) The automatic high beams work nicely, as I found on a dark highway drive home. I am guessing at some of the Value items as my ownership is short term for now. I am not filing in a mileage as too few miles driven so far to make a good estimate. Just driving home from the dealer, the first 15 miles in traffic and lights, averaged 49 MPG ( city ).
Best value mid size sedan
H-dub, 6/18/2018
Some serious research went into my ultimate decision to buy this car. My previous vehicles were mostly sports sedans (BMW 3, 5 and 6 series) interlaced with a couple of Acuras. After my last appointment for routine maintenance on my 3 series cost me nearly $1,000, I decided I was done with German cars. Furthermore, I was tired of losing a significant amount in depreciation on these BMWs after my typical 3 to 4 years of ownership. My purchase criteria this time was based on reliability, economy, resale value and fun to drive. I also wanted something more substantive than a basic compact car like a civic or corolla. I think the Accord hybrid provides the best combination of those characteristics. Furthermore, the interior has all the elements I consider as luxurious in the Touring trim that I purchased. As for fun to drive, this is definitely not a Prius. It has great low end torque and will accelerate very quickly, either from a stop or on the freeway ramp when I need the pick up (0 to 60 in 6.9 seconds is what I have read). I will never drive this in the ECO mode, but have a blast driving with an occasional heavy foot and still getting 40 mpg. I read in some reviews that the seats are too low and cause back pain. I am a senior that has a herniated disc and have dealt with back issues for the last 30 years. However, I don’t have any issues entering or exiting this vehicle and find the seating comfort to be just fine. The stereo system is fantastic. I also love the safety features that are all customizable to suit my driving style. I also love the brake regenerative paddle shifters that feel like the old days of downshifting to slow down in a manual shift car. Trunk space is huge. Still learning how to take full advantage of the Android Auto program. I do think Honda should have sold this car with a compact spare instead of the inflator kit that is provided. However, I will incur the expense and buy a spare and jack. I really think Honda has done an excellent job with this car and believe this is the best “value” in the mid size car segment.
Wow!!!!! ...and others said it too
Karl Zack, 6/17/2018
I test drove Toyota and Kia Hybrids and was intrigued by the fuel economy but the style was blah. The I drove a Honda Accord Hybrid 2018 Touring and just went "WOW!!!!". First it looks nice and sleek on the outside (with out the Hybrid badge, you'd never know it was a hybrid). When you get in, your sitting in technology. All of the info that can be displayed on the windshield so your eyes still stay on the road. The wireless cell phone charging, The NFC just let me tap my phone on the dash and it married up to my phone. Android auto gives me access to Maps, Waze, pandora, TuneIn Radio,etc. The ventilated seats are so nice to have in the blazing hot Florida sun.I can remote start the car to have it cool off before I get into it.It is extremely quiet when driving (just hear the outside woosh). The different doing modes are so convenient, like to merge into fast 5 o'clock highway traffic, clicking on Sport Mode gives me tons of speed (plants me back into the seat). The paddles on the steering wheels, once I got used to them, are amazing. It is used with the brake regeneration which recharges the battery surprisingly fast. Now I can calculate how to use them when approaching a stop. On my first 100+ mile cruise, I played it light slow acceleration , ac at 76 and a mix of highway and city driving. I got 51 mpg. Next weekend I went the same route in reverse, ac at LOW (which is pretty cold), using sport mode occasionally, and getting unto speed normally from a dead stop. I got 46 mpg. I went one step further and installed 3m Crystalline Tint (look for it on YouTube). The car is literally and figuratively cool.
Traded my Challenger. No Regrets
Jaila, 6/11/2018
I purchased this vehicle because my commute to work puts me at over 70 miles per day. The 19 mpg I was getting from my 2014 Challenger was costing me too much. I bought this car to save on gas, but I actually feel a little guilty saying I like it better than my Challenger. When it comes to style, the Challenger has that old school muscle car appeal that I have always been a big fan of, but the Honda has a style of it's own. It's a modern, aerodynamic design that helps the car fuel efficiency numbers in the upper 40s, and depending on how and where you drive you can even experience numbers in the 50's. I usually get mileage around 49 mpg, but high speed highway miles are going to be a bit worse than that. I took a trip from MD to CO, and experienced mileage around 36mpg while traveling at an average speed around 75mph. That's still great, but not quite the 47+mpg you'll experience at lower speeds. Around town, I've experienced mileage for 20-30 minute trips around 54mpg, but usually 49 is about the best I get. The trip from Baltimore to Denver cost me a little over $100 in fuel costs total. Moving on to the interior, we'll start with the trunk. Trunk space is equivalent to that of the standard Accord due to the batteries being under the back seat. The back seats fold down from inside the trunk, which is a neat security feature. There is a switch inside the glove box to disable the trunk release that essentially turns your trunk into a secure mobile safe. The back seat is comfortable for a 6' tall adult, and there are A/C vents in the back of the center console for the rear passengers. The batteries under the back seat have a vent that needs to remain unrestricted to prevent the batteries from overheating. The Driver seat is power adjustable with two driver settings that go along with numbered key-fobs. The passenger seat adjusts manually, but both are comfortable for long trips. The aesthetics of the cabin are very functional. The faux-wood is very well made and fitted, and adds a touch of class to to the cabin. The unorthodox infotainment system takes a few seconds to get used to, but once you get over the styling you'll love it's futuristic, functional design. The Honda Sense is awesome, and both the advanced Cruise Control and the Lane Keep Assist functions work great. You'll love how the car decreases the stress of driving in traffic as it speeds up, slows, stops and go's pretty much on it's own. The engine and motor are more than adequate to get you going, and I get people off the line all the time with the cruise control enabled, without really even trying. All in all, it's a great car, and I doubt you'll be disappointed.

More about the 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid

Completely redesigned for 2018, the Honda Accord Hybrid is at the top of its game. Like the regular Accord, it features new styling, more interior room and new technology features.

The 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and a pair of electric motors that are powered by a lithium-ion battery pack. This is the same powertrain that the Accord Hybrid was using last year, but the battery has been repackaged to allow for a folding rear seat — which means no sacrifice of cargo space compared to the standard Accord. It also means that horsepower output for the hybrid remains the same at 212 combined horsepower. A continuously variable automatic transmission is standard.

The electric motor and gasoline engine pairing in the Accord Hybrid delivers quick acceleration and some of the best fuel economy in the class. Although we haven't tested the Accord Hybrid at the track yet, our educated guess is that its 0-60 mph time is a bit quicker than 7 seconds. It gets an EPA-estimated 47 mpg combined (47 city/47 highway), which is a small decrease from last year's model with 48 mpg combined.

The 2018 Accord Hybrid sedan comes in five trim levels: base, EX, EX-L, EX-L w/Navi and Touring.

Even the base trim level includes some premium safety features such as forward collision mitigation, lane departure warning with intervention, and a standard rearview camera. The next trim level up, the EX, gets blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert as well as some bundled creature comforts such as the upgraded 8-inch center touchscreen. Previously, we lamented the use of touchscreen-only controls on the Accord's interior, but the 2018 Accord has brought back the use of physical volume knobs, which makes operation much more user-friendly.

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 redesigned 2018 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, especially with the added legroom now made possible by the longer wheelbase.

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 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid for you.
