There was a good reason Honda took a year off with the Accord Hybrid model. Now back from its hiatus, the all-new 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid has some updated features and improvements that are surely going to impress.
Better Fuel Efficiency
The new Accord Hybrid is exceptionally efficient and received an EPA rating of 49 mpg city and 47 mpg highway. These figures give it the best ratings in its class of mid-size hybrid sedans.
With the amazing efficiency comes improved overall performance. Inside the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, giving it an output of 212 horsepower, which is an increase from the 2015 model (which peaked at 196 horsepower).
Updated Technology and Safety
The new Accord Hybrid is compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, making it incredibly easy to stay connected while driving. There are also new safety features that come standard on the updated model, including Active Cruise Control, which generates a safe distance between you and the vehicle in front of you.
We are very pleased to have this hybrid vehicle back in our lineup and we look forward to seeing it continue to improve in the future. Stop by Floyd Taylor Honda for more information and to test drive the all-new 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid.
The Honda Accord is due for a mid-cycle facelift for 2016, and while there are a few minor adjustments to the exterior, most of the new goodies are on the inside. That’s to be expected, though – current sales numbers say Honda sells over 300,000 Accords a year, so there’s no need to fix what isn’t broken. Most of the changes were made to the 2016 Honda Accord technology.
The exterior changes include minor details such as an additional accent strip along the nose and narrower headlights. To give the 2016 Accord a more modern look, LED fog lamps and taillights were added, plus a newly remolded rear and 18-inch alloy wheels.
However, technology updates include a brand new entertainment system. The system offers a USB port that allows you to easily sync your smartphone. Both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are compatible. To top it all off, the menu is accessible via a 7-inch touchscreen display. Other new technology features are more safety-oriented. Driver Assist tech such as emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane departure warning come standard with the new Accord.
The ongoing success of the Accord is nothing to scoff at, and the 2016 Honda Accord technology update updates to keep the car up-to-date and modern will ensure that it continues its popularity will continue into the next model year.
