The Honda Accord is one of the oldest models on the Honda lineup, but its Hybrid counterpart has been establishing quite the legacy for itself as well. It’s been around for fifteen years now, having first been introduced in 2005. Now, the 2021 Honda Accord Hybrid has undergone a ton of enhancements and updates before becoming available here in the Lima OH area. It makes an excellent option for any shoppers looking for a hybrid vehicle in the midsize sedan segment, offering a nice blend of power and hybrid efficiency plus everything else you’ve come to expect from a Honda vehicle.
For the 2021 model year, Honda engineers put the Accord Hybrid through the ringer, introducing a host of upgrades and enhancements before releasing it to the public. The two-motor hybrid system that underpins it, for instance, was updated to provide an even more direct throttle response which translates to delivering a more natural feeling as you accelerate. The Accord Hybrid continues to deliver 212 horsepower alongside 232 pound-feet of torque, achieving 48 miles per gallon combined* across city and highway driving to boot.
Thanks to features like the unique way the two-motor hybrid powertrain is set up and its brake-by-wire technology, the Accord Hybrid offers a much smoother driving experience and improved braking. The Accord Hybrid is even capable of seamlessly switching between its three modes – EV Drive, Hybrid Drive and Engine Drive – without any input from the driver. It simply adjusts according to driving conditions, though you are able to further enhance efficiency or power by adjusting your own modes – Sport, EV and ECON.
In addition to the minor adjustments to the hybrid powertrain, the Accord Hybrid underwent the same aesthetic upgrades as the traditional Accord Sedan, plus a few exclusive upgrades of its own. Those include an H-mark on the grille, Hybrid badges on the trunk lid and front fenders and a new set of 19” wheels.
