Honda offers the 2024 Accord Hybrid in four trims: Sport, EX-L, Sport-L, and Touring. Under the hood is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine united with two electric motors; this powerplant creates 204 combined horsepower. All Accord Hybrids come with front-wheel drive and a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Honda has also made adjustments to the suspension system for an enhanced ride.
But it’s no surprise that fuel efficiency is this car’s hallmark. The EX-L grabs everyone’s attention with an EPA-estimated rating of 51 mpg around town and 44 mpg on the open highway. The other trims (Sport, Sport-L, and Touring) carry an EPA rating of 46 city/41 highway.
The Sport may be the base trim, but it’s filled to the brim with standard features, such as dual-zone automatic climate control, a one-touch power moonroof with tilt, two USB ports, a 12-volt power outlet, a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with two-way lumbar support, a 60/40-split fold-down rear seatback with a center armrest, LED headlights, LED taillights, gloss-black power side mirrors with LED turn-signal indicators, and 19-inch alloy wheels.
The EX-L adds a third USB port, heated front seats, a four-way power-adjustable front passenger seat, leather upholstery, body-colored heated power side mirrors with LED turn indicators, and 17-inch pewter alloy wheels. The Sport-L’s style changes slightly with the 19-inch matte-black alloy wheels and the same matching gloss black power side mirrors found on the Sport. Holding nothing back, the Touring has a 6-inch head-up display, heated rear outboard seats, heated and ventilated front seats, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and body-colored heated power side mirrors with integrated LED turn indicators.
All Accord Hybrids receive the propriety Honda Sensing package of up-to-the-minute driver-assist technologies. This bundle includes forward collision warning, automated emergency braking, lane departure warning, traffic jam assist, adaptive cruise control, auto high-beam headlights, blind-spot monitoring, cross-traffic monitoring, a driver attention monitor, and traffic sign recognition. The EX-L and Touring have parking sensors, with the Touring getting standard low-speed braking control as well.
The Accord Hybrid has a standard 8-speaker audio system, a 12.3-inch color touchscreen infotainment display, Bluetooth, Alexa, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. The Accord Hybrid Touring is the first Honda to get a Google built-in infotainment array, which includes Google Assistant and Google Maps. This top-of-the-line trim also has HD Radio and a 12-speaker premium Bose sound system with a subwoofer.
