The 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid Can Regenerate Your Green Values With Style and Fun

Unlike in previous model years, there hasn’t been as long a wait between the debut of the all-new 2018 Accord and the arrival of the 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid. As the year gets going, more of these stylish models will find their way to our showroom in both forms—and subsequently, driveways. But for our New Haven, Hamden, East Haven, and Milford with eco-conscious ambitions, the all-new gas-electric model is worth a closer look.

The first variant of the Accord to come with hybrid power was back in 2005, and was available for three years before it took a six-year break. Returning in 2014 and updated in 2016 with the powertrain found in the current model, it’s known to split the difference between the gas-powered version’s fun factor, but with even better efficiency. But where the engine of the 2018 Accord Hybrid may feel similar to the outgoing model on the road, the benefits of the car’s generational update sit front and center elevate the experience.

First off, the 2018 Accord Hybrid boasts the same coupe-inspired shape as both the 2018 Civic and it’s own petrol version. In fact, there’s nothing save for unique rims to set it apart as an eco-friendly model. Instead, this fuel-sipping sedan puts its best foot forward in the “premium-feelings” department with standard LED low beam headlights on either side of a handsome chrome grille, the Honda Sensing safety suite, and a digital instrument cluster. Available equipment such as leather upholstery, a heads-up display, and other amenities also contribute to the 2018 Accord Hybrid’s enticing nature.

Anyone with experience driving hybrids might think the buck stops there, but that’s far from the case. Standard in every model is a 2.0-liter inline-four engine mated to an electric motor for a total output of 212 horsepower and 232 lb-ft of torque. Along with adjustable regenerative braking between four levels to recuperate energy, a sport mode for more spirited driving, and suspension tuned for a lively-yet-comfortable ride, the 2018 Accord Hybrid represents a green-friendly prospect that our customers won’t want to miss.

If that’s your angle, then scheduling a test drive with our Honda dealership in Branford, CT is the best way to experience the 2018 Accord Hybrid for yourself! Take some time to browse our new inventory to locate a model that speaks to you, and drop us a line to set up your appointment.
