The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid Sedan offers Style, Fuel Economy and Superior Safety
Right after the introduction of the entirely reconditioned Accord sedan, which was debuted in the 2013 model year, the Honda brand is now presenting the Accord Hybrid sedan, which debuted in 2014.
Much like the original Accord Sedan, the Accord Hybrid offers sophisticated design, with exclusively highlighted hybrid accents. This is also the first hybrid offered by the brand that is assembled in the Marysville, Ohio facility.
This version of the Accord features similar styling of the previous Accord Sedan, as well as the original hybrid badging, blue-accented light lenses and grille, along with a decklid spoiler, an innovative wheel design and LED daytime lights.
The latest Accord Hybrid model will also use the two-motor hybrid powertrain that is also used by the Accord Plug-in, which was offered for sale earlier in the year. The SPORT Hybrid Intelligent Multi Mode Drive powertrain that is used for the Accord Hybrid provides the ability for it to move through a series of three different modes of driving: Engine Drive, Hybrid Drive and EV Drive – which all work together in order to optimize the fuel efficiency of the vehicle.
While in EV Drive the vehicle will use the Honda lithium-ion battery, running only on electric mode while traveling at lower speeds. During medium to high speed driving, the vehicle will use Engine Drive, which sends the power of the engine right to the front wheels. For stop-and-go driving situations, where efficiency is key, the Hybrid Drive is used, which utilizes the 2.0 L DOHC i-VETC Atkinson-cycle four cylinder motor with the 124 kW electric motor.
The Accord Hybrid also features the identical next-generation of Advanced Compatibility Engineering body as the earlier 2013 model, as well as the latest SmartVent front-side airbags being offered by Honda.
The interior cabin of the Accord Hybrid is well-appointed and provides an innovative layout, offering drivers energy flow and fuel economy information, providing efficient driving and performance.
In addition to the innovative features offered for the Accord Hybrid, such as the LaneWatch blind-spot screen, some of the other features that are offered include the Forward Collision Warning, Land Departure Warning, leather trimmed seats, audio system with seven speakers, eight inch i-MD display and a multiple angle rearview camera.
