In 1976, a star was born. That star is today’s award-winning Honda Accord. Its standard 192 horsepower gives you a peppy start on any type of journey, and the EPA-estimated 30 MPG city/38 MPG highway for the LX, EX, and EX-L trims gives you fuel economy ahead of comparable vehicles.1
The Accord dimensions provide you with the most space in the Honda lineup with front and back headroom of 39.5/37.3 inches and front and rear legroom of 42.3/40.4 inches, which means plenty of room for friends and family. The cargo space allows 16.7 cubic feet of storage for sports equipment, luggage, and more.
As for tech features, the Accord brings it. Not every vehicle comes with available Wi-Fi hotspot capability and an available wireless phone charger, but Honda’s focus on keeping drivers connected shows in these available options. In the Honda Accord, discover the Head-Up Display that projects your speed, directions, and other info right on to your windshield.
Honda Accord Hybrid
Many of the same features offered in the traditional Accord mirror those in the Hybrid trim, like the innovative Head-Up Display that helps keep your eyes on the road. Of course, fuel economy differs in the Hybrid and traditional trims, so let’s take a look.
With an EPA-estimated 48 MPG city/47 MPG highway on the Hybrid trim, daily commuters delight in steadily progressing to their destination without making a pit stop.1 Rev that engine and watch it go with the assistance of 212 horsepower!
Although the Honda Civic appears to be the “younger sister” of the Accord, it came out before the Accord in 1972. It gives you up to 174 horsepower to power down the road. Since the Civic measures 182.7 inches in length–nearly 10 inches less than the Accord–it fits itself into tight parking lots and packed city streets.
Sitting in the available 8-way power adjustment driver’s seat, your Civic contains 97.8 cubic feet of passenger volume with 39.3 inches of front headroom and 42.3 inches of front legroom, almost identical to the Accord. If you like to keep cozy, choose the available heated and ventilated seats to upgrade your comfort level.
To view your apps through available Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, use the available 7-inch audio touchscreen. Prepare your playlist, because you will love pumping it through the available 450-watt premium audio system with 10 speakers.
If you want phenomenal fuel efficiency, wow yourself by reading the stats for the hybrid Honda Insight. The LX and EX trims register 55 MPG city/49 MPG highway, which makes pit stops seem like a distant memory.2 It uses a two-motor hybrid system to energize the Insight with two high-voltage batteries that come with an eight-year warranty.
Before you even open your front door, use the standard remote engine start to streamline your mad rush to work. When you get to your office, the available Smart Entry with Walk Away Auto Lock® empowers your key fob to automatically lock or unlock your car, so say goodbye to fishing for keys in your overstuffed bag.
When you travel in changing weather and road conditions, you need the performance the Insight offers. Its drive system shifts between three modes. Mastermind the fuel economy in the ECON mode or use the Sport mode when it’s time to step up the driving prowess. Switch to electric power in the EV mode, which saves energy during short trips.
