2019 Honda Accord hybrid Sedan Complete In-depth Review & Buying Guide

The 10th gen Accord is one of the most dominating sedans in the American market. Honda let go for all senses and make their creativity run wild on this one. Well, it was necessary since Honda dropped the coupe version which was previously in charge of this crazy styling. The same gene runs into the Hybrid version. Taking heat from the crossovers and other electric sedans the Accord hybrid is a well-rounded sedan with a roomy cabin, high economy, and decent cargo space.

So how is the driving experience? The answer is long, but it can be summed up in three words: Pretty darn good."Automobile Magazine 

Engine and Transmission

One reason for Accord’s popularity is its variety in powertrain however, the Hybrid version does not convey the same. You get just one powertrain option of 2.0L Inline-4 engine with lithium-ion battery paired to a CVT transmission. There is no other choice of powertrain on the Hybrid trims. Together the battery and the engine generates 212 horsepower and 232-pound feet of torque.

The Accord might not have options but its only powertrain is enough to beat any other in its league. While other sedans barely achieved the 200 horsepower mark the Accord hit the ball out of the park with its 212 horsepower. Its direct competitors like Ford fusion and Chevrolet Malibu are nowhere near the Accord.

Acceleration

The gas-powered accord might not be jaw-dropping sedan when it comes to acceleration but the Hybrid version is the king of the hill. Other sedans are a way slower than this hybrid sedan. From a stand-still, this sedan dashes off to 60 mph in a class-leading 6.7 seconds. Nailing the accelerator further, the Accord hits the quarter mile in 15.4 seconds.

Ride and Handling

Behind the wheel, the Accord’s electric powered steering is sharp and accurate but the feel is not natural and the little road communication seems like a liability. The top Touring hybrid comes with a lot of perks when it comes to performance, the adaptive suspension turns the tide in the favor of Honda. The sedan becomes more precise and keen to your command.

On the highway the Accord is amusing to drive, merging lanes and overtaking is not a problem for is a compact sedan. Despite its large dimensions Honda takes on the city’s traffic with ease and is quite maneuverable compared to its competitors. Around the corners, the Accord feels composed without any notable body roll.

Braking

Honda’s reliability is possibly its best suit and its braking implies that perfectly. The pedal feel is nice and composed and has a big bite to it. Around the city, the brakes are easy to modulate and predictable for the majority of the time. The front brakes are rated at 11.5 inches and the rear brake rotors are rated at 11.1 inches. From a speed of 70 mph, the Accord takes 163 feet to come to a standstill.

Reliability is Honda’s best suit to attract customers and the Accord the prime example for the same. The brake son the Accord convey the same idea you are always in control of the car. The pedal is firm and maneuverable in the city’s traffic. On hard braking, there is a good bite without any major trebling. The car halts from the speed of 60 mph in 120 feet.

Braking is quite average on the Accord, it's same as other hybrids in the lot. The fusion Energi takes 129 feet, even its own cousin the Insight who is 350 pounds lighter halts at 121 feet, so accomplishing the same on a full-sized Hybrid like Accord is quite a task.

2019 Honda Accord hybrid Sedan Fuel Economy

The Accord has not compromised with efficiency since it was first launched. The tradition continues with this one. The Hybrid continues with the tradition, its 49 mpge fuel economy remains the same on city and highway. The number might intrigue you but as you skim through the table you will find a sedan with better efficiency despite their higher weight.

8.0/10

"Inside, the new Honda Accord manages to pack more refinement, more features and even more room into a sedan that's actually a little shorter than the model it replaces. The design is familiar but elevated, thanks in part to a more liberal application of high-quality materials."- Kelley Blue Book

Seating and Comfort

Accord’s interior is not its main attraction but it contributes to its class-leading persona. The cabin is an amalgamation of upmarket interior elements with a lot of soft-touch materials and a contemporary design. All the features are controlled through physical buttons and knobs, all located in a vicinity to the driver with no puzzling features and menus. The doorsills are higher than the usual height and the wide front and rear door opening are fair for comfortable entry and exit. The cabin is felt large with a lot of options to customize your ideal driving position, though the telescopic steering is limited to a certain level.

The front seats are large and comforting with its 39.5 inches of headroom and 42.3 inches of legroom space. Passengers over 6 ft. will suffer from a limited legroom space resulting in their knees banging on some hard plastic. The rear cabin is superb in terms of legroom as it’s a fair 40.4 inches, however, the headroom is limited for taller boarders.

Infotainment

Honda offers a 7-inch infotainment screen as standard on the Accord. The LCD infotainment screen nicely blends in with the gauge cluster and heads up display on the higher trims. However, you don’t get Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as standard features on the base trim. The screen is responsive with any delay and all the menus and simplified with clean graphics and no baffling features.

Cargo volume

Reliability and Practicality are 2 things the Accord is known for. Honda’s nameplate secures reliability and the generous trunk volume secures the latter. The class leading 16.7 cubic feet of cargo space is excellent. The cabin utility is not far behind, you get sizable door pockets, cubby holes with space for multiple cell phones, a standard glove box, and a big armrest bin. Frankly, there are so many sections that you might not even use in the long run.

"The 2019 Honda Accord is among the best-looking sedans available today."- TheCarConnection

Design and Styling

Possibly the most good looking sedan in the segment, Honda Accord keeps its coupe-like styling alive. Though its younger cousin Civic propels on a similar ideology it’s the Accord who actually pull it off. It built more sporty than its fellow executives in the segment without compromising on practicality. The Sport trim takes things to another level with its chrome exhaust, and decklid spoiler and more. Some trims feature grill shutters on the front fascia to enhance the aerodynamics of the car. A 17 inch allow wheels come standard on the Accord with an option for 19-inch alloy wheels.

Dimensions and Weight

Honda’s engineers sized the Accord at 192.2 inches in total length. The width and height are rated at 17.3 inches and 57 inches respectively. Though it does not make a lot of difference ion paper the Honda Accord is inches longer than its direct competitors like the Optima and Ford Fusion. However, it has a similar 111.4-inch wheelbase.

2019 Honda Accord hybrid Sedan Competition

Ford Fusion Vs Honda Accord

Ford is long known for its heavy-duty commercial vehicles but that doesn’t mean they don’t have a threshold over sedan market. The Ford Fusion is a blend of the upmarket interior, composed ride quality, and a geeky feature list. On the other hand, Accord delivers the same on high intensity. There is not much difference in price but there is a big difference in the power output, Accord can muster 24 more ponies than the fusion. The shoppers favoring efficiency over power can also rest assured, the Accord’s got an edge over there as well.

Toyota Camry vs Honda Accord

Being a fellow Japanese and the Accord’s archenemy, the Toyota Camry matches every bid the Accord makes to its buyer and raises the bar with its better efficiency. The bigger engine is possibly its biggest point of the market as every other brand is focusing on practicality and features. However, the base level Camry can be a little overpriced if compare with the base level Accord.

However, the buyer of mid-sized sedans will look for something more than a barebones. So, as you climb the trim ladder both cars balance out on price. In that case, Toyota is the better choice. 

Chevrolet Malibu vs Honda Accord

The Honda sedan is much more enjoyable to ride, not only in the city but also on highways. It has the perfect blend of performance, economy, utility, and technology. Compared to the Malibu, the Honda not only has a brawnier engine you can also extract longer range from the battery.

The interiors focus on function rather than fancy in both of these sedans. From the outside, the design is equally impressive and completely subjective. Overall, the Honda sits a notch higher than the Chevy in the segment.

2019 Honda Accord hybrid Sedan Final Verdict

Hybrid is still an evolving segment, however, the competition is still stiff. There are many brands flaunting a decent market with their sedan, though the competition does not end there, crossovers put up a great fight too. Still, Honda is going strong with the Accord. It has top of the line power and impressive efficiency numbers which make it a solid choice. Price, on the other hand, makes it even more acquirable.

So, if you are looking for a family sedan and want no harm on the planet then anything below the Accord is a bad deal.
