We recommend

The Honda Accord Hybrid is pretty efficient sedan in itself, it comes standard with all those features you expect from a family sedan. The variants it offers has some additional features but it doesn't really affects its power or performance or safety so go for it if you feel like, otherwise the base model is good enough to fulfill a family sedan requirements.

2017 Honda Accord hybrid Sedan Engine

The 2017 Accord hybrid features an enhanced 2.0L 4 Cylinder engine paired with a CVT automatic transmission and forward-wheel drivetrain. The 212 bhp hybrid engine produces 129 lb.-ft. of torque which is plenty for a family sedan but still needs improvement considering the power it packs and its competitors as well.

The Accord hybrid features the most powerful engine in the whole class but suffers in torque production which really affects its overall performance. The Toyota Camry features is second most powerful hybrid in the class and has some nice torque production.

Acceleration

The Honda Accord Hybrid races from 0-60 mph in 6.9 sec and hit a quarter mile margin in 15.5 sec @88.8 mph, it might not be as good as the Fusion hybrid but it is quite a development for the accord hybrid lineup. The Hybrid system switches automatically between engine and motors and has 3 operating modes, 0-30 mph on only electric, only engine at higher speeds.

The Accord Hybrid being the most powerful is not the best in the class but it sure puts quite a show. The Ford Fusion with only 188 hp powerhouse leads the segment followed by Toyota Camry putting Chevrolet Malibu at last which was pretty much expected.

Handling and Steering

The Honda Accord Hybrid features an Electric power steering and tilt-telescopic steering wheel. It has four wheel independent suspension with front and rear stabilizing bar. All these specs promises easier handling, smooth steering and hassle free journey. It also comes standard with adaptive cruise control, traction control and stability control to stay safe and easy going.

As for the handling, Accord Hybrid handles pretty good for a family sedan, stays stable at high speed and cuts corners smoothly. But in case you are expecting that it goes wild with a push of a button or provides insane acceleration or runs like a horse on a race track you might reconsider your choice.

Braking

The Accord Hybrid features smaller wheels for better fuel efficiency and so it features smaller 11.5/11.1 inch ventilated front/solid rear disc brakes with 4-wheel anti-lock braking system. It takes about 123 ft. to get from 60-0 mph. Well, for a 3483 lbs. vehicle it not bad but not too good as well. Features like emergency braking assist and stability control are also included for safety.

The Ford Fusion and Toyota Camry both takes the lead in this segment whereas the Chevrolet Malibu is again at the last position.
