2018 Honda Accord Hybrid Performance

The 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid offers drivers incredible fuel economy and an impressive performance on the road. It utilizes a gasoline engine and electric motor hybrid system and delivers the power, refinement, and versatility of other gasoline-powered sedans, but with the added benefit of fuel efficiency. Along with a long list of powertrain features and active safety features that boost performance, the 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid is a great option for Milwaukee drivers.

  • Powerful engine and motor hybrid system
  • Impressive fuel economy
  • Active safety features enhance performance


The engine of the Accord Hybrid is a dynamic 2.0L in-line 4-cylinder. It offers drivers quick acceleration which can help with tricky driving situations such as merging or passing. It works in tandem with the electric motor and contributes 143 horsepower and 129 lb-ft of torque to the total system.

Along with the gasoline engine, the Accord Hybrid features an AC Synchronous Permanent Magnet Electric Motor that is powered by a lithium-ion battery. Unlike past models and other hybrids, the motor is no longer housed behind the rear seats but instead is nestled under them. The move frees up valuable cargo space in the trunk which measures 17 cubic feet—the same as non-hybrid Accord models. The electric motor provides the bulk of the horsepower, producing up to 181 horsepower and 232 lb.-ft of torque by itself. Together, the engine and motor hybrid combination achieves a total system horsepower of 212.

Powertrain Features

The remarkable powertrain of the Accord Hybrid has additional features that assist with performance. For starters, HIll Start Assist helps the Accord Hybrid perform better on hills while its eco assist system helps you drive more efficiently.

  • Eco Assist System
  • Hill Start Assist
  • Drive-by-Wire Throttle System
  • Electric Parking Brake with Automatic Brake Hold
  • Remote Engine Start

The transmission inside the Accord Hybrid is an Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission (E-CVT) with Sport Mode and Deceleration Selectors. It works to transfer the power generated by the engine and motor system to the front wheels. And with the Sport Mode feature and deceleration selectors, the experience behind the wheel is engaging and fun.

Fuel Efficiency

One of the main reasons to consider a hybrid vehicle is, of course, fuel economy that you can’t get with a traditional gasoline engine. Drivers will save time and money by driving for longer distances with less visits to the pump. The Accord hybrid powertrain, available in the EX, EX-L, and Touring trim levels, has a tank capacity of 12.8 gallons and an EPA estimated fuel economy of 47 mpg in the city, 47 mpg on the highway, and 47 combined mpg*.

Active Safety Features that Enhance Performance

The Accord Hybrid has a deep commitment to safety with passive and active safety features as well as driver-assistive technology features that help mitigate and prevent impacts. The active safety features enhance the Accord Hybrid’s stunning capabilities and performance on the road. These features ensure that the Accord Hybrid is performing at its best through any kind of weather or road condition.

  • Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control – Helps the Accord Hybrid maintain good tractive control of the road and helps stabilize oversteering or understeering for optimal performance.
  • Anti-Lock Braking System – This system helps prevent the brakes from locking up to prevent dangerous skidding on the road.
  • Electronic Brake Distribution – This system varies the amount of braking pressure applied to each wheel based on factors such as speed, road conditions, and driver inputs.
  • Brake Assist – Helps the Accord come to a complete stop more quickly and safely in an emergency braking situation.
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System – Monitors the pressure in each tire and notifies drivers when inflation is needed to avoid safety risks.
  • LED Daytime Running Lights – Ensures the Accord Hybrid is clearly visible to other drivers in any weather conditions while also illuminating the way ahead.
