The Honda Accord itself has been around since all the way back in 1976, but it wasn’t until the seventh generation that the Accord Hybrid was introduced, starting in 2005 a couple years after that generation was first introduced. In the years since, it has certainly become among the most popular midsize hybrid sedans on the market. Today, the 2021 Honda Accord Hybrid is available near Tacoma WA, currently in its tenth generation and redesigned for the new model year as a mid-generation facelift. It makes a great option for any driver in the market for a hybrid sedan that offers a nice blend of efficiency and performance, with plenty of style to boot.
While the Accord as a whole has undergone some enhancements to its style, technology and safety features, the Accord Hybrid has received even more updates. Featuring refreshed design cues like a wider grille, repositioned Honda Sensing radar units, new LED headlights, smaller fog light opening, a blue H-mark on the grille, Hybrid badges on the front fenders and trunk lid and 19” wheels on the Accord Hybrid Touring trim level.
Perhaps even more exciting than the design enhancements, the Accord Hybrid also features several updates to its two-motor hybrid powertrain. Still able to generate 212 horsepower alongside 232 pound-feet of torque and achieving 48 miles per gallon*. The updates that the powertrain underwent now enable a more direct and immediate response from the throttle, enabling the vehicle to hit those power ratings right out of idle.
The 2021 Honda Accord Hybrid makes an excellent choice for any driver looking for a midsize sedan, especially if they’re interested in having superior fuel efficiency. If you think you might be interested in one of your own, be sure to give us a call right here at Honda of Fife.
