What happened when the new 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid was tested for fuel efficiency and for speed?
TFL’s Nathan Adlen and Andre Smirnov found out recently after taking the new Accord for a test drive.
The new Accord’s engine produces about 212 horsepower and has a combined torque of 232 lb-ft. The vehicle gets about 49 mpg city and 47 mpg highway with a combined 48 mpg.
For part of the test, Nathan and Andre made sure the Accord was in eco mode and also had the EV mode on so they could use all the efficiency technology the vehicle offers.
During their 0-60 MPH test, they put the Accord into sport mode to see if that made any difference.
The Accord’s base price starts at about $29,600. The version they tested came with many other options added and was priced at $33,740. The Accord Hybrid competes with the Toyota Camry Hybrid, which starts at $26,800 for its base model.
