2022 Honda Accord Hybrid Review: Accomplished In All The Right Ways

With its contemporary design, high comfort levels, and commodious interior, the Honda Accord Hybrid is proof that hybrid vehicles can be good-looking, practical, and still offer the benefits of electrification. Powering the sedan is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine augmented by two electric motors and a lithium-ion battery for combined outputs of 212 horsepower and 232 lb-ft of torque. Not only does the powertrain bestow the Accord Hybrid with a brisk 0 to 60 mph acceleration time of 6.7 seconds according to independent testing, but it also offers truly impressive gas mileage estimates of 48 mpg in the city in its most efficient trim.

While specs and fuel economy are good, the Honda Accord Hybrid also offers a polished ride quality. It also comes comprehensively outfitted with high-end features including an extensive selection of driver assists, resulting in superlative safety reviews from both the NHTSA and the IIHS. The latter review bestows the Honda Accord with a Top Safety Pick+ award for 2022. But, despite what seems like a never-ending list of positives, the Accord Hybrid has tough competition in the segment. The evergreen Toyota Camry Hybrid and Hyundai Sonata Hybrid both have a lot to offer, including brilliant fuel economy, loads of features, and a spacious interior. The question remains, how does the Accord compare?

Verdict: ๐ŸIs 2022 Honda Accord Hybrid a good Sedan?

Though not the most popular seller in the hybrid sedan segment, the Honda Accord Hybrid does seem to really impress anyone that's been behind its wheel. Like the regular Accord, the Accord Hybrid boasts an eye-catching aesthetic and it's surprisingly fun to drive. It's sprightly and nimble, and at the same time, really frugal. It's reasonably affordable for a hybridized midsize sedan, too, and it's one of the more spacious and practical sedans in the classification.

Honda presents the Accord Hybrid with a comprehensive range of comforts and conveniences, but the long list of advanced driver assists and safety gear really seal the deal. This is echoed in excellent safety reviews from the authorities. Of course, the Honda Accord Hybrid is not without its problems - the 2.0L four-pot hybrid motor tends to run out of steam and the trunk has a rather impractical opening. With all of its positive qualities, those few disadvantages feel quite trivial, especially when you consider how affordable and well-rounded the Accord Hybrid is. It's easy to recommend, even from among excellent contenders like the Sonata or Camry hybrids.

๐Ÿš˜What's the Price of the 2022 Honda Accord Hybrid?

Honda presents the Honda Accord at a starting price of $27,320, which is $300 up over the prior year's entry-spec trim level. The new addition to the latest lineup, the Sport, comes in at $30,670, which is $300 less than 2021's EX trim level that it replaces. At the higher-end of the spectrum, the Hybrid EX-L comes in at an MSRP of $33,640 and the top-spec Hybrid Touring at an MSRP of $37,190. All prices are exclusive of Honda's $1,015 destination charge and do not include any tax, registration, and licensing fees. Though there aren't many optional add-ons and packages offered for the line, the fully loaded Hybrid Touring can cost upwards of $42,000 which brings it toward BMW 330e sedan pricing.
