That's a $4,505 price drop compared to the previous model.
Although we recently learned the all-new Honda Accord is not exactly the hot-selling sedan it once was, there’s no questioning its excellent build quality and overall improvement from its predecessor, which was already a great car. So we can imagine Honda is hoping the new Accord Hybrid will help boost sales, and it’ll have a base MSRP of just $25,100, not including the $890 destination fee. The automaker has just announced pricing for all 2018 Accord Hybrid trims, and with that destination charge factored in the starting price comes to $25,990.
Also with that destination fee included, the rest of the Accord Hybrid trim level pricing is as follows: EX: $29,780, EX-L: $32,330 EX-L Navi: $33,330, Touring: $35,600. Regardless of trim, all 2018 Accord Hybrids come powered by Honda’s two-motor hybrid powertrain, which pairs a 2.0-liter i-VTEC inline-four cylinder to an electric motor with an EPA-rated 47 mpg city/highway/combined. Combined output is 212 hp and 232 lb-ft of torque. Also worth noting is that the new Hybrid's base price dropped by $4,505 compared to the previous model. Standard features include 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and taillights, dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button start, a 7-inch driver’s digital gauge cluster, and a multi-angle rear view camera.
There’s also a number of standard safety technologies like adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation braking system, lane departure warning and traffic sign recognition. Compared to the last Accord, the new sedan has grown in size, specifically with a 2.16-inch longer wheelbase that enables class-leading cargo space, interior space, and rear legroom. A split-folding 60/40 rear seat is also now included thanks to a 32 percent smaller intelligent power unit that’s now mounted under the rear floor instead of in the trunk. Honda also points that the Accord and Accord Hybrid are not only manufactured in Ohio, but also many of its parts are domestically-sourced. Its engine, for example, is also assembled at the Marysville Auto Plant.
