Now standard safety features such as adaptive cruise control, forward collision mitigation, blind-spot monitoring and lane departure warning add quite a bit of value to the base 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid Owners Manual. The new Accord Hybrid also gets an upgrade to cargo capacity thanks to a repackaged hybrid battery. Previously, the Accord Hybrid’s battery pack kept you from folding down the rear seat, but no more. The Hybrid now gets the same 60/40-split folding rear seat and the same cargo space as the standard Accord: 16.7 cubic feet.
Underneath the hood, the 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid Owners Manual has the same powertrain as last year’s model: a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a pair of electric motors. The hybrid system has lost a step in the changeover, even if it is a tiny one, going from an EPA-estimated 48 mpg combined in 2017 to 47 mpg combined this year. Still, it’s an impressive number for a car this size.
In short, one of the best hybrid sedans just got better. If you’re looking for a practical hybrid with enough space in the back seat for adults, the 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid Owners Manual should be at the top of your list.
Notably, we picked the 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid Owners Manual as one of Edmunds’ Best Hybrid Cars for this year.
