2017 Honda Accord Hybrid vs 2017 Chevy Volt
Comparing a regular hybrid vehicle with a plug-in hybrid vehicle can be difficult, but the Chevy Volt is quickly becoming one of the most popular hybrid vehicles on the market, so we wanted to see how our all-new Accord Hybrid fares against it. So instead of straight up comparing the hybrid vs plug-in hybrid, we decided to focus on the regular hybrid version of the Chevy Volt as we pit the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid vs 2017 Chevy Volt.
Advantages of the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid
The table above depicts some of the most important specifications in hybrid sedans like these – fuel efficiency and space. Obviously, for the sake of this comparison, we decided to just look at the hybrid nature of the vehicle. So we thought it important to note that the Volt can operate as an all-electric vehicle for a small number of miles, giving it a pretty big advantage over the Accord Hybrid.
But in terms of regular hybrid driving, the Accord Hybrid unsurprisingly blows the Volt out of the water. 5.5 l/100km city and 5.6 l/100km highway both sound like pretty good numbers, but the overhauled Accord Hybrid achieves 4.8 l/100km and 5.0 l/100km respectively, saving you quite a bit of money on gas when not operating all-electric.
Plus, the Accord Hybrid is a great deal bigger. Not only does it offer an extra 3.1 cubic feet of space for you to hold more stuff in the trunk, but it also offers an extra 19 cu. ft. of space in the cabin for you and your friends to stretch out and get comfortable in. If these advantages are enough for you to overlook the all-electric nature of the Volt, then be sure to schedule a test drive right here on our website and come take one for a spin yourself.
