2017 Honda Accord Hybrid Edmonton AB
While Honda has a relatively small number of overall models, the marque makes sure to offer a diverse number of options even within its vehicles. For instance, the 2017 Honda Civic will end up having 5 different versions – Sedan, Coupe, Hatchback, Si and Type-R. Recently, Honda announced that one of its Accord models would be returning to the fold in a big way, and thus we give you the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid in Edmonton AB.
The Accord Hybrid was last seen in the 2015 model year as it was not updated alongside the 2016 Accord Sedan and Coupe models, but now the model will see those same updates and a host of others as it gets reintroduced to the lineup.
2017 Honda Accord Hybrid Specs & Features
In addition to receiving all of the cosmetic upgrades both inside and out that the Sedan and Coupe models received last year, the Accord Hybrid is receiving a next-generation two-motor hybrid powertrain that makes the vehicle both more powerful and efficient than previous generations. In addition, a new approach on how to utilize that hybrid power enables the vehicle to seamlessly shift between three different operating modes.
But first let’s take a look at those new specifications. The upgraded powertrain utilizes, as we mentioned, a two-motor hybrid system, but it combines it with a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that enables the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid to generate 212 horsepower while still achieving an impressive 4.9 l/100km city and 5.1 l/100km highway. That puts the Accord Hybrid above the other vehicles in its segments in terms of fuel efficiency, while delivering an enjoyable amount of power to those drivers with a bit of a lead foot.
The three different drive modes are EV Drive, Hybrid Drive and Engine Drive, with each clicking on under certain circumstances for optimum performance and efficiency. With other great new features like the inclusion of Honda Sensing and the next-gen ACE body structure, the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid brings a very exciting hybrid option to drivers in the Edmonton AB area.
