Most people shopping for a new car near Sherwood Park in Edmonton will know all about the stellar reputation for quality and value of the Honda Accord. But if you haven’t checked out the latest 11th generation for the 2024 model year yet, you’re in for a treat. The 2024 Honda Accord Hybrid continues the midsize sedan’s enduring formula of elegant style, outstanding safety, spacious and comfortable interiors, excellent fuel economy, and the latest technology and dials it up to eleven.
Many automakers now include the odd hybrid option in their latest models’ lineups, but hybrids dominate the latest Accord family. The new Accord lineup for 2024 includes three trim levels, and two of the three get a hybrid powertrain as part of their standard specification. The 2024 Honda Accord Hybrid skips the entry-level EX trim and starts at the mid-range Sport Hybrid, and the top-of-the-line model is the Touring Hybrid. The midsize sedan segment may be smaller than previously, but the 2024 Honda Accord Hybrid is a standout offering that deserves serious consideration. The Accord may not be a luxury model in the strictest terms, but when you look closer, you might assume that nobody has bothered to tell the Accord.
Both trim levels of the 2024 Honda Accord Hybrid feature the same gas/electric hybrid powertrain that pairs a 2.0-liter inline-four gas engine with a couple of electric motors that sit side-by-side. The combined output of the Accord’s hybrid system is a useful 204 horsepower and 247 lb.-ft. of torque, which is sent exclusively to the front wheels through Honda’s Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission (E-CVT) with Deceleration Selectors. When only a small amount of throttle is applied, the new version of the Honda Accord Hybrid can run longer in EV-only mode than the previous Accord Hybrid. You’ll love how quiet the system is, and people who enjoy driving for the sake of it will appreciate the smooth balance of power between the electric motors and the gasoline engine, which can decouple when not required.
The Accord Hybrid has four drive modes that can adjust the throttle response and the steering feel for different driving conditions and circumstances, including Normal, Sport, and Eco. The last of the four available modes is a new Individual setting that allows drivers to customize those inputs and change the responsiveness of the adaptive cruise control. Both versions of the 2024 Accord Hybrid have the same fuel economy ratings: an impressive 5.0 L/100 km in the city, 5.7 L/100 km on the highway, and 5.3 L/100 km combined.
It’s hard to imagine many shoppers being disappointed with the standard specification of the 2024 Honda Accord Sport Hybrid or the higher-spec Sport Touring. Both Accord Hybrid trim levels get standard automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitors, active lane control, adaptive cruise control, traffic jam assist, automatic high-beam headlights, and a rear seat reminder. While impressive safety credentials are important, they’re just part of what makes the 2024 Accord Hybrid exceptional value for money.
The Accord Sport Hybrid has a standard 12.3-inch touchscreen Display Audio System with eight speakers, 19-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, a ten-way power-adjusted driver’s seat, a customizable 10.2-inch Driver Information Interface Screen, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. The Touring Hybrid comes close to more expensive luxury models with an outstanding standard specification. The Touring Hybrid features Google built-in infotainment operating system, a 12-speaker premium Bose sound system, wireless charging, a Wi-Fi hotspot, heated and cooled front seats, heated rear outboard seats, and even a 6.0-inch head-up display.
If you’re shopping for a new vehicle and style, comfort, and quality are high on your list of requirements, but you also want something reliable, great to drive, high-quality, superb value for money, and incredibly fuel efficient, the 2024 Honda Accord Hybrid fits the bill.
