2017 Honda Accord Redesign

Far from it, almost every automaker is rushing to launch a new hybrid or release improved versions of existing hybrids. Honda is one such automaker. At this year’s Detroit Auto Show, the automaker showcased an upgraded version of the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid.

The automaker claims that the new model is more reliable, more efficient and has a higher performance. Last year, Honda sold around 14,000 Accord Hybrids but the Accord Hybrid’s production was interrupted midway as the automaker moved its production base to Japan for more production efficiency. Particularly, the automaker experienced problems with batteries which were shipped from Japan. The automaker has now streamlined its production and hopes to double sales to 28,000 globally. There won’t be a plug-in model this time round as Honda plans to release a fully-fledged Hybrid Plug-in model in the near future.

The 2017 Honda Accord is essentially a carryover model, and an aging one at that. Even so, most of the midsize-sedan segment is still playing catchup. The current Accord is arguably Honda at its finest. It scores highly in just about every category, and unlike many rivals, it’s a genuine pleasure to drive. If you’re looking for a family sedan that does it all, the 2017 Accord’s across-the-board excellence simply cannot be ignored.

It’s safe to say that we’re fans of the Honda Accord. Honda’s bread-and-butter mid-size car has held a spot on our annual 10Best Cars list more times (30) than any other vehicle. Credit Accord hallmarks such as excellent packaging, a comfortable ride, engaging handling, and top-notch build quality for the model’s decades-long reign.

Of course, there’s always room for improvement, and that’s most apparent in the Accord’s so-so touchscreen interface (standard from the EX on up), which isn’t as user-friendly as one might expect from the brand. The Honda Sensing safety suite is also an acquired taste, especially its alarmist collision warning system. But Honda Sensing is optional on all but the top-level Touring trim, so you’re generally not stuck with it, and a mediocre touchscreen is perhaps a small price to pay for the Accord’s outstanding driving dynamics and spacious interior, among other strengths. Resale value is top of class, too, which makes the Accord extra appealing if you’re planning to buy one and hang onto it for a while.

2017 Honda Accord Specs

Inside the Accord, you will find a well arranged cabin with a wood grain trim and flat-black inserts. The Accord Hybrid comes with a 7.0-inch touch-screen mounted on the center stack. This screen is interconnected with another display screen mounted on top of the center stack. Unlike the non-hybrids, the Accord hybrid will feature a digital instrument cluster.

On the outside, you cannot tell the Accord Hybrid apart from its non-hybrid sisters. The design is as elegant as that of non-hybrids. The front features a bold grille.  It headlights and fog lights, on the other hand, have a new blue highlight.  The corner vents have been redesigned with a more dominant face. Overall, the Honda Accord has an aggressive front fascia.

The Accord EX also builds off the LX, but it focuses more on extra amenities than sportiness, adding 17-inch wheels, LED daytime running lights and foglights, heated mirrors, a sunroof, keyless ignition and entry, remote ignition (with the automatic transmission), the eight-way power driver seat (with two-way power lumbar), Honda LaneWatch blind-spot display, a six-speaker sound system with a 7-inch touchscreen interface (the standard 7.7-inch display remains as well), satellite and HD radio and a second USB port. Also standard is smartphone app integration via HondaLink (with smartphone-enabled Aha radio features), Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

The new cluster features a huge speedometer at the center and vertical gauges on the sides. The instruments cluster is well lit with a combination of green, blue and white resulting in a captivating look. An “EV Mode” button has also been added on the right side of the center console.

On matters safety, Honda has equipped the three trim levels with adequate safety equipment as standard. They include a remote engine start, a wide-angle rearview camera and Honda Sensing. Honda Sensing is a suite of driving aids, it packs various driving aids such as lane departure warning, lane keep assist, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control, clash mitigation, and forward collision warning. The top trim will add front and rear parking sensors.

Moving to the sides, the car features new side skirts which make it look sportier. Other features are similar to those of conventional models. At the rear, its designers have hooked it up with new taillights which feature long LED piping. A chrome strip runs between the taillights.

Its blue accenting on the headlights , taillights and the “Hybrid” badge are the only exterior design cues that tell it apart from non-hybrid Accords.

2017 Honda Accord Review

2017 Honda Accord Engine

Honda has improved things under the hood to boost the Accord’s competitiveness in a world fast filling up with hybrids and EVs.  The new drive-train combines a 2.0 L i-VTEC engine with the automaker’s 2-motor hybrid system. The combination produces 212 hp, 16 horses more than the outgoing model.

The engine is not paired to a conventional mechanical transmission system since Honda has used the two-motor hybrid system.  The first motor acts as a generator and is used to recharge the battery pack while the second motor powers the front wheels. The system offers three driving modes i.e. EV Drive, Hybrid Drive and Engine Drive. In EV Drive, the vehicle is powered by the propulsion electric motor and battery pack.

The engine is EPA rated at 49 mpg in city 47 mpg on highway and 48 mpg on combined drives. Though this doesn’t seem much, it is an improvement of 1 mpg in city, 2 mpg on highway and 1 mpg on combined drives over the outgoing models were the 2016 Accord Hybrid models to use the new EPA testing formula.  These figures place the Accord at the top of this segment.

Performance figures are not yet out but we believe improvements on the drive-train should translate to a quicker acceleration and a higher top speed. As such, expect the model to hit 60 mph from the standstill in around 7.3 seconds compared to the outgoing model’s 7.5 seconds. It will also have an improved top speed of around 119 mph or more compared to the outgoing model’s 117 mph.

The Accord’s available 3.5-liter V6 is rated at 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque. A conventional six-speed automatic is the only transmission offered.

According to EPA fuel economy estimates, all CVT-equipped four-cylinder Accords but the Sport should return 30 mpg combined (27 mpg city/36 mpg highway), while the Sport rates slightly lower, at 29 mpg combined (26 city/34 highway). With the manual transmission, the four-cylinder Accord stands at 26 mpg combined (23 city/32 highway).

As for the automatic Accord V6, it’s nearly as frugal as the manual four-cylinder, checking in at 25 mpg combined (21 city/33 highway). The automatic V6 coupe drops a tick to 24 mpg combined (21 city/32 highway). With the manual, the V6 coupe brings up the rear at 21 mpg combined (18 city/28 highway).

This means the model can go for short distances on Electric power alone. The range has not been confirmed. In Hybrid Drive, only the forward motor powers the front wheels. To supplement the current drawn from the battery pack, the petrol engine powers the second motor which in turn recharges the battery. Lastly, in Engine Drive, the engine is connected to the propulsion motor via a lock-up clutch and they both power the front wheels. The vehicle achieves maximum output in this mode.
