The 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid will start arriving at dealerships on March 23.

The next-generation Honda Accord Hybrid has expanded its trim levels from three to five, offering buyers more choice. This also allowed Honda to give it a lower starting price than before, with the 2018 Accord Hybrid priced from $25,990 including destination.

Compared to the previous model, that’s a $4,505 price drop and despite the lower entry point, the Accord Hybrid still offers plenty of standard features including 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights (low beam) and tail lights, dual-zone climate control, Smart entry with push-button start, a seven-inch TFT digital driver’s meter, a multi-angle rearview camera, and the Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety and driver-assist technologies. The Honda Sensing suite bundles adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, collision mitigation braking system, road departure mitigation, lane departure warning, and traffic sign recognition.

Powered by the third generation of Honda’s two-motor hybrid powertrain, the 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid has a total system output of 212 horsepower and 232 pound-feet of torque from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine combined with an electric propulsion motor. Fuel economy comes in at 47 mpg across the board (city, highway, and combined).
