While the Honda Accord has been around for decades, its hybrid counterpart wasn’t introduced until 2005. In the years since, it has established itself quite the reputation within its segment. There are plenty of other midsize hybrid sedans out there, but the 2021 Honda Accord Hybrid certainly makes a great option among them. Available right here at Hilton Head Honda near Savannah GA, we’re pleased to offer a great vehicle to shoppers in the area.
For the 2021 model year, the Accord Hybrid has been updated just like its gas-only sibling. Both models benefit from some upgrades to style – both inside and out – plus new technologies and safety features. For example, the Hybrid EX trim and above now feature LED high- and low-beam headlights that flank a newly designed grilled. Those same trims get the new wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, while all Accord models get the new Rear Seat Reminder safety feature.
More excitingly for the 2021 Accord Hybrid, however, are the updates that have come to its unique two-motor hybrid powertrain. Engineers have created a throttle response that’s both more direct and immediate than previous iterations, translating to a more natural progression of acceleration. The system provides a maximum power output of 212 horsepower alongside 232 pound-feet of torque, but more importantly, achieves a fuel economy rating of 48 miles per gallon*.
The Accord Hybrid also benefits from a new blue H-mark on its unique grille, plus Hybrid badges decorating various parts of the exterior. Additionally, the Accord Hybrid Touring trim level has been upgraded with 19” wheels, giving it an even sportier feel.
