2014 Honda Accord Review

The 2014 Honda Accord cars get another model added to the lineup: the Accord Hybrid. This model name has been with us before, back between 2005 and 2007, but this time it's different. This is not at all the same car.

The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid is completely new. It is a 4-door saloon car that comes in three different trims, all with a base 2.0 L inline 4-cylinder engine and two electric engines. One is used for motivation and the other is for recharging. It also has a lithium-ion battery pack located in the trunk.

The Hybrid differs from the Plug-in Hybrid, introduced in 2013, in that its secondary electric engine facilitates the recharging of the batteries. This is why it doesn't need to be plugged in to an electrical outlet, a considerable advance in the concept of electric cars.

With the two hybrid cars alongside the Coupe and the Sedan, this brings the Accord family up to a much greater position of strength. What has always been a popular, top selling model is now likely to sell even better. Whichever 2014 Honda Accord you choose, you really can't go far wrong.

Exterior Looks and Performance

The slimmer, leaner look of the Accord is carried over from the 2013 models into 2014. The LX gets a bit more fancy in its cabin, but that's about it, really. The emphasis in 2014, as it was in 2013, is really about the Hybrid fuel economy, which, by the way is pretty good.

The LX trim gets upgraded fabric upholstery for 2014. The comfort of all the cars is good, as you'd expect, with not much changed. This is still a great value range of cars, and while the 2014 model is not much changed, other than the addition of the Hybrid, don't take 'little change' to mean it isn't good; The 2014 Honda Accord is brilliant!

Interior Layout and Comfort

Other than the already mentioned fabric upholstery upgrade for the LX, the interior cabin layout remains pretty much the same. It's still as roomy and spacious as ever, with a good, comfortable ride in all almost road conditions.

The Sedan and Hybrid Sedan, as well as the Plug-in Hybrid Sedan, are all surprisingly quite on the road. The Coupe has more noise intrusion, but not annoyingly so.
