The Extra Mile in Everett, WA is a Matter of Course in the New 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid

Both the auto industry and the future are going green. Automakers and drivers from Kirkland to Bothell, our 98012 area and everywhere between, are moving toward alternatives that go the distance, both geographically and on fuel efficiency. Though crossovers and compact SUVs are all the rage lately, hybrid mid-size sedans remain just as compelling. But it’s the new Honda Accord Hybrid that stands apart from the rest. As it has been for years, it remains a proven performer, loaded with safety and driver-assist features for peace of mind as well as the advanced tech and amenities to make the ride a pleasure cruise.

Redesigned from the ground up for 2018, from base and EX to top-tier EX-L and Touring trims, from LED taillights and chrome exhaust finishers to every feature under the hood and in-cabin in between, the new 2018 Accord Hybrid now appears in a new fastback design, with active grille shutters and air curtains to make it more aerodynamic. It also delivers on spirited driving feel, offering a 143-horsepower VTEC® inline-four engine that couples with a 181-horsepower electric motor, providing a net 212 horsepower. Bring an Eco Assist&#trade; System, an electronic continuously variable transmission (E-CVT), and energy-recouping deceleration selectors into the mix, and efficiency balances power well to boot for the drive out to Lynnwood, WA and its 98087 neighborhood.

On the road, Honda Sensing® technology, coming standard throughout the lineup, has your security covered. The suite includes forward collision warning, a Collision Mitigation Braking System&#trade; (CMBS&#trade;) for avoiding accidents, it mitigates road departure, warns you of unintended lane departure, helps you remain in-lane and safely distanced from other vehicles, and can even recognize traffic signs to inform you of local regulations. Plus, a Blind Spot Information System with a Cross Traffic Monitor is an option in the Accord Hybrid EX trim and later, adding situational awareness.

Conveniences for the drive include dual-zone automatic climate control for cabin customization, available heated and ventilated leather seating, push-button start, and a 160-watt, four-speaker, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system offering USB and Bluetooth connectivity, which becomes a 180-watt, eight-speaker, 8-inch system in higher trims. The latter features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for smartphone integration and SiriusXM, Pandora, and HD Radio support for expanded entertainment options.

At the top of the line, the superb sound quality of a 450-watt, ten-speaker premium audio system joins the directional convenience of a Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System&#trade; with voice recognition and Honda HD Digital Traffic. Factor in optional mobile hotspot support for a connection to civilization, wireless charging capability to keep your devices energized, and a head-up display to apprise you of driving metrics with a windshield projection, and no Seattle or greater 98290 area excursion's off the map.
