New 2024 Honda Accord Hybrid Engine, Horsepower, Specs – The 2024 Honda Accord ranks highly on our four-door vehicles—crossovers, sedans, trucks, or anything with four doors—due to its appealing combination of style, practicality, spaciousness, and of course, affordability. This year, the Accord remains unchanged, as does our TCC Rating. It earns a 7.0 rating due to its spaciousness and features and its superior safety ratings. Fortunately, the Accord does not appear more attractive with additional money.
Each trim level inherits the new Accord’s superb aesthetics, which are accentuated by a fastback roofline that is back and looks better than other fashions we tend to revisit—ahem, mom jeans. According to the EPA, the base engines produce 192 horsepower and achieve a combined fuel economy of more than 30 miles per gallon. According to our informal stopwatches, the 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine is the Accord’s fastest engine—it takes around six seconds to reach 60 mph, and is available with either a 10-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission.
2024 Honda Accord Redesign
According to the EPA, the Accord Hybrid achieves up to 48 miles per gallon combined, owing to Honda’s patented two-motor technology that seldom clutches in the gas engine. Regardless of the machine, all Accords provide ample space and comfort for four adults—or five if necessary. The rear seat has more than 40 inches of leg space, which is identical to the CR-V’s.
Each 2024 Honda Accord comes equipped with roughly 17 cubic feet of cargo space, featuring a big cutout for convenient loading of heavy objects. The Accord’s crashworthiness has been lauded by federal and independent testers, earning it a Top Safety Pick and a five-star overall rating. Automatic emergency braking, active lane control, and adaptive cruise control are all standard on all Accords.
The Accord Hybrid is powered by a 2.0-liter inline-4 engine and an electric motor through hybrid batteries. The gasoline engine produces 143 horsepower but is rarely used to move the wheels. Rather than that, Honda utilizes the gas engine to power a generator that feeds energy to the batteries, which power the front wheel’s electric motors.
In certain instances, the gas engine clutches in to assist with wheel drive, although Honda emphasizes that this is the exception, not the rule. The entire system power is 212 hp, but what counts most is the combined fuel economy of 48 mpg. The Accord Hybrid performed admirably in our brief testing, with few changes between it and the 1.5-liter turbo-4 variants. The engine may race erratically as a result of its primary function of supplying electricity, not necessarily power.
The 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine achieves 23/34/27 mpg when fitted with a 10-speed automatic gearbox and 22/32/26 mpg when coupled with a 6-speed manual or 10-speed automatic transmission in Sport or Touring models. The Camry maintains its lead with a combined fuel economy of 32 mpg in its most common configuration and up to 52 mpg with a hybrid engine.
2024 Honda Accord Release Date and Price
The 2024 Accord LX starts at $24,800, but fully equipped touring 2.0L Turbo vehicles exceed $37,000. The Accord range, like a Southern Baptist conference, is focused on value, but with less fury. We’ll recommend the EX to customers based on its infotainment system, available powertrains, and sub-$30,000 starting price.
For $28,700, the EX trim level adds remote start, 17-inch alloy wheels, blind-spot monitors, a sunroof, heated front seats, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, two high-power USB ports, and an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. While leather upholstery increases the price by $2,500, it also includes a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, a power-adjustable passenger seat, and improved audio. The upgraded engine adds $2,000 to the price.
