Honda Accord offers several variants that we categorize as Non-Hybrid and Hybrid types. But honestly, we are more interested in analyzing more about the Honda Accord Hybrid, q of the engine that is presented to seem more efficient than other competitors.
We will present a review about the 2020 Honda Accord Hybrid for those of you who like athletic sedans with fuel-efficient engine performance.
The exterior of the Honda Accord Hybrid
This 10th generation Honda Accord has various updates on various sides. On the exterior, such as, the appearance combines the typical athletic essence of a sedan and the feel of a sport. We think this new thing is promising to reach consumers like young executives and other young people. Here is our full review about the exterior design of the Honda Accord Hybrid.
The word ‘Genius’ might be the right thing to describe the front side. By still maintaining the classic concept like its predecessor, the latest generation Honda Accord only experienced a little polish. Thick chrome front grille like the Honda BR-V combined with blue accents can give a strong identity for its class as Hybrid. The lamp features also seem perfect with the formation of LED Automatic Head Lamp Auto Leveling, LED Fog Lights and LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL).
The side body is still thick with the typical athletic feel of the sedan. It looks luxurious with Multi-Spoke Aluminum Alloy rims measuring 17 inches. As if it looks harmonious with the length of the body measuring 4,933 mm. Another interesting thing was observed in the practical features on the rearview mirror that can be folded automatically and has been integrated with the turn signal.
Not to be outdone, the backside is also packed with details, especially in the design of the lights that seem sharp, aggressive but sporty. At the bottom of the right light is also embedded in a logo that reads ‘Hybrid’ as the bearer of his identity. Meanwhile, the quality of the lighting on the back is classified as qualified with Tail Lights and LED Light Bars.
Interior of the Honda Accord Hybrid
The group as a sedan, of course, is required to present cabin space that is not only comfortable but also elegant on each side. The same thing also applied to the interior space of the Honda Accord Hybrid. Relying on qualified features combined luxurious feel, guaranteed to make you seem more confident while driving it.
Honda Accord was released into several variants that have different features. In the highest variant of the Honda Accord, such as, the dashboard panel is well designed by combining three colors namely black and quality wood panels. As for us, we just give a thumbs up if we see an advanced audio system that now appears in the style of the Floating Touchscreen and of course has been supported by attractive features.
Seeing the steering wheel design, the appearance is quite sporty and at the same time luxurious. Using quality leather material combined with wood panels at the top. Some practical buttons are also embedded on both sides of the steering wheel so that the driver can easily access the operating features. Things like audio settings, Cruise Control technology, and connectivity can be activated practically.
The capacity of the chair still accommodates five people at once like the sedan class that we know. Observed from the Wheelbase side, the Honda Accord has dimensions of 2,830 mm. Of course, this change is enough for us to appreciate where passengers can feel a more relaxed sitting position.
Although the Honda Accord Hybrid uses an engine and a motorbike, the luggage capacity appears relieved. Unlike some other Hybrid models, the electric motor is generally placed on the backside to give a narrower luggage capacity. This is in fact not found on the Honda Accord Hybrid, considering the motorcycle is positioned under the rear seat to offer more roomy luggage capacity. Of course, this is also one of the interesting advantages that should be taken into account as a sedan that presents practical utility for the owner.

This feature is quite useful to keep up the visibility of the glass to decrease the effects of dew at night.
Reflecting on the 2018 Honda Accord model, the braking and stability technology that has been applied is now reapplied to this latest generation.

On the braking side, such as, using the composition of technology Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA). Whereas the stability technology combines Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) and Hill Start Assist (HSA).
Other interesting considerations are also focused on Honda Sensing (HS) technology which implements various features such as Collision Mitigation System (CMBS), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) and Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR) )
For entertainment, the Honda Accord relies on a 7-inch Advanced Display Touchscreen panel.
