The redesigned model will be priced from $25,100 which is $4,505 less than last year’s model. Despite the significant price cut, the entry-level Accord Hybrid comes nicely equipped with LED headlights and 17-inch alloy wheels. The model also has a dual-zone automatic climate control system, a rearview camera, a push-button ignition and a 7-inch TFT display in the instrument cluster. Buyers will also find an extensive list of driver assistance systems including adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, lane departure warning and traffic sign recognition.

Moving up to the $28,890 Accord Hybrid EX adds LED fog lights, a power moonroof and a blind spot information system. The model also has heated front seats, a 12-way power driver’s seat, an eight-speaker audio system and a Display Audio system with an 8-inch display.

The Accord Hybrid EX-L starts at $31,440 and it comes equipped with leather seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Other niceties include a 4-way power passenger seat, HomeLink and a 10-speaker premium audio system with a subwoofer. The model can also be equipped with GPS navigation for an additional $1,000.

Finally, the range-topping Accord Hybrid Touring will be priced from $34,710. It includes the aforementioned equipment as well as ventilated front seats, heated rear seats and a wireless smartphone charger. Other additions include a color head up display and NFC connectivity.

All of the models are equipped with a 2.0-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder engine, a continuously variable transmission, a lithium-ion battery and two electric motors. This enables the hybrids to produce 212 hp (158 kW) and return 47 mpg city, 47 mpg highway and 47 mpg combined.

Note: Prices exclude an $890 destination and handling fee

    Unfortunately the front looks… well not attractive.

      I thought the same when the car first came out and now that I’ve seen the Sport and Touring models in person, I have to say I’m a convert. The car has a lot more presence than the previous model and looks very low and wide. Too bad the rear is mediocre.

      Thinking the chrome bar throws the look. Chrome should be a trim, not a panel.

        It just looks like a whale now and you’re right the chrome doesn’t help

    Holy shit that’s quite the cut. I guess they got spooked by the low sales of the non-hybrid models, which oddly is caused more by the lease price than the msrp apparently.

    i’d take the 1.5T instead.
