Looking far more attractive than its plug-in hybrid counterpart, the Accord Hybrid has a restrained exterior with blue accents, LED daytime running lights and unique alloy wheels. The model is also equipped with a rear spoiler and hybrid badging.

Interior changes are limited but the car has a unique display which enables owners to see their instant fuel economy and the status of the hybrid system. The model can also be equipped with perforated leather seats, an 8-inch i-MID display and a multi-angle rearview camera.

Motivation is provided by a two-motor hybrid system which consists of a 2.0-liter four-cylinder Atkinson-cycle engine and a 166 bhp (124 kW) electric motor. It should enable the model to return a class-leading fuel economy rating of 49 mpg city / 45 mpg highway / 47 mpg combined (US).

The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid will go on sale in the United States in October and pricing will be announced closer to launch.
