Honda Accord Hybrid
From Honda press: The seventh-generation of the Honda Accord remains one of the most popular cars in America. For 2006, the Accord receives fresh front and rear styling as well as a long list of enhancements and additional standard equipment. Accord Coupe and Sedan models provide more power, more comfort and convenience features, and a comprehensive list of standard safety features that help make the 2006 model the most exciting and well-equipped Accord in its 30-year history.
The Honda Accord Hybrid debuted as a 2005 model and combined "high performance" and "hybrid" into the same sentence for the first time. The Accord Hybrid's IMA system is connected to a 3.0-liter V-6 engine that increases horsepower compared to the gasoline-only model and yields fuel economy comparable to that of a compact vehicle. The Accord Hybrid benefits from the updates to the entire family of Accords.
Now in its second year, the Accord Hybrid gains the same interior and exterior overhaul as all Accords. On top of being the most powerful Accord ever offered, it now has the added distinction of being among the cleanest Accords ever, achieving California Air Resources Board AT-PZEV certification for the 2006 MY. Additionally, several new standard features have been added, including a power moonroof, VSA and a temporary-use spare tire.
The exterior of the Accord Hybrid has several enhancements that will further distinguish it from other Accords. In the front a new chin spoiler has been applied, while in the rear a revised rear spoiler and rear diffuser are added. Additionally, heated side mirrors with built-in turn signals and an exclusive taillight design are added. Upgrades also include two exclusive exterior colors: Silver Frost Metallic and Premium White Pearl.
