Exterior and Performance
The 2020 Accord Hybrid is equipped with a 1,993 cc engine block that generates up to 143 horsepower and 129 pound-feet of torque. Port fuel injection and the i-VTEC valvetrain are some notable technologies of this I-4 gasoline powertrain. An electric motor increases the hybrid system’s net output to 212 hp and 232 lb-ft of torque.

The Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission (E-CVT) system is custom-tuned for this hybrid sedan.
You can also select three different driving modes for the hybrid powertrain. For instance, the EV Mode completely shuts off the engine block during a drive.

This hybrid Honda sedan also comes standard with the Eco Assist and Hill Start Assist technologies. The Active Noise Cancellation significantly reduces any noise that’s generated during combustion.
