A video on my new ride, the 2019 Honda Accord Hybrid Touring. The Honda Accord was redesigned in 2018. This vehicle gets an amazing 48 City and 48 Highway giving it a combined 48 MPG. That's 1 MGP more on the 2019 model compared to the 2018 model. It has 10 speakers and 1 sub.

The car is very simple to drive, it drives like a gas Honda Accord except it's a hybrid. I wouldn't be able tell the difference outside without the badge for hybrid. The styling inside and outside is very modern with wood like accent inside and chrome scattered outside. It's 2.0 Liter engine give it's 212 hp with the CVT transmission.

For those in the SF Bay Area, I purchased this car from Walnut Creek Honda (Sales rep. David Klenow). I found the Lunar Silver Metallic exterior with Black leather was very hard to find and waiting a few weeks before I was able to land this one.

The closest competitor IMO is the Toyota Camry Hybrid XLE. I'll do another video on why I chose the Accord over the Camry but both are excellent vehicles.

Thanks for watching, please help with a thumbs and any comments that would help others.

      Just bought one in Toronto and I can confirm it has a CVT. I took it for a test drive and I am a newly convert to Japanese sedans. It's a dream. It was the touring we chose and boy, it is loaded with goodies. Compared to a BMW which was almost 20% more and less options, I think we made the most practical, rational and best overall choice.

      Congrats, if it's the Hybrid Touring that's pretty good. I purchased higher than that with some options.

      Do you have to plug it into an electrical outlet or just fill up with unleaded gas like a regular car? Thank you!

      For the Accord Hybrid, it's just fill up the regular unleaded gas. If you want a plug-in, Honda Clarity is the one.

      The 12V battery in the engine bay is not part of the hybrid system, that HV battery is usually under rear seats or trunk

      netman88 In reply to Andrew Cash

      Correct, yes the HV battery is under the 2nd row seat. It no longer takes space in the trunk. The trunk space is now similar to non-hybrid models.

      Hi what’s your average mpg when you’re doing 80+mph? I watch multiple vids reviewers mention that going above 75mph lowers their mpg? Is that true?
      Thanks again

      inherentjesse In reply to 7.62 NATO

      Most vehicles no matter what you get, tend to get lower mpg at 75+ mph because it requires a decent amount of energy to maintain that speed.

      I have that video here on Real MPG: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfLJEmyvqYw If you do above 75 Mph my guess you'll be around 38-39 mpg.

      Thanks for the review! Is it true if you drive in sport mode you essentially are not using the hybrid part of the engine? Considering getting one of these but if I am just going to drive in sport mode all the time, is it better just to buy a Sport?

      No, that's not true. Did a Toyota person tell you that? They are just jealous.


      Most of the time, it's a serial hybrid. That means the gas engine drives generator, and the electricity from the generator drive an electric motor. It is true that the ratio of the engine rpms to wheel rpms can vary continuously, but that's because they aren't connected to each other. There is no transmission at all; not a CVT, or an eCVT. So why does Honda call it one? I guess they didn't what to wrinte "none" in that box. But i


      In EV mode, the battery substitutes for the gas engine and generator. Cruising at highway speeds, the gas engine skips the generator and does connect - with one gear - to the wheels.


      None of this has anything to do with Sport mode.

      The hybrid doesn't have a CVT from what I understand. The Electric motor is geared directly to the drive wheels. Honda is the only manufacturer that has a hybrid that doesn't utilize a transmission.

      It drives really smooth and very spacious with lots of technology. I found it hard to find a silver in our area though.
