      Very good video but one thing that bugged me was you kept saying two point O like the letter O, it is a two point-zero liter not trying to dog you just use proper pronunciation next time.

      PLEASE DONT BUY THIS TRASH*****
      my accord almost killed me, braking system failed multiple times. Honda couldn't fix the problem. It has been 2 months and they are on their 4th part replacement. In my opinion dont buy honda and especially their HYBRIDS. I'm WARNING you. costumer serives is terrible, no one gets back to you, I have went back and forth with the head office and dealer ship. This is not how I imagined my new car Experience. I wish I went with the Toyota my second option at the time. Honda has no reliability***
      I want to help as many people now.

      Actually itsmpegp46 didn’t get it quite right either. The 2018 Honda Hybrid doesn’t have a CVT transmission. It employs direct-drive gearing. It uses an Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission - E-CVT.

      Though a E-CVT is also a form of automatic transmission, it is different from Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).  CVTs operate by using a metal belt or chain running between two pulleys and use hydraulic pressure for the belt to ride higher or lower.  However, E-CVT does not use a belt or chain, it actually uses an electric motor/generator to control the planetary gearset components’ speeds.  This lets the gear ratio to continuously change in order to keep the engine’s rpm in a “sweet spot.”  Furthermore, this transmission type allows for a smooth, efficient ride from the hybrid system it is partnered with.

      from car and driver : "Like the previous Accord hybrid, the new car revs high, groans, goes quiet, and shoots to high revs all over again like it’s packing a continuously variable automatic (CVT), despite the fact that this Honda doesn’t have a transmission at all (it employs direct-drive gearing). The Atkinson-cycle, port-injected 2.0-liter inline-four musters 143 horsepower and 129 lb-ft of torque to turn a generator, while a 181-hp electric motor provides most of the tractive force. Maximum combined output is 212 horsepower. Both powerplants can drive the front wheels independently or—when the throttle is matted at higher speeds—in concert. "

      You forgot to Mention that you can fit an Actual Spare Tire on the Trunk of the Hybrid. That's a Big Plus.

      Do you know if there are any Major Differences between the 2018 and 2019 Accord Hybrids?

      Features: Look under the trunk tire cover, tons of built in packing space for all the things only sometimes needed. USB supports thumb drives. I got a 128GB unit to work (256 did not work) and I have all my FLAC ripped songs in the car feeding direct. I am still trying to figure out on the "power flow" what the little gear in the center means, only sometimes appears. The "lane departure" is a good way to train us to use our blinker :)

      Thanks for taking the time to make this video, nicely done! Yesterday my wife and I test drove the 2018 accord hybrid ex L, and the 2018 insight touring. I found the accord amazingly comfortable to sit in, and the ride going down the road was awesome! It was firm, yet very soft. Kinda hard to explain. It cornered very nice, yet the suspension over terrible minnesota roads was world class. When my wife floored it, it didnt pin us back in the seat like her 2012 accord coupe V6, and the engine revved very high. Interestingly, I dont recall seeing a red line for too high of engine rpm"s. Maybe it's designed to be pinned for max power/high revs?? With it being a brand new car, when she floored it, the supplemental battery power wasnt fully charged, maybe half charged. So I'm thinking that was contributing to the car not launching better than it did. The regenerative battery braking steering wheel paddles is kinda cool, I was hitting the left one to slow the car down, however, I'm not sure what the point is of having the right paddle? Even the lowest trim level has some pretty nice touches, like alloy wheels. I do wonder if my wife will wreck the engine from flooring it, after she buys one. Maybe the engine is similar to a honda motorcycle engine, (and many others) where it is designed to be high revved. Coming in at 0-60 in 6.7 seconds, our test didnt seem to be anywhere near that, but again, could be from not having enough batt juice, and or, the engine is in break in mode, as it had only 3 miles on it. The insight was also comfy and nice, but it seemed to me the accord was more refined. I am curious if there will be any sweet "black friday" deals next week. Msrp for a 2018 touring is 35,600, but we found better shaved off msrp prices for new accord hybrids on cars.com in our area, which we will see what they can do for a trade in. The car is alot of money, but I can see why, after driving one.

      Great review on a great car. I recently bought a 2018 Accord Hybrid Touring (in Modern Steel), and LOVE it. The engine is smooth, it is plenty powerful when needed (I unintentionally spun the tires pulling out into traffic), the eCVT is smooth and always ready, and this car is quiet. However, I will say that the 47/47/47 mpg rating is not accurate. I got 55.7 mpg city mpg today and average in the HIGH 40s and low 50s when combined. It has so much technology. Everyday I'm learning new things it can do. This is a FANTASTIC car. Great looks (MANY compliments on the color and the car's looks from friends and strangers), superb quality and a quiet and luxurious ride. And it's a FUN car to drive. I may have to add stabilizer to the gas tank since I go so long before filling up.

      MotoGQ In reply to Sjrick

      You will not benefit with a hybrid unless you drive a lot. Get a PHEV or full on EV. One mile of driving will not allow the battery to regenerate and the gas engine will constantly be running because it's attempting to charge the battery and assist the electric motor.

      If you only live less than a mile from work, you might as well just walk to work and save a lot of wear and tear on your car. Just get a low-cost used car for driving on the weekend to places. There are plenty of used Prius costing only a few thousands dollars to buy used, and they will last for a good long time to come.

      I have an Insight Hybrid, 2012 as 2nd car..(job long daily ridiculous commute).................I think Hybrid is A plus plus given gas is always hovering near $4 gal but yeah not many miles you put on car but also don't forget hybrid based cars put out MUCH MUCH less overall emission into the world. No short trips do NOT kill hybrids....Not even close.....they are like any other car to me.....just more environmentally conscious they say we are being (yeah well how about all those landfills with those nasty lithium hybrid batteries to fill our world in next 10 yrs with no solution......nevermind,, don't be scared of Hybrid car....) .........those who say oh yeah you'll get over 40 mph on your hybrid car..NEVER for me........90 mph on freeways, air cond always on or sunroof open.......i get 34 mpg like prob regular non hybrid......not an excuse for some of yall to drive slow on fwy, esp in fast lane on fwy......and I'm gonna git you .........to those who dilly dally.....move over, Martha.........I'm gonna blow by at 90 mph in my AMC Pacer..lol
