      zingerbear27 Yes sir eco-and slowly my mileage is going up it’s at 37.8 I drive really relaxed cruise control no rush I think it’s because when I got it I went from the stock rims to some 22’s then 20s then back to 17s so I has to adjust back to where I started at the mileage,,, that was my bad. I hope so

      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.

      There isa review here on youtube revealing EXACTLY how many MPG this car gets,,It is 42MPG. This review no doubts believes H's lie that it gets 47. Insight also is a lie, it actually gets about 40+MPG. Honda is so full of it. HOWEVER Honda Accord Hybrid is the best deal comparing any car on the market. They just need to learn to stop telling Illuminati lies.

      Looking into getting this sometime in the future or even the new 2019 insight. Leaning more towards the accord tho for the added space and range. I don’t get why this car gets so much hate about the looks. I think this car looks really good in my opinion. Sure they could have done a little bit better on taillights but overall it’s good looking car. Can’t wait to own one of these :)

      I understand a heated steering wheel is available in the Canadian versions of the Accord, and is available as a dealer installed option in the US. That's unfortunate. Certainly in the Touring edition (at a minimum) it should be standard here in the US.

      You gave one piece of misinformation–that it has a CVT transmission. According to Honda it has "two-motor intelligent multimode drive (i-MMD)." It's a new innovation from Honda that no other car has, where the computer controls the electric motor and gas engine, using them in parallel or serial combination when needed under high demand conditions. It appears to me from their schematics that although there is no gear shifting, either engine or both can engage the gear train that drives the wheels. It's a one-speed gear that can turn very high rpms. When under electric motor propulsion, the gas engine can disengage to minimize friction energy loss.

      While fuel economy is extremely important - 0-60 acceleration is nearly as important to me.   The Prius is a pretty nice car provided you don't need to enter highways or fast moving roads.    I could not be part of their dangerous highway merges or passing.

      David Pierce In reply to Boe Dillard

      Another review I read said the 0-60 time (given the 212 hp) should fall somewhere between the Accord 1.5T and the 2.0T. If that's true, it would be about 6.6 seconds 0 - 60. That's very good!

      Supposedly it's around 7.7 seconds 0-60, which doesn't seem bad for a hybrid.

    • Car Confections
      Car Confections In reply to pmafdahl

      You're very welcome! And if it were up to me, I would pick the EX-L trim. You really don't lose much from the Touring, besides ventilated front seats, heated rear seats and full-LED lights. The wheels remain the same, so exterior styling is nearly identical. To me it's not worth the price difference, but if you want the full luxury experience you can't go wrong with the Touring! Hope that helps!

      I got a 2014 and was able to get 48 MPG 2 tanks in a row by being mindful and got over 700 miles to the tank. Wonder why they made the tanks smaller and if they put a heat pump system so the engine doesn't have to stay on when you're calling for heat in colder weather.

      Henry Cheng In reply to Jay Feliciano

      The tank maybe smaller but the range is still 1.5 times of a regular gasoline car. Smaller tank translated into less weight carrying and less tank size. Which translate to more space and cargo carry capacity. Given that it has a full size trunk, I won’t mind the trade off at all.

      I have a 2014 Hybrid Accord and have averaged 48mpg for over 120,000 miles. Occasionally I have topped 50, but usually it is just under if it is warm and a few below 48 if it is winter.

      jsponson In reply to itsmegp46

      It's basically an electric transmission. One motor/generator turns the mechanical power from the engine into electricity and passes it to the other motor that spins the wheels. The engine is only mechanically connected to the wheels at certain highway speeds.

      There is a temporary setting in the technician screen you can set the audio system to flat and makes it sound so much fuller. But it resets when you turn off the car. The speakers are capable of producing high fidelity music. But the DSP just kills everything. The rear deck subwoofer blends in better on the flat setting. Some genius at Honda who is not an audio expert decided to do this to protect the speakers. I ran into a guy who had the XLE like I do. He installed a clean sweep processor after the out put. I was amazed what a simple change made sounded like a good JBL audio system or even a Lexus system. I new what a clean sweep does it basically flattens the peaks and adds the lower frequencies the OEM remove. I did a before and after with an older frequency analyzer I borrowed. The stock frequencies were high on the higher frequencies and dropped off a cliff after 500hz. After the processor it filled in all the peaks and either raised or lowered frequencies to flatten everything. The stock system now sounded fat and full. Now from there you can adjust with factory controls. I am not talking bass head bass but well rounded and natural. Some are happy to pay a premium for a premium audio system that is poor. But I am not. Since that tune several processors came out that go in line after the dsp of the stock system. You do not need better speakers it’s just the capability or potential of the stock system is being chocked.

      600 mile range is good, but the 2017 Accord had 750+ range with its 15.8 gallon tank... Is the 2018 gas tank smaller to help with trunk space? 2018 has a full size trunk, where as 2017 and earlier were compromised

      Yep, since the battery is now under the back seat where some of the gas tank was. They probably got more complaints about compromised trunk space than they did about driving range. ;)
