2020 Honda Accord Hybrid review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 Honda Accord?

The Accord is Honda’s five-seat mid-size family sedan. Now in its 10th generation, the front-wheel-drive Accord comes with a standard 192-horsepower, turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine or an available 252-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder. A six-speed manual transmission is available for both engines. The 1.5-liter engine can also work with a continuously variable automatic transmission while the 2.0-liter engine can pair with a 10-speed automatic. There’s also an efficient Accord Hybrid with a two-motor hybrid powertrain that incorporates a 2.0-liter four-cylinder and gets an EPA-estimated 48 mpg combined. Competitors include the Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima and Chevrolet Malibu.

What’s New on the 2020 Honda Accord?

There are no significant changes this year.

What Features in the 2020 Honda Accord Are Most Important?

Standard features include push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control and a multimedia system with a 7-inch screen; an available 8-inch touchscreen system adds Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. Other options include a head-up display, upgraded audio systems, navigation, wireless device charging, leather-trimmed seats, heated and ventilated front seats, and heated rear seats.

Standard active safety features include forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control and automatic high-beam headlights. Blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert and front and rear parking sensors are optional.

2020 Honda Accord Vs. 2020 Toyota Camry: How Do They Compare?

The Accord and Camry long have been popular choices in the family sedan class. The Accord has been the sportier, better-driving sedan of the two, but the Camry closed the gap considerably with its latest redesign. Both cars offer fuel-efficient gas-electric hybrid variants, but if you want a V-6 engine you’ll need to look at the Camry; the Accord doesn’t offer one.

Should I Buy the 2020 Honda Accord?

The Accord is an impressive mid-size sedan — it beat the Camry and Altima in a Cars.com comparison test — that packs a wealth of standard safety features. Both the gas-only and hybrid versions drive well, and the available turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder delivers strong acceleration. Interior quality is a bit inconsistent and ride quality is busy with the available 19-inch wheels, but the Accord is nonetheless a worthy contender in the mid-size class.

Love it so far, but unhappy with recalls

Great ride, great acceleration when you need it, especially for a hybrid, handles exceptionally well. Only issue is two safety recalls, both for on board computer issues, in first year of ownership. I know this is a new model year and expected a potential glitch at some point, but was still disappointed at 2 in less than a year. Both presented no operability issues fortunately. I would recommend this car if all glitches are worked out.

5.0

One of the best family sedans out there

This car was bought to replace a 2017 Toyota Camry that was totaled in an accident. After much searching we found the interior/exterior color combo we wanted. This is our first hybrid ,and while it takes a little time to get used to the feel of a hybrid, we were very happy with the drivability and overall feel of the car.Honda claims up to 48 MPG city. We've achieved low 40's since our current commute is very short. That will most likely change once I start driving for Uber again, so I'm confident that the MPG figure will reach Honda's claim.

4.0
