Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview

The 2014 Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid is part traditional hybrid and part electric car. Plugging into an outlet provides an estimated electric-only range of up to 13 miles, and the gasoline engine combines with the electric powertrain to power the car once the electric-only range is depleted. Honda's Accord Hybrid (not a plug-in) is covered separately. The Accord Plug-In Hybrid competes with the Ford Fusion Plug-In Hybrid and Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid.

ExteriorDifferentiating the Accord Plug-In Hybrid's appearance from the regular Accord is unique front styling, wheels and rear spoiler. Measures to reduce weight include extensive use of aluminum for the hood, wheels, front subframe, brake pedal and rear bumper support. The Plug-In's aerodynamics are improved with a rear spoiler, aerodynamic wheel covers and aerodynamic under-covers.  Standard exterior features include:

  • 17-inch wheels 
  • LED headlights
  • LED taillights
  • Fog lights
  • Heated side mirrors with LED turn indicators

Interior Like many hybrids and electric cars, the Accord Plug-In Hybrid offers environmentally-friendly upholstery for all five seating positions. Called Honda Bio Fabric, Honda says it's a new fabric that offers softness and durability with reduced manufacturing environmental impact. The Accord Plug-In Hybrid has an available smartphone application that displays the current charging state of the vehicle and can remotely schedule charging or preheat and cool ...

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
