2022 Honda Accord Hybrid Review and Walk Around

June 5th, 2022 by

The Honda Accord has ruled the mid-sized sedan category for decades now. It has always been a consumer favorite for its performance, functionality, and looks among other aspects. The all-new 2022 Hybrid Accord is on sale and you’ve probably heard good things about it. Below is the 2022 Accord Hybrid walk around to enlighten you with all of its highlights.


The new Accord Hybrid is part of the 10th generation of the legendary sedan from Honda. The vehicle offers you 4 trims with 1 engine. You get many safety and convenience features, plus absolute comfort. The main addition to the 2022 Hybrid model is the Sport trim.

Engine and Numbers

The hybrid is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder that works in unison with a pair of electric motors. It uses a 1.1 kWh battery, and its figures are 212 hp (combined) and 232 lb-ft. This setup is mated to an electronic direct-drive transmission.

The Accord is quite quick no matter which engine you choose. The 2022 Hybrid Accord is able to give you its best 0 to 62 mph time of about 6.7 seconds. This makes it the fastest among its rivals. But just because it is quick doesn’t mean that it is a gas guzzler.

The hybrid can provide you up to 48 mpg in the city and 48 on the highway. If you pick the Touring performance trim, then you can expect to get 44 mpg city and 41 highway. These numbers are some of the best in the midsize hybrid saloon class.

Interior and Technology

The Accord’s interior has been masterfully built as far as its looks and build quality are concerned. The cabin is quite spacious and you get some of the best legroom space in the rear. There are beautiful wood trimmings throughout the cabin that look and feel great.

The extra components from the hybrid powertrain don’t decrease the space either. So, even the trunk storage is excellent for its class. You can increase the space by folding down the 2nd row of seats. Apart from that, the in-cabin storage is stellar as well because of the many cubbies.

2022 Accord Hybrid Base

The standard features on the base model are plenty. You get dual-zone climate control, push-button ignition and remote start, and cruise control. For the infotainment, there’s an 8-inch touchscreen with integrations for Android and Apple phones, USB ports, and a 4-speaker sound system.

As part of the standard Honda Sensing package, the safety offerings are the finest in the class. You get all the latest driver’s assistance goodies such as automated emergency braking, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and the list goes on.

2022 Accord Hybrid Sport

The Sport trim is more oriented for performance but it does increase the features list a bit. For example, it adds a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a 12-way powered driver’s seat, and an upgraded stereo system with 8 speakers.

2022 Accord Hybrid EX-L

The EX-L trim is even more upscale with its leather-trimmed interior. There’s an even better 10-speaker sound system, parking sensors, a wireless phone charging pad, and smart entry w/automatic walk-away locking. You also get a cool 1-touch powered moonroof.

The front seats are heated and powered, and the driver receives a memory feature on their seat as well.

2022 Accord Hybrid Touring

The top-tier Touring model comes with a premium (and unique) faux-wood trim. It adds ventilating front seats, and heated rear seats. You also receive Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities and a head-up display showing your vehicle’s information.
