The Accord Plug-in Hybrid is a Great Choice for 2015

December 26th, 2014 by

2015-Accord-Plug-InIf you’re shopping around for a new fuel-efficient sedan for 2015, you might want to consider the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in Hybrid. Available now at a West Michigan Honda Dealer near you, this special hybrid take on the Accord allows you to plug it in for an added charge and a short burst of electric-only driving.

How does it compare to the standard 2015 Honda Accord, though? Let’s take a look.

What’s the Difference in Fuel Economy?

The first thing that most drivers will notice about the 2014 Accord Plug-in Hybrid is its incredible EPA-estimated fuel economy of 115 MPGe electric and 47 mpg in the city.** This is quite a big jump from the still-impressive output of the standard 2015 Accord LX Sedan with CVT with its EPA-estimated 36 highway mpg.*

And for those looking to get even more out of their new sedan should look towards the 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid, which drops a hybrid powertrain under the hood of a standard Accord to deliver an EPA-estimated 50 city mpg.*

Despite the differences in the fuel efficiency of these models, there is not a hard and fast answer as to which one is right for you. The Accord Plug-in is excellent for a family vehicle used to run errands over short distances, the standard Accord is a fuel-conscious sedan with plenty of power, and the 2015 Accord Hybrid splits the difference of the two.

Redefining Standard Features

Despite the differences, these three sedans also have quite a bit in common, including some great standard features like:

  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink
  • Built-in rearview camera
  • Touchscreen infotainment system
  • Steering wheel-mounted controls

The 2014 Accord Plug-in even comes standard with navigation, adaptive cruise control, Honda LaneWatch, next-gen HondaLink telematics, 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and more.
