2014 Honda Accord Hybrid Prices Start Below $30,000

By: Jeff Youngs, 9/24/2013
It might be difficult to believe, but the average price of a new vehicle in the United States is approaching $30,000. The new 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid, which starts at $29,945 including a destination charge of $790, is right in that range. In exchange for that sum, Honda supplies a midsize family sedan that's able to get 50 mpg in the city and 45 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA.

When the new Accord Hybrid goes on sale, it will be available in three levels of specification. The standard model, however, is not a stripped-down vehicle. It includes dual-zone automatic climate control, a 10-way power driver's seat, Bluetooth connectivity, text-messaging capability, USB port, and Pandora Internet radio. A set of aluminum wheels and LED running lights are also included in the base price, along with an expanded-view driver's side mirror and Honda's LaneWatch blind-spot information system, which monitors traffic on the right side of the car.

The Honda Accord EX-L Hybrid ($32,695) adds leather seats, a power front passenger's seat, heated front seats, and memory for the driver's seat and mirror settings. This trim level also includes HondaLink connectivity and services, a power sunroof, lane-departure warning system, and a forward-collision warning system.

At the top of the lineup is the Honda Accord Touring Hybrid ($35,695), which includes a navigation system with real-time traffic information and voice-recognition technology, a hard-drive music server, adaptive cruise control, and LED headlights.

Built in Ohio, the new Accord Hybrid is equipped with Honda's new "Earth Dreams" 2-motor hybrid powertrain, which allows the vehicle to operate in one of three modes: solely on electricity for short distances and at lower speeds, solely on the gasoline 4-cylinder engine, or as a gas-electric hybrid vehicle.

Honda says the new Accord Hybrid will go on sale on October 31, 2013.
