Hybrid Honda Accord Sedan: Price and Trims

If the price of a hybrid sedan has put you off in the past, the 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid should make you reconsider. The new MSRP starts at $25,100**, which works out to a $4,505 drop compared to the previous model.

Beyond stretching your money further, the new Honda Accord Hybrid delivers a greater array of options. Five available trim levels now include:
