The Car Connection Expert Review

Honda says it will stop building Accord Hybrids when the current-generation car is replaced later this year.

The new-generation Accord will not have any hybrid option, a Honda spokesman confirmed to CNN. "We have found that our hybrid system works better on smaller cars," the spokesman told the news channel.

 

Honda says it’s planning a new hybrid car for 2009; that new model is expected to be much closer to the previous Insight Hybrid, and more along the lines of Toyota’s compact Prius hybrid — a stand-alone model rather than a hybrid powertrain grafted on an existing model.

 

Honda also is working on a new clean diesel engine that will not require an after-treatment, but will instead use a new type of catalytic converter that’s more efficient at cleaning diesel emissions.

 

While Toyota’s Camry Hybrid will continue — it captures 14 percent of Camry sales, according to CNN — Honda’s clean diesel engines will likely be offered as fuel-saving options in its larger vehicles, as in its European Accords.

This car absolutely delivers when it comes to the fuel economy they advertise. My worst tank of gas has been 48 mpg and my best 56. What I think needs work on this car is the quality of the paint job which is... + More »
