Three other mid-size sedans offering hybrid versions are the likely competitors for the returning Accord Hybrid: the Ford Fusion, Hyundai Sonata, Kia Optima, and Toyota Camry.
The Fusion got a very mild restyle for 2017, and an updated infotainment interface.
The Sonata and Optima were redesigned this year, so they're a little fresher; they use identical hybrid hardware, While the Camry invented the hybrid sedan segment, and was restyled for 2015 as well, it's now fallen behind the others in both gas mileage and performance.
The highest fuel economy of all is delivered by the latest Toyota Prius, now in its fourth generation.
Its combined ratings reach new highs: 52 or 56 mpg combined, depending on model.
The styling is an acquired taste, however, but it's now far more "normal" and pleasurable to drive.
If you want a normal-looking mid-size sedan with a trunk, however, the Prius's love-it-or-hate-it shape and hatchback body may be a deal-breaker.
