Honda Automobiles: 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid: Interior


The Accord Hybrid shares much of its interior design with the current-generation Accord EX sedan, which made its debut as a 2013 model. This new generation reflects a level of luxury and craftsmanship never before seen in the Accord and combines welcoming comfort with an impressive new range of standard and available technologies. Best-in-class interior volume, redesigned seating and features such as dual-zone climate control enhance passenger comfort inside the cabin, and the controls and instrumentation have been simplified for more intuitive control. The Accord Hybrid interior is distinguished by a black steering wheel garnish and unique hybrid instrumentation.

In other respects, the Accord Hybrid interior is identical to other Accord models. A bright, full-color 8-inch (diagonal) “intelligent” Multi-Information Display (i-MID) serves as the control center for many electronic functions. The i-MID screen displays the image from the standard backup camera, fuel efficiency information, audio functions, and LaneWatch™ feature, which can help drivers on busy multi-lane roads by displaying a wide-angle view of the roadway on the passenger side of the vehicle.

A new audio system with touchscreen is standard in EX-L and Touring grades and features a Pandora® interface, and a convenient SMS text messaging5 function that can read incoming texts aloud and allow the driver to respond with factory preset text messages. A Bluetooth®6 HandsFreeLink® phone interface adds intuitive hands-free calling convenience. The Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ with Voice Recognition and FM Traffic is available. The available HondaLink™ technology works with the owner’s compatible smartphone to connect the Accord Hybrid with music and other media sources, internet apps, roadside assistance and more to help improve the driving experience.

As with the conventionally powered Accord, the Accord Hybrid EX-L and Touring have Forward Collision Warning (FCW) systems to advise the driver when the system determines a collision with a vehicle detected ahead potentially exists. The Lane Departure Warning (LDW) system will alert the driver with audio and visual alerts if the driver begins to move out of a detected lane without using the turn signals. The line-topping Accord Hybrid Touring features Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), which can regulate the Accord Hybrid’s speed to maintain a pre-set following interval between it and a vehicle detected directly ahead.

The Accord Hybrid has unique instrumentation that blends analog and digital elements for a sophisticated and technical appearance. The centrally positioned analog speedometer is the largest feature in the instrument cluster. A high-contrast color Multi-Information Display (MID) is positioned in the center of the speedometer and provides a range of information and trip computer functions. It also displays Hybrid energy flow, Eco Guide and Eco Score information. Illuminated Eco Assist arcs on each side of the speedometer indicate when the vehicle is being operated efficiently. The speedometer is flanked by a digital power use meter and gear position indicator on the left, and by digital battery charge and fuel level indicators on the right.
