The 2021 Honda Accord Hybrid sports a 2.0L four-cylinder engine and an AC synchronous permanent-magnet electric motor under the hood. The electric motor gives it that low-end oomph that many other non-hybrid sedans lack. What elevates the 2021 Honda Accord Hybrid over the 2021 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, though, are the available suspension dampers, for a smoother (or stiffer, if you prefer) ride, and the extra grip from the available 19-inch tires.
