The Honda Accord remains a personal favourite so for our Birthday Celebrations this year, we could think of no better companion in our travels and adventures! The 2022 Accord Hybrid Touring is near-perfection.
Powered by its 2.0-litre, 16-valve, Atkinson cycle DOHC, i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine and a combined total horse power of 212 @ 6200 rpm. We never cease to be amazed how silent the engine is upon its push-button start and that beautiful hum is nothing short of hypnotic!
We’re all about Fuel Economy always, and the 2022 Honda Accord Hybrid Touring tallies-in at 5.0/5.0/5.0 L/100 km (City/Hwy/Combined), continuing to place Honda heads and shoulders above the competition for value. I drove it, I saw it for myself. Three days of driving around and we barely saw the fuel meter drop.
Many of the amazing driver-conscious sensibilities continue in this latest rendition of our favourite. Proximity Entry for one is something we can’t live without and it continues to be a stress reliever. Intuition and detail are also given to the Passenger and we can’t say how much the Accord Hybrid Touring‘s Dual-zone automatic climate control with air-filtration system means to our guests. We all have different levels of comfort. I for one on these chilly autumn days will be using that seat warmer but know for a fact I live for that seat cooler in the Summer. The Accord Hybrid Touring has both!
It also comes with 19″ aluminum-alloy wheels and a tire repair kit! The Adaptive Damper System is something of a newer feature and for those who aren’t familiar, it can adjust suspension stiffness changes in a split second, to both smooth the ride and sharpen handling according to driving conditions. Exterior details are subtle and sophisticated, like a chrome grille, upper shutter grille, rain-sensing wipers, folding door mirrors (for those tight parking spots downtown especially), LED headlights, foglights, brake lights and tail lights.
And we love ourselves a gorgeous one-touch moonroof. Another bonus point for the 2022 Honda Accord Hybrid Touring!
A huge part of our driving experience is the audio component. Our entertainment on those drives is such an integral part of our daily drives. The car comes with a 452-watt AM/FM Premium audio system with MP3/Windows Media® Audio playback capability, plus 10 speakers including subwoofer. It’s got all the options: SiriusXM™, Wireless Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™ and Bluetooth Streaming Audio for all our playlists and podcasts. And it’s so easy to stay charged and connected with a wireless charging plate near the Driver’s seat, plus many outlets for our guests.
The Honda Accord Hybrid Touring does sit a little low, which is where its Driver’s seat with 12-way power adjustment including 4-way power lumbar support and position memory help give us not only a comfortable drive, but also that perfect vantage point when driving.
Safety will always be a deal-breaker for us. Once again, Honda is giving us their i-SRS airbag system (front), side curtain airbags, front knee airbags and SmartVent™ side airbags. The vehicle also boasts Honda‘s exclusive Next-Generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure. This body design uses a network of front frame structures to absorb and deflect the energy from a frontal collision.
Don’t forget its Lane Keeping Assist System, Blind Spot Information (BSI) system and Rear Cross Traffic Monitor system too! Its Multi-angle rearview camera with dynamic guidelines ensures we park well and reverse safely. And we can’t stress how reassuring it is that the Honda Accord Hybrid Touring is guarded with a Walk-away door lock to eliminate those doubts. Theft is very much on our minds of late and this gets rid of one more worry. The childproof locks when you dont have a kid, however can be a bit much when you just want proximity entry when you left something in the back seat.
The 2022 Honda Accord Hybrid Touring starts at $44,090 CAN. More here.
Let’s take a walk down memory lane. So appreciate the 2022 Honda Accord Hybrid Touring being there to celebrate with us!
