2015 Honda Accord Hybrid Interior Review

Note: This interior review was created when the 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid was new.


Interior: 7.2

The 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid earns praise for its spacious and attractive cabin, which is built with materials that look and feel premium. Some also note that build quality is excellent for a midsize car, and that all of the controls on the dash fall close at hand.

  • "With a few exceptions, the materials in the 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid have a high-quality look and feel. The overall design is elegant, and the cabin's tight construction gives a much stronger impression than you'd expect from a workaday family car." -- Edmunds 
  • "Step into the latest Honda Accord, and its 5-passenger cabin will feel familiar yet sophisticated. The familiar part comes from its roominess, excellent outward vision and easy-to-reach controls." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "Inside, in place of the somewhat cluttered dashboard of the last-gen model is a simple and elegant design with an intuitive control layout." -- Left Lane News 
  • "Inside the cabin, the Accord Hybrid's interior is simple and elegant." -- Motor Trend (2014)


The five-seat 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid comes standard with a power-adjustable driver’s seat. Leather upholstery, a power-adjustable passenger seat and heated front seats are available on higher trims. While a few critics report that it’s difficult to find a comfortable seating position in the 2015 Accord Hybrid, most appreciate its spacious front seats and excellent outward visibility from the driver’s seat. The Accord Hybrid’s back seat also earns praise as one of the roomiest and most comfortable in the class. Additionally, some reviewers mention that the 2015 Accord Hybrid’s cabin is well-isolated from road noise.

  • "The front seats are supportive and comfortable." -- Kelley Blue Book 
  • "Occupants in both the front and the rear will find plenty of legroom and shoulder room. The backseat is one of the best in this class due to its combination of space and comfort. Road and tire noise are noticeably low, thanks in part to active noise-cancellation systems." -- Edmunds 
  • "It was also comfortable and not burdened by the cheesy eco-friendly interiors some hybrid cars insist on. No, here you can have comfortable leather seats (standard in EX-L and Touring trim levels) and sleek piano black accents on the dashboard and steering wheel." -- Jean Knows Cars (2014)
  • "From the driver's seat, where we couldn't get the adjustable lumbar support to feel quite right, the first thing we noticed was the Honda's great visibility. The pillars don't get in the way too much no matter where you look." -- Autoblog (2014)

Interior Features

The 2015 Accord Hybrid comes standard with automatic headlights, dual-zone automatic climate control, proximity key, push-button start, Bluetooth, a USB port, an infotainment system with an 8-inch touch screen, a rearview camera, Pandora Internet radio compatibility, hands-free text messaging and Honda LaneWatch, which features a side mirror-mounted camera that monitors passenger side blind spots. Available features include a sunroof, satellite radio, a premium audio system, a 6-inch touch-screen display with HondaLink smartphone app integration, navigation, forward collision alert, lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control.

Test drivers say that the Accord Hybrid’s standard infotainment display provides useful phone and audio information. However, some write that the optional system that adds a touch-screen display replaces conventional buttons with confusing menus. A few reviewers also feel that the Accord Hybrid’s blind spot camera isn’t especially useful in most driving situations.

  • "The touchscreen is sleeker-looking, but you lose the traditional tactile buttons, and the menu structure can be confusing or needlessly complicated at times." -- Edmunds 
  • "Among the nicer touches is a standard 8-inch screen that sits prominently in the dash to relay audio, phone and navigation information." -- Kelley Blue Book 
  • "The infotainment system in the base model we drove wasn't anything special, but served us just fine. We didn't like the way the system wasn't able to display our iPod album art for a few seconds at the beginning of each song, but this is a minor complaint." -- Autoblog (2014)
  • "Honda also uses that screen to display its LaneWatch feature that mounts a camera to the passenger side external mirror. The image will show the car's blind spot, meaning the driver does not need to turn his head 90 degrees to see the blind spot. While a neat piece of technology, I find it mostly pointless. Perhaps the one place it would come in handy is Portland, Ore., where having a peek behind you for bicyclists approaching before making a right-hand turn would come in handy. Other than that, I cannot find a use for it other than to impress passengers." -- Motor Trend (2014)


The 2015 Accord Hybrid has 12.7 cubic feet of cargo space, which is typical for a midsize hybrid sedan. Still, competitors like the Toyota Camry Hybrid have a bit more cargo space. Some reviewers point out that the Accord Hybrid doesn’t have a folding rear seat, which means you can’t expand its cargo space to accommodate larger items.

  • "… there's no fold-down or pass-through functionality built into the rear seat to improve utility. If you think you'll have to frequently carry long cargo items, the Fusion Hybrid or Camry Hybrid might be better choices because of their folding rear seats." -- Edmunds
