For 2005, Honda started offering a hybrid version of the Accord with a V6 engine, a first in the segment.

And calling it speedy was no lie. It's faster than all of the other Accords, hitting 60 in jut 7.0 seconds! Holy econo-sedan guacamole!

The power is present on the race track, which, of course is the Accord's natural habitat. But when you put it on a road, it still performs valiantly. It sounds like one smooth operator.

Ok, enough of me prattling on. Check out this hybrid luxuriousness as it cruises around Maryland.
