Hybrid is very fast with the 250+ HP engine
Great gas mileage, consistently around 30MPG in 85% city driving.
Reliability & durability
Honda has an excellent reputation of reliability and so far so good...
Very quiet interior, with radio and climate control off the engine can barely be heard
Brand reputation & image
Honda has a good reputation of quality
Bland styling compared to my 2002 Saab 9-3 that was replaced in buying the Accord Hybrid
Bland interior styling except the dash guages in comparison with the Saab
Materials & workmanship
Poor quality interior materials when compared to the Saab. Everything on the Saab was very well made with high quality materials. The Honda doesn't compare.
No turbo :( although the electric motor sometimes kicks in much like a turbo would
Missing features such as: auto door locks, auto headlights, one-touch sunroof operation, trip computer, auto dimming side mirrors, night panel, lighted glovebox, cooled glovebox, cooled seats, rear heated seats, etc
