The Honda Accord Hybrid was named to the "Greenest Vehicles of 2017" list from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) for being one of the most environmentally responsible nameplates available to consumers for the 2017 model year and for scoring in the top 1.3 percent of all vehicles scored. The Honda CR-V (1.5L FWD), America's most popular SUV, was also honored by the ACEEE in its "Greener Choices 2017" list for scoring in the top 11 percent of all vehicles.

Vehicles that qualify for the "Greener Choices 2017" list are restricted to widely available gasoline-powered cars and light trucks with automatic transmissions, which showcases the widespread availability of environmentally responsible vehicle choices in many segments of the market. The vehicles are ranked based on a full life-cycle analysis, looking at not only the environmental impacts from driving, but also from the manufacturing and end-of-life recycling of the vehicle.
