TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Honda Accord

Honda Accord Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2014 We start with the downfall of the first Honda Accord Hybrid: it failed to deliver the mpg people expected from a hybrid. EPA ratings of 24 mpg city, 32 mpg highway were well above the regular V6's 18/26, but not much better than the four-cylinder's 21/31. Genius wasn't needed to discover the root cause: Honda had paired a 16-horsepower electric motor with a 240-horsepower V6 (for a combined 253--the two didn't climax together). Quite simply, the electric motor was too small--it couldn't power the car on its own--and the 3.0-liter gasoline engine was too large (if able to deactivate three cylinders while cruising). Honda hasn't made the same mistake again. The new Honda Accord Hybrid joins a far stronger, 166-horsepower electric motor with a 141-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine for a combined 196 horsepower. For the latter, Honda modified its new, significantly more efficient "Earth Dreams" engine to run, like Ford's and Toyota's hybrids, on the Atkinson-cycle (the intake valves remain open for the first bit of the compression stroke). Honda's big idea isn't with the motor or the engine, though, but in how they are connected to the front wheels. There's no conventional stepped automatic transmission this time around. Nor is the transmission a planetary gearset CVT, as in Ford and Toyota hybrids. Nor is it a belt-and-pulleys CVT, as in the Honda Civic Hybrid. Instead, the new transmission barely warrants the term. It's a one-speed. You won't find a one-speed transmission in any car powered by a conventional engine because a single ratio would be either way too tall for performance at low speeds or way too short for efficiency at high speeds. A conventional engine is only powerful at high rpm but only efficient at low rpm. For acceptable performance and efficiency, a transmission must be able to shift gears to put the engine at whatever rpm is appropriate for the current task (accelerating or cruising). In contrast, electric cars DO tend to have single-speed transmissions, as their motors deliver acceptable efficiency and power over a much wider range. Given that the new electric motor is strong enough to accelerate the Accord on its own, Honda lets it do this up to 43 mph. At that point the fixed transmission ratio is a good match for the gasoline engine, and a clutch engages to connect it to the wheels. (At lower speeds the engine only comes on as needed to charge the battery pack.) Brilliant in its simplicity, this single-speed design dramatically reduces internal friction and weight. The payoff: the new Accord Hybrid is rated 50/45, vs. the Fusion Hybrid's 44/41, the Camry Hybrid's 40/38, and the regular Accord's 27/36. In suburban driving the trip computer reported averages from 38.5 to 54.8, and 43 overall for the week (tying the MKZ Hybrid). I found it fairly easy to crack 50, spectacular for a midsize sedan. see full Honda Accord review
Honda Accord Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearComment
Some people used to buy cars with manual transmissions because of their superior fuel economy. The tables have turned in the past decade, and automatics now tend to be at least as efficient as manuals. Also, when paired with the manual transmission the Accord's V6 loses its fuel-saving cylinder-deactivation feature and spins faster in top gear. So while the V6 with automatic manages EPA ratings of 21 mpg city, 32 highway, the manual does much worse, just 18 city and 28 highway. The trip computer average was 21 for my week with the car (with a one mpg bump from some highway driving the last day). Not awful, but I've seen better from some larger, more powerful, all-wheel-drive cars. The Hyundai manages about the same, 18/27. People who buy either car with a manual transmission do so entirely because they're more involving and consequently more fun to drive. see full Honda Accord review

TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Nissan Altima

Nissan Altima Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2013 The 2007-2012 Altima managed decent fuel economy, but the 2013 does much better. The sedan's EPA city rating is up from 23 to 27 mpg and its EPA highway rating has been bumped from 32 all the way to 38 mpg. The city figure ties the new Accord's for best of any non-hybrid midsize sedan, while the highway figure doesn't need to share the honor. How did they do it? Partly by reducing the Altima's curb weight to a compact-like 3,108 lbs., about 100 below the Accord and Camry and 300 below the new Fusion. But the MVP award likely goes to the continuously-variable transmission (CVT) with an unusually wide 7:1 ratio spread. At 60 mph the four-cylinder engine spins a very relaxed 1,450 rpm. The EPA ratings for the Fusion are lower, especially in city/suburuban driving: 23/36. see full Nissan Altima review

Since the weather gotten warmer, I have been averaging about 35 mph combined mpg which is excellent for a vehicle of this size with a 2.5L four cylinder. The Xtronic CVT transmission is key to obtaining good fuel economy. Once at cruising velocity, engine rpm stays below 1800 rpm at 70 mph and below 1500 rpm at 60 mph.

If you have a 60/40 city-hwy, then you are better off with a hybrid or in this instance a fuel sipper. The car is large, nimble with the power assist and light due to the re-design. I am averaging about 30mpg and if my hwy gets more, I am expecting a 36mpg. This is very much inline with the advertisements by Nissan. see full Nissan Altima review

I have gotten use to the CVT transmission. This transmission is set up to use the engine torque to aid in fuel economy. When you take off from a stop light, you can feel the transmission change (no shifting felt) where the engine rpm is kept low (low rpm) and engine torque pushing the car more than horsepower moving the car. For maximum horsepower, the rpm's have to rise up above 3k rpm. When the rpm is kept low, the engine is not using as much fuel, thus increasing fuel economy. The CVT does a good job at utilizing the engine's torque at low speeds (city driving) to aide in maxing fuel economy. On the highway, it varies the gear ratio's without feeling it shift. You may observe at 70 mph the rpm at 2k rpm. When needing more power or climbing steep hills, you do not feel it shift, but will observe the rpm (tachometer) rising to meet demands for the situation. It you drive it easily, maintaining speed limits, and allow the car time to increase speed, it definitely maximizes fuel economy. It you had a heavy foot and and go zipping around, then you loose economy. But driven easily with a mind on economy, I get approx 32 mpg in this car on the highway and around 25-26 city. If I'm driving "in a hurray" so to speak, I lose about 5-6 mpg all around. see full Nissan Altima review

2009 4dr Sedan 175-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed shiftable CVT FWD
I drive my cars hard and I get an average of 29mpg. This is a 70/30 mix of highway/city (my highway has a lot of stoplights so that is why 30 is so high). Even at high speeds fuel econ is great. see full Nissan Altima review

6-speed shiftable CVT FWD
Fuel economy is not bad, but with gas approaching 4 dollars a gallon, and Nissan recommending premium fuel, it still hurts a bit. Update: I just burned my first tank of regular and could tell no difference at all. (No premium or midgrade available.) see full Nissan Altima review
