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

Great fuel economy. I have the V6 and I usually average between 28 and 29 mpg overall. I do mostly highway driving and some suburban roads. And I'm usually doing about 70-80 mph on the highway, so you can do even better if you were to be driving 55-60 mph. see full Honda Accord review

Given the size of the car, particularly the interior room, the 30+ highway MPG is impressive. I consider anything over 30 highway to be economical enough for me. Another benefit is that around-town mileage is still decent, 26-27 mpg. see full Honda Accord review

the V-6 only gets 18-19 MPH around town, though this is offset by more power. see full Honda Accord review

Honda struggles to get 18 in the city (usually gets between 14-18), but highway it is pretty good for a V6 and can get between 26-30 mpg. see full Honda Accord review

TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Volkswagen Passat

Volkswagen Passat Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2015 Though as powerful as the 170-horse 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine it replaced, and stronger through the midrange, the Passat's new 1.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine earns significantly better EPA fuel economy ratings: 24 mpg city and 35 mpg highway vs. 22 and 32, respectively. Fitted with the six-speed automatic transmission, the difference widens: 24/36 vs. 22/31. Alas, the Mazda6 scores a bit higher: 25/37 with a six-speed manual and 26/38 with a six-speed automatic. In my real-world driving, I observed similar numbers in both cars, and the Passat managed the highest observed one-time average on my standard route to my son's school: 39.9 mpg. The Mazda's best on this route was 38. More typically I observed averages in the low 30s when driving both cars casually in the suburbs. Push them, and averages can fall into the mid-20s, even the low-20s. On the highway, the Passat's trip computer reported an average of 35, the Mazda6's an average of 36. Too close to call. What is clear is that both sedans deliver much better fuel economy than could be expected when the current Passat was introduced three years ago. This said, those seeking to maximize fuel economy, and who drive enough miles to offset a higher initial cost, have an even better option in the Passat's available diesel engine. The TDI engine has been further improved for 2015. It now peaks at 150 horsepower rather than 140. And it now rates 30/44 mpg with a six-speed manual transmission and 30/42 with a six-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission; plus owners often beat the EPA ratings. see full Volkswagen Passat review

2013 4dr Sedan turbocharged 140hp 2.0L I4 Diesel
6-speed manual FWD
really exceedes my expectations. based on what i read and the fact that i do 95% hwy driving i expected to exceed the epa estimate of 43 mpg. in reality i can obtain upwards of 54mpg (computer) or ~51 mpg (corrected) on rural highways (62mph) and 47mpg on interstates (75mph) without a problem. that is in the neighborhood of a 10-20% improvement ABOVE epa estimates. simply amazing. see full Volkswagen Passat review

Great gas mileage...I commute about 45 miles a day for work (all highway) and I average about 33 mpg. Plus, the car does not require premium fuel, which is an added bonus. see full Volkswagen Passat review

As an 8 cylinder engine, the overall fuel economy is not as good as the Passat 6 or 4 cylinder versions. Expect, on average, to get 18 mpg city and 22 mpg highway with a mixed of around 19-20mpg. 21 Gallon tank can be quite expensive to fill. see full Volkswagen Passat review

Averaging 21mpg in suburban/highway driving for a long time... not so great. A high-torque engine and heavy chassis requires lots of gallons of premium fuel. see full Volkswagen Passat review
