TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the 2012 Honda Accord

2012 Honda Accord Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2013 Along with providing excellent performance for a non-turbocharged four-cylinder in a midsize sedan, the new powertrain also achieves excellent fuel economy, 27 mpg city and 36 highway in the EPA's testing. The Nissan Altima does a little better (27/38), but everyone else lags. see full Honda Accord review
2012 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

2013 4dr Sedan 278-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed automatic FWD
Outstanding fuel economy. Regularly exceeds EPA estimates. Recent 100 mile highway trip with no AC produced 37.2 mpg. Unbelievable for V6. see full Honda Accord review

6-speed automatic FWD
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
2011 4dr Sedan 190-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Excellent fuel economy, 24 around town and up to 36 on the interstate and as high as 38 on two lane roads. I have gotten over 700 miles to a tank on long trips. see full Honda Accord review

During mostly Interstate driving, I achieve 32-34 MPG (calculated manually). see full Honda Accord review
