TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Honda Accord

Honda Accord Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2018 Back in the 1970s and 1980s, many people initially bought a Honda for fuel efficiency. In my suburban driving with the latest Accord, I often observed trip computer averages in the upper 30s. In two drives the averages topped 40 mpg, a highly impressive figure for a car with the Accord's performance and interior space. The tested car, a Sport with the manual transmission, actually has the lowest EPA fuel economy ratings of any 2018 Accord with the base, turbocharged 1.5-liter engine: 26 mpg city and 35 mpg highway. The automatic Sport achieves 29 / 35, the non-Sport 30 / 38. Opt for the turbocharged 2.0-liter and the EPA ratings are 22 / 32 for the Sport and Touring, 23 / 34 otherwise. The Sport scores worse in each case due to wider, grippier tires. The best the previous Accord could manage: 27 / 36. The base trim Toyota Camry L, while retaining a larger non-turbo engine, outscores the Accord in the EPA's highway test (41 mpg) but can't quite match the Honda in the city test (29 mpg). Other trim levels with the 2.5-liter engine don't fare as well, scoring 28 / 39. With its optional 3.5-liter V6 engine the Camry manages a tie with the Accord 2.0T. That the Camry and Accord score so similarly suggests that turbocharging isn't necessary for top EPA ratings. The highest EPA mpg ratings earned by the Accord and its competitors: Honda Accord (1.5T): 30 / 38 Toyota Camry (2.5, L only): 29 / 41 Hyundai Sonata (1.6T): 28 / 37 Nissan Altima (2.5): 27 / 38 Chevrolet Malibu (1.5T): 27 / 36 Mazda5: 27 / 35 VW Passat (2.0T): 25 / 36 Ford Fusion (1.5T): 23 / 34 For even better fuel efficiency, wait for the new Accord hybrid, which will arrive in early 2018. Its EPA ratings should be in the low 50s. The redesigned Toyota Camry hybrid, already available, achieves 51 / 53. 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

TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Kia Optima

Kia Optima Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2013 Many auto makers are substituting turbocharged fours for V6s because of their theoretically superior fuel economy. The Kia Optima SXL earns EPA ratings of 22 mpg city, 34 highway. The similarly turbo-foured Ford Fusion comes close, 22/33. The most fuel efficient V6, in the new Honda Accord, manages 21/34 without paddle shifters, but 21/32 with them. Trip computer numbers suggest a one-to-two mpg advantage for the Kia in real-world suburban driving--perhaps too close to call since these devices aren't terribly precise. Figure just under 20 with a heavy foot, mid-20s if you resist the temptation, and just over 30 with a very light foot and luck with the lights. All of these figures are with the engine warmed up. In cold weather, fuel economy is in the mid-teens for the first mile or two. An eco mode makes little noticeable difference in either how the car drives or its fuel economy. These numbers don't seem particularly good? Recall that the Kia Optima SXL is a very quick car. You won't find a 274-horsepower sedan that does better without the aid of a battery pack. see full Kia Optima review

I find fuel economy, in mixed driving, to be on par with a V6 of comparable power. I usually get about 24 MPG in combined driving. However, on a recent road trip, I had 32 MPG on one tank. It's perhaps slightly better than the Acura TL I had, but one big bonus: the Acura required premium unleaded. On the Kia Optima, however, the manufacturer only calls for regular unleaded. Over time, that can mean a significant savings. see full Kia Optima review

This is my biggest (and only real) complaint with the Optima. It advertises fuel economy of 22 city, 34 highway. I drive a lot (100 mile round trip daily, with more than half of it being highway miles). Admittedly, I have a heavy foot, but I regularly get about 24-25 mpg combined, with the car in ECO mode. The best tank of gas I ever got was a little over 28 mpg. (I calculate it manually, don't rely on the on-board MPG estimates, as they are always 3-5 MPG more generous than reality.) see full Kia Optima review
