TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the 2018 Honda Accord

2018 Honda Accord Real Gas Mileage: Pros
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
