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

Max I get is 30 average on the highway. With lots of short trips I get a blended MPG of 20. 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
2013 4dr Sedan 278-horsepower 3.5L V6
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

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

Too soon to tell, but past experience has shown strong mpg even with a 6cyl - definitely above 20 with a lot of town/city driving. see full Honda Accord review
2010 4dr Sedan 177-horsepower 2.4L I4
5-speed manual FWD
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
2009 4dr Sedan 190-horsepower 2.4L I4

Car never feels underpowered - in fact will kick from a green light with the best out there, yet return 30 mpg average. Can drive all day for $20 see full Honda Accord review

Average 18-20 mpg for mix city and highway (50/50) driving. I was expecting more of 24-26 but it seems Honda increase size gave more comfort at expense of bad fuel. see full Honda Accord review

The highway fuel economy is very good (30+ mpg). The city fuel economy leaves a bit to be desired (teens). see full Honda Accord review
2008 2dr Coupe 268-horsepower 3.5L V6

The Accord has gained enough weight that their engines no longer return the exceptional MPGs of the preivous model. Honda refuses has no 6 gear transmissions which should help. Fuel economy is average at best. Would never achieve 40mpg as I did before. 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
2003 4dr Sedan 240-horsepower 3.0L V6

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

Low city mileage particularly with A/C (16 mpg). Mediocre hwy mileage at 22/23. see full Honda Accord review
