The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid is not a small car. Given its generous interior space and overall size, 50 mpg city is downright impressive. Honda says that the 2014 Honda Accord has the highest EPA-rated city miles per gallon of any four-door sedan sold in the United States.
Back in June, the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid in city fuel economy was estimated at 49 mpg. Now, we see that the estimate was a little conservative.
“With advanced technologies standard on every Accord Hybrid we’ve given customers an incredible combination of fuel efficiency, technology and value,” said John Mendel, executive vice president of sales at American Honda. “The addition of the Accord Hybrid to the lineup will further advance Accord’s position as America’s most popular passenger car with individual buyers.”
Even the base model comes with a rear-view camera, LED DRL lighting and Lane-watch (blind-spot warning system). According to Honda, Additional standard features include a rearview camera, LED daytime running lights (DRL), an Expanded View Driver’s Mirror, Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®, USB/iPod® integration, Pandora® compatibility, SMS text message function, dual-zone automatic climate control, alloy wheels, a driver’s seat with 10-way power adjustment, and a 160-watt AM/FM/CD audio system” That’s for $29,155 – plus $790 handling charge. The top of the line Honda Accord Hybrid Touring starts at $34,905.
“With EPA fuel-economy ratings1 of 50 mpg city / 45 mpg highway / 47 mpg combined, the 2014 Accord Hybrid is the top rated 4-door sedan in America in the EPA city cycle. Highlighting both form and function, it blends the sophisticated exterior styling and spacious interior packaging of the Accord Sedan with a highly efficient two-motor hybrid system from Honda’s Earth Dreams™ Technology advanced powertrain series.
The 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid is the first Honda hybrid vehicle produced in Ohio, at the company’s Marysville Auto Plant, and joins the Greensburg, Indiana-built Civic Hybrid as the second Honda hybrid model built in the U.S., using domestic and globally sourced parts. Honda invested $18.8 million in a 94,000-square-foot expansion of the Marysville Auto Plant, along with the addition of 50 new full-time jobs to handle the special processes specific to the production of this advanced hybrid model.” – – Honda Media
From what I hear about the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid’s driving feel: it simply feels like it was a quietly composed Accord – like all other Accords. That’s saying something. The Honda Accord Hybrid almost sounds too good to be true.
