2018 Accord Fuel-Efficient Performance
Between work, errands, and the occasional weekend excursion, you’ll most likely put a lot of miles on the Honda Accord. However, the car was meant to be driven, as it has great gas mileage.
It achieves an EPA-estimated 30 city/38 highway MPG, when equipped with a 1.5L 4-cylinder engine and a continuously variable transmission (CVT).1While impressive, you may be interested in even more fuel efficiency. If that’s the case, then you can opt for the Accord Hybrid, which achieves an EPA-estimated 47 city/47 highway MPG.1
Not only can you spend more time on the open road in the Accord, but you’ll find that it’s quite fun to drive. After all, it has sharp steering, handles well, and offers an overall smooth ride.
Available paddle shifters cater to a more thrilling performance. Also, an adaptive damper system controls the action of the suspension, while wheel resonators help minimize road noise. The result is a more refined driving experience.
