2012 Honda Accord Sedan Fuel Economy

Fuel Economy

Considering all the interior space and comfort in the 2012 Honda Accord is, this big sedan has impressive gas mileage.

The Hyundai Sonata and Kia Optima, fully redesigned last year, remain the 2012 mileage champs for this class (among base engines), at up to 24 mpg city, 35 highway. But the 2012 Honda Accord isn't far behind if you choose the four-cylinder model, which is rated at 23/34 in its most popular automatic-transmission combination. Beware, V-6 models aren't nearly as impressive; you might approach 30 mpg on a gentle highway drive, but in city driving the EPA ratings of 17 to 20 mpg seem a little optimistic based on what our editors have seen.

The 2012 Honda Accord is fuel-efficient, but it's not as green as mid-size hybrid or diesel alternatives.

A number of other rivals, including the Ford Fusion, Toyota Camry, and Volkswagen Passat, offer higher-mileage hybrid or diesel variants. Unfortunately, you won't find that in the Accord.
