Whether you opt for the four-cylinder engine or the V-6, the 2014 Honda Accord gets great mileage--by the ratings, or by what we've seen in real-world road tests.

Four-cylinder Accords, with their continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), and direct-injection, earn up to 36 mpg highway (and an excellent EPA city rating of 27 mpg). V-6 models haven't been left out of the gains, though; they put to use measures like variable cylinder management (VCM) and now achieve up to 34 mpg highway.

Press the Econ button in the Accord and you get a set of fuel-saving measures that include more conservative accessory use (like A/C) and softened throttle response.

In drives of both four-cylinder and V-6 models, we've seen real-world combined numbers approaching the 30-mpg mark.

The 2014 Honda Accord Plug-In Hybrid and Accord Hybrid models are covered by a separate review; they use a lean 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, plus lithium-ion battery pack and a new two-motor hybrid system that can operate in three different modes, including full-electric operation. Altogether, it's EPA-rated at 50 mpg city. The only sacrifice in packaging (and functionality) is that you get a bit less cargo space.

Conclusion

Thanks to a CVT and direct injection, the most popular four-cylinder models achieve 36 mpg highway; but even V-6 models get an impressive 34 highway..

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
