2016 Honda Accord Sedan Fuel Economy

Fuel Economy

The 2016 Honda Accord delivers impressive fuel economy, and that's not just with the base engine. We've observed surprisingly good efficiency with the V-6 in real-world driving conditions.

Accord models with a inline-4 have a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and direct injection, and earn an EPA-rated 27 mpg city, 37 highway, 31 combined.

EPA ratings and real-world fuel economy are impressive whether you choose the 4-cylinder model or the V-6.

The thirstiest model—a V-6 equipped Accord Coupe with a manual transmission—manages 18/28/22 mpg. With the aid of variable cylinder management, the V-6 can return up to 34 mpg. We've noted combined numbers approaching 30 mpg in drives of both four-cylinder and V-6 models.

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

The even more efficient Honda Accord Hybrid won't be offered during the 2016 model year.
