2015 Honda Accord vs. Its Competition

2015 Honda Accord Hybrid
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

The most likely competitors for the 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid are the other three mid-size sedans offered as high-mileage hybrids too: the Ford Fusion, Toyota Camry, and Hyundai Sonata.

The Camry invented the segment, and has been restyled with a more aggressive look for 2015; the Fusion stays the same handsome, competent sedan and is doing well in the market; and the Sonata is a carryover model for 2015, using the previous-generation body even as the gasoline Sonata is all-new.

Then there's the Toyota Prius, the quintessential hybrid, which continues to deliver the highest gas mileage of any gasoline car, along with a love-it-or-hate-it shape.

Then on the plug-in hybrid front, there's the Ford Fusion Energi, Toyota Prius Plug-In, and Chevy Volt.

The Prius has the lowest electric range of any car with plug: 11 miles, only 6 of them continuous, although it does have the highest gas mileage.

The Fusion Energi has been gaining steam lately, with 19 miles of range, and the Volt range-extended electric car offers 38 miles of range and all-electric running under any circumstances--and will be updated next year.

Quick Specs
8.4
The 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid is a handsome sedan that delivers high gas mileage under real-world conditions; its biggest disappointment has been how few of them Honda is making.
7.6
The 2015 Chevrolet Volt remains the only range-extended electric car, and Chevy hasn't done a good job of explaining it, but if you can live with four seats, it's smooth, quiet, comfortable--and one way into the future of cars.
7.8
The 2015 Toyota Camry ups its game with a thorough refresh that, while not daring, makes it more enjoyable for driver and passenger alike.
7.2
The 2015 Toyota Prius is still the most fuel-efficient gasoline car on the market, at 50 mpg; its iconic hatchback shape offers a spacious interior that can seat five, though the handling is nothing to write home about.
