American Honda has recently confirmed that the series of tests conducted by the company have found out that the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid has obtained 50 miles per gallon ratings when driven on the city and this would most likely beat the highest ratings that was posted by one of its closest competitors which is already offered for sale in the market.
According to the information that American Honda has relayed recently, the company’s personnel who were involved in testing the 2014 version of the Accord Hybrid have found out the vehicle will most likely obtain the estimated fuel economy ratings of 50 miles per gallon in the city, 43 miles per gallon on the highway and 47 miles per gallon combined.
Based on these figures, American Honda believes that the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid has beaten the 43 miles per gallon in the city and the 39 miles per gallon on the highway ratings that the 2013 Toyota Camry Hybrid has established. Given this claim, Honda somehow hints that the upcoming version of the Accord Hybrid will most likely become a better option for hybrid car buyers particularly those who are planning to purchase the 2013 Toyota Camry Hybrid.
But aside from hinting that the Accord Hybrid has beaten the Camry Hybrid’s established ratings, Honda has also stressed that the former’s MPG rating in the city has actually exceeded the 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid’s 47 miles per gallon in the city mark. However, Honda in most of its statements refused to exactly mention the Ford Fusion Hybrid’s name. Instead, the carmaker presented its claim by providing a statement which states that the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid’s fuel economy rating in the city is “three miles per gallon higher than the closest segment competitor.”
But despite of its higher city MPG, it was also found out that the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid has failed to exceed the 2014 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid’s highway MPG rating. The Accord Hybrid has only posted the rating of 45 miles per gallon on the highway while the 2014 Volkswagen Jetta Hybrid obtained the rating of 48 miles per gallon on the highway.
