Hi y'all. Looks like the new 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid has 'knocked it out of the park' for the mid-sized sedan hybrid segment. I had been looking at the 2013/14 Camry hybrid and the 20142/14 Avalon hybrid, but recently came across some excellent print and video reviews by Alex Dykes which have caused me to reconsider the field, including the Accord hybrid and Fusion hybrid. For access to these print/video reviews, click on the following links:

2013 Avalon and Avalon hybrid link: link title

2013 Ford Fusion hybrid link: link title

2014 Accord hybrid link: link title

Also there is good info on the mid-sized sedan hybrid segment via US News and World Report's Ratings at the following link (to get more info for each car click on 'full review'), where the 2014 Ford Fusion hybrid ranks 1st, the 2014 Accord hybrid ranks 2nd, the 2014 Camry hybrid ties for 3rd (with the Hyundai Sonata hybrid), and the 2014 Avalon hybrid ranks 10th: link: http://usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/cars-trucks/rankings/Hybrid-Cars/

    hi mr jake. i have a quick question. years ago honda vehicles were found to have their odometers reading the mileage faster with lesser distance travelled. for example you travel 8 miles and odometer reading it 10 miles, giving higer gas mileage. i dont know if that is something has been checked. thanks.

    2014 Honda Accord Hybrid vs 2013 Toyota Camry Hybrid vs 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid

    Did not realize until recently that my initial post in this forum did not take so I will re-post it.

    Looks like 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid has knocked it out of the park. Looks like Toyota's pre-eminence in hybrid technology is getting dated when compared to the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid and the 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid, and needs to up it's game.

    Refer to the excellent video reviews by Alex Dykes to see what the Toyota Camry Hybrid and Avalon Hybrid need to do to compete with the new 2014 Accord Hybrid, and the Ford Fusion Hybrids:

    2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid (keep in mind that one of the Fusion Hybrid's problem areas (and all Ford products for that matter) has been it's glitchy My Ford Touch infotainment system designed for Ford by Microsoft, but that will be changing/improving soon as Ford has dumped Microsoft and will be using a fully vetted QNX IVI system soon: (http:// "http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9246597/Why_Ford_is_dumping_Microsoft_for_Blackberry_s_QNX_OS") ); check it out: (http:// "")

    2014 Honda Accord Hybrid MPG #'s Slammed by Consumer Reports!

    As some on the Camry Hybrid board have noted (lester_eng, and rickpoole) there may be something 'fishy' in Honda's mpg claims for their 2014 Accord Hybrid (~ 48 mpg), and now Consumer Reports confirms Honda's inflated mpg claims (CR found ~ 40 mpg vs ~ 48 mpg claimed by Honda) and is highly critical of them for misleading the public (check the following links: (http:// "http://editorial.autos.msn.com/consumer-reports-blasts-honda-accord-hybrid-mpg-claim?icid=autos_5679") , and (http:// "http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/honda/accord/sedan-hybrid-4-cyl.htm"). These reports will definitely cool the hot sales of the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid and call into question the veracity of any future Honda product claims.

    Strange. Plenty of Accord Hybrid reviewers and owners (check YouTube and avoid the dealer reviews) state that they are seeing numbers in line with the EPA tests (in fact, a few claim that it is the only midsize hybrid to be close to its EPA numbers). The two links you note are pretty much one and the same - both refer to the Consumer Reports HAH overview - and in that publication, Consumer Reports admits using their own, significantly different, driving test to derive their "real" MPG numbers. Now one could argue that this test is more representative of everyday driving but, for some, it might not be - it's hard to say.
