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.
All Hybrids fell short of their EPA numbers in CR testing(except CR Z). Notice the results are based on more highways miles than city type driving.consumerreports.org/cro/news/2014/06/where-the-honda-accord-and-other-hybrids-come-up-short-in-fuel-economy/index.htm
After reading the reviews for the Ford Fusion; I still prefer my Camry Hybrid. Acceleration is smooth and I actually 45 mpg the other day. The more I drive, the better MPG.
