So Far, So Good - 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid
By texas22step - November 5 - 6:19 pm
We purchased the Accord Hybrid shortly after its recent arrival at a local dealer, attracted by its 'new' hybrid technology & claimed mileage. We had the chance last weekend to take it on an Interstate highway trip of about 450 miles, and found it to be very comfortable and achieved about 43 mpg on the trip despite driving almost the entire trip at the 75 mph posted speed limit. One can imagine the economy potential for more restrained highway driving. Beyond the comfort and mpg factors, we enjoy the fact that the Accord Hybrid looks like every other Accord on the road - no geeky look like the Prius or other 'green' cars. The build-quality is solid, the design fine. Built in the USA-Ohio!

I would never have traded in my Camry hybrid if I knew the Honda accord hybrid only got 39 mpg. What a disappointment. I have had many Hondas but now I will go back to Toyota.
Great Urban and Suburban Mileage - 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid

I will have had my Accord Hybrid EX-L four weeks tomorrow. I was expecting to buy a Fusion Hybrid last year, but by the time I was able to test drive one in January, reports of mileage far below the EPA ratings were coming out, so I decided to wait for the new Accord Hybrid. I was able to test drive one within a week of release; as soon as I drove it, I knew it was the car I wanted. I had been driving an Acura TL for 9+ years, so the Accord felt somewhat familiar to me. I have not been disappointed in my decision. The car is very nicely finished, handles well, and acceleration is better than expected. The seats are quite comfortable. We have averaged about 48 mpg driving locally.
Bye to Lexus GS, Hello Honda Accord Hybrid Touring. - 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid

I recently owned the Lexus GS AWD 2013 model, but upon learning of the Honda Accord Hybrid touring model, options, styling and reviews, not to mention MPG, I swapped. This new gen Honda is shockingly high end on the inside and outside. If you ignore the badging, you likely would think you were in a something from Acura, Lexus, or possibly Audi. The features and so rich and high end. I was only test driving for fun because of the MPG and I was instantly sold. The tech inside of the this touring model includes a very feature rich GPS, massive connectivity features via bluetooth with my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and the wife's 5s. The Adaptive Cruise is outragous and the blind spot monitor!!!

I love this car! I had the 2010 accord leased and bought the new hybrid it's sleek style and economical gas mileage is my fav features. The power it has at take off it's like if it were a v6 engine. I would never think its that powerful and I thought I would lose power for fuel economy but I was wrong this car has more power than the 2010 Honda. Love it! Thanks honda for an even better car!
1000Miles and counting - 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid
By teegala - March 5 - 11:27 am
I got the car 2 weeks ago and drove around ( Houston to Dallas trip) too. I was driving like a grandma for first 300 miles ( really low acceleration) and there on my friends drove it for 300 miles with full acceleration ( 10+ power bars). At the end of 1000 miles I got 39.2 mpg ( good I would say). Ride is comfortable for the long drives). Once I hit 60mph instant mpg drops to 36 and if I take it beyond 75mph it improves. Touched 85mph with just 3 power bars and ride is still feels smooth ( low noise).
Good MPG, Excellent Features - 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid
By vshands - January 3 - 2:40 am
I've had my hybrid Ex-L for about a month now. I regularly get around 53 mpg city, but my highway mpg runs around 37 even with the econ button on (I have a bit of a lead foot). The mpg is effected more in cold weather than traditional cars. I love how I can put it in electric mode for short trips if the battery is charged enough, its perfect for running to the grocery store. Like another reviewer mentioned, the battery rarely gets fully charged, but does well enough. It doesn't drive like the traditional hybrid (no hesitation) unless you put it in econ mode.
It ain't perfect, but close enough. - 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid

I've had my base Hybrid for a month and put a little over 2K miles on it. It's been amazing so far. I've averaged about 48 mpg so far in mixed driving, which probably be higher if temps didn't drop below freezing which caused me to average about 36 mpg on my current tank. Handling is good for a big sedan, and it feels like it has as much power as my former '04 Accord EX-L V6 Navi. Brakes are smooth and linear, unlike the jerky brakes found on the Prius's I've rented. Seats are supportive and comfortable, and the interior fit and finish is quite good. I find the infotainment system to be decently intuitive. The base audio system is ok, though not great.
2014 Accord Hybrid Touring MPG WTF - 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid
By rsxing - April 18 - 8:29 am
I purchased 2 Honda Accord Hybrid Touring sedans for my house hold and neither one has gotten close to 50 mpg. I installed the HFP 19 wheels with Continental ContiSport 3's on my Touring sedan (from my old Accord coupe) so I can forgive that car of under whelming me in the MPG dept. But with that in mind the car seems to hesitate a lot during highway speeds above 55 MPH. Not sure what sure what the cause of this is. The other car has achieved 42 MPG once and averages 37. The driver of this car is VERY conservative so the problem isn't how the sedan is being driven. I hope that this a break in period thing. Neither car drives in EV mode more than %10 of the time.
10K and still a big fan - 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid
By newhopian - August 27 - 5:32 pm
I just passed 10k miles with my Accord Touring Hybrid, and I remain an enthusiastic owner. Lifetime average mpg is 49, About 1500 miles coming from highway driving. Everything I wrote in my original review remains true, but I have a couple additional observations. l max charge the battery at least twice a day without any problems or new noises. I recently tried driving in "B" instead of "D" and after 300 miles am averaging 53.8mpg vs. the normal 51 I get with local (non-highway) driving. Best speeds for good mpg are 40-50mph. Worst is 35mph and >55mph. Max speed for EV mode is 70 mph. Great mpg in hilly driving, less so in flat areas. AC pulls down mpg if temp is above 85 degrees, not below.
