The 2014 Honda Accord comes in several models, including the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in which wows owners because of its advanced technology that means you’re stopping for gas far less than any of your neighbors.
In fact, one estimate based on common driving habits has owners only stopping for gas nine times per year!
“If you are a heavy commuter or even someone who just needs a car to get around town, the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in will save you big time in gasoline costs and the time spent at the pump,” said Keith Hofkamp, general manager at Sims Honda dealership in Burlington. “Everyone wants to save money and time. The 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in lets you do both like no other vehicle on the market.”
Depending on your range and/or performance needs, there are three ways to drive the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in: electric only, hybrid and fuel-only modes.
According to this article, “For example, even with some long trips added, the test car averaged 54.1 miles per gallon with a mix of all-electric driving plus city/highway on the gasoline engine. In fact, the federal government’s www.fueleconomy.gov website estimated the tester would only need to stop at the gas station about nine times in a year if driven at its current pattern.”
“If your highest priority is the amount of gasoline your vehicle consumes, then you need to come check out the 2014 Honda Accord Plug-in,” said Hofkamp.

The 2013 Honda Civic is improved in a couple areas, namely the upgrade of interior materials, but one thing that hasn’t changed from previous models is its industry-leading gas mileage. This article goes into detail, but here’s what you need to know if you care about getting a new car with incredible fuel efficiency:
- The 2013 Honda Civic Hybrid gets a combined 44 mpg
- The 2013 Honda Civic with a 1.8 liter HF, five-speed automatic gets 33 mpg (29 city/41 highway)
- The 2013 Honda Civic with a 1.8 liter four cylinder engine automatic (the base Civic) gets 31 mpg combined (28 city/19 highway). If you want a manual, you get 28 mpg combined (28 city/36 highway)
- The Honda Civic Natural Gas (sold in select markets) uses natural gas instead of traditional gasoline. It gets 31 mpg combined (27 city/38 highway).
- The Honda Civic Si with a 2.4 cylinder four-cylinder engine gets 25 mpg combined (22 mpg/31 highway)
As you can see, if gas mileage is a high priority for you, then the Honda Civic is still the car for you. However, 2013 Honda Civic also has improved performance.
According to the article, “As for the driving experience, the 2013 Civic’s modest suspension changes produce nimbler handling without creating an overly-harsh ride. The cabin is a quieter place to spend time, too, thanks to thicker glass and added soundproofing, while the car’s softer dash also seems to help with interior acoustics. Front seats are quite good, especially in light of the car’s price positioning…”
“The 2013 Honda Civic is a great car for commuters, folks who do a lot of road trips, older individuals who don’t need to haul kids around and need an economic vehicle,” said Tony Carter, general manager of Northwest Honda in Bellingham. “The Honda Civic has a record of delivering fantastic gas mileage and the 2013 Honda Civic is no different. With the upgraded materials and performance, the redesign was very successful. Everyone should check out the 2013 Honda Civic.”

The Honda Fit is a hit with critics and consumers alike for its compact nature on the outside, but surprising amount of space on the inside. The Honda Civic was the best-selling car last year, in good part because of its reliable name and gas mileage. The Honda Insight is a relative unknown compared to the Fit and Civic, but obviously one that car-buyers should take a look at, especially if they want a car that’s environmentally friendly and gets fantastic gas mileage.
