Honda Offers 40 MPG Cars to Drivers

Honda has a number of vehicles that achieve 40 mpg* or better. Driving a fuel-efficient vehicle offers a greater overall value for drivers and allows them to save at the pump, but it’s also a better choice for the environment. For drivers looking for some of the most fuel efficient cars on the road, including hybrid options, consider the Civic Sedan, the Accord Hybrid, and the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid. As Car and Driver notes, “Honda proves that power and fuel efficiency need not be mutually exclusive,” and all three of these Honda cars also offer drivers versatile interiors and well-equipped cabins plus impressive power and efficiency.

Fuel Economy and the Civic Sedan

The Civic Sedan offers several different trim level options that achieve 40 mpg* on the highway. The Civic Sedan has two engine options and three transmissions. The standard engine is an in-line 4-cylinder and comes as the standard choice in the LX and EX models. The LX model can come paired with a 6-speed manual transmission, or like the EX model, a M-CVT transmission—both options will achieve 40 mpg* on the highway, with the M-CVT performing more efficiently in the city. The upgraded engine option is a turbocharged engine that comes standard in the EX-T, EX-L, and Touring models. The EX-T can come with a choice of the 6-speed manual transmission or an LL-CVT, which is the standard transmission in the EX-L and Touring models. Whichever engine, trim level, and transmission is right for you, with the Civic Sedan you won’t earn less than 40 mpg* on the highway.

  • LX with 6-speed Manual Transmission – 28 city / 40 highway / 32 combined mpg*
  • LX and EX with M-CVT – 31 city / 40 highway / 34 combined mpg*
  • EX-T, EX-L, and Touring with LL-CVT – 32 city / 42 highway / 36 combined mpg*

Fuel Economy and the Accord Hybrid

The Honda Accord Hybrid is another fuel-efficient option for drivers looking for a vehicle that earns 40+ mpg. A hybrid option is available on the EX, EX-L, and Touring models of the Accord sedan and earns up to 47 mpg on the highway and in the city**. It comes paired with an E-CVT transmission and produces a total system horsepower of 212.

  • Accord Hybrid – 47 city / 47 highway / 47 combined mpg**

Clarity Plug-In Hybrid

The 2018 Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is an innovative electric vehicle with a hybrid engine that can exceed electric mile range limits. The Clarity can operate on electric power alone for 47 miles***. After that, the hybrid engine will kick in and achieve 110 miles of gasoline-electric miles per gallon equivalent, or MPGe combined***. When the engine performs by itself, it still earns an impressive gasoline-only efficiency of 44 city / 40 highway / 42 combined mpg***.

  • Gasoline-Electric Miles Per Gallon Equivalent (MPGe, Combined) – 110 miles***
  • Gasoline-Only mpg – 44 city / 40 highway / 42 combined mpg***
