Albany-area drivers shopping for a new mid-size car should be concerned about fuel economy, but are the 2015 Toyota Camry mpg ratings really the best you can do for a mid-size sedan? Believe it or not, there’s a vehicle that bests the Camry in both fuel economy and power: the 2015 Honda Accord. Available now at Capital Region Honda Dealers, the latest Accord has one of the most fuel-efficient and powerful four-cylinder engines on the market.
Let’s see how the Camry stacks up.
Honda’s Earth Dreams Powertrains Push the Envelope
There’s one key idea behind Honda’s Earth Dreams engines: fuel economy. By building a better engine – be it four-cylinder, V6, or hybrid – Honda aims to make their vehicles more efficient, reducing their impact on the environment and letting you drive longer on a budget. On fuel economies, every little bit counts, and the Accord places itself just far enough ahead of the Camry that we think it’s worth mentioning:
- The 2015 Honda Accord LX CVT earns an EPA-estimated 36 highway and 27 city mpg for 31 mpg combined.* Despite the fuel efficiency, the 2.4L four-cylinder engine is rated at 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque.
- The 2015 Toyota Camry also has a four-cylinder engine, but its powertrain is rated at 35 highway and 25 city mpg for 28 mpg combined. And when it comes to power, the Camry falls short there as well, only offering 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque.
If you’re looking for more power, the Accord also has a V6 engine available. 2015 Honda Accord EX-L V6 Sedans are rated at an EPA-estimated 34 highway and 21 city mpg, for 26 mpg combined,* and receive a power boost up to 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque.
