Default 2013 Honda Accord hits 36 MPG highway

From AB






Honda has released official Environmental Protection Agency ratings
for the 2013 Accord. Base models come equipped with a direct-injection
2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with 185 horsepower and 177 pound-feet
of torque. When mated with a new six-speed manual gearbox, the sedan
returns 24 miles per gallon city, 34 mpg highway and 28 mpg combined.

Engineers have also developed a new continuously variable transmission
for peak fuel economy. When paired with the CVT, the four-cylinder
yields 27 mpg city, 36 mpg highway and 30 mpg combined. Those numbers
mark an increase of four mpg city and two mpg highway over the old
automatic, but land the Accord behind the 38 mpg of the 2013 Nissan
Altima.

While the new direct-injection system and transmissions account for a
large portion of that increase, tricks like an electric power steering
system and reworked aerodynamics also help. Sport trim bumps power up
to 189 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque with no significant fuel economy
penalty. Buyers who step into the 278 horsepower 3.5-liter V6 with its
252 lb-ft of torque can look forward to 21 mpg city and 34 mpg
highway. That's an increase of one and four mpg, respectively, which
helps push the six-cylinder to 25 mpg combined.
