  1. Thank you very much for your frank review. I've been following the Accord hybrid for couple of months now with intention to buy but the CVT and other reviews claiming significantly worse fuel performance are changing my mind. You are not the first to highlight this discrepancy and I'm getting very suspicious.

    If I'm going to pay such a significant premium for this Accord hybrid it's because of expected fuel efficiency supported by the drivers' reviews not its hybrid badge or how green the car is.

    I live in Ottawa, Canada. We have winter here…… as do many other places in North America. If Accord hybrid can't deliver stated efficiency even in California ( I've seen reviews there also) then I think this needs to be investigated asap before buyers are mislead again as has been the case with Hyundai.

    If this is mostly due to winter conditions, Honda should qualify this as so as most of its markets are not in the tropics.

  2. Well, well. Many thanks for a real review of the Accord Hybrid.

    You're fortunate in getting to drive this car, because Colonial Motors in Halifax haven't even got one in yet. But 7.0 l per 100 klicks is not much to crow about if it was in that two week thaw we had recently. I got 10.5 in my Legacy GT and it's AWD and boost hungry, plus I admit I let it warm up before driving off. These old bones …

    Disappointing indeed, because great mileage is the only reason to buy this over a regular Accord, and they seem to be in the 8 range.

    Now I think I'll test drive it just to see how weird it really is. Couldn't care less about back seat folding, wanted a technical marvel because I'm an engineer.

    Oh well.

  3. This is a really interesting review. I decided to comment here because I own this car since January and I cannot understand how the reviewer achieve such poor mpg, in "mild weather" at that.
    I live in Montreal's suburb and driven in much worse conditions; winter fuel blend, snow, extreme cold and on top of that, I am on winter tires. Still, I get better numbers than the reviewer. So far I have an average of 6.6L/100km, which I consider good in the conditions I encountered. When looking at individual trips, I routinely see between 5.6L to 5.9L. I even recorded a 130km pure highway trip at 5.7L.
    I admit that I will be very disappointed if I don't average in the low 5L/100km next summer, which I am quite optimistic will be achieve. Until then, I think the car is doing pretty well in winter conditions.

    People should realize that it takes very little to affect fuel economy and it is impossible to achieve top fuel economy numbers in winter driving conditions, no matter if it's a hybrid car or not. Maybe hybrid cars are more affected by winter, I do not know. What is guarantee is even the standard Accord would not achieve published mpg in winter.
    Roman suggested that Honda publicize fuel economy for non tropic markets. Why would they do so? No car manufacturer do it; it just falls under the "depending on driving conditions" disclaimers.

    One more thing, no matter how conservative magazine car reviewers say they drive the car, I think the car reviewers don't really focus on mpg figures but more on car's performance.

    It takes discipline each time you get behind the wheel to achieve top fuel economy marks.

  4. It's all weather and driving, many others found much better economy: "Journalists who were trying to win Honda's efficiencychallenge for the day managed to get the in-dash display to
    show under 3L/100km (80 mpg)." –

  5. I own 2007 camry hybrid, regular driving is using about 6.5l/100 (bit of city and hwy at 120km/hr). If I drive on country roads cruising at 50 km/hr, then it uses around 4.5l/100 (gas motor, is only running 30% of the time). Possibly if you run your accord 50km/hr you'd get better then 4l/100?

  6. Weather improved significantly the last few weeks, rarely breaking over 0 Celsius though. Still, I put 896km on my last tank and I got 5.6L/100 average; roughly half city, half highway. I had many low 5L/100, high 4L/100 trips on warmer days.
    I took off the winter tires last weekend and put back the LRR tires. It was 4 Celcius yesterday and I got 4.4L/100 on a medium city trip.
    Breaking 4L/100 is a tall order I think. But I feel getting a full tank average, that is around 950km, at 5L/100 on my regular driving (30% city) is quite achievable with the improving weather.
