Honda has won the mileage rating crown in the midsize sedan field with the impending release of the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid boasting a 50 miles-per-gallon rating. The Accord Hybrid’s rating is three miles better than the rating of the Ford Fusion Hybrid, and seven and ten more than the ratings of the Toyota Camry Hybrid and the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid respectively.

In fact, the new Honda Accord Hybrid is so light on the sauce that it is 10 percent more efficient on the gas than is the original Toyota Prius, while being a staggering 236 percent less smug. It, like many green cars due to come out in the 2014 model year, is getting its bump in fuel efficiency thanks to its ability to recharge its batteries while being stopped in traffic.

The thinking heads at Honda believe that the Accord’s fuel efficiency rating will really set it apart from its competition. Mike Accavitti, senior vice president of auto operations at American Honda, said, “Even before it hits showrooms this fall, the Accord Hybrid is already surpassing the competition and claiming segment leadership. For customers looking for a 50 mpg-rated four-door sedan, there is no other choice than the 2014 Accord Hybrid.”
