The 2014 Honda Accord MPG vs. the 2014 Toyota Camry MPG
Among midsize sedans, the 2014 Honda Accord continues to be a favorite in the Middletown and Mechanicstown areas. Besides offering some of today’s finest features and luxury looks, the 2014 Accord is also powerful and efficient.
Of course, you may also be considering a 2014 Toyota Camry for its efficiency and performance. If you haven’t looked at each vehicle side-by-side just yet, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s a look at the mpg ratings and engine options for the 2014 Honda Accord and 2014 Toyota Camry.
Four-Cylinder Engine With Manual Transmission
The 2014 Honda Accord comes standard with a 2.4L four-cylinder engine. These models produce 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. On the Honda Accord Sport trim, a specialized dual-exhaust system boost output to 189 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque. Paired to the engine is a six-speed manual transmission. With the manual transmission and 2.4L four-cylinder engine, the 2014 Honda Accord LX is rated at 24 mpg city and 34 mpg highway.*
There is no manual option for the 2014 Toyota Camry. For Middletown drivers who like to maintain that personal connection to their vehicle and control shifting, they are out of luck with a Camry.
Four-Cylinder Engine With Automatic Transmission
The 2014 Toyota Camry’s standard engine is a 2.5L four-cylinder engine producing 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque, which is less power than the base engine of the 2014 Honda Accord — and with the engine, there’s only a six-speed automatic transmission. This helps the Camry to a rating of 25 mpg city and 35 mpg highway.
Here’s the thing: the 2014 Honda Accord can be equipped with an even more advanced continuously variable automatic transmission. A CVT has no maximum number of gear combinations, which enables it to deliver better fuel economy than a similar model with just a regular automatic. That’s the case here, as the 2014 Honda Accord LX with CVT and 2.4L four-cylinder engine is rated at 27 mpg city and 36 mpg highway.*
The bottom line is that, when comparatively equipped, the 2014 Honda Accord offers better fuel economy than the 2014 Toyota Camry, and that’s something that Mechanicstown drivers can celebrate.
The advantage of many midsize sedans is the option of adding on a V6 engine. By going with a V6, you’ll have more power at your disposal for those trips from Middletown and Mechanicstown, but fuel economy can be significantly lower in some models. Here’s what both automakers offer:
- 2014 Toyota Camry – The 2014 Camry features a 3.5L V6 engine capable of 268 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque. Compared to the four-cylinder, fuel economy is quite a bit lower at 21 mpg city and 31 mpg highway. These models are also equipped with the six-speed automatic transmission.
- 2014 Honda Accord – The 2014 Honda Accord gives you the option of a 3.5L V6 with 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque. A 2014 Honda Accord Sedan EX V6 with a six-speed automatic transmission is rated at 21 mpg city and 34 mpg highway.*
The bottom line when looking at the V6 engines for these two midsize sedans is that the Accord offers more power and better fuel economy. Usually you don’t get both, but the 2014 Honda Accord isn’t your average car.
