Honda Accord Hybrid fuel economy figures fall short of competition

  • Honda Accord Hybrid fuel economy figures fall short of competition

You won't go wrong with either one. As of March 1, dealers had a much-higher-than-normal 104-day supply of Accords. Many dealers are declining further Accord shipments from the factory since their lots are already full of unsold models. Lighter than its predecessor, the 2018 Accord Hybrid comes as standard with a continously variable transmission. Perhaps more surprising is the fact that Nissan sold 39,888 Altimas in the same period, meaning the Accord is now in third place.

While the 2018 Accord Hybrid's fuel figures surpasses most of the competition, it falls short of the segment's best-selling Toyota Camry Hybrid. Toyota has been offering regional lease specials on the Camry that Honda hasn't offered on the Accord, a move that's reportedly made it hard for Honda dealers to get leasees into new Accords. Last-generation Accords were also less expensive, meaning it costs more to lease a new Accord than it did back in 2015. Comparatively, a base Accord with the same three-year lease will be $249/month with $3,199 down. The Camry LE is $219 a month for 36 months with only a $1,999 drive off.

Even with the growing inventory numbers, Honda hasn't made a fast fix to the Accord's lease rates, but does say that it's listening to dealer concerns. "I get if the vehicle needs incentives because of a deficiency in the auto. Period", Brian Benstock, general manager of Paragon Honda in New York City, told Automotive News. "Do we need to have the same incentives that Nissan has or Toyota has?" I don't think so.

The 2018 Honda Accord is plenty thrifty in its gas-only variants, but the 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid trumps 'em both, even though it's not as stingy as it was in its previous iteration.

"We continue to work collaboratively with our dealer partners and appreciate our ongoing dialogue with them to ensure the overall value proposition with each of our products is competitive in the marketplace", A Honda spokeswoman stated in an emailed statement to Automotive News.
