2014 Honda Accord named Green Car of the Year winner


Green Car Journal named the 2014 Honda Accord winner of its Green Car of the Year Award for 2014. This award honors the 2014 Accord model in all its iterations, including the Accord, Accord Hybrid, and Accord Plug-In.

Honda’s Accord emerged on top of an exceptional field of finalists including the Audi A6 TDI, BMW 328d, Mazda3, and Toyota Corolla.

According to Green Car Journal, the Accord has evolved in important ways to meet the needs of an increasingly sophisticated and changing market that seeks ever-higher fuel efficiency, lower CO2 emissions, and improved environmental impact, without sacrificing the features and driving experience expected by new car buyers.

The 2014 Honda Accord brings notable efficiency with its conventional gasoline powerplants, and now ups its game with highly-efficient Accord Hybrid and Accord Plug-In hybrid choices that achieve up to 50 highway mpg or, in the case of the Plug-In, 115 MPGe, the highest of any mid-size hybrid sedan in the country.
