2014 Honda Accord Named Green Car of the Year

Honda’s mid-size sedan was just named the 2014 Green Car of the Year here at the 2013 L.A. Auto Show.

The car is offered with a variety of fuel-efficient powertrains including the four-cylinder model equipped with a CVT that returned the best real-world fuel economy during AutoGuide.com’s mid-size sedan shootout earlier this year. There is also still a V6 option, which isn’t particularly fuel friendly, but it’s the exception at this point.

There are also hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants available. Honda advertises that the Accord Hybrid can offer up to 50 mpg in the city and 47 on the highway while the plug-in hybrid version promises an ambiguous 115 MPGe. Like theoretical income, that number doesn’t mean much in real-world conditions, but the point is that it’s highly-efficient.

Competition was stiff this year. The Audi A6 TDI and BMW 328d were both finalists, as were the 2014 Mazda3 and Toyota Corolla.
