February 29th, 2016 by

2016 Honda AccordThe 2016 Honda Accord mpg ratings are exceptional with either of its two engines and transmission options, so Boulder and Denver drivers can spend less time at the gas pump. Whether you’re in search of a capable sedan that showcases phenomenal efficiency or a tremendous V6-powered performer, the Accord has an option to meet your needs.

The Standard Engine

The 2016 Honda Accord offers Boulder and Denver drivers one of the most powerful entry-level engines in the sedan segment. The 2.4L four-cylinder is able draw upon 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque.

That kind of output means that handling remains precise, cruising remains capable, and acceleration remains responsive, so the vehicle offers a drive optimized for both highway and city use. Efficiency is similarly impressive; with the 2.4L engine, the 2016 Accord LX can achieve up to 27 mpg in the city and 37  mpg on the highway* with a CVT (continuously variable transmission) or 23 mpg city and 34 mpg highway* with a six-speed manual.

The 2016 Accord Sport

The Sport trim provides the opportunity for a track-inspired drive without upgrading all the way up to the Accord’s available V6 powerhouse. The same 2.4 four-cylinder is able to harness a greater amount of power thanks to the trim’s less restrictive dual exhaust, boosting your output to 189 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque.

It’s available with a sic-speen manual transmission or a CVT with paddle shifters. With the CVT, the 2016 Accord Sport can achieve up to 26 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway.*

The V6

The 2016 Honda Accord is an exceptional family vehicle; but for those who need to combine that type of practicality with high-end performance, there’s the available 3.5L V6. It’s capable of putting you in command of up to 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque.

That’s one of the fastest times available in this segment, but it doesn’t seem to come at the cost of fuel economy. Drivers of the V6-equipped 2016 Accord can expect up to 21 mpg city and 34 mpg highway with a six-speed automatic transmission.
