No one wants to waste money on gas, and the 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid lets you get stellar mileage without shouting about it, or making any sacrifices. Come see how normal driving a hybrid can feel at Honda of Superstition Springs in Mesa, AZ, conveniently located not far from Phoenix.
Ford designed the 2015 C-Max and C-Max Energi to be fuel efficient hybrids, and they look it, but their fuel economy is not worth the awkward look of them.
Accord Hybrid vs. C-Max/C-Max Energi Fuel Economy
Considering the main purpose of a hybrid is fuel efficiency, it surprising how much better the Accord is than the purpose built C-Max pair. The EPA rates the 2015 Accord Hybrid at a phenomenal 50 city and 45 highway mpg. Ford’s C-Max rates just 42 city and 37 highway mpg, and the heavier battery of the Energi plug-in variant means it gets just 40 city and 36 highway mpg. The Energi does get an additional 20 miles of all-electric range on a full charge, but is that really worth the hassle of having to plug it in for several hours?
Accord Hybrid vs. C-Max/C-Max Energi Style
Sure, we all like to save money, but no one like to look cheap. The 2015 Honda Accord Hybrid looks exactly like the regular Accord, so no one will ever know you are getting almost twice the mileage in town. The C-Max looks like nothing else on the road, with its tall 5-door hatchback body style, so driving one is pretty much advertising that you drive a hybrid.
Accord Hybrid vs. C-Max/C-Max Energi Space
You get more room for people in the Accord Hybrid too. Passenger volume in the C-Max pair is just 99.7 cubic feet, which is 3.5 cubic feet less than in the Accord. Honda makes good use of it too, with more hip and shoulder room for front and back seat passengers, and an extra 2 inches of leg room in the back seat. You would think the C-Max would have excellent cargo space behind the seat, but it’s not that great. The Accord’s trunk holds 12.7 cubic feet, and stacking cargo floor to ceiling in the rear of the C-Max will give you 24.5 cubic feet (just 19.2 in the Energi), but you won’t be able to see out the back.
