Fuel-Efficient Cars in Central Missouri

  • 2016 Honda Accord

    “Show us your fuel-efficient cars.” We hear it all the time at Mid-Missouri Honda Dealers, but it’s not that easy. Honda vehicles are some of the most efficient on the market, with many of them outclassing their competitors. We want to take a look at the most efficient vehicles of the current Honda lineup, which brings us to a Civic, an Accord, a Fit, and a new hybrid.

Efficient Gasoline Engines

Even with remarkably fuel-efficient hybrid cars in the world, the demand for fuel-efficient cars with gasoline engines hasn’t faded. Honda’s reputation for building some of the most economical cars on the market continues with three efficient, non-hybrid cars: the Civic, the Accord, and the Fit.


2016 Honda Civic EX-T

As the start of the 10th generation of the car, the 2016 Civic takes everything drivers have loved about it and amped things up. The new 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder is found on the 2016 Civic EX-T and higher trim levels, with sedan models earning an EPA-estimated 42 mpg on the highway and 31 mpg in the city* in addition to the 174 hp.

2016 Honda Accord LX Sedan

The 2016 Honda Accord LX Sedan, on the other hand, has a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine with 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque; models with a continuously variable transmission are rated at an EPA-estimated 37 highway and 27 city mpg.*

2016 Honda Fit LX

If you want something a bit more flexible than a sedan, look no further than the 2016 Honda Fit LX, where CVT models earn an EPA-estimated 41 highway and 33 city mpg* from the 130-hp 1.5L 4-cylinder engine.


These cars are smaller than Honda’s typical family vehicles, but each of them still comfortably seats five passengers and has more than enough space to get comfortable. The Fit even has the Honda Magic Seat for an easily convertible cargo area. Like all new Honda vehicles, you can find some of the latest in auto tech included as standard on these cars, including Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and a multi-angle rearview camera.

Upgrading to a Hybrid

While those fuel-efficient cars were certainly a step above the average sedan or hatchback, going with a new hybrid raises the stakes. Honda has recently announced the release of the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid, sharing its fuel economy specs with the world.

While it’s still a ways off, they also scheduled a plug-in hybrid version of the Honda Clarity, formerly a fuel-cell-only vehicle.

  • The 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid received an upgrade in power and fuel economy, featuring a combined system output of 212 hp and earning up to an EPA-estimated 49 mpg in the city, 47 mpg on the highway, and 48 mpg combined.**
  • Honda just announced plans to expand the Honda Clarity lineup. Once a fuel-cell vehicle, the sedan will now have electric and plug-in hybrid versions available, with Honda’s goal to have the hybrid model in all 50 states by the end of 2017.
    The Accord Hybrid has three trims available and already comes with features like the Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver assistance amenities and other high-tech advantages. We expect similarly advanced tech features for the Clarity as well.

Reviews of Honda’s Fuel-Efficient Honda Cars

Our Mid-Missouri drivers looking for new fuel-efficient cars hopefully know that they can find some of the best at a Mid-Missouri Honda Dealer, but we think it’s important to back up our opinions. Here’s what the critics have to say about some of our efficient Honda cars (reviews are forthcoming on the hybrids):

  • Auto Week on the 2016 Honda Accord: “The 2016 model does everything just a little bit better than its predecessor. It rides slightly better. It’s got more connectivity, if that’s what you’re after. The coupe remains the best-looking car in its class, and the Sport sedan is fun to wind up when the roads open up.”
  • The Detroit Free Press on the 2016 Honda Civic: “The all-new compact is a return to the kind of car that made the Civic a favorite with generations of Americans: fun to drive, fuel efficient and good looking.”
  • Edmunds on the 2016 Honda Fit: “If there’s one thing this Honda is known for, after all, it’s the incredible amount of stuff you can fit inside its pint-sized hatchback body. Today’s Fit also has more rear legroom than ever, and it’s got a respectable roster of standard and optional technology, too. Throw in excellent fuel economy and you’ve got a uniquely talented vehicle that offers great value in this segment.”
