2014 honda accord 800x400pxAs Mid-Missouri Honda Dealers, we have some thoughts on what vehicles might be the best for you these days. While “best” is surely a subjective term, we have had trouble finding many that could hope to compare to the 2014 Honda Accord.

Let’s see how a vehicle like the 2014 Ford Fusion holds up, shall we?

Honda Gives Drivers More

Let’s start with one of the most important features of a modern sedan: fuel economy. While the Ford Fusion S gets 34 mpg on the highway and 22 mpg in the city, the 2014 Honda Accord LX with continuously variable transmission (CVT) gets an EPA-estimated 36 mpg on the highway and 27 mpg in the city.* Those are savings that will add up quickly.

As if that weren’t enough, Honda also gives drivers more in the way of amenities. You heard that Honda helped to redefine the idea of “standard features” for their 2013 lineup, right? That carried over to 2014, and the Accord includes standard features such as:

  • Alloy wheels
  • Honda’s i-MID infotainment system with 8-inch touchscreen
  • Steering wheel-mounted phone, audio, and i-MID controls
  • Bluetooth for phone and audio streaming
  • Built-in rearview camera

Now, drivers can find some of these amenities—or comparable ones—on the Ford Fusion, but to get them all, they will have to upgrade beyond the basic S trim level. Honda gives them to you at the entry-level Accord LX trim, no upgrading.

These are just a few of the differences between these sedans; the best way to find out more is to see it for yourself with a test drive.
