2014 Honda AccordWhen you’re looking for a mid-size sedan in the West Michigan area, we know that you have quite a few choices available to you, but if you’re looking at the 2014 Hyundai Sonata for fuel economy, we have a suggestion: look at the 2014 Honda Accord. Not only is the Accord incredibly well-equipped and easily affordable, but it’s one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles in its class.

Drive the More Efficient Sedan

The 2014 Honda Accord LX with continuously variable transmission earns an EPA-estimated 36 mpg on the highway and 27 mpg in the city,* while the Sonata only manages 35 highway mpg and 24 city mpg. It may seem like a small difference, but it’s going to add up over time, especially if you do a lot of city driving.

To see a closer, more in-depth comparison of the 2014 Accord and 2014 Sonata, take a look at our side-by-side evaluation of the two sedans. We break down the differences on features and let you decide whether or not Honda is redefining the idea of just what should be considered “standard.”

For a bit of a preview, the 2014 Accord comes with the following features at even the basic LX trim level:

  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink
  • Honda’s i-MID infotainment system
  • Built-in rearview camera
  • SMS texting capabilities
  • Pandora radio connectivity

Can you find comparable amenities on the Sonata? Yes. Does Hyundai require you to upgrade in order to get a sedan on par with the basic Accord LX? Yes.
