With the turbocharged 192hp 1.5L I4 engine, 6-speed manual transmission, and front-wheel drive, the 2020 Honda Accord has been averaging 26.31 MPG (miles per gallon). The 2020 Honda Accords in this analysis were driven mostly in the city (about 80 percent of the miles driven). The rest of the miles were on the highway at an average speed of 65 miles per hour (20 percent), in the suburbs (0 percent), and in heavy traffic (0 percent).
The Toyota Corolla LE Eco's 1.8-liter, four-cylinder motor (which also generates 128 lb-ft of torque) is frugal enough to post 30-mpg in city driving and 42-mpg on the highway, and to achieve those numbers it requires the use of a continuously-variable automatic transmission (other Corolla editions see a four-speed auto or a six-speed manual in the mix).
