Honda Accord gets the “Green Car of the Year” award image

The new generation of the Honda Accord has managed to received the “Green Car of the Year” award after it was named better than some important names coming from BMW and Audi.

Good news for the Japanese based automaker Honda which has managed to snap the “Green Car of the Year” award with its new generation of the Accord. In order to be eligible for this award, the car must be all new or get significant changes for the current model year.

“Mainstream buyers have long found the Accord a popular choice because of its efficiency, functionality safety and value. With the addition of exceptional hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions to the already fuel-efficient Accord line, Honda Accord becomes an even more compelling choice”, said Ron Cogan, a Green Car Journal Editor.

The 2014 Honda Accord winner of the “Green Car of the Year” is getting an EPA-estimated of 50 mpg in city driving and 47 mpg on the highway and this is normal considering the fact that hybrid cars often get better fuel economy in low speed city driving than on the highway. The Honda Accord has managed to beat its two other rivals, for the “Green Car of the Year” award were the Audi A6 TDI and the BMW 328d. Some of the judges for the award included Jay Leno, Jean-Michel Cousteau, Michael Brune or Frances Beinecke.
