EPA fuel economy figures are in for the 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid, and despite a new powertrain, fuel economy takes a slight dip.

The all-new Honda Accord Hybrid uses a new powertrain that pairs a 2.0-liter Atkinson cycle four-cylinder with a two-motor hybrid system. The two electric motors are the first in the world to use permanent magnets that require no heavy rare-earth metals. Total system output is 212 horsepower, similar to the output of the Clarity Plug-in and its 1.5L four. Like that car, the engine only drives the wheels in very limited situations.

It all leads to 47/47/47 miles per gallon on the EPA cycles. That puts it well ahead of the Ford Fusion Hybrid’s 43/41/42, but it’s actually slightly lower than the 49/47/48 mpg rating of the last-generation car. It also trails the all-new Toyota Camry Hybrid, but only in Camry’s LE trim, which has a maximum of 51/52/52 city/highway/combined. The SE and XLE use a different battery and have more standard equipment that gives them a 44/47/46 rating. Buyers that need more efficiency from their Honda should look to the Clarity Plug-in. That car offers a 42-mile all-electric range, then 42 mpg once that charge has run out.

The new Accord Hybrid is offered in the same EX, EX-L, and Touring trims as the gas-only Accord, along with a new base Hybrid trim that is similar to LX. It also offers a full-size trunk thanks to a smaller battery pack and electronics package that goes under the floor, and not in the trunk.

The 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid is expected to go on sale this spring.
