Honda has announced pricing for the new, 50-mile-per-gallon 2014 Accord Hybrid today, with three trims – Hybrid, Hybrid EX-L and Hybrid Touring – for owners to choose from. Prices for the base car start at $29,155, while the mid-range model will run $31,905. The top-of-the-line Touring trim starts at $34,905. Prices do not include the *$905 destination charge.

Regardless of which model is chosen, Accord Hybrid owners will be able to net 50 mpg in the city and 45 on the highway, numbers that compare favorably with the Ford Fusion Hybrid (47/47 mpg) and the Toyota Camry Hybrid (43/39). The Accord does cost a bit more than the competition, but if out-and-out fuel economy is your goal, the Honda wins based on these numbers.

It's also notable how much Honda was able to trim off the Accord Hybrid's price when compared to the Accord Plug-In. That car starts at $39,780, meaning the Hybrid variant is over $10,000 less, while matching that PHEV's 47-mpg combined rating. Take a look down below for the official press release from Honda.

      That is damn good for 30K. Now throw on some sheet metal in the back and bring on a wagon or better yet MPV!! A mid sized hybrid MPV would be the perfect compliment (as an alternative) to the oversized Oddy. But for the love of god, do not do another crosstour…

      Looks like a winner, but a bit more expensive than the competition. Although that 50 number really jumps off the page. Consumers want economy and they'll pay any price to get it. -Lee Iacocca

        Why spread incorrect information? Your fuming is relevant only to a particular period of Civic Hybrids. EPA hybrid fuel economy figures can be debated on ALL hybrids.

      for this much money one can get a MB C class. Are we in the last stages of insanity when one buys a garbage honda for the same price of.a Mercedes Benz??? Are there really people in america who would make this purchasing choice?!

        The Honda will be much more reliable than the Mercedes. I'm amazed anybody with a brain buys such an unreliable car that will self destruct after the warranty expires.

        ...Yet the Honda will last longer than Mercedes, cheaper to run than Mercedes, insurance, fuel tax is much cheaper in Honda than Mercedes.

        Apparently hundreds of thousands since the Accord sells way more than the Mercedes. Besides, a Merc C Class sedan starts at $36k. So yes, many people will save $7,000 to get a hybrid Accord with 50mpg highway compared to 31mpg highway on a base C Class.

        I have the 2002 C-Class and just replaced it with the Accord EX-L with Nav. The interior is better than my C-Class and it is as nimble as my older 3-Series. As those cars aged, the thousands and thousands of dollars I paid to fix them simply turned me against any further Mercedes and I'd have to swallow hard to consider a BMW, although it was overall more reliable than the C. The final nail for me was replacing the automatic transmission at 110,000 miles. That's just garbage. I owned it for most of the miles put on it, it was well maintained and cared for. Out of warranty of course and it cost me $4k to replace. As a prior Honda owner who had fallen out of love with the Accords since my 88, my head was turned at the last minute and I am extremely happy with my purchase.

        The Honda Accord has been on Car & Driver's 10-Best list TWENTY-SEVEN times. Mercedes C-Class has been on that list ZERO times. I don't care for the Accord these days but you can't argue with quality and excellence.

      Sounds like the price is right, but it will keep sales from exploding past Camry Hybrid, the segment's #1 seller. In 2014, I expect their sales numbers to be similar Honda COULD sell it for the same price, but this is obviously a money grab, not looking to take over the market with value. They want to get paid! Can't blame them. You either want share or cash, and since they probably won't take the segment over, they choose that paper! But a $30k starting price will turn off a nice chunk of buyers..... BD

        Your observation that Honda and Toyota have taken divergent paths with their family sedans is spot on. Toyota cut costs to pursue maximum volume. The result is a Camry that feels cheaper than its preceding generation in every way. Honda increased the feature content, interior quality, and subsequently the price of the Accord, pursuing higher profits per vehicle to the detriment of volume. So everyone is a winner. If you want a big cheap car, you get a Camry. If you want a higher quality car and can afford an extra grand or two, you get an Accord.

        You wrote that just to say "Camry is #1." Poor Honda. They already have to settle for making a big bunch of dumb old money selling Accords. And now they've got this 50MPG model that'll sell for a nice premium over the Camry. How awful. Meanwhile the Camry's fleet sales and incentives are stuck high above Honda's, and the nameplate has become synonymous with 'mediocre.' To hear you tell it, though, it's 'TOYOTA OWNS THE SEGMENT!!' Get real. Honda has no reason to envy Toyota when it comes to midsize sedans these days.

      How can anyone compare a Mercedes-Benz to a Honda? It's just not fair. A Honda is just too reliable.

      $10K more for a charger and 19 miles of electric range? What a joke. Get a Volt instead.

        The real problem with this car is that the base Accord is just so dang good. $21k for 185hp and 36mpg is just such a bargain. And it drives well and the interior is well above the price.

          Because when it comes to stop/go traffic the car gets 22mpg (I don't care what the sticker says, that's what 7,100+ miles of driving gets in the base accord). Now 22 at 50% and 36 at 50% = 29mpg NOT 36. 29 mpg combined versus 47mpg is pretty big difference. That's a 62% increase in fuel economy. That's 62% less money going to oil companies (and gas stations as well not just OPEC) but you get the hint. Still 29mpg combined out of a great mid-size (basically they are all full size at this point) is great!

        It really is. I have a friend who is car shopping and keeps coming back to the Accord Sport model even though he does not need something this big. It is just such a great value compared to the compact cars he is considering. Plus, this is the only car I've seen where the lower level models (without the dual screens) actually have the more attractive interiors.
