Fuel economy is important to today’s drivers, whether they’re concerned about environmental impact or just want to save money at the pump. When it comes fuel efficiency, the members of the Honda family shine brightly among their competitors.
The Honda Accord Hybrid was recently declared one of the Greenest Vehicles of 2017 by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE). The honor was given in acknowledgment of the car’s ongoing stance as one of the most environmentally friendly automobiles available in the marketplace.
The popular Honda CR-V, when equipped with a 1.5L turbocharged engine and front-wheel drive, was also recognized by the ACEEE among its Greener Choices 2017. The CR-V ranked within the top 11% among the vehicles considered for the award.
Vehicles in the running for the ACEEE’s Greener Choices 2017 list included gas-powered cars and light trucks that feature automatic transmissions and have wide availability in the automotive marketplace. Vehicles considered for the honor were ranked following an analysis of their automotive life cycles, which took into account environmental driving impacts, manufacturing, and end-of-life recycling.
