Default Car&Driver reviews Honda Accord

http://www.caranddriver.com/article.asp ... e_number=1



Bottom Line: They made two major changes from the current Civic Hybrid:

- Installed an engine that can switch between V6 & V3 on demand
- Installed a small secondary A/C to keep cabin cool during engine stop


I don't think I would buy one. I prefer efficiency to speed. (Which is why I bought an Insight.) Also, I don't understand why the highway mpg is only 36? If the car operates on just 3 cylinders while highway cruising, which is 1.5 liters, shouldn't the highway MPG be up in the 40s?

Why not consolidate this with an earlier thread started today?
