Don't wait around for the Honda Accord to wow you or woo you in 2014. It probably won't. It's a Honda Accord. Whoop-de-doo. But it does make this list for being so gosh-darn-good at being a Honda Accord, and for being so goody-two-shoes green about it, too. The whole lineup of Accords was given the "Green Car of the Year" award by Green Car Journal for being, well ... so boringly, reliably efficient. For being a four-door sedan that, as a hybrid, gets 50 miles per gallon (21.3 kilometers per liter) in the city, and as a plug-in hybrid, it gets 115 MPGe (48.9 kilometers per liter equivalent). Even just a normal old 4-cylinder, gasoline-powered, Honda Accord gets 34 miles per gallon (14.5 kilometers per liter) on the highway. It's the car next door you never knew you loved.
