Remember the break in period will have an effect on fuel economy.

I hate to give out bad news but I can tell you that this car will average not much more than 35 MPG for most every day drivers. The Gen 9's only average 33 MPG based on 5+ million miles reported on Fuelly. Based on testing/EPA, Gen10 gets 1 MPG higher city and 3 MPG higher HWY on 1.5L, so it will probably be 35 to 36 MPG among most drivers, with a slight edge for highway drivers.

So I would not expect much more than this unless you do exclusively highway driving or you use grandma and hypermiling techniques. This car is not a hybrid and doesn't have any stop/start, so its going to get heavily affected by acceleration's and city driving.

That being said, 35MPG average is very nice for a 3K lb non-hybrid, and best in class, even better than the i-Eloop Mazda 3 (which uses capacitor and brake energy recovery to get 2MPG more).

If i've learned anything on my hondas over the past 11 years, break in period matters. My cars all rose about 1mpg every 1000 miles i drove. 35 for non break in is awesome considering my 8th gen in high school averaged about 26mpg for the first month. If my 8th gen coupe could get 41mpg on an extended highway trip to pittsburgh from columbus, no doubt the new civic will be able to hit 42+ on distance cruising trips.

I do almost 100% city driving... my 9th gen averages about 27-28mpg most of the time (i am heavy on the throttle most of the time, usually revving to 3-4k rpms getting up to speed depending on traffic) just wonder if my mileage in the city will be better (less revving because more low end power on tap from the 1.5T) or worse (i'll still be rev happy and i'll be spooling up the turbo everytime. haha)

Thankfully for me i don't actually drive that much, very short work commute, no social life, etc... so mpg isn't really my top priority as i usually only fill up the gas tank once a month, maybe twice.

5 Civics in 10 years. I might be an addict.

its the booooooosttt that will do you in. If you can stay out of the boost as often as possible you'll find tons of mileage. But it's no fun driving like a granny... what's 4 mpg a tank work out to cost wise?

It's all a matter of how you drive. I have a 2013 Accord Sport this is rated 35MPH highway. I can consistently get 39-40 MPG sometimes a fraction more. I do drive at the speed limit and am light on the throttle. My other car is a 2014 Corvette that will get 35-36 MPG on the highway if you obey the speed limit (in ECO Mode with cylinder de-activation).
For me it's fun to try getting the max MPGs. Having the MPG meter in the car makes me try for the higher mileage most of the time when I drive.
The only car I had that did not make Highway MPGs was my 2010 Elantra (initially rated at 40 MPG Highway-later reduced to 38 MPGs after enough people complained about unattainable mileage rating).

Is your Accord a 2.4L?
Cuz I'm thinking to get the 1.5T sedan, but there is also a demo 2014 Accord coupe EX-L 2.4L stick (6kkm on odo) in town, which is about 1k cheaper before tax.
I'm still hesitating ....
