Sedans are Still Struggling to Keep Up with the Honda Accord

Since its release in 1976, every model year of the Honda Accord has provided Chatham, IL drivers with innovation, dependability, and style that the sedan competition can't match, and that's true now more than ever. Versatile, smart, and impeccably designed for convenience, the Honda Accord sits a level above other sedans like the Toyota Camry and Hyundai Sonata, and, to prove it, we've highlighted some ways in which these models compare. Find out how below.


The Honda Accord vs. The Toyota Camry

  • The Honda Accord offers two I4 engines, a 1.5-liter turbo and a 2.0-liter turbo, while the Toyota Camry offers a 2.5-liter I4 and a 3.5-liter V6. While larger engines normally pack more power, the turbocharged technology gives the Honda Accord engines more torque than the Toyota Camry's engines, so you can accelerate more quickly, which helps with overtaking or just having a little fun.
  • Only the Honda Accord offers a manual transmission for Sherman, IL drivers who prefer the more connected feel, and it's 10-speed automatic transmission shifts more smoothly than the Toyota Camry's 8-speed transmission.
  • The frame of the Honda Accord uses Active Noise Cancellation™ technology that makes your commute as serene as possible without din getting in from the outside. The Toyota Camry doesn't use the same technology.
  • In the Honda Accord, Taylorville passengers will find more room, 105.6 cubic feet, for stretching out than they will in the Toyota Camry, 100.4 cubic feet. Each row is treated to more leg and shoulder room, so there's less elbow and knee rubbing between passengers.
  • The Honda Accord also treats drivers to a more spacious trunk than the Toyota Camry does, so you can fit more luggage or gear.
  • Driver-assist features like pre-collision braking and lane keep assist come standard in each model, but only the Honda Accord comes with a traffic sign recognition system that reminds you of roadside warnings like the speed limit and more.
  • Apple CarPlay™ and Android™ Auto make using your preferred smartphone apps through your cars infotainment system supremely simple, and you can find it in all Honda Accord trims but the base model while the Toyota Camry doesn't offer it at all.

The Honda Accord vs. The Hyundai Sonata

  • Each model offers two I4 engines, with the Hyundai Sonata offering a 2.0-liter turbo engine as its most powerful option, but the Honda Accord again comes out on top in terms of power. It's 1.5-liter engine has more horsepower and torque than the Hyundai Sonata's 2.5-liter, and the Honda Accord also packs more horsepower and torque into its 2.0-liter turbo than the Hyundai Sonata's similarly sized engine.
  • The cabins of these models are equally spacious, but the larger trunk space of the Honda Accord lets you fit more gear before having to put items in the passenger area.
  • The 2018 Honda Accord received 5-star marks in each of the areas that the NHTSA grades for safety, an accomplishment that the Hyundai Sonata can't claim.
  • Dual-zone climate control lets Jacksonville, IL front seat passengers pick their preferred A/C and heating settings, and it comes standard in the Honda Accord, but not the Hyundai Sonata.
  • The Honda Accord also comes standard with the Honda Sensing® safety suite, which features adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation braking system, and lane keep assist, all features that only come standard in the priciest trim of the Hyundai Sonata.

Car shoppers are offered more choices than ever before, but the Honda Accord remains one of the most well-rounded sedans available to them, so if it sounds like the ideal car for you, come and see it in person at our dealership in Springfield, IL today!
