The mid-size sedan class is as competitive as ever. Let's see how the 2017 Honda Accord compares to one of its longest running rivals, the Toyota Camry.
Standard Fuel Economy
No matter what the price of gas is, fuel efficiency matters to drivers, especially drivers of mid-size sedans, who expect to return impressive fuel economy numbers. Car shoppers with fuel efficiency on the mind will be glad to hear that the 2017 Honda Accord's standard engine is incredibly fuel-efficient. The Accord not only offers greater fuel efficiency than its mid-size rival from Toyota, but it rivals some smaller, compact sedans, too! The 2017 Accord's standard 2.4-liter i-VTEC inline 4-cylinder earns an EPA-estimated 27 miles per gallon in the city and 36 miles per gallon on the highway. Drivers of the Toyota Camry, meanwhile, should expect just an EPA-estimated 24 mpg in the city and 33 mpg out on the highway. That's right; no matter what type of driving you do -- city, highway, or combined -- the Accord tops the Camry by a whopping three miles per gallon! It is tough to argue with the Accord's supreme fuel efficiency over the Camry, but let's see how these two compare in standard power and performance.
Standard Horsepower and Torque
The 2017 Honda Accord may dominated the fuel economy duel, but what about standard power? After all, long gone are the days when mid-size sedans were merely 'family sedans'; now, drivers expect plenty of power on tap, even in base trim. Even with its smaller and more efficient standard engine, the Accord bests the Toyota Camry in standard horsepower and torque. The Accord's 185-hp, 2.4-liter i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine develops 181 lb-ft of torque; while the Camry's larger, 2.5-liter engine produces just 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque. These two mid-size sedan rivals have a nearly identical curb weight, meaning that the Accord will feel more powerful and capable out on the road, thanks to its additional 11 lb-ft of torque and seven horsepower over the Camry. For a powerful yet fuel-efficient new sedan, pass on the Camry and get into a Honda Accord. Come and test drive the thrilling performance and impressive efficiency of the 2017 Accord near Lakeland, Clearwater, and Riverview at Brandon Honda in Tampa, FL.
When shopping for a mid-size sedan, who wouldn't want to maximize passenger space and comfort? With the Accord, you will find significantly more passenger space than in its competitor from Toyota. In fact, the new Accord has more front legroom, headroom, hip room, and shoulder room than the Camry; in other words, the Accord's front seats are roomier than the Camry's in every measurable dimension! Rear seat passengers in these two popular sedans will find nearly identical amounts of space. To maximize passenger comfort and space in your new mid-size sedan, get into the Honda Accord at Brandon Honda.
Mid-size sedans continue to grow over the years, both in passenger space and in cargo capacity. Of course, some offer more space than others, like the Honda Accord. The new Accord's trunk holds nearly 1/2 cubic foot more cargo than the Camry's, which will certainly come in handy whether on a long weekend road trip or transporting family or friends and their bags or luggage. Both of these mid-size sedans are offered with convenient 60/40 split-folding rear seats to increase cargo space and the ability to haul bulky items, but the Accord's larger trunk translates to greater cargo hauling versatility.
The Honda Accord and Toyota Camry mid-size sedans are outfitted with safety features aimed at protecting you and your precious cargo in the event of a collision, but thanks to its higher safety ratings, the Honda outshines the Toyota in overall safety. The NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) has awarded the Honda Accord with a 5-Star Overall Crash Test Rating, which is the highest overall crash test rating a vehicle can obtain. Toyota's Camry, on the other hand, received a few 4-star safety ratings, including in overall frontal crash, rollover, and side pole crash testing. If you are serious about safety, why not opt for the sedan that has passed the NHTSA's crash safety tests with flying colors?
