Toyota Camry vs. Honda Accord

Having been around for so long, Camry is no stranger to competition. The Honda Accord boasts an equally lengthy history in the United States and has certainly amassed a wealth of fans over the years. Both are fine vehicles worthy of the accolades they've accumulated, but head-to-head how do they compare? While they may seem similar on the surface, closer inspection reveals Camry standing a little taller. Here are some examples:

Toyota Camry vs. Honda Accord Near Turlock and Manteca

  • Drivetrain : The Toyota Camry comes standard with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 203 horsepower, paired to an eight-speed shiftable automatic transmission. The Honda Accord is powered by a 1.5-liter engine that, although it is turbocharged, comes up short at a 192 horsepower.

    A 3.5-liter six-cylinder engine is available on Camry XSE and XLE models that boosts horsepower to 301. The most powerful engine available on Accord is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that generates just 252 horsepower.

  • Efficiency: More power often comes at the expense of fuel economy, but that's not the case with Camry. Even though Camry has more power, it still edges out Accord in fuel efficiency, getting an EPA-estimated 34 mpg combined to Accord's 33 mpg combined.

  • Safety Features: Both Camry and Accord offer a suite of advanced safety features as standard equipment; including pre-collision safety systems, emergency braking assist, and lane departure warning. However, only Camry offers a post-collision safety system which works to mitigate damage after a collision has been detected. Toyota has included the Toyota Safety Sense suite of features as standard equipment on nearly every new model since 2016.

  • Other Features: Toyota's Entune infotainment system comes with standard support for Apple CarPlay on all models, something you can't get on the base model Accord. Furthermore, Camry is tailored to fit drivers and passengers of all sizes. Taller people will appreciate ample area in the footwell, as well as the broad door openings that make it easy to enter and exit. Conversely, Accord may force taller riders to watch their head when getting in and out, and taller drivers may be left wanting for a touch more knee clearance.
