When a driver is trying to decide between the best sedan, the 2021 Accord and 2021 Toyota Camry always end up as final contenders. It’s undeniable that these two models have proven to be reliable sedans for many San Antonio, Schertz, and Alamo Heights, Texas drivers. However, the Northside Honda team is prepared to put an end to this debate.
In our Honda Accord vs. Toyota Camry comparison, you will get to see what these two models offer side by side. This head-to-head comparison will help you make an educated decision on which sedan is best for you. Let’s get started.
When it comes to performance, both sedans provide a smooth yet thrilling experience. All you have to do is pick the power you want behind the wheel.
A 1.5L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that packs a lot of punch with its 192 lb-ft of torque comes standard in the Honda Accord. Unfortunately, the standard 2.5L 4-cylinder engine in the Toyota Camry only offers a 182 lb-ft of torque.
Additionally, both models come with optional hybrid engines. With a total system horsepower of 212 in the Hybrid Accord models, you’ll have more power than you would with the Camry, which tops out with 208 total system net horsepower with its hybrid engine.
The Hybrid EX and Hybrid EX-L trims of the 2021 Accord achieve an EPA-estimated 48 city/48 highway MPG for a non-stop trip for any drive you take.1 With the Camry Hybrid, it comes close, reaching an EPA-estimated 44 city/47 highway MPG. However, it is not the maximum power that the Accord achieves.
When you’re on the road, you deserve to be as cozy as can be. The 2021 Accord offers tons of amenities inside its cabin to ensure this. For instance, it comes standard with a dual-zone automatic climate control system on all trims, a passenger volume of 105.6 cubic feet, and ample trunk room with 16.7 cubic feet of room.
While the Toyota Camry does offer dual-zone automatic climate control, it is not standard and can only be found on higher trim levels. Additionally, this sedan offers less space for you and your passengers. You’ll get a passenger volume of only 100.4 cubic feet and a trunk that maxes out at 15.1 cubic feet.
If the sound quality of your in-vehicle audio system means a lot to you, then you’re in luck. The Accord features an optional 10-speaker, 450-watt Premium Audio System. A comparable and available Premium Audio system comes in the Camry, but it only features nine JBL® speakers.
Additionally, the Accord comes equipped with the HomeLink® remote system. This available feature acts as a universal garage door opener, automatically giving you access to your garage as well as your security gate.
With the choice of the 2021 Honda Accord and the 2021 Toyota Camry in front of you, do you know which set of wheels is best for you? At Northside Honda, we think the more powerful engine lineup and unique cabin amenities make the 2021 Honda Accord worth a second look.
