Toyota Camry vs Honda Accord: Head to Head Comparison between both Vehicles

Both Honda Accord and Toyota Sedan are among the most sold cars in the mid-size sedan category and manufacturers — Toyota and Honda are known for their exceptional engineering.

Interior Features

The Camry features a 7-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, Amazon Alexa and Android Auto. In the past, Toyota was not offering Android and Apple players in its Accord models. However, in the past two models, it has started to offer vehicles that are compatible with these.

The Toyota has a non-touch 7-inch display in the basic trim model. To get the touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto — you will have to buy an upper trim.

Both mid-size sedans come with excellent interior features. The only difference is Toyota Camry has great features even in the basic trim level, while Honda Accord has better features in the upper models. Due to this reason, Toyota Camry is the winner here.

Interior Comfort

In the base trim levels, we can compare both vehicles. Accommodating 5 passengers across three rows, both sedans have cloth upholstery and are quite roomy in terms of space.

You can upgrade the upholstery in Camry with leather. Seats can also be upgraded with power adjustment and heated seats.

In the Honda Accord, you can get real leather, and power-adjustable and heated front seats. On top of it, you can also opt for ventilated front seats or heated rear seats. Since Honda Accord has more variety in terms of upgrading the parts, it gets a slight advantage.

Cargo Space

The trunk space in Honda Accord is 16.7 cubic feet, while Toyota Camry has 14.1 cubic feet space in the base trim and 15.1 cubic feet in the upper trim levels. While the seats in the second row of both sedans don’t fold completely, you can split-fold them to improve flexibility.

Again, the Honda Accord wins as it provides us with more cargo space.

Interior Quality

Both cars have modern interiors with well-crafted cabins. Here, it is a little difficult to figure out which one actually wins. After going through several reviews from customers and automotive critics we have concluded that it is a tie between both. However, many reviewers shared that the cabins in Camry sometimes get a little bit noisy.

Price

The Toyota Camry starts at $24,295 for the basic model and reaches $31,040 for the highest trim level. On the other hand, the Accord’s entry-level trim is offered at $23,870 and the Touring model is priced at $36,000.

Even though the Honda Accord is at a lower price, it is more expensive when you go for a higher trim level. However, since Accord is starting at a slightly lower price, we are declaring it the winner here.

Fuel Economy

Toyota Camry offers 29 mpg city and 41 mpg highway fuel mileage. The combined fuel economy is 34 mpg. The Honda Accord’s fuel economy is great too, but it lacks behind with just a small number. It gives 30 mpg city, 38 mpg highway and 33 mpg combined.

Both Toyota and Honda are offered in Hybrid trims. Camry Hybrid earns 51 mpg city and 53 mpg highway, while the Accord Hybrid offers 48 mpg city and 47 mpg highway.

Although the difference is tiny, the Toyota Camry takes the lead here.

Ride and Handling

Making the drive exciting, both mid-size sedans provide a smooth and relaxing ride. Both vehicles come with front-wheel drive. When we compared the ride and handling, we found out that it is a tie between both machines.
The only advantage Camry has on Accord is the sport suspension which is offered in the new 2020 TRD Model. While this might be a good feature, it is not enough to give Toyota Camry a win over its competitor.

Conclusion

With better interior and more cargo space, Honda Accord gains some advantage over the Toyota Camry. While both vehicles will provide great value for money, we declare Honda Accord the winner as it wins in certain areas over the new Toyota Camry.
