Two of the most popular family cars on the market are the Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry. Both cars are known to be sensible, practical, reliable, and safe – but which family car is the best choice for you and your family? While the Camry continues to be one of the Accord’s greatest challengers, taking a look at the specs alone shows that the Accord has far much more to offer than its competitor.
Accord vs. Camry Power and Efficiency
With the ability to generate 278-horsepower when equipped with the strongest powertrain, the 2016 Honda Accord gives drivers the excitement behind the wheel that they crave. Even so, the Accord has no problem balancing all of that power with efficiency. The Honda Accord earned an EPA-estimated 37 mpg* highway fuel economy, which is just high enough to beat out the Camry’s performance of 35 mpg*.
Honda Accord vs. Toyota Camry Interior
Inside the Accord’s cabin is 103.2 cubic feet of passenger room, which leaves ample room for travelers to customize their space on the road. The Toyota Camry falls short with only 102.7 cu. ft. of passenger space. And with an MSRP of only $22,205**, the Accord starts at a lower price than the Toyota Camry’s MSRP of $23,070***, meaning its overall value is through the roof when compared to its competitor. The winner here is clearly the Accord.
All in all, both the Toyota Camry and the Honda Accord are both great family cars, but the Accord beats the Camry in every category. From its price, to its fuel-efficiency, to its luxurious, spacious interior, the 2016 Honda Accord simply cannot be beaten.
