Vehicle Comparison Rundown

The Toyota Camry and Honda Accord are midsize sedans with seating for five, roomy interiors and plenty of trunk space. They are both at the top of their class in terms of quality, value and popularity. Plus, both have been totally redesigned for the 2018 model year.

Both cars are known for reliability and are inexpensive to keep on the road. Each has a large and loyal following. And each offers a hybrid version, in case you’re interested in extra fuel-efficiency. So is there anything to set these cars apart?

Making a choice between the Camry and Accord may come down to driving both and seeing which you prefer, especially with earlier models. The Accord has always seemed a bit sportier and more driver-friendly. The latest Accord also has better technology, a more spacious rear seat area and more satisfying driving dynamics than the Camry. While Toyota has moved the 2018 Camry one step forward, Honda has taken the Accord to a whole new level.
