Let's see how the 2017 Honda Accord stacks up against one of its fiercest rivals, the Toyota Camry.
If you were to ask mid-size sedan drivers why they chose their vehicle, you are sure to get varied answers, but fuel economy would be a common answer. Drivers with fuel efficiency on the brain will be happy to learn that the 2017 Honda Accord's standard engine is highly fuel-efficient. In fact, the Accord will put you miles ahead of Camry drivers, who will have to pull over more frequently to refuel. The 2017 Accord's standard 2.4-liter i-VTEC inline 4-cylinder engine returns up to an EPA-estimated 27 miles per gallon in the city and 36 miles per gallon on the highway. Drivers of the Toyota Camry, meanwhile, can expect to muster just 24 mpg in the city and 33 mpg out on the highway. That's right; the Accord tops the Camry by up to three miles per gallon across the board of city and highway driving! With its significantly more fuel-efficient powertrain, it is no wonder that drivers are passing on the Camry and getting into their first, second, or third Honda Accord!
The 2017 Honda Accord may have won the fuel economy battle in dominating fashion, but what about standard power? You may be surprised to learn that the more efficient Accord also tops the Toyota Camry in standard horsepower and torque. The 185-hp, 2.4-liter i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine found beneath the Accord's hood develops 181 lb-ft of torque, which equals an additional seven horsepower and 11 lb-ft of torque over the Camry's inline 4-cylinder engine. The Camry's larger, 2.5-liter engine produces just 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque. The Accord will likely feel more powerful and capable than the Camry in real-world driving conditions, since these two mid-size sedan rivals have a nearly identical curb weight. If you seek impressive fuel efficiency and power in your new mid-size sedan, then skip the Camry and get into a Honda Accord. Come and test drive the thrilling performance and impressive efficiency of the 2017 Accord near Cocoa Beach, Melbourne, Viera, Titusville, and Rockledge at Space Coast Honda in Cocoa, FL.
If you are shopping for a mid-size sedan or 'family sedan,' then chances are you want enough space inside the cabin to seat five passengers comfortably. In the Accord you will find significantly more passenger space than in its competitor from Toyota. In fact, the new Accord provides more front legroom, headroom, hip room, and shoulder room than the Camry; in other words, the Accord's cabin provides more space for the driver and front passenger in every measurable dimension! Rear seat passengers in these two popular sedans will find nearly identical amounts of space. Since the driver seat and front passenger seat are the most often used seating spaces in any passenger vehicle, selecting the Accord over the Camry is a no-brainer when you want to maximize passenger space and comfort.
If you thought the latest edition of this ongoing mid-size sedan rivalry couldn't get any more lopsided for Honda, think again. The 2017 Honda Accord's trunk holds nearly 1/2 cubic foot more cargo than the Camry's, which will certainly come in handy when you are trying to pack everything inside for your family's long weekend road trip or cross-country adventure. Both of these sedans are available with a convenient 60/40 split-folding rear seat to increase cargo space and the ability to haul bulky items, but with its more spacious trunk, the Accord's maximum cargo space is simply more versatile than the Camry's.
The Honda Accord and Toyota Camry mid-size sedans offer substantial lists of safety features, but the Honda outshines the Toyota in overall safety, thanks in large part to its higher safety ratings. The NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) has awarded the Honda Accord with a 5-Star Overall Crash Test Rating, which is the highest overall crash test rating a vehicle can obtain. Toyota's Camry, on the other hand, received a few 4-star safety ratings, including in overall frontal crash, rollover, and side pole crash tests. While both of these mid-size cars have features that are designed to keep you and your precious cargo safe in the event of a collision, why not choose the sedan that passed the NHTSA's crash safety tests with flying colors? Get into a 2017 Honda Accord when you are serious about safety!
