Honda Accord vs Toyota Camry

Honda Accord vs Toyota Camry

Powertrains and MPG

Both the 2017 Honda Accord and the 2017 Toyota Camry will see Bellevue, Seattle, North Bend, Renton and Lynnwood drivers deciding between either a four-cylinder or a V6; with either choice, you’ll receive stronger performance and superior efficiency scores when you opt for the Honda.

The Accord’s engine options include:
  • 2.4L Four-Cylinder: Makes up to 185 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque, or 189 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque with Sport models. With the LX, EX, and EX-L models, you’ll get up to 23 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway* with a 6-speed manual or 27 mpg city and 36 mpg highway with a CVT.*
  • 3.5L V6: The Accord’s V6 is potent enough to command up to 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque. A 6-speed automatic transmission comes standard to make up to 21 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.*
The 2017 Camry’s engine options suffer markedly in comparison:
  • 2.5L Four-Cylinder: The Camry’s 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque pales next to the Accord’s four-cylinder, yet mileage tops out at a relatively unimpressive 24 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.
  • 3.5L V6: The Camry’s six-cylinder makes 268 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque while allowing for just 21 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.

No matter the Camry engine you opt for, you’ll be receiving less power while burning more fuel.


Cabin space really matters when it comes to midsize sedans; they need to offer plenty of cargo and passenger room to fit around your changing needs. With up to 103.2 cubic feet of passenger space and 15.8 cubic feet of cargo space vs. 102.7 and 15.4 with the Camry, the Accord really does lead the class.

Just check out how those improved dimensions will affect your driving comfort:

  • Headroom: Up to 39.1 inches in the front of the 2017 Accord vs. just 38.8 in the front of the 2017 Camry.
  • Legroom: Up to a 42.5 inches in the front of the 2017 Accord vs. just 41.6 in the front of the 2017 Camry.

Comfort and Convenience Features

The 2017 Honda Accord doesn’t just offer greater interior space than the 2017 Toyota Camry — it also fills that space with state-of-the-art technologies for drivers from Bellevue, Seattle, North Bend, Renton and Lynnwood to enjoy.

Here’s a short list of amenities that are available with the Accord but not with the Camry:

  • 10-Way Power Driver’s Seat: Includes power lumbar support and two-position memory settings to ensure perfect support during every journey. The Camry’s available 8-way power seats can’t quite compete.
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: The Camry also fits a rearview camera as standard, but it lacks the multiple viewing modes (Normal, Wide, and Top-down) that makes the Accord’s rearview monitor so unique.
  • Apple CarPlay®/Android Auto™: The 2017 Accord makes it easy to sync up your smartphone to the vehicle’s systems. Use either Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™ functionality to do just that, then control your smartphone’s features through the touchscreen display.

Safety Features

The 2017 Honda Accord achieved significantly better results during crash tests conducted by the NHTSA than the 2017 Toyota Camry. Though both models were able to take home an overall safety score of 5 stars,** the Camry scored only 4 stars in two of the three segments: Frontal Crash and Rollover. In contrast, the Accord achieved a 5-star rating in the rollover category.

The Accord also offers a string of safety features that Bellevue, Seattle, North Bend, Renton and Lynnwood drivers won’t be able to take advantage of with the 2017 Camry, including:

  • Lane Keep Assist: The Lane Departure Warning System lets you know if you begin to deviate from your chosen lane without signaling. Should you fail to heed that alert, the Lane Keep Assist system will provide corrective steering to keep you centered.
  • Honda LaneWatch: A small camera mounted below your passenger side mirror will automatically display a video feed of your blind spot on the Accord’s touchscreen system when you signal.
