3 Reasons Why The Accord Is Better Than The Camry

Honda Accord vs. Toyota Camry



Reason #1: Efficiency

Do you want the car that offers the best gas mileage? Of course you do! Why pay more than you need to at the gas pump when you can have a car with:

  • Continuously Variable Transmission
  • A smart and powerful engine
  • Aerodynamic styling

The 2017 Honda Accord has all of these things, which work together to provide 27 mpg in city driving and 36 mpg on the highway.* The Camry has a less impressive 24 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.*

Reason #2: Safety

If you’re in the market for a mid-size sedan, the chances are that you’re looking to drive family and friends from time to time. No matter whom the passengers are, safety is always of the utmost importance and the 2017 Honda Accord has you covered. While both the Toyota Camry and the Honda Accord have an overall five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration**, one car still comes out on top. Here’s what the Honda Accord has to offer:

  • The Honda-exclusive ACE™ Body Structure is built to absorb the energy from front-end crashes, keeping passengers safer should the worst happen.
  • Honda Sensing safety suite, which can be added to any trim level for a very affordable price. The suite includes things like automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, and lane keep assist.


Reason #3: Performance

When practical issues like safety and fuel economy are taken care of, there’s plenty of room for experience-oriented features, like a solid performance. The 2017 Honda Accord has:

  • A standard 185-horsepower engine vs. the Camry’s standard 178
  • An available 278-horsepower V6 vs. the Camry’s 268
  • Responsive handling
  • Powerful acceleration

If you were to stop in at Love Honda and test drive a 2017 Honda Accord today, you’d discover that this sedan offers a smooth and fun ride that can top competitors any day.

Let’s be honest here, we’re not all the same and don’t have the same priorities as drivers. What you may find important, could simply be an afterthought for someone else. However, we can say this though: both the Accord and Camry are great vehicles. If gas mileage, safety, and power are important to you, then the Accord is the better car for you.

Bonus Reason – Floor Mats!

Although neither car comes standard with floor mats, it is one of the perks of buying a new Accord at Love Honda. We’ll throw in the floor mats for you.
