2017 Honda Accord vs 2017 Toyota Camry
The Honda Accord is one of the most successful midsize sedans of all time, delivering an impressive combination of American comfort, European looks and Japanese reliability. For 2017, it continues to raise the bar with its refined and roomy interior, excellent driving characteristics, high-tech features and high-level practicality. One of the Accord's major competitors is the Toyota Camry. In this 2017 Honda Accord vs 2017 Toyota Camry comparison, we show how the two popular midsize sedans measure up.
A major strength of the 2017 Accord is for safety. While you have to buy one of the higher-priced Camry trims to get the more advanced safety features, you can get premium safety features standard with the Accord LX. An example of this is the Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Dynamic Guidelines, which gives you a better view of what's behind you with three different angles: normal, top-down and wide. And the Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure on the Accord enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions by distributing crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle. Additional safety features in the Accord LX include standard Vehicle Stability Assist, Electronic Brake Distribution and Brake Assist, as well as available Lane Keeping Assist System and Adaptive Cruise Control.

2017 Accord vs 2017 Camry: Which midsize sedan is better?
The 2017 Accord LX 6MT not only has a cheaper price tag than the 2017 Camry LE ($22,355 vs $23,070 MSRP), it offers more value as well, with an abundance of standard features.* This includes 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, LED taillights, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth, height-adjustable driver seat, four-speaker sound system with a CD player, auxiliary audio jack, USB port, Pandora and i-MID with high-resolution WVGA screen.
It probably comes as no surprise to the Honda faithful that the Accord has the advantage over the Camry for performance, given Honda's status as the world's leading manufacturer of engines. The Accord LX comes equipped with a high-tech direct-injected 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder engine, delivering an impressive 185 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque. Despite the slightly larger 2.5-liter engine in the Camry, it only manages 178 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque. Also, the advanced MacPherson strut front suspension in the 2017 Accord provides superior ride and handling qualities while also reducing interior noise, vibration and harshness. Additional noise reductions are derived from careful tailoring of the underbody and suspension systems.
