Honda Accord vs. Toyota Camry

The 2017 Honda​ Accord​ and the 2017 Toyota Camry are two of the most popular vehicles in their segment. We at Don Wessel Honda believe the Accord is unparalleled, however—and here’s where the Toyota Camry falls short .

Power and Fuel Economy

Between the Accord and the Camry, both have two different engine offerings: a standard engine and a more powerful one. The Accord’s standard engine delivers 185 horsepower (or 189 on Sport models) while still achieving a highway fuel economy of up to 36 mpg* depending on your choice of transmission. The Camry, however, only gets 178 horsepower while getting less mileage (33 mpg* on the highway, to be exact).
The same thing happens when you upgrade to both models’ V6 engine options; the Camry cranks out less power while burning more fuel, making the Accord the most powerful and most efficient of the two.


Amenities and Tech

Both the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry have a number of conveniences and comforts that come standard and available for customers, but the Accord offers standard features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, a 10-way power driver’s seat, and a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera—none of which are offered with the Camry.


On the surface, it appears both the Camry and Accord are equally safe, as both models earned a 5-star rating from the NHTSA. Unfortunately for the Camry, despite its five-star overall rating, it only received four stars in two of the three crash tests (frontal crash and rollover). In comparison, the Accord received five stars in the rollover crash test. The Honda Accord also comes with lots of safety systems, such as Honda LaneWatch and Lane Keep Assist.
When you look at the 2017 Honda Accord and 2017 Toyota Camry lined up side by side, it’s easy to see where the Accord is just the overall better choice, whether you’re looking for safety, value, efficiency, or power.
