Compare Honda Accord vs Toyota Camry

As far as rivalries go, few competitors are as neck-in-neck as the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. Both sell very well. Both get good reviews. The two sedans offer similar packages, making it fun to compare them side by side, as you can do only at a used car dealership. Whether you look at the history, their awards or their performance, the Accord and Camry are as much a matching pair as they are rivals.

 History

Starting in the 1980s, Accords were the number one Japanese car for 15 years. It was also the first Japanese branded vehicle to be made in the U.S. Even though the Camry stole its crown, the Accord continues to be one of Honda’s best sellers. The ninth generation went on sale in 2012, and these used Hondas have much in common with today’s Accord. Like the Camry, Accords are pushing full size proportions and offer very spacious back seats.

In 1982, the Camry was introduced as a small car. The midsized sedan went on the market in 1991, and eventually the smaller Camry was discontinued. The seventh generation has been widely praised for its durability and reliability. Camrys have been the best-selling car in America for 18 of the last 19 years. Camrys often find their way onto the American Made Index because they are both made in the U.S., and the majority of their parts come from North America.

 Awards and Public Perception

When Autobytel put its list of 10 Longest Lasting Cars of the Road together, it comes as little surprise that both the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry are on the list. Likewise, the Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic, and Accord-twin, the Acura TL, are on the list. This speaks volumes about the durability and reliability that comes with either of these name brands, and it may explain why it is so hard to choose between the two.

You’ll find the Accord on the Kelley Blue Book Best Buy list and on its Best Resale Value list. If it isn’t there one year, it will be because the Camry took the prize. These two vie for awards as much as they vie for customers. Used car shoppers will be happy to know that both Honda and Toyota began putting dash technology on their vehicles before many rivals, making Bluetooth and touchscreens available earlier than you might expect. This emphasis on technology has also contributed to the popularity of both sedans.

 Performance

Toyota has focused on balancing fuel economy and performance with its 2.5-liter I-4. The engine delivers 178 horsepower and 170 lb.-ft. of torque. Recognizing that driving enthusiasts will want a V6, you can find engines with 268 horsepower and 248 lb.-ft. of torque. There’s also a hybrid variety with 200 horsepower.

Honda performance from 2008 to 2012 ranged from an I-4 with 177 horsepower to a V-6 with 271 horsepower. In 2012, the new engines came online. This increased base horsepower to 185 and V-6 horsepower to 278. It too has a hybrid edition.
