Honda Performance

Right from the beginning, the Honda Accord stands above the Toyota Camry in several key areas. In terms of performance, the Accord shines with greater torque than the Camry when looking at both available engines. If you’re searching for maximum interior comfort the Accord also is the favorite, delivering greater passenger room and greater cargo room than the Camry. Additional comfort and convenience features, such as fog lights, adaptive cruise control, and traffic sign recognition, are offered on the Accord. Camry shoppers will not have access to any of these features.

Floor mats are standard equipment on the Accord while Camry shoppers will have to pay an extra cost. Similarly, navigation is included as standard on Accord EX-L with Navigation and Touring trim levels, whereas the Camry requires a costly $1,870 Navigation Upgrade Package to receive the same equipment. Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integration is included as standard on Accord Sport, EX, and above trims. Camry owners will be disappointed to learn that both features are not available on their vehicle. Remote Engine Start, which comes in handy on those chilly winter mornings, is standard on the Accord EX and above trims. This useful feature is an added cost, dealer installed option on the Camry.
