By midsize sedan standards, the Honda Accord features sleek, fastback exterior
styling that wouldn’t look out of place on a German luxury sport sedan. In
contrast, the Toyota Camry’s styling ranges from rather bland to quite aggressive,
depending on the trim level. Both cars feature spacious, comfortable interiors
with intuitive controls, bright touchscreens, and room for five, but the Honda
Accord is slightly larger, giving it the advantage in terms of interior space and
trunk capacity. Advanced safety and convenience features, including adaptive
cruise control, are either standard or optional on these family sedans. Both are
available with a fuel-efficient gas engine, and an Accord hybrid or Camry hybrid is
also available, though only the Toyota Camry offers a V6 option and all-wheel
drive. Although the driving dynamics of the Camry are much improved from
previous models, it still can’t match the Accord. In terms of ride quality and
overall refinement, the Camry may hold a slight edge, but we’re talking shades of
gray here. While not as roomy or flexible as today’s popular SUVs, these are both
excellent family sedans – you can’t go wrong with either one.
