2015 Honda Accord vs 2015 Toyota Camry
Both the 2015 Toyota Camry and the 2015 Honda Accord will make a good choice for drivers in the Elgin and Schaumburg areas here in Illinois, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re equals. In this competitive segment, we know that a winning sedan must offer a mix of efficiency, comfort, technology, and style. So which one comes out ahead? Let’s take a closer look!
Efficiency and Power
The 2015 Honda Accord is rated at an amazing 27 mpg city/36 mpg highway/31 mpg combined with the 2.4L four-cylinder and automatic, continuously variable transmission*. The 2015 Toyota Camry gets a respectable 25 mpg city/35 mpg highway/28 mpg combined with a 2.5L four-cylinder. Still, as you can see, the Accord comes out ahead when it comes to fuel economy.
The new Accord also comes with the latest engine technology to squeeze 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque out of its 2.4L four cylinder. The 2.5L four-cylinder in the Camry lags behind, making only 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque. You can bet that the Honda will offer more spirited acceleration.
Interior and Safety Features
The 2015 Toyota Camry and 2015 Honda Accord both get the Top Safety Pick + from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The Accord earned a best-possible 5-star overall crash safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, while the Camry has so far only been rated in the rollover test and the frontal crash test; in both cases, it received the second best 4-star rating.
Another reason to appreciate the Accord is its interior features. You’ll find more cabin space overall, allowing your passengers a more comfortable ride. All models of the new Accord also offer a number of standard features that you just won’t find with the Camry.
