2016 Toyota Camry

Both the 2016 Toyota Camry and the 2016 Honda Accord are two of the leading midsize family sedans on the market for drivers in Elgin and Crystal Lake, IL. That’s saying something – this segment is full of remarkable cars, and these are two of the best. Wondering how these two perennial competitors stack up? You can find out for yourself below!


The 2016 Toyota Camry offers an impressive EPA fuel economy rating of 25 mpg city/35 mpg highway/28 mpg combined with a 2.5L four-cylinder engine. While good, that’s not nearly as good as the 2016 Honda Accord, which rates at 27 mpg city/37 mpg highway/31 mpg combined* based on EPA estimates with a 2.4L four-cylinder and continuously variable transmission.


Neither of these vehicles are sports cars, but you can still expect some fun under the hood. Unfortunately for the 2016 Toyota Camry, which packs 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque, the 2016 Honda Accord is better, with an engine rated at 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. Look at V6 engine options, and you’ll find the same result: the Accord offers more power and performance.


When you consider Insurance Institute for Highway Safety ratings, both of these vehicles earned that organization’s Top Safety Pick+ award. The 2016 Honda Accord did earn a better ‘Superior’ rating in front crash prevention, however, while the 2016 Toyota Camry only received an ‘Advanced’ rating.

In National Highway Traffic Safety ratings the Camry only receiving four stars in the front crash safety, side pole crash safety, and rollover crash safety tests. The 2016 Accord did better with the best possible five-star rating in every one of those tests.


Wondering which one of these sedans will give you more space in the cabin? The answer is the 2016 Honda Accord. The same goes for trunk space. The Accord lets you stretch out comfortably while carrying more luggage in back than the 2016 Toyota Camry.


While both of these vehicles come admirably equipped in all trim levels, the base 2016 Toyota Camry leaves out such important features as:

  • Dual zone automatic climate control
  • An illuminated vanity mirror
  • Floor mats
  • Folding side mirrors
  • Second row head restraints

Those features come standard on the 2016 Honda Accord.
