Both the 2017 Toyota Camry and the 2017 Honda Accord Sedan compete for attention in the crowded midsize sedan segment. Either one of these models may meet your basic needs, but if you want to find the best model for you and your family, you should consider this detailed comparison.

  • Efficiency: When it comes down to fuel economy, there’s a clear winner. The front-wheel drive Camry LE with six-speed automatic transmission earns up to 24 mpg city/33 mpg highway in EPA estimates*. However, the Honda Accord Sedan LX with continuously variable transmission and a 2.4L four-cylinder engine earns up to 27 mpg city/36 mpg highway based on estimates from the EPA*.
  • Power: You’ll find more power in the Accord as well. The Camry gets a 2.5L four-cylinder that’s rated at up to 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque. The base Accord Sedan comes standard with a 2.4L four-cylinder that makes 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. If you opt for a V6 upgrade, the 3.5L V6 in the Accord Sedan makes 278 hp, while the Camry can be equipped with a 3.5L V6 that only reaches 248 hp.
  • Safety: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration awarded both of these models the best possible 5-star overall crash test safety rating. However, the Camry only received a 4-Star rating in rollover safety, while the Accord Sedan received the best 5-Star rating in that test*.
  • Space: Inside the cabin, the Accord Sedan offers more front legroom and headroom than the Camry. The Accord Sedan also offers more cargo volume than the Camry, so you can take more with you.
  • Features: The Accord gets some upscale standard equipment including a driver information display, standard rear LED tail lights, and 16-inch aluminum wheels. You won’t find any of those features standard in the Camry.
