Take a look at the power and efficiency numbers, and you’ll find that the Accord comes out ahead of the Sonata:

  • Hyundai Sonata: When equipped with a 2.5L four-cylinder engine and a six-speed automatic transmission, the Hyundai Sonata is rated at 25 mpg city/36 mpg highway based on EPA estimates*, and it reaches 185 hp and 178 lb-ft of torque. The Sonata is offered with a 2.0L turbocharged 245 hp four-cylinder as an upgrade option. The EPA rates this engine at 22 mpg city/31 mpg highway when equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission.
  • Honda Accord Performance: The Honda Accord with a 2.4L four-cylinder makes 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque and earns up to 27 mpg city/36 mpg highway with continuously variable transmission in EPA estimates*. The 3.5L V6 delivers 278 hp and rates at up to 21 mpg city/33 mpg highway when outfitted with a six-speed automatic transmission with sport mode.
