2017 Honda Accord vs. 2017 Honda Civic

Honda makes great cars, and the longstanding tradition of quality and style of the Accord midsize sedan and the Civic compact car are continued – and then some – in the 2017 Honda Accord and the 2017 Honda Civic. We'll take a look at how they compare in our never-ceasing efforts to help you make a well-informed decision when you're on a Continental Motors lot.

The 2017 Honda Accord is a well-built midsize sedan with a bold, strong style that features smooth lines and a boomerang-shaped front fascia. There are very few sedans in its class that will be able to keep up with the power that will arise from the powertrain, as you start with 185 horsepower in the base trim and move rapidly up to 278 HP in the top trim levels. The 2017 Honda Civic has a formidable power base for a compact, with horsepower that ranges from 158 to 174 HP depending on the trim option, and its design shares the panache of the Honda style with the playfulness that is a must for a lightweight compact car.

There's plenty more to enjoy with the 2017 Honda Civic and Accord, as the 2017 Civic tops out at a wallet-friendly 31 mpg city, 40 mpg highway in trim levels with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). Those are superb numbers for a compact car. The 2017 Accord is no slouch, either, as it averages 27 mpg city, 36 mpg highway in trims with CVT.

Both are superb buys not only because of the fuel savings, power and design, but because of the comfort that comes with models that both were an IIHS Top Safety Pick in 2016, and with an anticipated Top Safety Pick designation for 2017 forthcoming. This means that both are among the most impact-resistant models in their class.
