2016 Honda Accord vs. 2016 Toyota Camry

The luxury sedan market is seeing a revolution in quality right now, and the proof is in both the 2016 Honda Accord and the 2016 Toyota Camry. They both have reasonable retail prices: The 2016 Accord starts at $22,105, with the 2016 Camry a smidge more at a $23,070 starting price. The extra cost for the Camry is justified when you consider its fuel economy, 25 mpg in the city and 35 on the highway in standard trims and around 38 mpg in the city and 40 on the highway in hybrid trims. The 2016 Accord will get you an outstanding 27 mpg in the city and 37 on the highway's open roads.

Most trim options for both the Camry and the Accord come with Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), an engine feature designed for a smooth ride. You won't feel shifts as you increase or decrease speeds, and the engine will determine the most efficient speed depending on your situation.

On the outside, the Camry's sporty suspension and sport front grille makes it look and feel like a sleeker version of a muscle car, fast enough for the city but elegant enough to go the distance on long trips. The Accord has a boxier design, with a strong front and LED fog lights available in most models. With these cars, it's not quality hiding in plain sight; it's that everything else in your sight becomes plain compared to them.

Performance of the 2016 Honda Accord and the 2016 Toyota Camry

If you're looking for a regal-looking car with somewhat higher fuel economy, then the 2016 Honda Accord is your car, which can get you a few more miles per gallon. It also has a little more giddy-up and go than the Camry, with 185 horsepower (278 in the EX-L V6 and Touring models). That's not to mention the audio system that will have you and your passengers raving, with cool features like streaming audio, hands-free Bluetooth, and Speed-Sensitive Volume Control (SVC), which adjusts the volume as the noise around you fluctuates.

If you desire a curvy, fast, and cutting-edge car, then the 2016 Toyota Camry and its available hybrid models is more your speed. The Camry checks in at 178 horses in most models and 268 in its XSE and XLE models, nice numbers for a sedan. It has Bluetooth hands-free technology, but it also comes loaded with a backup camera to help you avoid running into or over objects and an optional navigation app for your Entune Audio system. If hybrid models are more your thing, then you will also enjoy the benefits of the Camry hybrid models' supreme fuel economy and their 2.5-L 4-cylinder hybrid engines.
