Sedans tend to offer a balance of peppy performance and interior space, which is why they’re appealing to those who have to commute every day. This segment is competitive, though, which can make it hard to figure out which model is the right for you. Here, we take a look at the 2019 Honda Accord and 2019 Toyota Camry to help you make the most informed choice possible.
A better view
The 2019 Toyota Camry is standard with a backup camera with a projected path feature, which is less certain than the 2019 Honda Accord and its standard Multi-Angle Rear View Camera with Dynamic Guidelines. Offered on every Accord, this camera allows you to select three different angles when reversing — normal, top-down, and wide. Dynamic Guidelines give you a clear sense of where your vehicle is headed — if you want this feature on the Camry, you’ll need to pay more for a higher-priced variant.
Eco Assist™ System
Only the 2019 Honda Accord features the Eco Assist™ System, which instructs you on how you can become a more fuel-efficient driver. This technology is standard with the Accord’s Continuously Variable Transmission, which helps the Accord deliver 30 mpg in the city — one mile per gallon better than the Camry.
A superior interior
With the 2019 Honda Accord, you get Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control and Push Button Start from the base LX model up. With the Toyota Camry, comparable features are only standard on the highest — and most expensive — trim level.
The 2019 Honda Accord Spot adds Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration, making it the better choice for connectivity. The Camry does not offer either technology at all, meaning you’ll have to figure out another, less-elegant way to access your smartphone’s features while on the go.
The Accord also boasts more space for your passengers, offering a total of 105.6 cubic feet of space throughout the interior. That’s a full 5.2 cubic feet of space more than the Toyota Camry.
