If you have been shopping for a mid-size sedan that is fuel-efficient, powerful, and can protect your precious cargo, then you have got to see the Honda Accord. The Accord consistently ranks as one of the one of the most popular cars in America, and the latest version further improves on everything that Accord owners love about this sedan. Tameron Honda proudly serves residents near Homewood, Chelsea, and Pelham & Hoover. We invite nearby drivers to visit our Birmingham, AL showroom to test drive the stylish new Honda Accord.
Let's see how the 2016 Honda Accord stacks up against its classic rival, the Toyota Camry.
The 2016 Honda Accord will put you miles ahead of Toyota Camry drivers, who will have to pull over more frequently to refuel. The Accord's standard 4-cylinder engine achieves an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 27 mpg city and 37 mpg highway, with a combined (City/Hwy) rating of 31 mpg*. Toyota mid-size sedan drivers are sure to be jealous of those numbers, as the 2016 Camry can only muster 25 mpg city and 35 mpg highway, with a combined rating of 28 mpg. With up to a three mpg advantage over the Camry, it is no wonder that so many drivers are either switching to Accord, or passing on the Camry and buying a second or third consecutive Accord.
Given that the 2016 Honda Accord beats the Toyota Camry in standard fuel economy, you may think it safe to assume that the Camry is more powerful. In reality, though, the 2016 Accord once again trumps the Camry, with more standard horsepower and torque. The potent and efficient 4-cylinder engine found beneath the Accord's hood produces 185 horses and 181 lb-ft of torque. As these two mid-size sedan rivals have a nearly identical curb weight, the Accord's additional 7 hp and 11 lb-ft of torque are significant. If you want both fuel efficiency and power in your next mid-size sedan, choose the 2016 Honda Accord.
Both the 2016 Accord and Camry mid-size sedans offer a nice list of safety features, but the Honda edges out the Toyota in overall safety. The NHTSA awarded the 2016 Honda Accord with the highest, 5-Star Overall Crash Test Rating -- which means the Accord's safety can't be topped by any other sedan on the market. The Camry, on the other hand, received a few 4-star safety ratings, including in overall frontal crash, side pole crash, and rollover.
