Camry vs Accord: Fuel Efficiency

One of the best things about the Toyota Camry is that it offers remarkable EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings. With up to 29 city/41 highway MPG, fueling up at the pump can be a much more enjoyable process.1 That’s a lot more to enjoy than if you’re driving the Honda Accord. This midsize sedan only manages to achieve around 38 miles per gallon on the highway.

Toyota Camry vs Honda Accord: Performance

Fortunately for you, Toyota doesn’t see power and efficiency as mutually exclusive. The 2020 Camry offers powerful 4-cylinder and V6 engines, and which one you choose will depend on your lifestyle.

  • 2.5-liter Dynamic Force 4-Cylinder Engine: as much as 206 horsepower and 186 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.5-liter V6 DOHC 24-Valve Engine: as much as 301 horsepower and 267 lb-ft of torque

This is an area in which Honda doesn’t excel as much. Their base model’s engine only clocks in at 192 horsepower, while even their top model’s powerplant peaks at 252 horsepower. Both of those numbers are disappointing compared to the Toyota Camry specs that we just mentioned. Reach out with questions!

Toyota Camry vs Accord: Safety

Finally, let’s take a look at safety—one of the most important considerations for you and your loved ones.

The 2020 Camry model’s standard Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) equips the car with some of the most advanced driver-assistive technologies on the market today. Here are some of the most important ones:

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/ PD)
  • Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC)
  • Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist (LDA w/ SA)
  • Automatic High Beams (AHB)

Luckily, the 2020 Accord model’s standard Honda Sensing® suite includes some comparable technology. For example, you’ll find that their Collision Mitigation System™ (CMBS) is similar to the 2020 Toyota Camry model’s Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/ PD) that we just mentioned.

Both of these state-of-the-art technologies are able to detect when there’s a possible impending frontal collision with a vehicle up ahead. If the software determines that the collision is unavoidable, it’ll actually apply automatic braking support to help reduce the damage of the impact. Our experts can tell you lots more about this.
