2015 Honda Accord vs 2015 Toyota Camry
Whether you’re looking for a new family sedan or just a practical and affordable new car, you owe it to yourself to check out the 2015 Honda Accord. Available now in our new car inventory at Bosak Honda Highland, it’s one of the best-equipped and most affordable vehicles of its kind.
However, the mid-size sedan market is incredibly competitive these days, so how does a something like the 2015 Toyota Camry stand up to Honda?
Honda Builds an Affordable Sedan
There are quite a few reasons why a driver would choose the Accord over the Camry, but we’re going to start with the price. The 2015 Accord LX starts at just $22,105 (MSRP)* while the Camry is priced at $22,970. It may not seem like a big difference, but let’s take a closer look.
The 2015 Accord LX with CVT begins delivering on savings with its EPA-estimated fuel economy of 36 mpg on the highway and 27 mpg in the city,** beating out the Camry’s 35 highway mpg and 25 city mpg. Honda’s engine also offers more power (185 hp to 178 hp) and more torque (181 lb-ft to 170 lb-ft) than the Toyota.
The Accord Offers More for Less
So if you’re thinking that the Toyota must offer more in the way of features at that price, you’d be mistaken. Honda has been setting a new standard for “standard features” lately, and you can see them on display in the Accord.
The following features are found on every entry-level Accord but are either unavailable or require an upgrade on the Camry:
- Dual-zone automatic climate control
- 8-inch touchscreen interface
- Pandora internet radio
- SMS texting capabilities
- Expanded-view driver’s mirror
- 16-inch alloy wheels
We’re not quite sure what it is that makes the Toyota cost more than the Accord, but it certainly isn’t the features.
