2013 Honda Accord vs the Hyundai Sonata

2013 Honda Accord SedanAt Middletown Honda we’re excited to have the 2013 Honda Accord Sedan in our showroom, and drivers in Mechanicstown and the surrounding communities can check it out now. The Accord has long been a top choice for those looking for a functional family sedan, and the 2013 model is no different. That said, it’s got a number of competitors from a variety of automakers. Here is how it stacks up to the 2013 Hyundai Sonata.


Top Quality Safety Features

Both the Sonata and the Accord feature a series of top-quality safety features. Driver and front passenger dual-stage airbags, front side airbags, and side-curtain airbags are all standard. Electronic vehicle stability control and traction control, as well as anti-lock brakes, also come standard on all models. The Accord pulls ahead, though, with the addition of electronic parking assist with standard rearview camera for safety and ease parking. Both vehicles include an electronic tire pressure monitoring system, brake assist, and electronic brake-force distribution.


Comfort and Convenience Features

The 2013 Honda Accord Sedan comes out ahead in interior comforts by offering dual-zone automatic climate control as a standard feature. That said, both vehicles include power windows and locks and cruise control. The Accord also offers increased leg and hip room for increased comfort.


Engines and Transmissions

While the Accord and the Sonata have nearly identical 2.4L 4-cylinder engines, the Accord wins by giving you a choice. While you can choose either the Accord or the Sonata with a manual transmission, only the Accord gives you the option of a continuously variable automatic transmission.
