We’re thrilled about this vehicle at Middletown Honda.  Drivers from Mechanicstown and beyond will find a lot to love in the new Accord, from its smart styling, to its impressive efficiency, to its exceptional features. Granted, the 2014 Accord is not alone in this segment: one of its biggest competitors is the 2014 Toyota Camry. So how do these two cars compare to one another?

The Accord Carries the Day

While some drivers will find the 2014 Toyota Camry to be a fine vehicle, you shouldn’t have to settle for “good.” The advantages of the Honda’s midsize sedan are numerous, and include:

  • Fuel economy is crucial for most drivers. The 2014 Honda Accord LX with Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) is capable of achieving 27 mpg city/36 mpg highway/30 mpg combined.* That outdoes the 2014 Toyota Camry LE, which manages 25 mpg city/35 mpg highway/28 mpg combined.
  • Despite its superior fuel economy, the new Accord LX gives you 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque while the Camry LE comes up a bit short with 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque.
  • The 2014 Accord also gives you more cargo volume and passenger volume than the 2014 Camry.
  • Some of the standard features you’ll find on the 2014 Accord are either optional or not available on the 2014 Camry include dual-zone climate control, a rearview camera, and hill start assist, among other things.
