MPG Delivery

Between the Accord and the Camry, it’s the Accord that will save drivers more when they step up to the pump.

2017 Accord Sedan models equipped with a CVT deliver EPA-estimated fuel economy of 27 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway.*

In contrast, the Camry achieves only between 21 and 24 city mpg and between 30 and 33 highway mpg.

The Accord also features a larger fuel tank (17.2 gallons compared to 17.0 gallons in the Camry), which enables drivers to travel a bit farther between fuel stops.

Engine Offerings

A look under the hood once again reveals the Honda Accord to be the winning vehicle when compared with the Toyota Camry.

The Accord lineup features two engine options:

  • Standard 2.4L i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine that generates up to 189 hp and up to 182 lb-ft of torque
  • Available 3.5L i-VTEC V6 engine that produces 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque

Neither of the Toyota Camry’s comparable engines are as powerful as the Accord’s engine offerings.

The Camry’s standard 2.5L 4-cylinder engine brings just 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque, while the available 3.5L V6 engine delivers just 268 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque.
