Value can be a funny thing, but at West Michigan Honda Dealers, we think that one of the best ways to measure the value of a vehicle like the 2014 Toyota Camry is to look at its features, fuel economy, and overall performance and see if it stacks up.
For comparison, let’s look at the 2014 Honda Accord.
Honda Trounces Toyota
When you’re looking at a mid-size sedan, there are plenty of different factors that can come into play, but the fuel economy is usually at the top of the list. The Camry gets 35 mpg on the highway and 25 mpg in the city—not bad. But the 2014 Accord LX with continuously variable transmission gets an EPA-estimated 36 mpg on the highway and 27 mpg in the city.*
Those are savings that will add up with every trip to the pump. Not only does the Accord get a better fuel economy, but its engine offers more power and torque—185 hp and 181 lb-ft compared to the 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of the Camry—indicating superior engineering for a more powerful and more efficient sedan.
And then there are the features. While the Camry is not sparsely equipped, few vehicles can compete with the standard equipment of the 2014 Honda Accord. From its Bluetooth connectivity to its 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system to its rearview camera, the Accord tops many vehicles that try to compete with it.
