2015 Toyota Camry vs. 2015 Honda Accord

Before Driving Home a 2015 Toyota Camry in West Michigan…

Drivers looking for a new sedan in West Michigan probably have a lot of different options on their mind, including the 2015 Toyota Camry. Toyota’s Camry has had something of a reputation as a cheap car since it came out, for better or for worse, but these days they have made the upper trim levels more competitive among mid-size sedans by including available features like dual-zone climate control and the 7-inch Toyota Entune system. We think that the Camry’s basic LE trim comes up short on features, with standard amenities limited to air conditioning, power accessories, a rearview camera, and Bluetooth.

We don’t think that the Camry is a bad choice, but West Michigan drivers have some better options available, including the 2015 Accord. The 2015 Honda Accord was named to Car and Driver’s 10Best list.* That’s a record of 29 times on the 10Best list for the Accord, and we think that alone puts it out of the range of the Camry, but we haven’t even gotten to the game-changing standard features of the Accord, which includes a rearview camera with guidelines, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Bluetooth for phone and audio, Pandora internet radio, SMS text message capabilities, steering wheel-mounted controls, and more. Did we mention that the 2015 Accord LX Sedans with CVT have an EPA-estimated 36 highway mpg and 27 city mpg,** compared to the Camry’s 35 highway and 25 city mpg?

West Michigan Honda Dealers wants to show you the Accord firsthand, but we think you should take one last look at the differences between these two sedans in our comparison below.
