07-2016-accord-exterior-white-40West Michigan drivers shopping for a new mid-size sedan have one of the most diverse selections of vehicles to choose from; can the 2016 Hyundai Sonata features stand up against one of its top competitors, the 2016 Honda Accord? We put the two sedans side by side to help make your new car-buying decision a bit easier; take a look at a few key differences and decide for yourself which of these sedans fits better in your garage.

Setting a Standard on Features

Honda has been working hard to redefine the idea of “standard features,” and vehicles like the 2016 Accord have helped immensely with that. While the 2016 Hyundai Sonata features are certainly doing well to catch up, they are still behind the Accord in a few key areas:

  • Rearview camera: While the 2016 Hyundai Sonata includes a rearview camera, each new Accord has a multi-angle camera that gives you a look at what’s behind your car in top-down, wide-angle, and standard views.
  • Connectivity: While both vehicles feature Bluetooth connectivity, the 2016 Accord goes a step further and lets your smartphone send SMS texts straight to your in-vehicle display. You can even use apps like Pandora in your car, choosing and updating playlists just as if you were on your phone.
  • Honda Sensing: This available suite of driver-assistance and advanced safety features is available on every trim, including the base-level Accord LX, bringing safety to new heights with Collision Mitigation Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist, and more.

It can be easy to think that all new mid-size sedans are the same, with just a few things differentiating them, but the 2016 Honda Accord sets itself apart from the pack with advanced standard and available features and a unique sense of style.

Test Drive an Accord

When talking about cars, there’s only so much you can say in words; eventually, you need to get behind the wheel and experience a vehicle firsthand. We want to put you in the driver’s seat of the new 2016 Honda Accord so that you can see for yourself how much more it has to offer than the 2016 Hyundai Sonata features.
