Performance Disparity Between Honda Accord and Toyota Camry
The 2017 Honda Accord and the 2017 Toyota Camry are on-par with many of their competitive categories. Still, one in which there’s a major difference is in the performance capabilities between the two vehicles.
For instance, the 2017 Honda Accord is powered by a 2.4L I-4 engine that produces up to 185 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque. This standard engine is paired with a manual six-speed transmission that is both fun to drive and incredibly efficient.
On the other hand, the 2017 Toyota Camry is powered by a 2.5L I-4 engine that produces just 178 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque. This standard engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and the vehicle is not even offered with a manual transmission at all.
Of course, while many buyers prefer an automatic transmission, that addition will simply bring the starting MSRP of the Honda Accord at level with that of the Toyota Camry, whereas the sportier and more youthful manual transmission is the most affordable option.
Variations in Available Features Between Camry vs. Accord
Another point of concern for buyers considering the 2017 Toyota Camry and the 2017 Honda Accord is the difference between features available in each of the two vehicles. To get an accurate picture of how the two vehicles line up, we also looked at the two vehicles’ top trim levels: the Accord Touring and the Camry XLE. While many features lined up, there are a few notably missing from the top level of one option.
Several features are completely missing from the Camry XLE, including fog lamps, rear parking aid, remote engine start, a navigation system, heated rear seats, seat memory, integrated turn signals in the exterior side mirrors, and a hands-free communications system. All of these features are included in the 2017 Honda Accord Touring along with a more powerful engine than the standard.
The robust engine is a 3.5L V6 that produces up to 278 horsepower and 252 lb-ft of torque. It far surpasses some of the competition. For example, the Camry XLE is equipped with a 3.5L V6 engine that tops out at just 268 horsepower and 248 lb-ft of torque.
