Honda Accord vs Toyota Camry: Interior Dimensions
When it comes to selecting your next sedan, you’ll want a vehicle with ample room to create a relaxing everyday drive. So, to ensure you’re finding a ride with enough space for you to stretch your legs, let’s begin our Accord and Camry comparison with a breakdown of their cabin dimensions.
With over 42 inches of front legroom in the 2020 Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, you’re sure to have a comfortable experience behind the wheel, even when navigating through rush hour traffic. Taller drivers may prefer the Accord though, since it boasts 39.5 inches of front headroom while the Camry only has 38.3 inches.
Additionally, the Accord creates a roomier ride for your passengers as well with 40.4 inches of rear leg space, creating the ideal area for your backseat friends to relax in as you jet around in style. Things may get cramped during longer treks in the Camry though, since it only offers 38 inches of legroom to your rear passengers.
Load up your trunk with all your grocery or shopping bags and still have room leftover for your gym duffle with a standard 16.7 cubic feet of rear cargo space in the Accord. It even comes with a cargo area light to help you locate your items at any time of the day. However, you may have to leave some belongings behind with the Camry since its only have an available trunk space of 15.1 cubic feet.
Comfort Features in the 2020 Accord and Camry
These sedans provide a luxurious commute with amenities such as available ambient lighting, leather-trimmed seating, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. However, when it comes to comfort, once again, the 2020 Honda Accord comes out on top.
Relax into your roomy front seat and select your ideal driving position with an available 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seats with 4-way power lumbar support in the Accord. These premium seats are designed to help you find the perfect position to reduce fatigue during longer treks. Since the Camry only has an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat available, you may not be able to find the proper driving position for you.
Things are known for heating up quickly in the Sunshine state, so to help you cool off, these cars have available ventilated front seats. For chilly nights, they also feature heated front seats. When it comes to treating your passengers with the same amenities, the Camry leaves your friends out in the cold while the Accord has available heated rear outboard seats too.
Explore the Road Safely in the Accord and Camry
Safety is a top priority in the 2020 Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, each coming with their own standard premium suite of advanced safety systems. For example, the Accord has Honda Sensing® which includes the following technologies:
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™: Detects potential frontal collisions and, if necessary, applies the brakes to help you avoid impact altogether.
- Road Departure Mitigation System: Warns when you may have unintentionally left your lane and provides you with gentle steering corrections or, if needed, braking to help you get back on track.
- Adaptive Cruise Control: Maintains a safe following speed and distance between you and the car ahead, slowing, accelerating, and stopping you as traffic dictates.
- Lane Keeping Assist System: Provides steering adjustments to keep you firmly centered in your intended lane.
- Traffic Sign Recognition System: Reads the road and displays detected traffic signs on your Driver Information Interface or available Heads-Up Display.
While the Camry does have standard Toyota Safety Sense™ P that offers many similar features, it doesn’t come with a Lane Keeping Assist System. While it’s technologies will help to guide you back into your lane if you begin to drift, it doesn’t have a feature to keep you centered when powering down the freeway. Therefore, you may find yourself having to make more steering corrections behind the wheel of the Camry.
The Camry comes up short again by not offering a Traffic Sign Recognition System. It does have an available Heads-Up Display, too, to project essential driving information onto your windshield, but it doesn’t offer a comparable traffic sign recognition technology like in the Accord. Therefore, you may find yourself missing an important road sign when navigating the bustling road ahead.
