Honda Accord vs. Honda Civic
If you’re considering a new Honda vehicle, you have numerous options to choose from. But if you’re looking for a sedan, the number of choices drops.
Two of the most popular Honda vehicles are the Honda Accord and the Honda Civic. Take a look at this vehicle comparison and then schedule a test drive at your local Honda dealer near Boca Raton, Greenacres, and West Palm Beach.
While both vehicles are sedans, the 2016 Honda Accord is a bit larger than the 2016 Honda Civic. Specifically, the Accord is slightly taller than the Civic, offers nearly 2 inches more in hip room in the front seat, and offers additional legroom in the rear seat thanks to its longer body.
In total, the Accord is over 10 inches longer than the Civic, which translates to increased shoulder room and slightly larger passenger volume.
On the other hand, while the additional interior space in the Accord is nice, its overall footprint is quite a bit larger. That means the Honda Accord is a bit more difficult to park in smaller spaces and gives the Civic a competitive advantage with those who like small cars.
Power and Capability
Both vehicles offer incredible fuel economy, but one of the biggest differences between them is what’s under the hood. While there are advantages to both vehicles, the Accord definitely has more power. It comes standard with a 2.4-liter I-4 16-valve DOHC direct injection engine that produces 185 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque.
On the other hand, the 2016 Honda Civic is equipped with an inline four-cylinder 16-valve DOHC i-VTEC engine with Single Scroll MHI TD03 Turbo and Internal Wastegate that produces 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque.
How does this translate in fuel economy? While the 2016 Honda Accord does offer more power, the 2016 Honda Civic offers a more competitive fuel economy, making it great for those on a budget.
Both vehicles are excellent options. The major differences come down to specifications and what you want your vehicle to be able to do. Overall, the Honda Accord is simply a larger version of the Civic and vice versa.
So if you’re looking for a small car, the Civic is the one for you. If you’re looking for something with a little more breathing room and power, the Accord is the better choice. Either way, you win.
