Accord vs Toyota Overview
This year, both the 2018 Honda Accord and the new Camry have undergone a few changes. The Accord offers a lighter profile and a longer wheelbase to create better balance and aerodynamics, as well as providing two more inches of legroom in the back, and 16.7 ft3 of trunk space, the largest in the segment.
New engine options improve performance, while a new cabin delivers an upscale, luxury experience with both a touchscreen and physical knobs for ideal control options on the infotainment system. Finally, you’ll also get a ton of new, active safety and driver aid features.
The Camry, on the other hand, gets a complete redesign this year, including a longer wheelbase and revised rear suspension. However, most of the key differences this year are style-based, as opposed to performance or features-based, so the Accord wins out in the “what’s new” arena.
Performance in the 2018 Honda Accord vs Toyota Camry
The base engine for the Honda Accord is a 1.5L inline-4 engine which gives you 192 horsepower and equivalent torque, with an available 2.0L engine which gives you 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual is available, but a CVT is standard.
The base 2.5L 4-cylinder engine for the Camry puts out a bit more power than the 1.5L engine for the Honda, but not as much as the 2.0L engine, and the bigger Toyota engine is only available at the very top trim levels, making it more expensive.
