2020 Honda Accord vs Toyota Camry

Honda Accord vs Toyota Camry: Infotainment

If you’re looking for connectivity on the go, the 2020 Accord and 2020 Camry have advanced multimedia systems with many of the latest and greatest features. Both systems offer a standard 7-inch touchscreen (8-inch versions are available) with Bluetooth® wireless technology, so you can make calls without letting your hands leave the wheel.

The Accord also has available Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ functions. You can use them to connect your smartphone intuitively and access your messages, music, and apps from the multimedia screen. The Camry’s system is highly advanced and also makes these popular features available.

Interior Dimensions

In both the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, generous amounts of front legroom will keep even the tallest passengers satisfied, with each ride offering just over 42 inches. But, in the rear, the Accord’s 40.4 inches of rear legroom gives you more room to stretch your legs than the Camry’s 38 inches. When it comes to passenger volume, the Honda Accord provides 105.6 cubic feet of room, while the Toyota Camry provides just 100.4 cubic feet. Full-grown adults should feel plenty comfortable in the Accord’s backseat on long rides.

Performance Specs

The base I4 engines in the 2020 Accord and Camry are similarly powerful, but when it comes to torque, the Honda Accord beats out the Toyota Camry. The Honda Accord provides 192 lb-ft, while the Toyota Camry provides just 184 lb-ft. When you need to accelerate from a stop light/sign or merge with express-way traffic, these engines can handle the job.

However, test drivers have reported quite a bit of engine noise when accelerating in the Camry, plus road and wind noise when driving at highway speeds. Meanwhile, Accord test drivers have experienced a quiet cabin that blocks out engine and wind noise while speeding up, which makes for a more restful ride.

Safety and Security: Driver-Assistive Safety Features

When it comes to driver-assistive safety features, these two sedans are pretty well-matched. The 2020 Honda Accord comes standard with the Honda Sensing® safety suite, while the 2020 Toyota Camry comes standard with the Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) package. Here, we’ll break down what you’re getting from each of these safety systems.

2020 Honda Accord vs Toyota Camry

Cruise Control. The Honda Accord comes with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) and the Toyota Camry comes with Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. Both systems help you maintain one set speed and keep a safe distance behind the cars in front of you.

Lane Keep Assistance. With the Accord you get the Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) and with the Camry you get Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist. Both systems alert you when they sense you swaying out of your lane and provide you with gentle steering assistance.

Collision Warning. Honda provides the Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) and Toyota provides Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection. Both of these features can help you avoid a potential collision through warning alerts and helping to apply brake pressure in the event of an emergency.

Traffic Sign Recognition. Here is where the Accord comes out on top against the Camry when it comes to safety features. While this is standard in the Accord, it’s not offered with the Camry. The Traffic Sign Recognition feature improves safety by reminding you of roadside information, like the speed limit.

Comfort and Convenience

2020 Honda Accord vs Toyota CamryTo make sure everyone in the car is perfectly comfortable, the Accord provides the standard Dual-Zone Automatic Climate Control System—this exact feature isn’t available with the Toyota Camry. Also standard in the Accord is the Illuminated Vanity Mirror and floor mats. The Camry offers the Illuminated Vanity Mirror standard, but the floor mats are available as an add-on for an additional cost.

The Accord and the Camry also both offer the available HomeLink® Universal Remote System. Alloy wheels are standard on the Honda Accord, but they’re extra on the Toyota Camry.

2020 Honda Accord vs Toyota Camry: The Verdict
