In an SUV and crossover-obsessed world, the 2024 Honda Accord and 2024 Toyota Camry are standout choices in the shrinking U.S. sedan market. Honda recently overhauled the Accord with a new hybrid powertrain borrowed from the popular CR-V midsize SUV and a handsome exterior and interior redesign.
To maintain its position above the Accord in the sedan sales race, Toyota will likely reveal a new Camry soon.
Camry Is Cheaper and Offers More Powertrain Choices
The new Honda Accord's redesign comes at a small premium, opening at $29,000, while the Toyota Camry starts at about $1,500 cheaper. These starting prices are for the entry-level models that use four-cylinder engines.
The two base-model Accords, the LX and EX, feature a 192-hp turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine from the previous-generation model. The Camry's entry-level models have a naturally aspirated four-cylinder gas engine.
While all Accord models feature front-wheel drive (FWD), the Camry offers all-wheel drive (AWD) for an additional $1,400. Camry shoppers can also choose a powerful V6 engine making 301 horsepower in the top XLE, XSE, and TRD trims.
Additionally, both the Accord and Camry offer hybrid gasoline-electric powertrains. The base price for the Camry Hybrid undercuts the Accord, starting near $30,000 for the LE Hybrid. That model uses a 2.5-liter four-cylinder gas engine and an electric motor for a combined 208 horsepower.
The Accord's hybrid setup utilizes a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gas engine and an electric motor working together to make 204 horsepower. It starts at around $33,000.
Accord Gets More Tech
Both five-passenger sedans are relatively the same size outside, but the Honda Accord offers slightly more room inside, especially for the passengers in the back seats. In terms of technology, the Accord, with its new redesign, offers a few more features, too. Both sedans employ 7.0-inch touchscreens on the entry models.
The Accord steps up to a new 12.3-inch display on the higher trims, while the Camry upgrades to a 9.0-inch unit. All Accord models get standard Wi-Fi hot-spot capability, and the Sport, EX-L, Sport-L, and Touring models add built-in Amazon Alexa.
The Camry has many available packages that can add features such as a larger touchscreen and wireless charging on high-level trims.
Camry Hybrid Sedans Are More Fuel Efficient
The gas-only Accord is good for 29/37/32 mpg city/highway/combined while the gas-powered Camry gets 28/39/32 mpg. The Camry's base hybrid LE model is more fuel efficient than the Accord's hybrid option, with an EPA rating of up to 51/53/52 mpg.
The Camry SE, XLE, and XSE are rated at 44/47/46 mpg, while the Accord hybrid achieves an EPA rating of 51/44/48 mpg. The Camry also offers a sporty TRD model with a V6 engine and sport-tuned exhaust system, which reaches 22/31/25 mpg.
