HondaAccordAre you an Albany driver enticed by the 2015 Toyota Camry price? As an affordable mid-size sedan, we can understand why drivers might be drawn to the Camry, but would you believe that the 2015 Honda Accord Sedan is not only better equipped and more fuel efficient, but more affordably priced as well?

Let’s take a look at just a few of the differences that set the Accord above its Toyota competitor.

Greater Savings and More Features

While the prices of the Camry and Accord are similar, the Honda starts off more affordably priced and has a superior fuel economy:

  • The 2015 Honda Accord LX Sedan with 6-speed manual transmission is priced at $22,105 (MSRP)* and 2015 Accord LX Sedan CVT models earn an EPA-estimated 36 highway and 27 city mpg.**
  • The 2015 Camry, on the other hand, has a starting price of $22,970 and only manages 35 highway and 25 city mpg.

If you’re thinking to yourself that these are small differences in two mid-size sedans, you’re absolutely right. The savings the Accord has over the Camry are just the start. In addition to being more affordably priced, Honda’s sedan is helping to redefine the idea of standard features, and you can tell when you compare it to the Camry.

Honda gives drivers access to an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, a rearview camera with guidelines, dual-zone automatic climate control, a set of alloy wheels and much more on its basic LX trim level. The Camry requires upgrades to be on the same level as the Accord despite having the higher starting price.

Honda also gives drivers a wider variety of options on the Accord, with six trim levels on the sedan and four trim levels on the coupe (the Camry doesn’t even have a coupe available and only has four sedan trim levels).
