You can probably guess that the 2016 Toyota Camry LE horsepower puts it ahead of a few of its competitors, but when you compare it to the new 2016 Honda Accord, it comes up short on power, fuel economy, and standard features. We want to show you what the Accord is capable of in person, but first, let us take a look at how it compares to its Toyota competitor.
Comparing the Engine Specs
It might not be the first thing drivers think of when shopping for a mid-size sedan, but the engine specs matter. See how they compare side-by-side:
- The 2016 Toyota Camry LE has a 178-hp four-cylinder with 170 lb-ft of torque, and it earns 35 highway and 25 city mpg.
- The 2016 Honda Accord LX Sedan with CVT is rated at 185 hp, 181 lb-ft of torque, and earns an EPA-estimated 37 highway and 27 city mpg.*
While those specs are close, the higher power, torque, and fuel efficiency of the Accord shows that it has the superior engine. And you’ll notice the difference whenever you need to pass on the highway or when you go to fill up at the pump.
Features Set the Camry and Accord Apart
Many modern sedans have similar features, but the 2016 Honda Accord LX Sedan has an edge over the 2016 Camry LE with a couple of standard features:
- Automatic dual-zone climate control: Toyota’s 2016 Camry LE only features standard air conditioning and heating while every Accord comes with automatic dual-zone climate control as a standard feature.
- Multi-view rear camera: Many mid-size cars, including the Camry LE, come with a standard rearview camera, but the Accord goes one step further with a standard multi-view rear camera. See a standard, wide-angle, and top-down view before backing up.
The Accord LX also has access to the brand new Honda Sensing safety and driver assistance features package with collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, lane keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control.
