2016 Honda Accord exteriorWhen Albany drivers go searching for a new mid-size sedan, we know there are a variety of choices available, but if you’re looking at the 2016 Toyota Camry standard features and wondering “Is this all there is?”—you aren’t alone. The 2016 Honda Accord is one of the Camry’s top competitors, and we think that when you compare the capabilities of these two sedans, you’ll see why so many Accords have been on the road in and around Albany lately.

Honda Leads on Standard Features

Honda has been leading much of the auto world when it comes to features, and other automakers are struggling to catch up. Toyota does a better job than most, but there are still some places where the base 2016 Toyota Camry LE standard features fall behind those on the entry-level Accord LX Sedan.

  • Rearview camera: Each 2016 Honda Accord sports a multi-angle rearview camera that provides three distinct views whenever you shift into reverse. The Camry has a rearview camera, but you only get the standard view when backing up, no wide-angle or top-down views.
  • Accident prevention: In addition to the rearview camera, Honda gives drivers another safety edge. Honda Sensing safety features are available on each 2016 Accord trim, giving you access to collision mitigation braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and much more. Comparable features aren’t available on the Camry without significant trim level upgrades.

You can see the Honda safety edge again in the NHTSA safety tests, where the Accord LX Sedan outranks the Camry LE five stars to four on Overall Front Crash Safety, Side Pole Crash Safety, and Rollover Safety.

We think a much more comprehensive set of safety features and scores is reason enough to pause while considering the Camry, but there is so much more to the Accord. We haven’t even touched on its remarkable fuel efficiency or available V6 engine.
