Price is one of the most important factors to consider as part of your search for a new small car, but it can occasionally be misleading. When faced with a choice between two similarly priced vehicles, like the 2017 Toyota Camry and the 2017 Honda Accord, it’s essential to look past the price tag to see what each automobile is really offering! We’ve done the comparisons, and it turns out that next year’s Accord is both better-performing and better-equipped than the 2017 Camry. If you want to get more for the price you’re paying, read on to see how we think the Honda Accord is the right choice.
Trims and Pricing
Both the 2017 Toyota Camry and the 2017 Honda Accord can be purchased in a wide variety of styles, and both have a hybrid version available. There’s not much difference in the price of their base trims, but Honda has a slight edge: the Camry LE will cost you around $23,070 MSRP, while the Accord Sedan LX 6MT is priced at $22,355 MSRP.* Pricing remains competitive if you decide to upgrade. The Camry’s top non-hybrid trim, the XSE, is priced at $26,310 MSRP, and the comparable Accord Sedan EX 6MT trim can be yours for $25,730 MSRP.*
The Accord continues its advantage, offering several more trims over and above those that have already been mentioned. You’ll pay somewhat more for these trims—the high-end Accord Touring trim is priced at $34,830 MSRP*—but you’ll be receiving key features like satellite-linked navigation that you won’t get from Camry.
If you prefer a hybrid option, consider this: The base-model 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid is priced at $29,605 MSRP,* while a similar option from Toyota will cost you $26,790. However, that initial price difference is easily made up in efficiency in the Accord Hybrid, which gets an EPA-estimated 49 city mpg** compared to the Camry’s 42 city mpg!
Unique Special Features
You don’t have to upgrade completely to start seeing the advantages of the 2017 Honda Accord. Even in their base trims, Honda is offering their drivers many more technology and convenience features.
