2016 Toyota Avalon vs 2016 Honda Accord
While the word flagship might sound like it would represent the most popular option or the one someone is throwing all of their support behind, in the automotive market a flagship vehicle is simply the most luxurious option. It’s the top-of-the-line vehicle, packed with the best features, specifications and is, generally, the largest of a certain line. So an automaker could potentially have both a flagship sedan and flagship crossover, et cetera.
For Toyota, the flagship sedan is the Avalon. Honda is generally seen as our brand’s biggest competitor, so we wanted to pit each brand’s flagship against one another, but Honda doesn’t exactly have a full-size flagship sedan. Instead, we figured we’d just pit our flagship against Honda’s biggest vehicle, so we compared the 2016 Toyota Avalon vs 2016 Honda Accord.
Advantages of the 2016 Toyota Avalon
As you can tell by looking at the table above, the Honda Accord is certainly not delivering specifications on par with the Avalon. Its engine cannot touch the Toyota’s, as the Avalon delivers an extra 110 horsepower and 120 pound-feet of torque. Although it’s not listed above, the one area the Accord does fire back in, which might be obvious from its lacking power, is fuel efficiency.
But space is just as important in a sedan as power and efficiency, and considering the Avalon is a full-size it does deliver slightly more space. Its trunk is 0.9 cubic feet larger, and the cabin offers an extra 6.7 cu. ft. of space for you and your passengers to stretch out and get comfortable in. But space and power are just two specs that the Avalon is superior in. It is also packed with premium content and the best features Toyota has to offer.
