2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid vs 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid
The Toyota Camry and Honda Accord have been direct rivals for generations. Both are midsize vehicles originating from Japanese automakers, boasting some of the very best stats and specs when it comes to safety and fuel efficiency, so they’re natural competitors. But it isn’t just the Camry vs the Accord anymore, is it? Now there are different versions of each: sedans, coupes and more. We’re interested to see the rivalry play out between two versions of the vehicle in particular, so we compared the 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid vs 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid.
Advantages of the 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid
Let’s glance at the table above, which showcases just how similar the two vehicles are. Each hybrid vehicle is powered by a 4-cylinder gas-powered engine alongside its hybrid powertrain, with the Camry Hybrid offering the larger of the two by 0.5 litres. Engine size doesn’t always create further differences or advantages, but in this case we thought it was important to note.
The next row showcases passenger volume, which is important in any vehicle regardless of the segment or class. With that in mind, this marks the Camry Hybrid’s biggest advantage, considering it provides an extra 6.5 cu. ft. of space for you and your passengers to stretch out and get comfortable in. Speaking of cabin space, another key advantage, though it might not seem like much, is the fact that the Camry Hybrid provides an extra 5.2 inches of rear leg room. If you’ve got tall friends that might have to squeeze into the back seat on occasion, they’ll definitely thank you.
Lastly, the 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid provides a slightly larger gas tank in the way of 1.2 extra gallons. While that doesn’t have a direct impact on fuel efficiency, it does mean you’ll have to stop for gas less often, considering it holds more fuel.
