Which of these sedans would you put in the driveway?

We’re obviously biased; given the choice, we’d definitely take the Orlando Toyota Camry over the Honda Accord. However, we know you want the facts, especially since these two cars do have a lot of similarities. Let’s break it down!

Price: Our new Toyota takes the honor in this category. The 2019 model starts at $23,945 and ranges up to $34,700. Its Honda competition starts at $23,720 and ranges up to $35,950. Our new Toyota is a better buy overall – in fact, it was even named 2019 Best Midsize Car for the Money by US News and World Report.

Interior comfort and quality: Both of these midsize sedans offer a comfy and plush interior; however, the 2019 Toyota Camry edges ahead by not incorporating the cheaper plastic pieces that the Accord utilizes in its interior. It’s a small factor, but it makes a big difference in overall interior appeal.

Technology: Our new Toyota comes out ahead in this category, too. Although both cars offer a 7″ display touchscreen with Bluetooth and USB ports, the 2019 Toyota Camry offers standard Apple CarPlay, a feature that a lot of drivers have been wanting for the past few years. Plus, our Orlando Toyota offers six speakers while its Honda competition only offers four.

Performance: We think you’ll prefer our 2019 Toyota in this category because of its get-up-and-go. Both cars come in 4-cylinder and V6 engine options. However, despite Honda’s turbocharged 4-cylinder, it still gets less horsepower than its Toyota counterpart for both engine options. The Toyota Camry also wins when it comes to fuel efficiency, getting 29/41/34 mpg while the Honda gets 30/38/33 mpg. The hybrid model of this new Toyota also comes out ahead with 51/53 mpg while its Honda competition gets 47/47 mpg.

Safety: What about safety tech? Again, our 2019 Toyota comes out the winner. It offers a few extra features like pedestrian detection and automatic high beams. It also earned an IIHS Top Safety Pick + rating for 2019, while the Honda Accord was only rated an IIHS Top Safety Pick (no +).

Reliability: And finally, let’s talk about one of Toyota’s most renowned qualities – reliability. The ratings are out from J.D. Power for 2019 yet, but for 2018, the Toyota model earned a 4.5 out of 5 while the Honda competition earned a 4 out of 5. We’ll let you think on that.
