Check Out Some Comparison Highlights Below, Then Find Your New 2018 Honda Accord at Piedmont Honda

This head-to-head comparison is especially relevant because both the Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry underwent some rather big redesigns and updates for the 2018 model year, and since they've been rivals in the sedan segment for years, pitting them against one another is only right. The editors at Motor Trend spent a lot of quality time with both sedans—a 2018 Honda Accord 1.5T EX and a 2018 Toyota Camry 2.5 XLE—and we're proud to say, the 2018 Accord more than holds it's own against its longtime competitor. Check out some highlights from Motor Trend's comparison below, then join us here at Piedmont Honda to experience the redesigned 2018 Honda Accord for yourself.

Three Big Ways the 2018 Honda Accord Bested It's Rival, the 2018 Toyota Camry:

When Motor Trend picked these two longtime rivals for a head-to-head comparison, they must have known it would be an epic competition; here are just three of the areas where the 2018 Honda Accord got the better of the 2018 Toyota Camry—but you can see the entire comparison by visiting the article—we've linked to it after the short excerpt below!

  • It's What's Inside That Counts: When comparing redesigned interiors, the editors at Motor Trend were simultaneously underwhelmed by the 2018 Toyota Camry and very impressed with the 2018 Honda Accord. That has to do with the 2018 Accord's decidedly sophisticated approach to both design and materials. High-caliber materials make a difference, but using them right is key. The Motor Trend staff even noticed that, despite the 2018 Toyota Camry's leather upholstery, the 2018 Honda Accord's cloth-clad seats were still, far and away, the more comfortable choice.
  • Infotainment Functionality: Both redesigned sedans enjoy infotainment systems, but when it comes to how each one actually works the 2018 Accord's is the one that left a positive impression. It's more intuitive, quicker, and has sharper graphics than the 2018 Toyota Camry's system. Moreover, only the 2018 Honda Accord offers support for Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™.
  • Chassis Supremacy: While this difference isn't one you can see, take an exit ramp off the highway and you'll quickly realize the 2018 Honda Accord's chassis is markedly better than the 2018 Toyota Camry—and that's not just us saying it, it's the folks at Motor Trend. They found the 2018 Accord's chassis to be more responsive, a little sportier, and more in-control of body movements than the 2018 Toyota Camry's.


"Holistically, though, there’s no comparison. The Accord is more comfortable, spacious, and luxurious than the Camry. It’s quieter, rides and handles better, and drives more elegantly. It offers superior technology with a more user-friendly interface. Simply put, Toyota built a better Camry, but Honda built a better car." —excerpted from "2018 Honda Accord 1.5T vs. 2018 Toyota Camry 2.5 Comparison," written by Scott Evans for Motor Trend
