With the baggage packed away in its own trunk space, mid-size sedans can dedicate cabin space to satisfying passengers through everything from plush seating to digital entertainment. Both the 2020 Honda Accord and Toyota Camry have succeeded at these goals and then some, but the success isn't shared evenly. Let's see who came out on top.
For optimal gas savings in the 2020 Accord, top efficiency comes from a 1.5-liter turbo-4 block joined to a CVT, continuously variable transmission, while the latest Camry does it with a standard 2.5-liter straight-4 also grouped with a CVT. The Accord's block furnishes 192 lb-ft of torque over the 186 lb-ft in the Camry. Drivers wanting a bit more muscle get their desires fulfilled by the Accord's 2-liter turbo-4 attached to a 10-speed automatic transmission for 273 lb-ft of torque. The Camry's entry in this category, a standard 3.5-liter V6 fastened to an 8-speed automatic transmission, is held to 267 lb-ft of torque. Also, the Camry is limited to just a pair of choices, while the 2020 Accord lets buyers get in touch with their inner sports car enthusiasts by supplying a 6-speed manual transmission alternative in the Accord Sport.
As opposed to the 100.4 cubic feet of passenger space in the 2020 Toyota Camry, the 105.6 cubic feet in the Accord is put to very effective use. It begins up front with 39.5 inches of headroom instead of the more confining 38.3 inches in the Camry. Legs also get to stretch freely, with 42.3 inches up front and 40.4 inches in the second row. This easily surpasses the Camry's 42.1 inches in the first row and 38 inches in the next. The expansiveness doesn't end there, though, with the 2020 Accord offering 16.7 cubic feet of trunk space to handle more packages, gear, or whatnot than the more restrictive 15.1 cubic feet found in the 2020 Camry.
There is no question that the Accord and Camry for 2020 give stellar safety performances. The 2020 Accord can drop from 70 mph to a total standstill in just 162 feet. The Toyota Camry takes 175 feet to accomplish the same results. To be sure, either sedan uses traction and stability control, antilock brakes, a backup camera, and airbags to keep passengers secure. They have even added more sophisticated protections like auto-braking if a threat is spotted ahead and automated steering to put the vehicle back on track if a combination of road markings and driver behavior indicate unintentional lane departures. But Honda boosts its game by equipping the 2020 Accord with traffic sign recognition software that identifies traffic signs and alerts the driver to them.
