2016 Honda Accord Dare to Compare
The biggest separation between the two cars has to do with technology and usability. In short, the Accord is stuffed with extra technological wonders like Apple Carplay, Android Auto, active lane keep, a lane watch camera and rain sensing wipers. And it comes with dual screens, the lower of which can finally do more than just display audio information.
For 2016, the Accord’s exterior design has been refreshed and features an overabundance of chrome, specifically the large strip across the grille. Still, with the LED headlights and larger 19-inch wheels, the Accord does look more modern compared to the Camry.
Honda offers a choice of six-speed manual or continuously variable transmission for the four-cylinder engine while Camry customers make do with a six-speed automatic. Once again, the Accord holds the fuel economy advantage as well, when equipped with the CVT, a 2 mpg increase in both categories over the Camry*.
