2017 Toyota Camry or the 2017 Honda Accord?

Posted Wednesday, Jun 07, 2017 by North Hollywood Toyota

Los Angeles Toyota dealers are proud to offer both the 2017 Toyota Camry and the 2017 Honda Accord this year. Both vehicles fulfill your expectations for midsize sedans, yet offer something a little bit new for drivers. Toyota is emphasizing comfort this year, making the Camry easy to use, while the Accord prioritizes space and economy. Both did exceptionally well in the area of reliability and durability. Not sure which to pick? Let’s take a look at some of the details.


The Toyota Camry

This year, the Camry seems to be unchanged—but that’s only at a face-value level. There are four trim levels from which to choose, and they range from basic to sporty to more luxurious. Choose from two engines—a 4-cylinder that’s adequate for entry-level driving and a V6 that’s a bit more robust. Both will give you good gas mileage, though the V6 naturally demands a bit more fuel. If you choose the V6, you get access to both of the top two trim levels and a few optional advanced safety features.

This sedan seats five and comes in your choice of four trim levels: the LE, SE, XSE, and the XLE. Each model comes with a 2.5-liter, 4-cylinder engine with 170 lb-ft of torque and 178 horsepower. The six-speed transmission makes shifting a dream. If you choose the from one of the top two trim levels, you have the option to select the V6 instead.

2017 Honda Accord

Last year, the Accord had some significant updates, and this year’s model continues that trend. The 2017 Honda Accord will appeal to people who want to prioritize space and fuel economy. It’s a beast in this regard, but it doesn’t sacrifice the driving experience or its value.

This year’s Accord is a carry-over, so the overall appearance remains the same. The Accord’s last full redesign happened in 2013, so you just can’t expect too much in terms of updates to its look. Most of the midsized sedans are playing a game of catch-up, so this isn’t unusual to see.

The current version of the Accord showcases Honda at its finest. It gets high scores in every category and is a pleasure to drive. For those of you looking for a roomy yet sporty coupe or a midsized family sedan, this is the car to drive.


Much like the Camry, the 2017 Accord comes loaded with a 2.4-liter standard 185-hp four-cylinder engine with the option to switch to a V6. The transmission differs; rather than just a six-speed, you have the option to include a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), but these upgrades come at a steep cost when compared to the more economical Camry.
