2018 Toyota Camry vs 2018 Honda Accord

Serving Florence, Fort Mitchell, and Burlington, KY

The 2018 Toyota Camry is a mid-size sedan that has intelligent technology in the cabin and efficient installations under the hood. Also having a mid-size body, the Honda Accord is known for its durability. Available with the Entune 3.0 infotainment system, the Camry offers more connectivity amenities than the Accord. A 10.0-inch head-up display (HUD) and the Toyota Safety Sense P also give the Camry an advantage in driving assistance.

Capabilities

What makes the 2018 Toyota Camry more capable than the Honda Accord? It's the 3.5 L V6 engine that reaches a peak output of 301 horsepower. As it revolves at 4,700 RPM, this six-cylinder engine delivers up to 267 lb-ft of torque. Carrying the Dynamic Force badge, the 2.5 L I-4 engine is rated at 206 hp and 186 lb-ft of torque. Despite getting a boost from a single-scroll turbocharger, the Honda Accord's 1.5 L VTEC engine falls short of the Dynamic Force engine's attributes. Additionally, the 2.0 L turbo engine is still overpowered by the Camry's V6 engine. If optimum efficiency is your preference in the Camry, you could opt for a hybrid system that has a net output of 176 hp and 163 lb-ft of torque. This efficient powertrain can run on the Normal, Sport or Eco settings. A sealed lithium-ion or nickel-metal hydride battery is integrated into the hybrid assembly. Additionally, the hybrid models are equipped with the Electronically Controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (ECVT) system that includes the Sequential Shift mode. A similar CVT with a Sport Mode is available in some of the Accord trims.

Digital Technology

The all-new Entune 3.0 infotainment system in the 2018 Camry has an 8.0-inch touch screen. You can access a built-in GPS navigation system with colored maps and the Dynamic POI Search function. With a valid subscription to the Entune Connect package, you could use plenty of other applications, such as the Destination Assist. Powered by Verizon, a wireless internet network is available in this Toyota sedan. Bluetooth and Siri Eyes Free are other smartphone-friendly installations in the Entune suite. If you're seeking premium entertainment on the road, just scan hundreds of channels on HD Radio or SiriusXM Satellite Radio. Rated at 800 watts, the JBL sound system with Clari-Fi offers richer acoustics than the Honda Accord's 10-speaker audio system that produces up to 450 watts.

Driving Assistance

Installed within the line of sight of the driver, a 10-inch head-up display (HUD) in the 2018 Camry minimizes distractions. You can also glance at the 7.0-inch Multi-Information Display (MID) that replaces an analog instrument cluster. The Honda Accord's HUD is slightly smaller than the Camry's HUD. When equipped with the Safety Sense P, this Toyota will likely avoid crashes. The Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control take immediate action to prevent an imminent forward crash. The Steering Assist will also come on if you don't adequately react to the Lane Departure Alert. When backing up, you'll get help from the Intelligent Clearance Sonar and Rear-Cross Traffic Braking. Even when equipped with the Honda Sensing technology, the Accord lacks some of the innovative active safety features that are available in the Camry.
