Announcing itself with a striking front end and stylish grille, the 2017 Toyota Camry delivers a performance and overall experience that makes it perfect for Atlanta area drivers. With its commitment to balancing power, overall handling, and impressive efficiency, the Camry is the year’s sedan to beat. Take a look at this match-up with the 2017 Honda Accord. If the Camry seems like a good fit for you, head on over to Marietta Toyota for a test drive after you’ve done your research!

How Does it Perform?

Featuring a 3.5L 24-valve DOHC V6 engine, the 2017 Toyota Camry delivers 268 hp, which makes it more powerful than its competition. The 2017 Accord’s 2.4L inline-4 engine only offers 185 horsepower, which is significantly less than the Toyota. And where the front-wheel drivetrain of the Camry ensures a confident and smooth ride, the deficit in power of the Accord translates to a more laboured and sluggish ride. Both vehicles, however, do offer a stunning EPA-estimated 33 mpg highway.

Both vehicles offer a MacPherson strut front suspension and dual-link MacPherson strut rear suspension – this means both vehicles feature responsive and intuitive handling. But the Accord lacks the power behind the suspension that the Camry has. What’s more, the Camry features an anti-vibration sub-frame, which create a smoother, more stable ride while also reducing cabin noise. This reflects the Camry’s commitment to creating the most enjoyable, comfortable driving experience possible.

What Features Does it Offer?

Next we’ll take a look at the available features offered by the 2017 Camry:

  • Leather-trimmed seats
  • Multi-stage heated seats
  • Entune JBL premium audio system
  • Seven-inch high-resolution touchscreen
  • Integrated navigation
  • Integrated backup camera

Let’s compare those to the features offered by the Accord:

  • Available leather-trimmed seats
  • Heated front seats
  • 360-watt audio system
  • Seven-inch high-resolution display
  • Satellite-linked navigation
  • Rearview camera

Which Vehicle is Right for you?

The 2017 Honda Accord offers stiff competition, particularly when it comes to available interior features, but it cannot measure up to the offerings of its competitor. Only in fuel economy are the Accord and the 2017 Toyota Camry comparable; in every other key category, the Camry either edges out the Accord or holds a significant advantage. The Camry is more powerful, features a better overall performance, and offers more comprehensive interior features.
