It’s tough to nail down a definitive “best sedan for families,” but the 2017 Honda Accord certainly leaves its competitors wanting. Milwaukee drivers in need of a new sedan, see how the Accord compares to five of its top competitors in our rapid-fire comparison below.
Which Sedan Takes the Cake?
We know there’s no shortage of options in the midsize sedan world, but we also think it’s no coincidence that the 2016 Accord led its segment in sales. We’ve broken down the differences between the Honda sedan and its competitors into a few key points—but these are far from the Accord’s only advantages.
- 2017 Nissan Altima 2.5: Honda’s features reign supreme over the base Altima, with the Accord LX including amenities Nissan requires upgrades for—like a rearview camera, dual-zone climate control, and alloy wheels.
- 2017 Hyundai Sonata SE: Like the Altima, the Sonata lacks modern standard features, requiring upgrades for a rearview camera and dual-zone climate control; it also falls behind the Accord on ALG-estimated residual value.
- 2017 Toyota Camry LE: If fuel economy is a concern, the Camry should move to the bottom of your list, managing just 33 highway and 24 city mpg. The 2017 Accord Sedan LX CVT earns an EPA-estimated 36 highway and 27 city mpg.*
- 2017 Chevy Malibu LS: While the Malibu goes toe-to-toe with the Accord on efficiency, it trails on power, managing just 160 hp to the 185 hp of the Honda sedan—that’s a difference you’ll notice merging onto the highway or commuting to work.
- 2017 Ford Fusion S: The Fusion falls behind on power (175 hp) and fuel economy (34 highway and 22 city mpg) while also offering less interior space and less rear legroom.
Just by comparing to the competition, it’s easy to see that the Accord leads in areas of fuel efficiency, power, and features. Let us show you how easily the Accord can fit into your family budget.
