2018 Toyota Camry Fuel Economy vs. 2018 Honda Accord

March 1st, 2018 by
Drivers of midsize sedans know the value in driving a car that achieves excellent fuel economy. Fortunately, there are many options on the road to choose from, with the 2018 Toyota Camry high among them. But how does it compare to another sedan on the road: the 2018 Honda Accord? When considered side by side, the Accord quickly outshines the Camry with better fuel economy, more features inside, and a better performance on the road. The Accord also comes with a lower MSRP, making it a better overall buy.

Fuel Economy

The Accord will allow drivers to drive longer distances on the road with fewer visits to the pump. 1.5T LX, EX, and EX-L models with CVT achieve an EPA-estimated 30 mpg in the city and 33 mpg combined.* The Camry, to compare, achieves an estimated 28 mpg in the city and only 32 mpg combined.


The Accord has one of the most well-equipped cabins on the road and brings state-of-the-art and luxurious features to its list of standard offerings that most comparable models don’t make available until the upper trim levels. With a look inside the entry-level Accord, drivers can expect to find dual-zone automatic climate control, floor mats, an illuminated vanity mirror, and stereo anti-theft, none of which are available on the base model Camry.


The Accord also outperforms the Camry on the road. The Accord produces 192 lb-ft of torque at 1,600 rpm, while the Camry produces just 184 lb-ft of torque and not until 5,000 rpm. That means that the Accord will accelerate more quickly, reach top speed in less time, and be able to merge onto the highway and change lanes much easier.


With more features, a better capability, and a better fuel economy, the Accord also comes at a more affordable price point than the Camry, giving drivers a better overall value. The Accord LX has an MSRP of just $23,570,** while the Camry starts at $24,000.
