2015 Hyundai Sonata vs. 2015 Honda Accord

Mid-Missouri Drivers Shopping for the 2015 Hyundai Sonata, We Have News…

When you’re looking for a new car in the Mid-Missouri area, you have quite a large selection of mid-size sedans and coupes to choose from, but there’s a good chance that a few in particular have caught your eye. Like the 2015 Hyundai Sonata. Hyundai didn’t used to have much of a reputation for dependability, but in recent years, they have really stepped up their game. Features like a rearview camera, 5-inch touchscreen interface, and Hyundai Blue Link telematics set the Sonata apart from many other mid-size cars, but you need to upgrade past the basic ES trim to get access to them. The entry-level Sonata SE is pretty basic, with cruise control, air conditioning, and power accessories supplemented by Bluetooth—the only real modern feature.

Aren’t most of mid-size sedans in need of upgrades for modern features though? Many of them might be, but we know one that has been redefining the idea of what should be “standard features”: the 2015 Honda Accord. Honda’s Accord made it onto the 2015 Car and Driver 10Best list, setting a record for 29 times on the list. Honda’s been working on the Accord for nearly 40 years, and features like Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, Pandora internet radio, SMS texting, and 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a rearview camera with guidelines, and more all come standard on the Accord. Unlike the Sonata, Honda requires no upgrades for the Accord to come with modern features.

Take a look at our side-by-side comparison below, then stop by a Mid-Missouri Honda Dealer to see the Accord for yourself.
