2021 Accord vs Camry: InteriorOf course, interior comfort is about more than just roominess. The Camry has an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, giving you plenty of freedom to find a comfortable position. However, the Accord takes it one step further with an available 12-way power-adjustable driver’s seat. Both have power lumbar support for increased comfort, even on long commutes.

To top it off, dual-zone automatic climate control comes standard across all trim levels in the Honda Accord. With this system, you and your front passenger can each find your preferred interior temperature no matter what the weather is outside. In the Toyota Camry, front air conditioning comes standard with dual-zone automatic climate control available as an upgrade.

Accord vs Camry: Convenience Options

Accord vs Camry: Convenience OptionsPush button start is another thing that’s standard in the Accord but only available as an upgrade in the Camry. Even when you upgrade to a model that offers keyless entry and push-button start, the Accord continues to outperform its competition.

The Honda Accord offers Walk Away Auto Lock®, which allows your car to automatically lock itself when you walk away with the key. This feature is great if you often find yourself wondering whether you remembered to lock your car. The Camry doesn’t offer a comparable feature.

When you’re shopping for a midsize sedan, it’s also important to consider trunk space. After all, you want to make sure your new car has plenty of room to haul groceries, luggage, or gym gear. Again, the Accord is the clear winner.

An Entertaining Ride

An Entertaining RideBoth the Accord and the Camry come with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration. With these standard systems, you can pair your smartphone, use its various applications, and stay connected while driving:

-Make calls

-Send text messages

-Look up directions

-Listen to your library of music

However, the Honda Accord will give you a better view of this interface on its 8-inch high-resolution Display Audio touch-screen. The 2021 Camry comes standard with a 7-inch touch-screen in comparison.

The Accord also offers a better sound system for drivers who want high-quality audio. The premium audio system provides ten speakers, including a subwoofer. The JBL® premium audio system in the Camry also has a subwoofer, but only includes nine total speakers.

Fuel-Efficient Performance

Fuel-Efficient PerformanceWith either car, you’ll enjoy smooth, fuel-saving performance as you cruise along the highways. How about when you’re just driving locally or commuting around the city?

The 2021 Honda Accord will still do a good job at conserving fuel since it gets an EPA-estimated 30 city/38 highway MPG with the LX and EX-L trims as well as the Sport trim when equipped with the 2.0T engine.1 The Toyota Camry gets an EPA-estimated 28 city/39 highway MPG.

For even more fuel efficiency, both models offer available hybrid powertrains that improve each of their fuel economies.

2021 Accord vs 2021 Camry: Safety

2021 Accord vs 2021 Camry: SafetyThe Accord and Camry each come with an impressive amount of safety features, which includes some of the most innovative safety features you can get within a car. With the 2021 Honda Accord, you’ll get the Honda Sensing® Suite, which is a collection of driver-assistive technologies, including:

-Collision Mitigation Braking System™

-Adaptive Cruise Control

-Lane Keeping Assist System

-Traffic Sign Recognition System

By helping you stay aware of your driving and other drivers on the road, these systems can help you safely reach your destination. The Toyota Camry comes with Toyota Safety Sense™ 2.5+, which has technologies that can assist in the same way as the above features.

One difference between their standard safety technology is found in their rearview cameras. The 2021 Camry comes with a standard backup camera that provides a view of your projected path as you start to reverse the car.

With the Honda Accord, you’ll get the multi-angle rearview camera with dynamic guidelines as a standard feature. This system allows you to choose among three different angles: normal, top-down, and wide. With multiple options, you can get a better view of what’s behind you when backing up your car into a parking spot or out of your driveway onto the street. The Camry only offers a similar camera system in higher trim levels.
