Hybrid cars are the wave of the future, and Detroit drivers looking for a new vehicle have a lot of advanced cars to choose from. We put two of the most popular hybrids, the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid and the 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid, head to head in this handy comparison showcasing their fuel efficiency, performance, safety, and features that set the two apart.
2017 Honda Accord Hybrid

Performance and Efficiency

Hybrid cars are favored for their amazing efficiency and low environmental impact. You can still have power while being environmentally conscious. The 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid is equipped with a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that’s capable of putting out 212 hp, while the Camry Hybrid’s 2.5L engine generates only 200 hp. The kicker is that while the Accord has more power, it’s also using fuel more efficiently, with an EPA-estimated 49 city/47 highway/48 combined mpg* to the Camry Hybrid’s fuel economy of 42 city/38 highway/40 combined mpg. That difference in fuel economy is going to save you more in the long run when you choose the Accord Hybrid.

Features and Space

The Honda Accord Hybrid has a number of standard features that are either not found in the Camry Hybrid or are only available at an additional cost. Simple convenience features like a universal garage door opener for easy garage entry, floor mats to protect your interior, and illuminated vanity mirrors make the Accord Hybrid a more driver-friendly vehicle than the Camry Hybrid. Not only does the Accord Hybrid offer more standard features, but it also boasts 13.7 cubic feet of cargo space compared to the Camry Hybrid’s 13.1 cubic feet and more head, hip, leg, and shoulder room. The 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid comes with second-row head restraints that are not available on the Camry Hybrid. The Accord also received a 5-star safety rating from the NHTSA*** in side pole crash and rollover safety tests, beating out the Camry’s 4-star ratings in the same categories.
