As far as small cars are concerned, this Honda sedan is often thought of as king. The 2015 Honda Civic offers a well-equipped basic trim level, a fuel-efficient engine, and an affordable entry-level price. While drivers and critics could say the same thing about the Accord, which we’ll get to in a minute, the Civic’s smaller size lets it have a more affordable price and a greater fuel economy.
Highlights of the Civic include:
- A 1.8L four-cylinder engine with 143 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque; when paired with a CVT, the 2015 Civic LX earns an EPA-estimated 39 highway and 30 city mpg.*
- The basic 2015 Civic LX Sedan with 5-speed manual transmission has a price of $18,490 (MSRP)** and comes with Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, a rearview camera, and a touchscreen infotainment system.
With seating for up to five and as much as 94.6 cubic feet of passenger space, you’ll have a hard time believing the Civic fits in its “small car” class.
So, what sets the 2015 Honda Accord apart from the Civic? Put simply, the Accord is bigger. While it also has five-person seating, the 2015 Accord adds 103.2 cubic feet of passenger space onto the Civic’s list of features and gives you two different engine options:
- The standard Accord LX has a 2.4L four-cylinder engine with 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque; 2015 Accord LX Sedan models with a CVT are rated at 36 highway and 27 city mpg.*
- Upgrading to the 3.5L V6 engine brings the power up to 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque; the 2015 Accord EX-L V6 with CVT is rated at an EPA-estimated 34 highway and 21 city mpg.*
The Accord’s size upgrade makes it an ideal option for a primary family sedan, and 2015 Accord LX Sedan models with 6-speed manual transmission are priced at $22,105 (MSRP).**
