Outside of luxury models, sedans don’t commonly have an all-wheel-drive option. Which is a shame, because AWD is very useful for sedans. Toyota has recognized this and included all-wheel drive as an available option on the 2020 Camry. This feature is not available on the current Accord.
In the power department, the Camry outpaces everything that the Accord has to offer. With its top V6 engine, it can crank out up to 301 horsepower, but its standard engine is no slouch either with 203 horsepower, which is more than the Accord offers standard with its 1.5-liter 192-horsepower engine.
In terms of efficiency, the Camry just gives you better numbers out on the highway, which is where Americans spend most of their driving time anyway. The Camry manages this improved efficiency with higher horsepower through a super-smooth 8-speed transmission.
When you get a car, you want to have the latest in infotainment tech. Currently, that means Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Both can seamlessly integrate with a compatible smartphone to give you superior audio options and you can even utilize your phone’s native navigation to get you exactly where you need to go. Sadly, you have to go up two trim levels and nearly $3,000 in MSRP on the Accord to get those features.
