2015 Honda Accord vs Toyota Camry vs Nissan Altima vs Hyundai Sonata
At Pohanka Honda Of Fredericksburg, we've compiled a competitor comparison so you can see how the 2015 Honda Accord stacks up against the 2015 Toyota Camry, 2015 Nissan Altima, and 2015 Hyundai Sonata.
Despite having a 2.4-liter engine inline four-cylinder engine, while the 2015 Camry and 2015 Altima have a 2.5-liter engine, the 2015 Accord has more horsepower and torque than either competitor, with 185 horsepower and 181 foot-pounds of torque. And if you like the feel and control of a manual transmission, it comes standard on the Accord.
If you want to upgrade, you get the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), which uses a drive belt and pulley system that allows you to seamlessly go through gears smoothly, and is a feature that increases performance and fuel efficiency. The 2015 Honda Accord also beats the Altima by being an ultra-low emissions vehicle; the Altima is just a low emissions vehicle. The Accord with CVT also comes standard with Hill Start Assist, which gives you a two-second assist if you are starting on an incline and need to accelerate. You won't find Hill Start assist on the Camry or Sonata.
The 2015 Honda Accord received a five-star rollover safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), while the Camry and Sonata only received four stars. In addition, the Accord beats both the Camry and Altima when it comes to second row head restraints. A confluence of safety and technology, the Accord comes standard with a rearview camera1, which isn't available on the Altima and is merely an option for the Sonata.
Interior comfort could be considered the key to a great car, and the Accord does not disappoint. Simple features like dual zone climate control and automatic climate control come standard on the Accord, and are not available on the Camry, Altima, or Sonata. Cruise control also comes standard on the Accord, but unavailable on the Altima, while an illuminated vanity mirror is also absent from the Altima and optional on the Camry.
Even something as simple as floor mats come with the Accord, but only optional on the Altima and Sonata and not featured on the Camry. The Accord also beats the Camry and Altima in passenger volume with 103.2 cubic feet and maximum cargo volume with 15.8 cubic feet.
