The Honda Civic and Honda Accord are two of Honda’s most popular cars, and choosing between these somewhat similar cars can be tough. We’ve put together a side-by-side comparison so you can decide which one has what you’re looking for.
The Accord is Honda’s mid-size sedan/coupe, so it has a lot more interior space and a longer body. The Civic, on the other hand, is a compact, with less space and a shorter build. If you need more space, go with the Accord; if you want something smaller and easier to drive, go with the Civic.
The Civic’s smaller size also means less horsepower, though its available turbocharged engine packs an impressive 174 hp. The Accord has a wider range of engine options and gets a max of 278 hp. When comparing the base models of both cars, the Civic gets better gas mileage, though the Accord comes in a hybrid model that gets an amazing 50 mpg in the city.
Safety and Technology
The Civic and Accord have almost the exact same features, including Honda LaneWatch and Apple CarPlay, and both were given 5-star ratings from the NHTSA and named a Top Safety Pick+ by the IIHS. So no matter what you decide to go with, you don’t have to worry about sacrificing safety features.
Both the Accord and the Civic are excellent cars with tons of standard features and great performance, but their differences in size, fuel economy, and performance should make it clear which one is right for you. Come to Brighton Honda today to test drive both vehicles and choose for yourself!
