2017 Honda Accord Hybrid vs. 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid
The 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid is the first Accord Hybrid since 2015, and the benefits of that extra time are obvious when you compare the vehicle to a competitor like the 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid. Malin and Keno drivers might have struggled to choose a hybrid in previous years, but the Accord Hybrid’s ability to combine top-notch power, efficiency, and technologies has placed it at the top of its segment.
Powertrains and MPG
Malin and Keno drivers who are in the market for a hybrid vehicle will be expecting to sacrifice a certain degree of power and performance to attain outstanding efficiency ratings. With the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid, no sacrifices are necessary.
A 2.0L i-VTEC Atkinson Cycle engine has been paired to a Dual-Mode system to ensure up to 212 hp. That’s 16 more horsepower than the 2015 model and more than other hybrid sedans on the market. Instead of a traditional transmission, the Dual-Mode system cycles between three drive modes: EV Drive, Hybrid Drive, and Engine Drive. Ultimately, you’ll be able to achieve up to 49 mpg in the city and 47 mpg on the highway.*
The 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid boasts less power while demanding more fuel. Its output of 200 hp and mileage ratings of 42 in the city and 38 mpg on the highway might be impressive in isolation, but they pale in comparison to what the 2017 Accord Hybrid is able to offer Malin and Keno drivers.
Just a quick look at the power and mileage specs of the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid is enough to demonstrate just how revolutionary a vehicle this is. However, the painstaking design process yielded benefits beyond performance and efficiency. For example, the reduced size of the battery pack has helped deliver a trunk with more space, so you’ll find up to 13.7 cubic feet in the Accord Hybrid vs. just 13.1 with the 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid.
The entire cabin has been made as comfortable as possible, with high-grade materials used throughout and a marked absence of cheap plastics. Drivers will also benefit from improved headroom: there’s up to 39.5 inches in the Accord Hybrid vs. just 38.8 in the Camry Hybrid.
Comfort and Convenience Features
The spacious dimensions of the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid make it a far more welcoming model than the 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid, which also lacks many of the former’s enviable features, including:
- Apple CarPlay®/Android Auto™: Use either Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™ to sync your smartphone and then use a growing number of its functions on the Accord Hybrid’s 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen.
- Heated Rear Seats: The temperatures can really drop during the winter months. Both the Camry Hybrid and Accord Hybrid offer heated front seats to help you weather the weather, but only the Honda can add heated rear seats into the bargain.
- 10-Way Power Seats with Memory Function: Moves along 10 planes of motion and offers memory settings to let you snap your seat back to your preferred configuration with ease.
The 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid offers Malin and Keno drivers an enviable range of driver-assistance features with the Honda Sensing Suite:
- Collision Mitigation Braking System: Applies the brakes automatically in order to avoid or lessen the effects of a frontal collision.
- Adaptive Cruise Control: Adjusts your cruising speed up and down to compensate for the shifting distance between your Accord and the vehicle ahead.
- Road Departure Mitigation: Brings your vehicle back to center if you are detected leaving the road without signaling.
- Lane Departure Warning: Deviate from your lane without signaling and a warning will be provided.
- Lane Keeping Assist: Applies gentle corrective steering pressure to set you back on course if you fail to react to the Lane Departure Warning System.
- Forward Collision Warning: If a frontal collision becomes likely, an alert will sound to help you react accordingly.
The 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid also offers a few of these advanced safety features, but only the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid is happy to offer the entire range as standard with every model.
