2016 Honda Civic Sedan vs 2016 Honda Accord Sedan
While one tends to get most of the spotlight, due to being the best-selling passenger car in Canada for 17 years in a row, the Honda lineup offers two of the most popular sedans available on the market: the Civic and Accord. Considering the Civic was just completely remodeled for the 2016 model year, and the Accord got its own makeover to boot, we thought we’d take a closer look at the two sedans side by side to analyze their differences and advantages, by comparing the 2016 Honda Civic Sedan vs 2016 Honda Accord Sedan.
Differences Between the 2016 Honda Civic Sedan, Accord Sedan
While the Civic changed down to its very core, both Honda sedans received cosmetic changes making them sportier than ever before. Honda vehicles in specific, but in a broader sense the market as a whole, is turning more towards sporty appearances. Honda is certainly jumping on that train, creating the sportiest lineup of Civic models the world has ever seen, and they followed suit with the Accord by giving it a facelift at the same time
But what we want to look at here are the differences between the Civic and Accord in terms of specifications. What is one good for that the other might not be? That’s what the table above is for. You can tell that on one hand, the Civic offers superior efficiency, but on the other the Accord offers more space. Neither advantage is all that substantial, but if you’d prefer better efficiency or space, you can now tell which one you should go for.
Power is where things get a bit more confusing. At first glance, the Accord Sedan appears to be superior as it delivers 27 extra horsepower. But when you add to that the fact that the Civic weighs 488 lbs. less that the Accord, then that advantages becomes a little hazier. Especially if you consider the fact that the Civic can be equipped with a more powerful engine, pushing it up to roughly the same horsepower as the Accord. Then again, the Accord also has a more powerful engine, pushing it up to well above the Civic’s top option.
The decision comes down to efficiency vs space in our opinion, but you can also look into all of the different features and options available in each sedan as well. Whichever you decide, be sure to schedule a test drive here on our website or give us a call at the dealership with any questions!
