2017 Honda Accord Hybrid vs 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid
First, the Accord Hybrid disappeared from the lineup, then Honda discontinued the Civic Hybrid. As Honda was one of the leading brands for fuel efficient vehicles, with their hybrids having a lot to do with that, we were certainly surprised and curious as to what this meant. But just one year after the impressive refresh of the Accord Sedan and Coupe, we figured out what they were planning. A stunning new 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid with all of the same updates that the other models went through, plus more power and fuel efficiency than ever before. We thought we’d see how the model measures up against its biggest direct competitor, the 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid.
Advantages of the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid
One glance at the table above shows exactly why these two brands, and in particular these two vehicles, are such great competitors. Yet even though they’re so comparable to one another, the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid has a leg up in ever specification that we looked at. Starting from the top, the Camry Hybrid was one of the most powerful hybrid vehicles in its segment, but now the Accord Hybrid delivers an extra 12 horsepower making it the most powerful hybrid in the class.
As if that wasn’t bad enough for the Toyota, which is a brand that made hybrid technology what it is today, it also gives up fuel efficiency to the Accord Hybrid both on the highway and through city streets. In the city, the Accord Hybrid utilizes 0.8 litres less fuel for every 100 kilometres driven, and on the highway 1.2 l/100km. In the long run, that’s going to save you quite a bit of money at the pump.
As one last little leg up, the Accord Hybrid also offers a trunk with a bit more than half a cubic foot more space than its competitor.
