The Honda Accord offers three different models: Sedan, Coupe and Hybrid. Each one has its own traits, but each is an excellent midsize option for a number of drivers. However, the Accord Sedan probably the widest reach, as 2-door coupes and hybrid vehicles are a little more niche than a traditional sedan. Another midsize sedan is the Hyundai Sonata, which has a wide reach of its own. We thought we’d see how the two heavy-hitting midsize sedans measure up to one another by comparing the 2017 Honda Accord Sedan vs 2017 Hyundai Sonata.
Advantages of the 2017 Honda Accord Sedan
If you look at the table above you can get a general idea of how the two vehicles compare to one another, but we thought we’d run down the table row by row to give you a better idea. The two vehicles are extremely similar to one another, and to be completely honest we’re not sure which vehicle wins out. The first row of the table depicts that the Honda Accord Sedan utilizes 0.2 litres less fuel every 100 kilometres driven, which will save a little bit of change at the gas pump each time you stop but not much.
The second row then shows that the two midsize sedans offer the exact same amount of horsepower, and though the third row shows the Accord Sedan pulling ahead with 3 extra pound-feet of torque that’s actually a pretty miniscule advantage when it comes to torque. So then the Sonata pulls ahead with an extra 0.5 cubic feet of space in its trunk. So the Sonata offers a slightly bigger trunk, and the Accord Sedan offers slightly superior combined fuel efficiency and torque.
In other words, the competition between the Accord Sedan and Hyundai Sonata is a very difficult one to judge by just specifications.
