Product Comparison of 2021 Toyota Camry vs 2021 Honda Accord
Over the years, the Toyota Camry and the Honda Accord have dominated the midsize sedan segment. When shopping for a new family vehicle, a lot of drivers in Lancaster County will ultimately choose between these two cars. So, let’s see how the 2021 Toyota Camry stacks up against the 2021 Honda Accord.
Is the Performance in the 2021 Toyota Camry better than the 2021 Honda Accord?
The 2021 Toyota Camry gives you two engines to choose from. Most people will choose the base four-cylinder engine, which develops a satisfying 203 horsepower. If you’re seeking an especially exhilarating performance, step up to the Camry’s V6 engine. It punches out an exciting 301 horsepower. Either engine gives this sedan a silky-smooth ride that makes trips to the store or the morning commute enjoyable, especially with the new tech upgrades this year like the new tablet-like 7.0 or 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment center.
If you’re looking for the ultimate performance-oriented Camry, we suggest trying out the TRD trim. This racy Camry is outfitted with wider lightweight alloy wheels, TRD-tuned shocks, lower ride height, more rigid chassis, TRD-specific exhaust system, and other enhancements for better handling and precision driving. Not to mention the slick aerodynamic kit, dynamic pedestal rear spoiler, and other unique TRD interior and exterior styling that make it the boldest and most aggressive Camry yet.
Honda also has choices when it comes to the engine lineup for the Accord. The base turbocharged four-cylinder engine develops 192 horsepower while its top-of-the-line engine maxes out at 252 horsepower. Despite the Accord’s competitive output, it’s at a clear disadvantage compared to the Accord in other aspects of performance. The Camry‘s extra horsepower helps make it more enjoyable to drive on an everyday basis, plus the addition of the Camry TRD puts them miles ahead in the road precision and performance arena.
