2015 Honda Accord vs 2015 Hyundai Sonata
The Honda Civic may be the most popular vehicle on the brand, but we think the Accord is just as recognizable as its smaller sibling. However the midsize sedan certainly has the potential to get overlooked in such a diverse segment of the industry. We thought we’d take a look at the incredible 2015 Honda Accord vs 2015 Hyundai Sonata, one of its biggest competitors, to see exactly where the two vehicles different and why, in our opinion, the Honda Accord makes a better choice.
Advantages of the 2015 Honda Accord
As you can tell by taking a look at the table above, the 2015 Honda Accord and Hyundai Sonata are extremely similar vehicles. The biggest advantage that the Accord has in terms of specifications comes in the way of city fuel efficiency, in which it utilizes 0.7 fewer litres per 100 kilometres than its competitor. But outside of that, the two vehicles are nearly identical. They both have 185 horsepower, a respectable amount for a light midsize sedan. And they are both light, as you can tell by glancing further down to the curb weight. The Sonata, however, does weight 2 lbs. less. But in the grand scheme of things, 2 lbs. is barely even a difference at all. And neither is the 3 extra foot-pounds of torque that that Accord has over on the Sonata.
So with the two vehicles being so much alike, the decision really comes down to available features and the overall aesthetic. Of course we think that the striking design and style of the Accord is one of the best in the class, but that decision rests in your hands. As for features, the Accord is packed with everything from safety, to convenience, to entertainment and more. Schedule a test drive to get behind the wheel of one yourself!
