2015 Honda Accord vs 2015 Volkswagen Passat
The Honda Accord may not be able to claim that it has been the best-selling car in Canada for the past 17 years like its sibling the Honda Civic, but it has been around the North American market since 1976 for a reasons. It’s an incredible yet simple vehicle with plenty of options that can accommodate any type of driver. There is another vehicle on the market that can make similar claims, and has been around just as long if not a bit longer. We wanted to take a closer look at how these two vehicles measure up to one another so we compared the 2015 Honda Accord vs 2015 Volkswagen Passat to get a better understanding of their similarities and differences.
Advantages of the 2015 Honda Accord
As was expected, the vehicles are both very similar to one another in their impressiveness. Cargo capacity in the trunk is nearly identical, with the Volkswagen Passat only having a barely-noticeable 0.1-cubic-foot advantage. Passenger volume in the cabin is close as well, but this time the Honda Accord takes the edge with an extra cubic foot of space for your passengers to stretch out and get comfortable in for longer trips.
Where the Accord really starts to pull ahead of the Passat is in terms of horsepower and fuel efficiency. Generally with an advantage in power ratings comes a hit to fuel efficiency, but the Honda sedan has a small 15-horsepower lead on the Volkswagen and still utilizes a little over a litre less fuel per 100 kilometres. That’s an impressive feat, and one that we think puts our sedan firmly in the lead.
