Throughout the years, two of the most highly rated sedans offered to drivers have been the Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry. That’s thanks to their overall performance, commitment to safety, and various tech features.
With the 2022 models available, which one is better for your commute around Cathedral City, Indio, and Coachella Valley? The Unicars Honda team takes a closer look at the 2022 Honda Accord vs. Toyota Camry to help you find out.
Both cars provide smooth handling and an overall efficient ride. However, the Honda Accord gets an EPA-estimated 30 city/38 highway MPG with its LX and EX-L trims.1
When driving around the city, this Honda sedan provides better gas mileage than the Camry, which only earns an EPA-estimated 28 city MPG. However, they both offer an available hybrid engine to improve upon fuel economy.
Part of what helps the Accord get such great gas mileage is its standard continuously variable transmission (CVT). This CVT can adjust on the fly to optimize performance. It also features Sport Mode for even more spirited driving when needed.
The 2022 Camry comes with an 8-speed automatic transmission that has fixed gear ratios, so it doesn’t provide as efficient or as seamless delivery of engine power.
The Toyota Camry is a comfortable car to drive, offering a variety of features to help you stay relaxed and reduce fatigue while behind the wheel. Ultimately, though, more room is found for all passengers inside the 2022 Honda Accord.
Here's a quick look at the differences in cabin space:
|PASSENGER VOLUME||105.6 cu. ft.||100.4 cu. ft.|
You’ll also have more room in the trunk of the Accord to fit luggage, sporting equipment, or any other supplies you need to pack up in your car. That’s because it has 16.7 cubic feet of trunk space, while the Toyota Camry’s trunk has 15.1 cubic feet of cargo volume.
Both sedans are loaded with driver-assistive features that help you safely drive around the city and along the highway.
Some of the next-generation technology built into both sedans include systems that can:
- Help avoid potential frontal collisions
- Keep your car centered within the lane
- Detect and display traffic sign information
- Maintain a safe following distance
The 2022 Honda Accord also comes standard with a multi-angle rearview camera. This lets you choose from three different viewing modes: top-down, wide, and normal. These views will not only help when you’re backing out of the driveway but also when pulling into a garage or parking your car.
Dynamic guidelines further help direct your Honda car exactly where you want it to go. The standard backup camera in the 2022 Camry just comes with the normal viewing mode and without standard dynamic guidelines.
