Does the 2016 Toyota Camry MSRP Compare to the Accord?

August 28th, 2015 by

2016 Honda AccordNew cars for the 2016 model year have started arriving on the streets of Mid-Michigan, and we know that many of our drivers are searching for a new car right now. So, does the 2016 Toyota Camry LE MSRP of $23,070 make it the most affordable and practical option for you, or is there a competing model that might offer you more?

The 2016 Honda Accord LX with 6MT actually has a lower base price – $22,105 (MSRP)* – and bests its Toyota competitor on fuel efficiency and features. We know it sounds too good to be true, so we went ahead and brought the specs and features together for you, though the best way to see the Accord is in person, in our new vehicle lineup.

Fuel Economy

Honda has built up a reputation for fuel economy that goes back decades, and the Accord continues that dedication to saving you money at the pump. See how these two modern sedans compare on fuel efficiency:

  • The 2016 Toyota Camry LE sports a four-cylinder engine under the hood with 35 highway and 25 city mpg, which certainly aren’t bad specs to have.
  • The 2016 Honda Accord LX with continuously variable transmission does a bit better, however, earning an EPA-estimated 37 highway and 27 city mpg.**

Standard and Available Features

In recent years, Honda has helped to redefine the idea of what features should come as standard on an entry-level car like the Accord LX. While the Camry LE shares many comparable amenities, there are two areas where it falls short of the Accord:

  • Comfort: Each Camry LE has manual air conditioning and heating while the Accord LX has standard automatic dual-zone climate control to keep everyone comfortable.
  • Safety: Rearview cameras are standard on most sedans now, including the Camry LE, but Honda has gone a step beyond its competitors by including a multi-angle rearview camera with three different views for peace of mind while parking or backing up.
