The 2018 Toyota Camry’s fuel economy ratings have certainly garnered a lot of attention, but that doesn’t mean it’s the best family sedan on the market today. Although the 2018 Toyota Camry looks good on the surface, drivers in Mid-Michigan can get more out of their next sedan when they choose the 2018 Honda Accord over its competitor from Toyota. The Honda Accord’s fuel economy is better than the Camry’s in the city and in combined settings, and the more responsive Honda offers superior all-around performance.

By the Numbers: Camry vs. Accord

City Fuel Economy Highway Fuel Economy Combined Fuel Economy
2018 Toyota Camry LE 28 mpg 39 mpg 32 mpg
2018 Honda Accord LX CVT 30 mpg* 38 mpg* 33 mpg*

Although the Toyota Camry’s baseline trim has a slight advantage on the open road, the Honda Accord LX CVT will perform better in most real-world driving scenarios. The Accord achieves higher fuel efficiency in the city thanks to its 1.5-Liter turbocharged engine, but this isn’t the only factor that gives the Accord an edge over the Camry.

Both the Camry and the Accord are able to generate similar amounts of horsepower and torque, but where the Camry produces its maximum torque at around 5000 RPM, the Accord starts putting up its highest numbers at just 1600 RPM! This means that when you’re behind the wheel of the Accord you’ll enjoy faster acceleration for quick lane changes when the light turns green and in merging situations.
