Dare to Compare: 2017 Honda Accord in Kansas City, MO


The mid-size sedan segment has long been highly competitive, but three models stand above the rest. The 2017 Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, and Nissan Altima are the heavyweights of the segment and each has a lot to offer. Let's see how these top contenders compare when they're put next to the Honda Accord.

2017 Honda Accord vs Toyota Camry

  • The Honda Accord delivers premium comfort with a dual-zone climate control system. The Toyota Camry lacks a comparable feature until higher, more expensive trims.
  • The Accord's four-cylinder engine produces 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque, making it a little peppier than the Camry's 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque,
  • The Accord starts at just $22,455 MSRP,* more than $500 cheaper than the Camry.
  • Both sedans have a 109.3-inch wheelbase, but the Accord is more than an inch longer than the Camry, making it the roomier of the two.
  • The Accord offers a Rear Parking Aid, a feature the Camry lacks until higher, more expensive trim levels.

2017 Honda Accord vs Nissan Altima

  • The Honda Accord gains a slight edge early on with a starting MSRP of $22,455.* The Nissan Altima starts at $22,500 MSRP.*
  • The Altima is seriously lacking in standard technologies in its base model, like Cruise Control and a Rearview Camera. The Accord brings both technologies as standard equipment on all trims.
  • Convenience is king, which is why the Accord offers Remote Engine Start, a feature the Nissan Altima lacks entirely on lower trims.
  • The Accord four-cylinder engine delivers a healthy 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, the Altima falls short with a total output of just 179 hp and 177 lb-ft of torque.
  • Passengers will enjoy a little more room in the Accord which offers 103.2 cubic feet of passenger volume. The Altima offers just 101.9 cubic feet of passenger space.
