Sporty and sleek sedans have become a staple around the Flemington, Montgomery, and Clinton, New Jersey, streets due to their powerful performance features and head-turning exterior builds. When you're on the search for your next partner on the road, there's a good chance you're considering either a Toyota Camry or a Honda Accord, but ultimately, which one is going to be the right choice for you?

Here at Fred Beans Toyota of Flemington, we're dedicated to helping our drivers every step of the way through their car buying journeys, and we know that starts right here with the research process. In order to make it as simple as possible, we created this handy breakdown on the 2021 Toyota Camry vs. Honda Accord. Now, let's see how these two stack up against each other!

Performance Features & Engine Specs

To get started, we'll head right under the hood and check out what powers these sedans.

With the Toyota Camry, you'll have three different engine options to choose from:

  • Standard 2.5-liter 4-Cylinder: 203 horsepower / 184 lb-ft of torque
  • Available Hybrid 2.5-liter 4-Cylinder: 176 horsepower / 163 lb-ft of torque
  • Available 3.5-liter V6: 301 horsepower / 267 lb-ft of torque

Over in the Honda Accord, you'll find two different available engines:

  • Standard In-Line 4-Cylinder with Turbocharger: 192 horsepower / 192 lb-ft of torque
  • Available Hybrid In-Line 4-Cylinder: 143 horsepower / 129 lb-ft of torque

While the Camry and the Accord have some similarities, like they both offer hybrid engines, when it comes to power and engine options, the Honda just can't compete.

The Toyota Camry engines are not only more powerful, but they also have more options to choose from.

Stability & Traction Control

While sedans aren't always known for powerful traction and stability control features, the Camry manages to break out of the mold with it's available all-wheel drive system. It provides you with peace of mind no matter what the forecast may be, and can automatically transfer power to the wheels that need it most. With the ability to send up to 50% of torque to the rear wheels, you'll have more control navigating those snowy and icy winter commutes.

Over in the Honda Accord, you'll only have a standard front-wheel drivetrain, just like other sedans on the market.

Entertainment Technology

The 2021 Camry comes equipped with the standard 7-inch touchscreen that includes features like Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® integration, Amazon Alexa compatibility, a USB media port, two USB charge ports, and hands-free phone capability and music streaming via Bluetooth®.

Once again, the Camry proves that it's dedicated to allowing drivers to customize their vehicle by also offering an available 9-inch touchscreen Audio Plus system, which includes the JBL® premium sound system.

Over in the Accord, you'll also get standard Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® integration, but it only offers one touchscreen size, the 8-Inch Display Audio with High-Resolution Electrostatic Touch-Screen.

The Verdict: 2021 Toyota Camry vs Honda Accord

While both sedans might be decent choices for your commutes around the Flemington, Montgomery, and Clinton, NJ, area, it's clear the Toyota Camry outperforms the Honda Accord in crucial categories like performance, stability control, and technology features.
