Does the 2016 Toyota Camry Price Give Drivers as Much as the Honda Accord?

2016 AccordWhen shopping for a new midsize car, Central Illinois drivers know there are quite a few options available, and before settling for the 2016 Toyota Camry price, you should look around to see if you can’t find a similar—or better—selection of features for a lower price. We want to compare the new Camry to the 2016 Honda Accord Sedan to give you an idea of what we think a midsize sedan should give to their drivers.

Prices and Features

One of the first things many drivers think when shopping for a new car is that a more expensive vehicle often has a better selection of features. While this is certainly true within a model’s trim levels, you can’t really trust that to be the case when going from brand to brand. For example, let’s take a look at the 2016 Toyota Camry price:

  • The 2016 Toyota Camry LE has a base price of $23,070 without any upgrades.
  • The Honda 2016 Accord LX Sedan with standard manual transmission is priced at $22,105 (MSRP),* but even the model with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) is priced below the Camry at $22,905 (MSRP).*

While the savings of the Accord LX CVT over the Camry might seem small, would you believe that the Accord is also more fuel efficient for long-term savings?

  • The 2016 Honda Accord LX Sedan CVT earns an EPA-estimated 37 highway and and 27 city mpg for 31 mpg combined.**
  • The 2016 Toyota Camry only manages 35 highway and 25 city mpg for 28 mpg combined city/highway.

Honda gives drivers savings on top of savings, but that’s not all. You can find features like dual-zone automatic climate control, a multi-angle rearview camera, a stereo anti-theft system, and a set of alloy wheels as standards on the Accord. The Camry would require upgrades for even a set of floor mats, let alone alloy wheels or an advanced rearview camera like the Accord’s.
