Camry Hybrid Fuel Economy Takes a Backseat to Accord Hybrid

May 31st, 2017 by

2017 Honda Accord HybridDrivers have begun flocking toward hybrid cars in recent years. It makes sense, as hybrid vehicles can provide all the luxuries of regular vehicles with the added bonus of better efficiency and an eco-friendly factor. Still, it can be a little difficult to navigate the hybrid vehicle landscape to find one that ticks all of the boxes. Watch as we compare the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid to the 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid to find out which of these vehicles is the better deal.

Fuel Economy

Each of these vehicles offers drivers a commendable EPA-estimated fuel economy when compared to regular gasoline vehicles. However, when crunching the numbers, the 2017 Honda Accord Hybrid easily takes a huge victory over the 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid fuel economy. While the Toyota Camry Hybrid can provide up to 42 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway, it still lags behind the Accord Hybrid, which offers an EPA-estimated 49 mpg in the city and 47 mpg on the highway.*

Space

Another important area when the 2017 Toyota Camry Hybrid finds itself falling behind is in the amount of available space it can provide. The Camry Hybrid only provides a maximum cargo volume of 13.1 cubic feet, 41.6 inches of front legroom, and 58 inches of shoulder room. On the other hand, the Accord Hybrid is able to provide a bit more breathing room with 13.7 cubic feet of maximum cargo space, 42.2 inches of front legroom, and 58.9 inches of front shoulder room. While they may not seem like large discrepancies, the extra inch or two definitely plays a part in increasing passengers’ overall comfort levels.
