2019 Honda Accord vs. Its Competition

2019 Honda Accord
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Honda Accord most often competes with the Toyota Camry for buyers’ interests and money.

We like the Accord’s interior and advanced powertrains, which seem to be a half-step ahead of the Camry’s for this generation.

The Nissan Altima was redesigned for 2019, but aside from an advanced, optional 2.0-liter turbo-4 and available all-wheel drive in the Nissan, Honda’s sedan easily outpaces its rival.

The Chevy Malibu is nearly as comfortable inside as the Accord, and the Chevy’s 1.5-liter turbo-4 is nearly as frugal.

The Sonata is similarly value-priced but lacks some personality.

The Subaru Legacy is the de facto pick for all-wheel-drive traction, but the mid-size sedan is starting to show its age.
