2021 Honda Accord vs. Its Competition

2021 Honda Accord Hybrid

Accord, Camry, Altima.

The three stooges, if only they were practical rather than comical.

The Toyota Camry feels more like a cut-rate Lexus than ever before, even if its semi-sporty mission seems lost on us.

A recently reworked Nissan Altima remains a charmer, though its powertrains leave a lot to be desired.

Don’t ignore the Subaru Legacy.

Its wallflower design masks standard all-wheel drive, good fuel economy, and loads of safety and tech features.

The Mazda 6 wants to be a budget BMW, and it mostly succeeds even if it’s a little too granular at times.

Oh, the Hyundai Sonata.

It has grown into a gorgeous sedan—make sure it’s on your list.
