Honda Accord versus Toyota Camry

When shopping for a new car, one of the first things a buyer does is compare the vehicle they are considering to other vehicles of the same style and class. For the Accord, one of the biggest competitors is the Toyota Camry. The Camry may offer enough features to keep you content while you drive, but the Accord goes above and beyond to ensure you have a comfortable and safe commute.

The Accord offers an impressive number of features from safety to performance. All Accords now come standard with the Honda Sensing Suite – your extra eyes and ears for the road. A new suspension setup and improved body structure are to thank for impressive performance, giving drivers of Erie, PA, a solid feel at the wheel for smooth drive. And that’s only the beginning.
