The Toyota Camry and Honda Accord have long been competing for supremacy in the midsize sedan category. The competition continues with the 2019 Toyota Camry vs. 2019 Honda Accord. We're taking a closer look at these models in this vehicle comparison.

Before making a decision on your next Ithaca, Corning, or Binghamton car, you should be fully informed about all of your options. If you're looking for a midsize sedan, these two cars might fit the bill. Continue reading to learn more about engine power, interior amenities, and safety features you might be considering.

Camry vs. Accord Performance

When it comes to what's under the hood, the 2019 Camry carries a pair of engines, a 2.5L 4-cylinder and powerful 3.5L V6. Each one provides jus the right blend of performance and efficiency. The 8-speed automatic transmission each one is mated to keeps a low center of gravity to improve driving stability and smooth performance even at higher speeds on the freeway.

The Accord is powered by a turbocharged 1.5L 4-cylinder engine, along with a Continuously Variable Transmission. Those who enjoy a bit more power will enjoy the 2.0L turbocharged engine which produces 252 horsepower.

While the top engine offering from Honda is powerful, it doesn't quite match up to what the Camry is capable of offering with its V6, which puts out 301 horsepower. Choose from three different driving modes with the 2019 Toyota Camry. ECO mode maximizes efficiency, sport mode offers better acceleration, and normal mode is a blend of the two.

Interior Amenities

Whether you're driving the Camry or piloting the Accord, there's space for five inside each sedan. Each cabin is designed with the driver in mind, and that's evident from the moment you step inside. The 2019 Camry now offers Apple CarPlay™ as a standard feature. Link up a compatible iPhone to the touchscreen and read text messages, choose songs from your playlist and get directions to your destination.

The largest available touchscreen in the Camry is an 8-inch one with pinch-and-zoom capabilities. Thanks to the 7-inch color Multi-Information Display, stay up to date with turn-by-turn directions and safety information.

An 8-inch touchscreen is also available in the Accord, with available Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™. If you need space for all of your important items, neither car is lacking in cargo space. Pop the trunk of the Camry and have about 15 cubic feet of trunk space. The Accord checks in around 16 cubic feet.

Standout Safety Features

Right off the bat, it's easy to feel safe inside these vehicles thanks to the standard rearview camera found in each. Just glance at the touchscreen as you're backing up to track other cars or perhaps that soccer ball that was left in the driveway.

The standard Toyota Safety Sense™ P makes the roads safer. With the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, avoid or mitigate a possible collision with a pedestrian as you're driving the Toyota Camry. This standard package also features Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, which is designed to track any lane departure on clearly marked roads.

The 2019 Accord features Honda Sensing® standard, a suite of safety technologies keeping you aware. It includes the Collision Mitigation Braking System, which can brake the vehicle when there's a potential collision with another car detected in front of you. The Road Departure Mitigation System, meanwhile, tracks road markers and can apply brake pressure to prevent you from leaving the road.
