Engine Power

When comparing the Honda Accord vs. Honda Civic, the Accord boasts the more powerful engine options. If you want an everyday commuter, you'll likely be pleased with either of the standard powertrains. The Honda Civic has a 158-hp 2.0L 4-cylinder, which is a little meeker than the 185-hp 2.4L I-4 on the Accord. However, both are well-balanced and reliable engines that will comfortably guide you to your destination. What if you're looking for more pep? Well, you could certainly opt for the 174-hp 1.5L turbocharged engine on the higher Civic trims. But, we think you'll probably be happier with the incredible 278-hp V6 on the higher Accord trims. Test drive a model in our new Honda Accord inventory and see what you think!

Fuel Economy

What if you're less concerned with horsepower and more concerned with fueling costs? Then you might prefer to peruse the new Honda Civic inventory. Of course, Honda vehicles have a great reputation for their efficiency. The Honda Accord LX generates up to 36 mpg on the highway with its CVT*, which is an impressive feat. But, the Honda Civic is even better. The Civic LX with CVT delivers up to 40 mpg on the highway, and higher trims push fuel economy to 42 mpg!** Think of how much you can save in annual fueling costs when you upgrade to a new Honda.

Dimensions

Finally, let's take a look at the differences in dimensions between the two. The Honda Civic is a compact vehicle, while the Honda Accord is a mid-size car. So as you may expect, the Accord is the roomier vehicle of the two. But, don't think that the Honda Civic is cramped! The two vehicles are fairly evenly matched in interior space, though the Accord has the obvious edge. Both seat five passengers, but the Civic has 97.8 cubic feet of passenger volume to the Accord's 103.2. As far as cargo space, the Civic has 15.1 cubic feet of space to the Accord's 15.8. Consider your own passenger and storage needs to help you make your decision!
