Drivers with different necessities and lifestyles could find the Accord fits them better than the Civic or vice versa. Here’s a quick comparison of the two to help you make an informed decision about your next vehicle purchase at Babylon Honda!
The Honda Civic is the smaller of the two but, following a recent redesign, it boasts a sporty style that’s about as modern as it gets. The sweeping C-pillar looks similar to a four-door coupe while a new grille and taillights separate it from the competition.
The Honda Accord, a midsize sedan is designed to appeal to drivers who want a more conservative design. While it isn’t due for a redesign just yet, the three-box design offers an aesthetic that hits home for many drivers.
The Civic comes with two available powertrains dependent on trim level. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine delivers a healthy 158 horsepower while the upscale 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine produces 174 horsepower.
The Accord offers a wider selection of engine options. The 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine delivers 185 horsepower, topping the Civic right from the start. The 3.5-liter V6 engine pumps out 278 horsepower. Two hybrid options, a standard and plug-in hybrid, produce 195 horsepower.
