Honda's 2018 Accord Does It All, Even Better

This was a close one, but the Honda Accord takes it by a hair.

Both are strong contenders with virtually identical levels of refinement, ride quality, comfort, interior ergonomics, cabin space, and even fuel economy. Interior fit and finish as well as build quality are tied too.

The Camry's silky smooth V6 and trick camera system impressed us greatly. And while beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, we certainly found the Toyota to be the more aesthetically pleasing of the pair.

For us, the Accord won in two major departments: driving dynamics and infotainment.

Though the Accord's 2.0-liter turbo four and the Camry's 3.5-liter V6 return similar performance stats, they go about their business in very different manners.

And the Accord is the more exciting of the two — certainly the case with our six-speed manual-equipped test car.

The 2.0-liter, 252-horsepower turbo four is a pint-sized powerhouse. It's as gutsy as they come, and it loves to be pushed. The higher the revs, the sweeter the tune it sings.

The Accord simply felt more comfortable and eager to please at high speeds. The Camry was certainly capable of delivering when the driving got spirited, but it never truly felt at home.

And then there's the Accord's new touchscreen infotainment system. For the first time, a Japanese automaker has stepped up to the plate with a system capable of going toe to toe with its rivals from Germany and the US.

This is a major letdown for the Camry and other Toyota products we have tested in recent years. In an age when infotainment is growing in prominence, a great, user-friendly system in a must-have these days, and Toyota's just isn't good enough.

Which brings us to our verdict.

"It's fun, yet sensible. It's a high-tech car, yet approachable. It's lighter and smaller, yet roomier," I said in my review of the Accord. "It's a great car. This is really Honda at its finest."

And for that, it's our winner.
