Reliability, performance and fuel-economy should all be trait that are ubiquitous among each vehicle in the midsize sedan class of the automobile industry. This is certainly true for two of the top models being compared by J. Pauley Toyota for its customers’ consideration, the 2015 Toyota Camry vs. 2015 Honda Accord. Toyota engineers have bestowed the new 2015 Camry with more than enough features and upgrades to keep it ahead of the 2015 Accord, its chief competitor.
Directly comparing the performance and design features of the 2015 Toyota Camry vs. 2015 Honda Accord features a much clearer picture of the showdown than simply comparing basic metrics. In fact, the two sedans are so closely matched from a mechanical standpoint, that a more detail analysis is required. Using the Camry XSE as the standard, it features a sport-tuned MacPherson strut in the front and dual linked rear suspension that is more responsive than the setup offered by 2015 Accord EX-L. Not only will this lead to having more feel through corners, the Camry has a tighter turning circle than the Accord.
Almost every automaker uses touchscreen technology to control the audio and infotainment systems. The Camry offers a larger touchscreen to work with than the Honda Accord. Some of the features that come with the Toyota Entune software suite are live updates for data services including traffic, weather and fuel-prices. Owners of the 2015 Camry will also be able to use some leading smartphone applications like Facebook Places, Pandora Internet Radio and Yelp.
Toyota is also working to include the next generation of safety systems in as many vehicles as possible. Part of this effort includes placing elements like knee airbags in the front of the vehicle for the driver and front passenger as well as outboard rear seat side-mounted airbags in the 2015 Toyota Camry. The 2015 Accord doesn’t have these safety features. Owners of the new Camry can also have Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross-traffic alerts for their vehicle.
