Trims and Features
The Accord has a larger overall list of available features and more variety when it comes to trim options.
- Accord LX vs. Camry LE: The introductory Accord sedan comes with a large variety of features like dual-zone automatic climate control, an eight-inch infotainment display, a rearview camera and Pandora compatibility. The introductory Camry feels like just that, a basic model. It has a smaller screen, a less-capable stereo, and predictable power accessories.
- Accord Sport vs. Camry SE: The Accord Sport has an enhanced engine, a rear spoiler, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with paddle shifters, and a CVT transmission. This really is a sportier version of the normal Accord sedan. The Camry SE is more like a minor upgrade. It adds a few cosmetic enhancements, but does little to boost the performance or ride quality of the vehicle.
- Accord EX-L vs. Camry XSE: The affordable Accord EX-L trim features leather upholstery, advanced safety systems, a premium stereo with satellite radio, and the option to add a voice-controlled navigation system. The comparable Camry trim relies on simulated sued upholstery, a power passenger seat, and a bunch of features the Accord has already offered.
- Accord Touring vs. Camry XLE: There is no comparison between the top-of-the-line trims for both of these models. The Accord adds the strongest engine, makes the navigation system standard, and upgrades to LED headlights and adaptive cruise control. The Camry only adds leather upholstery, takes away a few features from the XSE trim, and makes everything else a cost-added optional feature.
No matter how you like to drive, the 2015 Honda Accord delivers more performance.
- 2015 Honda Accord: Two powertrain options are available, a 2.4L four-cylinder that puts out 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque, or a 3.5L V6 with an output of 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque. Six-speed manual and continuously variable transmissions are both available.
- 2015 Toyota Camry: Two powertrain options are available, a 2.5L four-cylinder that puts out 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque, or a 3.5L V6 that releases 268 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission is the only option and both engines are underpowered compared to the Accord.

Both the Accord and the Camry are safe cars, but there are important differences between the two that drivers need to be aware of.

The Accord was also awarded a five-star overall rating, while the Camry has not yet been awarded an overall rating and hasn’t completed all testing.
- Both of the models come with advanced crash mitigation technologies, but on the Accord most of them come standard as you work up the trim levels, while on the Camry most are just options, meaning that you have to pay more to achieve the same level of safety.
- 15.8 cubic feet of trunk space in the Accord compared to 15.4 cubic feet in the Camry.
- About the Accord, Edmunds says “The sedan’s backseat is one of the best in this class, thanks to its combination of space and comfort.”
