2015 Chevrolet Volt vs. 2015 Honda Accord Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Chevrolet Volt than in the Honda Accord, due to the Chevrolet Volt's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Volt and the Honda Accord in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Volt you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Honda Accord, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Chevrolet Volt is somewhat more expensive than the Honda Accord. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Volt and the Honda Accord have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Volt is much slimmer than the Honda Accord, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Chevrolet Volt, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Honda Accord.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Volt does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Honda Accord.

Handling
The Chevrolet Volt has a smaller turning radius than the Honda Accord, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Chevrolet Volt has less horsepower than the Honda Accord, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The Chevrolet Volt has less seating than the Honda Accord, making the Honda Accord the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Volt comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Accord.
