2016 Chevrolet Volt vs. 2016 Honda Accord Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Volt offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Honda Accord with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Volt and the Honda Accord in the front seats.

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
The Chevrolet Volt has much less torque than the Honda Accord, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Volt is significantly less powerful than the Honda Accord. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Volt and the Honda Accord.

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