Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford C-Max Hybrid than the Honda Accord. The Ford C-Max Hybrid will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Accord.

Convenience
With the Honda Accord you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Ford C-Max Hybrid, due to its tank size and 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Ford C-Max Hybrid will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 Ford C-Max Hybrid and the Honda Accord have similar Destination Charges.

Drivetrain
The Ford C-Max Hybrid has much less torque than the Honda Accord, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Ford C-Max Hybrid and the Honda Accord. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Ford C-Max Hybrid will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Honda Accord.
