2014 Honda Accord vs. 2014 Subaru BRZ Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Accord than the Subaru BRZ. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Honda Accord and the Subaru BRZ in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Honda Accord you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Subaru BRZ, 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 Honda Accord is somewhat more expensive than the Subaru BRZ. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda Accord and the Subaru BRZ have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Accord is much wider than the Subaru BRZ, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Honda Accord, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Subaru BRZ.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Honda Accord transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Subaru BRZ.

Handling
The Honda Accord has a larger turning radius than the Subaru BRZ, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
The Honda Accord offers greater seating capacity than the Subaru BRZ, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Honda Accord will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Subaru BRZ.

Warranty
The Honda Accord comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Subaru BRZ.
