2015 Honda Accord vs. 2015 Toyota Prius Plug-in Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
The Honda Accord will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Toyota Prius Plug-in, making it more convenient to drive.

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).

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Honda Accord does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota Prius Plug-in.

Handling
