2016 Honda Civic vs. 2017 Honda Accord Review

Comparison Review

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

Convenience
The Honda Accord requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Honda Civic, 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). Based on MSRP, the Honda Civic is clearly a better financial choice over 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 Honda Civic and the Honda Accord have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Civic 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 Honda Civic, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Honda Accord.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Honda Civic doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Honda Accord.

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

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Civic and the Honda Accord. The Honda Civic has less cargo capacity than the Honda Accord, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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