For 2016, the Honda Civic is all-new and features an increase in size, as well as a plethora of new amenities. While the Civic and the more popular midsize Accord belong to different segments, the improvements to the Civic may make it difficult for buyers to choose between the two. So, what’s the different between the Honda Accord and the Civic, and which should you buy?
The Accord adheres to a more traditional, although sleek, design, while the Honda Civic has been entirely redesigned for a more contemporary look. If style is your concern, check out the Civic.
If it’s space you’re after, the two vehicles are comparable, but the Accord – as the larger of the two – still has the advantage. The Accord also offers more in the way of high-tech features, while the Civic takes a more basic, minimalist approach.
If you’re into hybrids, the Accord offers a hybrid model that gets up to 50 mpg in the city. However, if you’d rather stick to the traditional gas engine, or if you don’t want to shell out the extra cash for a higher trim level, the Honda Civic gets a fuel rating of 42 mpg on the highway.
