The mid-size sedan segment remains highly competitive, with two stalwarts routinely leading the pack. The Honda Accord has been a favorite among drivers, families and the automotive press for decades, and this admiration for Honda's mid-size car continues to this day. This Honda model is more advanced, refined, and value-packed than ever before, thanks to the 2021 Honda Accord debut.
The other sedan that remains a fierce competitor of the Accord and a popular option in the mid-size car class is the Toyota Camry. If you've already landed on your local Honda dealership website, then you may already be leaning toward the premium style and features of the Honda Accord. Still, you may be curious how it stacks up against Toyota's Camry.
Let's take a look at the many ways that the Accord outperforms its chief rival!

It's clear that the 2021 Honda Accord provides exceptional value for your money, thanks to its lower starting MSRP than the 2021 Toyota Camry. Not only that, but you'll find the new Accord comes loaded with features and characteristics that the Toyota sedan just can't match!
If you prefer the ride, handling, efficiency and style of a sedan but you still want a versatile vehicle, the 2021 Accord is here for you with its generous 16.7 cubic feet for cargo inside the trunk. Of course, the rear seats in this Honda also fold down and can split to accommodate longer items that extend from the trunk into the cabin.
Toyota's new Camry comes with just 15.1 cubic feet for cargo, and that's across all the trim levels. In other words, if you want to drive a Camry, it won't matter which version you get: you're stuck with a smaller trunk than the Accord.
When it comes to standard tech features, both the 2021 Honda Accord and 2021 Toyota Camry impress with features like smartphone integration via Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and a suite of advanced driver-assistive systems. Each model's standard safety package includes helpful technologies like adaptive cruise control and a pre-collision system.
Where the 2021 Toyota Camry falls flat, though, is when we compare other standard features with that of Honda's new Accord. For 2021, every Honda Accord comes with a large, 8-inch touchscreen display that also houses the automaker's famed Multi-Angle Rearview Camera. This advanced backup camera provides the driver with normal, wide and top-down viewing angles when in reverse gear.
In contrast to the Accord's impressive standard infotainment and camera setup, the 2021 Toyota Camry falls behind with its standard 7-inch screen and single-view backup camera.
