The 2018/2019 Accord and Camry have been updated and both are strong contenders in the mid-size sedan market. Which is better? We break down the numbers in a new series, we're calling The Shootout.

Note that both Accord and Camry were all-new for 2018 and both had only minor revisions for 2019.

      I test drove a 2018 Camry first and then test drove a 2018 accord. I enjoyed how the Camry drove but read somewhere about wind noise buffeting above 60 miles an hour with that car and interestingly when I test drove it above that speed I noticed that noise depending on how the wind was hitting the car so I found that disappointing. I was not impressed with the infotainment system particularly since SiriusXM is not offered and found out later android auto is absent as well. Then I went to drive a 2018 accord and was very impressed with the feel of the car as I was driving it and the infotainment system was spectacular including SiriusXM and android auto. The poor infotainment system in the Camry and the excitement I felt driving the Honda accord I ended up purchasing the Honda and glad I did. The lack of SiriusXM and android auto was pretty much a dealbreaker for me with the Camry.

      Bought the Accord Touring last week and it is incredible. Style tech room and power were hands down superior. Would have preferred a manual but the 10 speed auto simply works perfectly. If I don't like the gear I am in I do have the paddle shifters but have not once used them once and I am a retired race car driver so that says a lot. Car feels planted at all times with just a tiny bit of torque steer in economy mode but sport mode makes that irritant do away. This is my first car with more torque than HP and I am seriously impressed. Torque is all in by 1300 RPMs which makes it a beast in acceleration. It is my daily driver and I live in Northern Virginia. I budget 1.5 hours for my 21 mile commute each way and the car is incredibly comfortable. On the weekend, I find myself going for long drives because the car is just so much fun!

      One interesting difference between Toyota and Honda, is that Honda offers more gradation in trim lines (LX<EX<EX-L or Sport<Touring), but few if any "packages" to upgrade features within a line. Toyota offers fewer trims (L<LE or SE<XLE or XSE), but uses packages to upgrade within them. For instance, consider the 360 birds-eye camera that turned a potential tie into the only point for Camry. It comes only in a $4,500 package that, if accounted for in the price comparison, would have turned the the one tie into a point for Accord. So the score isn't 3-1-1, it is either 4-1-0 or 3-0-2. And the three points the Accord got outright were much more significant advantages, than what pulled the Camry close in the other two.

      My wife's 2007 Accord is close to 200k miles now with only regular maintenance. My dad's 2000 Camry is also close to 200k miles and is going strong as well. Just dont buy American cars..they will fail wayyy before the 100k mile mark, and start costing lots of money to fix. As we owned/own a few.

      I just purchased a 2019 Accord Sport 1.5t. I still have my 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid. I can live with the extra road noise and lower seating position. The Honda is my preference, even though the 1.5t is known for gas filling the oil pan due to blowback. This seems to be a problem in colder climates where the engine never maintains operational temps long enough to burn off the excess gas. I also know Honda performance guys prefer the 1.5 to the 2.0 as it can be modified more reliably. Time will tell if this Accord turns out to be as great as my 1986 and 2006 Accords.

      I’m the owner of a 12 year old Accord Euro (Acura in the states) it’s the best built car I’ve ever had. It’s such a shame that Honda and Toyota no longer sell these two models in the UK. Mazda is the only Japanese make to sell this style of car, here. We seem to be obsessed with premium manufacturers like Mercedes Benz, Audi and BMW, which in fact are not made as well. Leasing is huge here, which I think ‘hides’ reliability issues. If I had to buy a car to last me 10+ years, it’d have to be Japanese.

      Almost every reviewer chooses the Accord but say it's close. Don't say he's bias just because you have a different opinion. I would love a camry but a lack of AA is a deal breaker.

      People keep shitting on this idea that small turbo engines are inherently bad. There is no evidence to support this. It’s quite the contrary. It’s all about keeping maintenance.

      I bought the 2.0T, 10 speed Touring model in Nov. 18'. I used my Sams plus car buying service and paid $ 31.5K. Couldn't touch the Camry XSE for that number.
