The 2014 Toyota Camry MPG Rating Falls Short of the Accord

January 20th, 2014 by

2014 Honda Accord Sedan (1)When drivers visit a Tri-State Honda Dealer, we know that there are a few different things on their mind; these days, the fuel economy of a vehicle is a high priority. The 2014 Toyota Camry’s mpg rating isn’t bad, but we think that when it’s compared to the 2014 Honda Accord, well, the numbers will speak for themselves.

More than MPG

So, you’re probably here looking for those oh-so-important numbers, and we aren’t going to put them off any longer. The 2014 Toyota Camry gets 35 mpg on the highway and 25 mpg in the city, but the 2014 Accord LX with continuously variable transmission gets an EPA-estimated 36 mpg on the highway and 27 mpg in the city.*

Those numbers surely look pretty similar to you, but the Accord’s is representative of superior engineering, as not only is it more efficient but it is also more powerful. The Accord’s 4-cylinder engine is rated at 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque, compared to the Toyota powertrain’s 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque.

And then there are the standard features. Honda has redefined “standard features” by including amenities like these on the entry-level Accord LX:

  • Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity
  • Rearview camera system
  • Touchscreen infotainment system
  • Pandora internet radio

Now, can you get some of these amenities on the Camry? Of course. Honda’s i-MID infotainment system will only be found on Honda vehicles, but by and large you can find some comparable features on the Camry. Except Toyota expects you to upgrade for them, while Honda includes them at the base level.
