Honda Civic vs Accord: Engine Power & Performance

The Honda Civic is equipped with a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine, and the Honda Accord features a 1.5L turbocharged engine. Available on the Honda Civic is a 6-speed manual transmission, though the standard offering is the continuously variable transmission. This transmission delivers efficient shifts.

If you're the owner of the Honda Accord, you'll find the available 6-speed manual transmission provides great control over shifts, though the standard CVT provides those same efficient shifts as on the Civic.

In terms of performance, the Honda Accord takes the lead with 192 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque, compared to the Honda Civic and its 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque output. However, the Honda Civic does have the advantage with its fuel economy in the base model setup.

Seeking out a bit more power? You'll find it in the Touring trim of the Honda Accord, which comes with a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that delivers 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. It's mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, so if you do a lot of highway drives, this is the engine you'll want to have.

Interior Space & Comfort

While both sedans have similarities in abilities, they differ when it comes to space and size. The Honda Civic features 97.8 cubic feet of passenger space, while the Honda Accord opens up with 105.6 cubic feet in its cabin. The difference in space is more apparent when it comes to actual room for the passengers.

Front passengers of the Honda Civic get 39.3 inches of headroom and 42.3 inches of legroom, while the Honda Accord offers slightly more headroom with 39.5 inches but also the same front legroom as the Honda Civic.

In the rear, the Honda Civic measures in at 37.1 inches of headroom and 37.4 inches of legroom, which is slightly smaller than the 37.3 inches of headroom and 40.4 inches of legroom featured in the Honda Accord.

In terms of trunk space, the Honda Civic features 15.1 cubic feet and the Honda Accord offers 16.7 cubic feet. When you want to carry your groceries, some hiking gear, or perhaps even some luggage for a weekend getaway, you'll want to turn to the Accord for a bit more space. However, for a vehicle of its size and stature, the Civic offers copious amounts of cargo space when compared to the other competition out on the road.

Differences in Style

While the Honda Civic and the Honda Accord both have stylish appearances, there are a few differences that can be pretty easy to spot. The Honda Accord features a more abrupt transition from cabin to rear, while the cabin of the Honda Civic has a more smooth and angled appearance. The Honda Accord features a honeycomb-like grille, while the Honda Civic features more traditional vents.

The Civic Driving Experience

When you settle into the Honda Civic, it's easy to sit back and relax. The interior offers seating for five, with an available 60/40 split fold-down rear seat that provides flexibility when you're on the go. The available leather gives the Civic a more luxurious feel. With leather-trimmed seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and leather shift knob, you'll have a luxury drive when you're behind the wheel of the Civic.

The Civic sedan also offers available heated seats for both the driver and front passenger. If you're driving the Touring trim of the Civic, that means you'll have heated seats in the back in the outboardseats, too.

The Accord Driving Experience

Inside the Accord, the quiet cabin offers plenty of quality materials along with the conveniences you're looking for out of a vehicle. For instance, you'll have an available wireless phone charger. You don't need those cords anymore-the hands-free charging area is easy to interact with.

Want to make connections even as the wheels are in motion? You'll be able to do it with optional Apple CarPlay™ integration. Access your favorite songs, respond to text messages, or use your favorite navigation app to reach your destination.
