2016 Toyota Camry Loses to the Competition in Albany, Troy, and Schenectady

Vehicles are prone to exaggeration, and the 2016 Toyota Camry is one of those vehicles that has been hyped up so much that people think it’s almost as good as gold. But it’s not. In fact, this model is nowhere near as great as what many drivers may claim it is, and it’s also nowhere near as great as the 2016 Honda Accord. If you’ve heard a lot about the Camry that interested you, do yourself a favor and see how the Accord is the better option in terms of price, fuel economy, power, safety, and features. You will not be disappointed with this vehicle, and you’ll know why it deserves more credit than the competition.


When it comes to overall cost and return on investment, there is only one vehicle that is the right choice to make. When comparing the 2016 Honda Accord Sedan to the 2016 Toyota Camry LE, the Honda is more affordable with a starting MSRP of $23,005 compared to $23,070. In addition, the Honda holds its own in terms of return on investment. After 36 months, the Honda has an ALG residual value of 56% compared to 45%, and after 60 months, it has a residual value of 42% compared to 35%. This makes it a better choice for your driving needs and bottom line, so be sure to snag one today.

Fuel Economy

Driving a vehicle with solid gas mileage allows you to go farther for less. The 2016 Honda Accord beats out the 2016 Toyota Camry in every level of this category. It has an EPA-estimated mpg rating of 27* city and 37* highway compared to 25 city and 35 highway. It also boasts a combined fuel economy of 31 mpg compared to 28 mpg. So no matter where the Albany, Troy, and Schenectady roads may take you, there’s only one vehicle you want on your side when it comes to better gas mileage.


Ensuring you choose a vehicle with power can help you to seamlessly maneuver the roads, and when you compare the Honda and Toyota, the Honda delivers just a little bit more to make your driving experience more thrilling. The Honda Accord generates 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque compared to 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of the Toyota. The Accord also comes standard with Hill Start Assist, which can make your adventure more enjoyable.


When you’re inside the vehicle, you want to feel safe. Both vehicles come standard with plenty of different safety features that are meant to prevent and protect. However, when it comes to actual safety, the Accord wins out. After all, it received a 5-start NHTSA Overall Frontal Crash Safety Rating, a 5-star NHTSA Side Pole Crash Safety Rating, and a 5-star NHTSA Rollover Safety Rating—the Toyota only received four stars in each of these categories. When you want peace of mind on the road, you know which one to choose.


Sometimes choosing a vehicle is all about the amenities that it comes with. The Honda Accord offers more standard features and benefits compared to the Camry, including dual-zone climate control, automatic climate control, illuminated vanity mirror, floor mats, and stereo anti-theft.


The Accord also offers more space, giving passengers more head, hip, and legroom, and also giving drivers more cargo space. If you’re interested in a vehicle that will give you more for less, the Accord is the better option. The Accord is 192.5 inches long compared to 190.9, and it also offers up to 15.8 cubic feet of cargo space compared to 15.4. No matter if you’re looking to comfortably fit more people in your mid-size sedan or if you want to carry more cargo, the 2016 Honda Accord is the right vehicle for you to take home today.
