2018 by the numbers: Honda Accord vs. Toyota Camry vs. Hyundai Sonata

Combing by way of spreadsheets is a good way to study, but it surely’s additionally a good way to go to sleep. Nonetheless, since I am getting paid to do that and you are not, I went by way of the numbers of the three new midsize sedans coming for the 2018 mannequin yr to offer you a greater concept of how they stack up.

This record will look at the at present out there specs for the 2018 Honda Accord, 2018 Toyota Camry and 2018 Hyundai Sonata. The automobiles had been solely just lately introduced, so not each automotive on this record may have, for instance, gas financial system figures. That mentioned, measurement and engine specs are already out there for all three, so there’s a lot to work with.

In an effort to put each automotive in even standing, I picked base or near-base trims. Each the Accord and Camry lack a moonroof, however although the Sonata has one, it nonetheless manages to win on headroom. With the sheer number of trims and choices out there, these numbers could not apply to all patrons, however it is a good, if tough approximation.

Large on the surface…

The Accord ought to really feel probably the most planted of the three, because of having the longest wheelbase, though the Camry is simply Zero.2 inch behind it. The Accord and Camry are additionally the longest general autos by a hair, each measuring simply 1 inch longer than the Sonata. The Sonata can be the tallest car, in addition to the widest.

Honda did not have floor clearance info out there, and each Honda and Toyota lacked a drag coefficient. The Sonata is Zero.four inch nearer to the bottom than the Camry, although.

…And massive on the within, too

Relating to bodily dimensions, larger is not essentially higher. That mentioned, if you happen to’re breaking out the ruler to measure bang in your buck, the Sonata and Accord provide the most important proportions of the three.

The Sonata tops the record for entrance and rear headroom, entrance legroom, rear shoulder room, rear hip room and passenger quantity. The Accord has the very best rear legroom, entrance shoulder room, rear shoulder room and trunk quantity. The Camry wins in rear headroom and entrance hip room.

The Sonata has the worst rear legroom. The Camry has the bottom passenger quantity, the smallest trunk and the smallest entrance headroom. The Accord has the worst entrance headroom, however is in any other case fairly aggressive.

Ace of base (engines)

Earlier than I focus on the engines, I am going to shove the gas-tank capability in right here. The Sonata has the most important gas tank by a rustic mile, at 18.5 gallons in comparison with the Camry (16.Zero gal) and Accord (14.eight gal).

All three base engines are gasoline I4s. The Camry wins on horsepower (203), however the Accord wins on torque (192). All three engines use common unleaded gasoline, and since Honda hasn’t but launched gas financial system estimates, the Camry is the tentative winner at 28 mpg metropolis and 39 mpg freeway.

The Accord options probably the most selection in how the shifts are dealt with, providing a repeatedly variable transmission or a six-speed handbook. The Camry’s commonplace slushbox is an eight-speed, which has two extra gears than the Sonata.

Larger-performance choices

In the event you’re after a bit extra pep in your step, all three automakers provide extra highly effective engines. The Sonata and Accord make do with four-bangers, whereas Toyota strikes as much as its tried-and-true three.5-liter V6.

The Camry is as soon as once more the horsepower king, at 301 hp towards the Accord’s 252 and the Sonata’s 245. The Accord stays on prime for torque, although, at a meaty 273. Once more, no gas financial system estimates from Honda, however the Camry wins by 1 mpg on the freeway (33), and the Sonata wins by 1 mpg within the metropolis (23).

As with the bottom engine, Honda presents two completely different transmissions — on this case, it is a six-speed handbook or a 10-speed computerized. Each the Camry and Sonata have commonplace eight-speed automatics.

Eco/hybrid powertrains

All three automobiles provide eco-friendlier powertrains, as effectively. Honda and Toyota have already introduced their hybrid variants, however the Sonata Hybrid has not but been unveiled, so all we now have to work with is the Sonata Eco, which depends on a thrifty gasoline engine.

We all know subsequent to nothing concerning the 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid. It will have a 2.Zero-liter, four-cylinder engine, and it will include a repeatedly variable transmission, and that is all we have got. Honda has not but introduced energy and torque output, nor has it talked about gas financial system.

The 2018 Camry Hybrid mates a 2.5-liter I4 as much as an electrical motor to provide 176 internet horsepower and 163 pound-feet of torque. With all that energy heading by way of a CVT, it ought to return 51 mpg metropolis and 53 mpg freeway, in any other case referred to as “a lot.”

Final on the record, we now have the Sonata Eco. This wields a novel 1.6-liter I4, good for 178 hp and 195 torques, and it comes mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. It is lighter on gasoline, but it surely’s nonetheless by some means worse than the bottom Camry engine, reaching simply 28 mpg metropolis and 37 mpg freeway.
