Honda and Toyota Throw Down with New, Redesigned Midsize Hybrid Sedan Rivals: Compare the Accord Hybrid vs Camry Hybrid

Buying a hybrid is, at the same time, a lot easier and a lot harder than it used to be. Easier because you don't have to compromise on what you want to get what you need: a fuel-efficient, stylish, and fun-to-drive partial EV. Harder, because you have a lot of really great options to choose from in the El Cerrito area. California drivers are faced with a particularly difficult challenge: the Toyota Camry Hybrid, or the all-new 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid.

This rivalry has always been hot--but, since both of these midsize hybrid cars were fully redesigned for the 2018 model-year, it's more competitive than ever. Compare the two here to see why.

2018 Toyota Camry Hybrid vs 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid

  • Honda's midsize hybrid is the more affordable option, starting at just $25,100
  • Toyota's midsize hybrid is the more expensive option, starting at $27,800--that's almost a $3,000 price increase for a car with very similar standard features
  • The 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid offers Android Auto and Apple CarPlay--you won't find that on the Toyota hybrid, which only offers the brand's clunky smartphone hookup
  • Trunk space is comparable--and surprisingly spacious--for both sedans
  • The Honda Accord Hybrid offers a full suite of standard safety features under the Honda Sensing package

  • The Camry Hybrid offers a full suite of standard safety features under the Toyota Safety Sense package
  • You'll get 208 horsepower combined from the Camry Hybrid's 2.5-liter engine and electric motor combo
  • You'll get 212 horsepower combined from the 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid's 2.0-liter engine and electric motor combo
  • The cabin of the 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid sedan is decisively the more premium interior
  • Both of the new styles are refreshing and sharp--and while it comes down to personal preference, the aerodynamic, sloping design of the all-new Honda Accord Hybrid sedan is the winner in our book
