Honda Accord vs Hyundai Sonata

2019 Honda Accord

Many drivers around Huntington Beach, Westminster, and Orange County are interested in both the Honda Accord and the Hyundai Sonata. That’s why our Norm Reeves Honda Superstore Huntington team took the time to create this informative vehicle comparison. Check it out, and contact us with questions!

Fuel Efficiency

The new Accord fares well in the fuel economy department. It achieves an EPA-estimated 30 city/38 highway/33 combined MPG with its LX, EX & EX-L trims—great if you have long commutes to work or enjoy frequent day trips.1 Unfortunately, the Sonata doesn’t fare so well in this department. With numbers like 26 miles per gallon in the city and 35 miles per gallon on the highway, it’s not as efficient…

High-Tech Safety

With Honda Sensing® (the Accord’s suite of intelligent, driver-assistive features), you’ll have as much help while you’re out there on the road as modern technology is able to provide. Take a look at these systems:

  • Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR)
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM)
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)

Fortunately, Hyundai brings its own suite of safety technology to the table. Many of their features and systems are comparable to those that we mentioned above, including Lane Keeping Assist, Automatic Emergency Braking, and others. Drop us a line if you have questions about any of their major differences.

Connected Audio

Honda’s Accord also utilizes technology throughout its cabin, particularly when it comes to audio entertainment. You can control your music through an incredible-looking available 8-inch Display Audio touchscreen, and you can hear it via an available Premium Audio System with 10 crystal-clear speakers.

In terms of integrating your phone into your driving experience, there’s Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, and even an available Wireless Phone Charger. How does Hyundai’s Sonata stack up in this regard?

For its base trim level, its color touchscreen display audio only measures in at seven inches, while its AM/FM/MP3 audio system only gives you six speakers. There are, however, opportunities to upgrade these. Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility are both standard, but wireless device charging isn’t available (at least not on the base model). A test drive can take your understanding to a deeper level…

Test Drive Today!

At the end of the day, the Honda Accord looks like the best option, with a sleek, muscular body, a sporty front fascia, and the type of refinement that lets you drive it anywhere. While some would say that the Sonata’s also stylish, we’re not as impressed by its palette of exterior color options.

There are so many ways to get in touch with our Norm Reeves Honda Superstore Huntington team: Call us on the phone, chat with us on our website, text us from your cell, or stop by our dealership in person.
