2017 Honda Accord vs. Hyundai Sonata
The Honda Accord and Hyundai Sonata are back for 2017, and they’ve already elicited some buzz around Miami, Hialeah, and Doral. And with both sedans offering great performance, dependability, and technologies, it’s easy to see why.
But which sedan is better: the 2017 Honda Accord or the Hyundai Sonata? Read Braman Honda Miami’s comparison below to find out.
Power and Performance
The 2017 Honda Accord delivers exceptional power and performance thanks to its impressive powertrain options. It comes standard with a 2.4L I-4 engine that can generate 185 horsepower. Drivers in search of something with a stronger performance can opt for the available 3.5L V6 engine that delivers up to 278 horsepower.
On top of that, the Accord is equipped with a number of performance features. With these, you’ll experience increased power and great fuel economy.
The 2017 Hyundai Sonata also offers three engine options. Its standard engine offers identical power as the Accord, but the other two available options won’t deliver the same impressive performance. Its available 1.6L I-4 engine only gets 177 horsepower, and its 2.0L I-4 engine only generates 245 horsepower.
Honda Accord vs. Hyundai Sonata: Tech Features
Both the Honda Accord and Hyundai Sonata come with advanced technology features that work to enhance your overall driving experience. Each sedan is equipped with an infotainment system complete with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ to help you stay connected and stay entertained as you drive.
They also have an available navigation system that can help you get to where you need to go in Miami, Hialeah, and Doral. However, the system in the 2017 Accord also provides real-time traffic updates and alternate routes. The navigation in the Hyundai Sonata doesn’t, so you may find yourself stuck in typical Miami commuter and tourist traffic more often than you’d like.
The 2017 Honda Accord and the Hyundai Sonata come with similar safety features for your peace of mind. Some of these include Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning and Braking, and a Lane Keeping Assist System. These technologies work to help you stay safe and avoid potential accidents.
On top of that, the 2017 Honda Accord comes with Honda LaneWatch™. This advanced safety system works with a camera on the passenger-side mirror. When you switch your right turn signal on to change lanes, Honda LaneWatch™ will automatically activate the camera and display a live look into your right blind spot.
While the Hyundai Sonata has many of the same impressive safety technologies, it doesn’t come with features like Honda LaneWatch™ for your added security and overall peace of mind.
Which is Better: Honda Accord or Hyundai Sonata?
It’s a simple fact that the 2017 Honda Accord and the Hyundai Sonata are two amazing sedans. However, if you’re seeking a vehicle with impeccable power and more than enough amenities to ensure your comfort and safety, it’s clear the 2017 Honda Accord is the better choice.
