Sedan Safety Showdown: Toyota Camry vs. Honda Accord

Our team at 1000 Islands Toyota knows how difficult it can be to find the right sedan for you or your family's needs. With so many different brands and models, there can be a lot to compare and it can often be overwhelming knowing where to start.

So, to help, we’ve narrowed it down to the Toyota Camry and the Honda Accord. These two models are often compared and are two of the most popular choices for sedans. In this post, we'll be breaking down and comparing some important safety and technology features and factors so you can make the most informed purchase possible.

Safety Technology

When it comes to safety, the Toyota Camry offers a lot of amazing features that make it stand out. It was completely redesigned in 2018, and some of those redesigns included lots of new technology and safety options (amongst other things).

  • The Camry’s Safety Features

The Camry comes loaded with Toyota’s famous Safety Sense P Technology that includes a pre-collision system (with Pedestrian Detection), automatic high beams, radar-based cruise control a STAR safety system, steering assist, and even a lane departure alert system.

It is important to remember that all of the above features come standard in all Camry’s.

  • The Accord Safety Feature

Honda provides pedestrian features like an absorbing front fender and hood, along with wiper pivots. Unlike the Camry, you do not get a pre-collision system, but the Accord offers reactive features in case of a collision – which won’t help with actually avoiding one.

You will get ABS and traction control with the Accord, but many of the Camry safety features we mentioned are either not available or don't come standard with all Accords.


For entertainment features, the Camry comes with Toyota’s EnTune infotainment system. With the standard EnTune system you can enjoy a 6.1-inch touchscreen display, voice recognition, and much more. Both the Camry and the Accord have both Bluetooth and Apple Auto connectivity options.
