Civic vs. Accord: Which Honda Car Is the Better Buy?

There are plenty of great new cars on the market. Among them are two Japanese vehicles with long, well-deserved reputations of quality. These would be the Honda Civic and the Honda Accord

The Honda Civic is a compact car available in three body types: Sedan, coupe, and hatchback. That versatility helps boost the Civic’s appeal to a broad audience, from family haulers to speed demons. Conversely, the Honda Accord is a midsize car. It comes in a single body style, a sedan, and it’s a little roomier than its sibling. Still, the Accord features plenty of trim levels to satisfy a wide array of people.

The 2020 Civic belongs to a generation that launched for the 2016 model year, while the Accord was redesigned for 2018. Outside of the Civic hatchback receiving some revamped exterior styling, neither vehicle saw any major updates for the 2020 model year. Both cars were finalists for our 2020 Best Cars for the Money awards.

In this slideshow, we’ll be conducting a side-by-side comparison of the Civic and Accord, which will help you decide which vehicle is best suited to your needs.
