Civic vs. Accord: Which Honda Car Makes the Most Financial Sense?

The Honda Civic and Accord both have long-standing reputations as fantastic cars. The Civic is a compact car that comes in coupe, sedan, and hatchback configurations. These options not only make the Civic versatile, but appealing to a broad audience, as well. The midsize Accord comes only as a sedan, and while it’s larger than the Civic, its interior dimensions are not significantly greater.

The 2019 Civic is part of a generation that began with the 2016 model year. For 2019, Honda upgraded the Civic’s exterior, introduced a Sport trim, and added a much-welcomed physical volume knob to accompany the touch screen. Additionally, the Civic now comes standard with the Honda Sensing suite of advanced driver assistance aids.

The 2019 Accord is our 2019 Best Midsize Car for Families award winner. The Accord was completely redesigned for 2018, and includes more powerful and fuel-efficient engine options. The new Accord also features a long list of newly standard and available safety technologies.
