2017 Hyundai Sonata vs 2017 Honda Accord

If you need help finding the right four-door, then maybe we can help. Often people consider the Honda Accord as one of the top performers in this segment, but lately Honda has been slipping and we can prove that to you with our 2017 Hyundai Sonata vs 2017 Honda Accord comparison. The Hyundai Sonata has a lot to offers, and in many cases, the Accord just cannot live up to this machine. Let us show you what we mean.

Looking at these two vehicles side-by-side there are clearly some design differences. The Honda Accord is all straight lines making for a stark appearance. The Hyundai on the other hand offers warm curves that speak to European luxury without the European luxury price. We talk about price and other comparison metrics in a moment, but if you would like to skip right to our Hyundai Sonata inventory here at Carolina Hyundai of High Point, then just click the link below.

How does the 2017 Hyundai Sonata compare to the competition?

When it comes to comfort, the Hyundai outshines the Accord with more overall interior room, which is important when you are considering a four-door sedan. Don’t go thinking that all that extra passenger room comes at the expense of trunk space either because the Hyundai Sonata has 16.3 cubic-feet of room in the trunk, and that goes above the 15.8 cubic-feet offered by the Honda Accord.

The transmission is important to consider too. Many auto manufacturers have been switching to continuously variable transmissions or CVTs, unfortunately these transmissions are prone to failure, and when they do fail, typically you have to replace the entire transmission. The Hyundai on the other hand sticks with the tried and true automatic architecture to give you the reliability that you need.

Speaking of reliability, the warranty is another thing to consider. Where Honda only cares for your engine and transmission for 5 years or 60,000 miles, Hyundai will back your powertrain for double the years and nearly double the miles. On top of all that, the Hyundai is cheaper. We quoted the base model price up there, but comparing the trim levels as you go up with each model, the Hyundai routinely comes out on top with the better price.
