The 2017 Honda Accord and 2017 Honda Civic are two of the most popular vehicles on the road today, so it can naturally prove tricky to choose between them. With that in mind, we’ve gone ahead and created this quick and easy comparison to help you identify the right model to fit your needs.

Power and Efficiency

The 2017 Honda Accord delivers a 2.4L four-cylinder engine as standard to make up to 185 hp and 182 lb-ft of torque, while an available 3.5L V6 – which can take you from zero to 60 mph in just 6.1 seconds – is rated at up to 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque. It’s an ideal sedan for cruising the highway, and efficiency scores come in at up to a respectable 27 mpg in the city and 36 on the highway*.

The 2017 Honda Civic is a little less powerful, delivering 158 hp as standard and 174 hp with an available turbo. However, its lighter weight makes it feel slightly more agile – perfect for city-based drives – and you’ll make up to 32 mpg in the city and 42 mpg on the highway**.

Space and Comfort

As a mid-size sedan, the 2017 Honda Accord provides plenty of interior space, with up to 15.8 cubic feet in the trunk and plenty of breathing room for all passengers. It’s a particularly safe choice for those who regularly need to take adults as well as children in the rear thanks to 38.5 inches of rear legroom.

A compact sedan, the 2017 Honda Civic sacrifices a touch of interior space for its tight and sporty dimensions, though you’ll still find up to a Class-Leading 15.1 cubic feet of cargo space. A driver-centric design even provides slightly more front headroom than in the Accord (39.3 inches vs 39.1 inches).

Features and Technology

Both the 2017 Honda Accord and the 2017 Honda Civic can serve your needs with a full range of comfort fittings and features, including leather upholstery and heated seats in both the front and rear. Technology also strikes a first-class note, with Honda Sensing driver assistance features available with even entry-level trims, plus available Android Auto/Apple CarPlay, Honda satellite-linked navigation system, and premium audio systems.

There are a few areas where each model pulls ahead; for example, only the Honda Accord offers dual-zone climate control as standard while only the Honda Civic can fit a 10-speaker sound system. That said, you’ll find each model surprisingly well-equipped.
