Which Honda Sedan is Right for You?
The family sedan category is crowded with qualified competitors, but two models rise above them all. The 2017 Honda Civic and the 2017 Honda Accord are both well equipped and fun to drive, and they’ll both save you money on fuel costs, month after month, year after year. However, they do offer some slight differences, and depending on your family’s needs, one might work better than the other. Find your dream sedan at Walla Walla Valley Honda today!
Civic Sedan Advantages
The main benefit of choosing a Honda Civic Sedan is the increased fuel economy. With a 1.5L four-cylinder turbocharged engine, front-wheel drive, and a continuously variable transmission, the Civic Sedan reaches 32 mpg city/42 mpg highway in EPA estimates.* The most efficient Accord delivers 27 mpg city/36 mpg highway in EPA estimates with a four-cylinder engine, CVT, and front-wheel drive.* As the smaller vehicle of the two, it makes sense that the Civic would offer better fuel economy, and budget minded College Place buyers should take that into consideration.
Benefits of the Accord Sedan
If you decide on the Accord Sedan, you’ll enjoy the following advantages:
Standard Power – The Accord offers more performance in the base trim. While the Civic manages a respectable 158 hp and 138 lb-ft of torque out of a 2.0L four-cylinder engine, the Accord reaches 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque with a 2.4L four-cylinder.
Available V6 – If that’s not enough power, consider upgraded to the exciting EX-L V6. This high-output engine delivers 278 hp and 252 lb-ft, plenty of raw speed to accelerate onto Interstate 82 near Kennewick.
Passenger Volume – As the larger vehicle, the Accord offers a maximum cargo capacity of 103.2 cubic feet, more than the 97.8 cubic feet in the Civic Sedan.
