The More Affordable Car
The 2013 Accord is an over all win-win, with better fuel economy, durability, and higher safety ratings. Starting at $21,325, the 2013 Accord LX is over $700 less than the Camry L and almost $1,300 less than the slightly more comparable LE.
Both the Accord LX and Camry L are equipped with a standard 2.5-liter, four-cylinders, and boast 185 and 178-horsepower engines respectively. The more powerful and efficient Accord achieves a combined 30mpg to the Camry’s 28mpg*. With the average Birmingham commute being 25 miles round trip, Accord drivers will only have to fill up once a month and spend under $15/week on average to commute. Camry commuters won’t last quite as long and end up spending a little more. In addition, the new Accord features Eco Assist™ to alert drivers when they’re driving efficiently and help decrease fuel costs.
The 2013 Accord received the highest honor possible with the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s IIHS Top Safety Pick+. While the 2012 Camry does have knee airbags, the Accord employs smart safety technology. Rollover sensors and SmartVent™ technology help minimize airbag related injury to the Accord’s occupants. Other available features include LaneWatch™ with blind spot display, multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines, as well as forward collision and lane departure warnings.
After safety, a top concern is durability, especially among those with children and/or pets. Crayons, markers, and mud are not only going to show up on the Camry’s light grey or cream cloth seats, but they’ll stand out. The Accord’s more durable, Honda-quality fabric is tightly woven and comes in solid black.
The 2013 Honda Accord has all of the right things in all the right places. It offers the most for the lowest cost without sacrificing the important things: fuel economy, safety, and durability.
