Honda vehicles have developed a reputation for providing a wide range of features across all trims, so it’s no surprise to see many available with the Accord that are absent entirely from the Sonata. Highlights include:

  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera
  • Speed-Sensitive Volume Control (SVC)
  • Traffic Sign Recognition System (TSR)
  • Wi-Fi® Hotspot Capability
  • 12-Way Power Driver’s Seat with 4-Way Power Lumbar Support

  • Trunk Space: Up to 16.7 cubic feet in the Civic vs. 16 in the Sonata.
  • Rear Legroom: Up to 40.4 inches in the Civic vs. 34.8 in the Sonata.
  • Rear Shoulder Room: Up to 56.5 inches in the Civic vs. 56.1 in the Sonata.

A blend of spacious dimensions with sleek exterior bodywork is one of the main things that brings drivers to the sedan segment. Since the Accord delivers both more space for cargo alongside room in the rear for adults as well as kids, it tends to make better sense than the Sonata.
