Compare the New Hyundai Sonata to the New Honda Accord

  • The Hyundai Sonata is More Affordable than the Honda Accord: The new Hyundai Sonata offers a much more affordable base model at $22,500. The Honda Accord, while offering similar features, isn't cheaper and checks in at $23,720. That means your favorite features like a panoramic sunroof, heated steering wheel and heated and ventilated front seats are all more affordable than the options you'll find on the Honda Accord.
  • The New Hyundai Sonata Offers More Technology on Its Base Model: Both models come standard with a seven-inch screen but only the Hyundai Sonata offers a standard touchscreen. For features like Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, the Hyundai model will include them on every model. The Honda Accord offers these features but only if you upgrade to higher trim configurations.
  • The Hyundai Sonata is a Roomier Ride than the Honda Accord: When you're looking for the sedan that can provide a more comfortable ride, the Sonata offers more passenger room than the Honda model. The front row of the Hyundai Sonata will also guarantee more headroom and legroom than the Honda Accord has to offer.
  • The New Hyundai Sonata Offers More Safety Features for Its Base Model than the Honda Accord: For drivers who want to protect their passengers a little more, you'll choose well when you pick out the Hyundai Sonata. It offers Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist on all models in the lineup- this is a feature that isn't standard with the Honda Accord.
  • The Hyundai Sonata Offers Better Warranties than the Honda Accord: When it comes to keeping your vehicle more protected, Hyundai has plenty of ways to do just that. It offers a better powertrain warranty (Ten-Year/10,000 mile) over the Honda Accord's powertrain warranty (Five-Year/60,000 mile). Hyundai also offers a five-year/60,000 mile new vehicle limited warranty while the Honda Accord only offers three-year/36,000 miles.
