Finding the right sedan can be tough. There are numerous auto brands out there, and many brands have multiple sedan offerings, so how do you know if you’re choosing the right one?

Off the bat, though both vehicles fit into the sedan category, the 2017 Honda Accord is slightly larger than the 2017 Honda Civic. Because of this, the Accord features a larger engine beneath the hood. The Accord is powered by a 2.4L I4 engine that delivers 185 horsepower, while the Civic is powered by a 2.0L I4 engine that delivers 158 horsepower. Both models offer seating for up to five passengers, but it’s the Accord that has a bit more passenger space. The Accord has a total passenger volume of 103.2 cu-ft, compared to the Civic’s 97.8 cu-ft.

Two Fantastic Sedan Options for Long Island Honda Shoppers

Because the Accord is slightly larger, it comes with a higher price tag than the Civic; but in this case, a higher price tag also means more standard features. When it comes to infotainment, the Accord features a standard eight-inch i-MID high-resolution display—compared to the Civic’s standard five-inch color LCD screen. However, both models include standard Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink and Bluetooth® Streaming Audio, as well as a 160-watt, four-speaker sound system. It all comes down to what size touchscreen display you’re after.

The Accord is great for smaller families that aren’t interested in an SUV or minivan, while the Civic is a great option for the single shoppers who still wants room for weekend adventures with friends!
