Miami Chooses Between the 2010 Honda Accord v. 2011 Hyundai Sonata

The competition between new vehicles in the market has made it extremely difficult for new car buyers to make a decision. Automobile makers are trying harder then ever to produce the top vehicle in the market. Two vehicles that are currently going head-to-head in the midsize sedan market are the Honda Accord and the Hyundai Sonata. Although both vehicles have made their claims on which of the two is the better choice, we have gathered some facts for you that will hopefully make your decision an easier one:

Trim Level Match Up: The Accord proves to be the more expensive vehicle with an average MSRP of $1000 more per trim level. One advantage the Accord does have over the Sonata, is that it offers an EX-L V6 model. The Sonata on the other hand does not have a V-6 engine to compete with the Accord.

The object of his affections.

Performance: For those of you looking for a performance vehicle, the Accord proves to be the better choice. The Accord V-6 out powers the strongest Sonata engine by 71 horsepower and 68 lb-ft of torque, for much better acceleration response.

Comfort & Convenience: The Accord EX has slightly less interior volume then the Sonata due to its standard sunroof. However the EX has more hip room, shoulder room and significantly more rear legroom. Plus, the Accord LX has more interior volume than any Sonata, and adds more front headroom (+1.4‖) and rear headroom (+0.7‖) for greater all-around comfort!

Safety: The Accord is designed with an Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure, which enhances crash-energy management and crash compatibility. The Sonata has nothing like the Accord’s Occupant Position Detection System (OPDS) to turn off the side airbag if a child or small-statured passenger is leaning into the airbag’s deployment path. Nor does Sonata have engine immobilizer technology to help prevent theft, another feature found on every Accord model!

Pricing: Although the Sonata is priced at a much lower cost, the Accord has a higher residual value. Not to mention the Sonatas maintenance and repair costs are much higher then the Accords.

Still not satisfied with the facts? Go to your local Miami dealer and test drive the two vehicles. Shopping for a new car in Miami is definitely not the easiest thing to do, however getting the facts on each vehicle can make your decision a lot easier.
