Honda boasts one of the most exciting sedan lineups on the market. A lot of drivers will ultimately choose between the midsize Honda Accord and the compact Honda Civic. Let's take a closer look at how these cars compare to each other.

With a 0-60 time of 5.7 seconds, the Accord 2.0T is among the quickest sedans in its segment. The lighter Civic also delivers top-notch performance.

  • • Accord: 105.6 cubic feet passenger of space
  • • Civic: 97.8 cubic feet of passenger space
  • • Backup camera
  • • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto (found on higher trim levels)

Like the Accord, the Civic can comfortably accommodate up to five passengers. However, the Accord's backseat does provide a bit more space for your passengers to stretch out. A backup camera now comes standard on every new Honda vehicle. Upgraded versions feature dynamic guidelines, which further help you to maneuver in tight spots. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto give you easy access to all of your favorite mobile apps. While the Accord can be equipped with an 8.0-inch touch screen, the Civic offers a 7.0-inch touch screen.


  • • Accord: Blind-Spot Monitoring
  • • Civic: LaneWatch Blind-Spot Camera
  • • Standard Honda Sensing

Both Honda models ensure everyone will be surrounded by an extra layer of protection. A Honda Sensing safety package comes standard on the 2018 Honda Accord and the 2018 Honda Civic. Driver-assist technologies, such as automatic emergency braking and lane-keep assist, give you an enhanced level of awareness on the road. Adaptive cruise control comes standard as well. Driving on a crowded highway can be an unnerving experience for some drivers. Fortunately, Honda offers safety technologies that ensure safer lane changes. While the Accord offers a blind-spot monitor, the Civic's LaneWatch system is designed with a passenger-side camera.

As you can see, the 2018 Honda Accord and the 2018 Honda Civic bring a lot of great qualities to the table. While the Accord's extra space will appeal to some drivers, others will be intrigued by the Civic's affordability.
