In every car company’s catalog there exists many vehicle classifications that have more than 1 model. For example, Toyota has both the Tacoma and the Tundra pickup trucks. Mazda has the CX-3, CX-5, and CX-9 SUVs. Honda, meanwhile, has 2 fairly comparable sedan models. These are the Honda Civic and the Honda Accord. Now out with their 2018 models, we thought we’d take a look to compare and contrast these 2 models. The 2018 Honda Civic vs the 2018 Honda Accord. What’s the difference?

A common question that comes up to drivers is ‘Which is better?’ Often, this isn’t an easy answer because different cars are built with different lifestyles in mind. Even in this case, when comparing 2 similar sedans, the final choice is up to you. Which 2018 Honda Sedan is better for you? With that said, keep in mind which features are most important for you as a driver as we continue. 

A quick look at the specs spells out the main differences between the 2018 Civic and the 2018 Accord. There’s nothing super drastic in changes. Both Honda sedans have comparable fuel economies and are nearly the same size.


However, the 2018 Honda Accord is slightly bigger, creating a more spacious cabin and a touch more cargo room. More dramatically, the one big and clear difference is the 2018 Accord’s big step up in power, which dwarfs the 2018 Civic despite the Accord’s lighter engine. The question is, however, is that upgrade in strength worth the higher price tag of the 2018 Accord?
