2021 Hyundai Sonata vs 2021 Honda Accord

Serving Troy, MI

If you are in the market for a new midsize sedan, your focus may be centered around two top models that have been leading contenders for local car shoppers for decades. The 2021 Hyundai Sonata has inspired styling along with exceptional capabilities. The Honda Accord is priced slightly above the Sonata for the 2021 model year, and it reflects the results of an extensive redesign. Are you ready to get more familiar with these sedans and their many attributes?

Exterior

The 2021 Sonata makes a lasting impression thanks to its exciting front-end design and its rolling side accents. The stunning LED headlights are underscored by a dramatic light ribbon that bends upward to follow the hood's curvature. This standout feature is combined with an athletic-minded grille and pointed accents on the lower sides. While the 2021 Honda Accord has been redesigned, it carries many expected design features on the exterior. These include a tall grille with a horizontal theme that integrates with triangular headlights, a clamshell roof, and front-to-rear personality lines that give the sides some character.

Interior

The dashboard design and center stack in the Sonata and the Accord are relatively similar, but the Sonata’s dashboard has a clean, modern look with long lines and unique air vents. The Sonata’s central display screen stands upright while the Accord’s screen is at an angle. Inside the Sonata, you can find gear like a surround-view monitor, a navigation system, Blue Link, remote parking assistance, wireless charging, and more. The 2021 Honda Accord has some of these same features only at the highest trim levels.

Performance

The Sonata is offered with several powertrains, and the most powerful engine is a new addition for 2021. The all-new N Line trim level comes with a 2.5-liter turbo, GDI four-cylinder engine that will impress you with its production of 290 horsepower. An eight-speed wet dual-clutch transmission accompanies it. On the other hand, the most impressive engine available in the 2021 Accord is a 192-horsepower, turbo I-4 machine.
