2019 Hyundai Sonata vs Honda Accord

With a dependable performance, luxurious comfort features, and a spacious interior, there's a lot to love about the 2019 Hyundai Sonata and Honda Accord. But which is better for your Bloomfield, Wayne, and Paramus commutes?

Find out in this head-to-head comparison of the 2019 Hyundai Sonata and Honda Accord by Lynnes Hyundai. 

Hyundai Sonata vs Honda Accord: Performance

The Hyundai Sonata and Honda Accord offer unique performance aspects, but regardless of which you choose, you're sure to get the power and efficiency you need. With multiple engine and transmission options, you can find a trim that caters to your performance preferences. They also come with available hybrid powertrains for a bit of a boost in fuel economy.

Overall, performance for each of these sedans is pretty similar, though there is one thing different: The 2019 Sonata lets you experience a sportier and more athletic ride. It's equipped with sport-tuned suspension and steering for a smoother performance as well as optimized handling and control.

The Honda Accord has a sport-tuned suspension, too. However, it lacks sport-tuned steering, so its handling performance may not be as responsive or sporty as you'd like it to be.

Interior Comforts and Cargo Convenience

The interiors of these sedans open up a world of comfort and convenience for anyone that gets behind the wheel. High-quality premium materials exude sophistication and luxury within each car while bold design elements in select trims deliver sport style.

The Sonata and the Accord have various interior features, too! Dual automatic temperature control comes standard for each vehicle. They also offer available heated front seats to keep you warm when the temperatures drop for the winter. The 2019 Sonata also comes with available ventilated front seats and a heated steering wheel for added comfort.

Cargo loading can be more streamlined in the Hyundai Sonata, too, with help from the hands-free smart trunk. Standard for SEL trims and above, all you have to do is stand behind the car with your Proximity Key for a few seconds, and the feature will automatically pop the trunk. The Honda Accord, unfortunately, doesn't have a hands-free smart trunk.

Hyundai Sonata vs Honda Accord: Interior Dimensions

In addition to a long list of advanced comfort and convenience technologies, the interiors of these sedans also include ample room to keep you and all your passengers comfortable. Both can seat up to five people and offer more than 16 cubic feet of trunk space.

In the passenger area, those inside the Sonata will be able to stretch out a bit more with 106.1 cubic feet of interior volume. The Accord only has 105.6 cubic feet available inside, so things might get a little cramped when the car is full.

When it comes to legroom, the sedans offer similar space for those in the back seats. In the front row, the Sonata has 45.5 inches of legroom, making it an ideal car for taller drivers and passengers. With the Accord, you'll only get 42.3 inches of front seat legroom.

Which Sedan is Best for You?

In this comparison, we caught an in-depth look at each sedan to determine which is the better option for your lifestyle. While the Honda Accord does have some impressive qualities, in the end, the 2019 Hyundai Sonata proved to be the ideal car for anyone that wants something sporty, spacious, and comfortable.
