Compare Performance

The Sonata comes standard with a four-cylinder, 2.5-liter engine that delivers 191 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque, comparably to the Honda Accord's 1.5-liter Turbocharged engine pumping out 192 for both horsepower and torque. Upgrading options in the Accord lineup affords you a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, making 252 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. Meanwhile, the Sonata's N-Line trim offers a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder powertrain that offers up to 290 horsepower and 311 pound-feet - the most powerful engine option between the two sedans.

Compare Design

The 2021 Sonata makes an impression on your friends, family, and neighbors as you cruise on past, thanks to exciting front-end design and rolling side accents. The LED headlights provide pristine clarity for your nighttime driving, ensuring that you never lose sight of the road. In comparison, the 2021 Accord has been redesigned, but it showcases a less aggressive style that feels more subdued in comparison to the new Sonata.

Both models comfortably seat up to five passengers, allowing you to enjoy a cozy ride anywhere your travels take you. The Honda Accord is a very roomy option, but it falls behind the Sonata when you consider front- and rear-row headroom, as well as rear legroom. The SEL trim offers the Sonata heated front seats and an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat. Honda's second trim doesn't include either feature. And with the Sonata lineup, the front-row passenger can enjoy the convenience of a six-way power-adjustable front passenger seat - the Accord will limit you to only a four-way option.

Compare Technology and Safety

The newest Accord option now comes standard with an eight-inch touchscreen and smartphone integration, finally joining the ranks of the Sonata for added convenience on your drive. The Sonata is standard with the same setup, but it will also offer a 10.25-inch touchscreen, a feature that the Accord does not offer on any model. Both models offer a navigation system, Blue Link®, wireless charging, and so much more, but the Honda Accord only offers these features on its highest trim levels. The Hyundai sedan will make them available with the more affordable SEL trim level.

The Hyundai Sonata comes with the latest Hyundai safety technology, allowing you to enjoy peace of mind on your travels through thick traffic and tricky road conditions. Take advantage of standard features that include Lane Following Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection, and Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go. The Honda Accord offers the Honda Sensing® package, equipping many of the same features to assist you on your drive. However, the Sonata also offers features like a surround-view monitor and remote parking assistance on lower trim levels, while the Accord locks the same features behind its more expensive trim options.
