The Accord and the Civic both have a long-standing tradition of delighting customers with exciting performance capabilities, unwavering appeal, and modern features. Across the last several decades, these two models have benefited from thoughtful updates to promote their continued desirability. At Muller Honda of Gurnee, our new car shoppers often ask about the differences between the 2020 Honda Accord Sedan and the 2020 Honda Civic Sedan. While they both promise to impress drivers, you may discover that their differences make one of these models a preferred option for you.
For the 2020 Honda Civic Sedan, two powertrains are available across five trims. The entry-level engine is an inline-4 design that is capable of producing 158 horsepower. Top Civic Sedan trims are equipped with an inline-4 turbocharged engine that puts out 174 horsepower. In comparison, the 2020 Honda Accord Sedan is offered with three powertrain options across six trims. One of the gas-powered engines is an inline-4, 1.5-liter turbo engine that puts off 192 horsepower. The superior gas-powered option is a 2.0-liter turbo, an inline-4 powertrain that generates 252 horsepower. You can also choose a hybrid powertrain for your 2020 Honda Accord Sedan. The hybrid design mates a regenerative braking system and battery to an inline-4 gas engine.
The exterior designs for these two models are similar in some ways, thanks to their familiar traits. Still, they carry unique overall styles that make them easy to differentiate on the road. The Civic Sedan is the smaller of these two vehicles. It brings clean flow throughout the profile, and the roof tapers smoothly into the rear spoiler. The Civic Sedan’s hood has a sharp forward-trending angle, and this produces a sporty look.
In comparison, the Honda Accord Sedan’s hood has a gentle angle forward, which gives it a refined yet athletic look. It also features a fastback-style profile that produces a definition over the trunk’s lid. Both of these Honda cars have a roof-mounted fin-style antenna, power-adjustable side mirrors, distinctive LED headlights, and identifiable grille designs.
With 11 total trims across both of these vehicles, you can expect significant variation in the interior and safety features. Many of these features are shared between the two models, and some of them include a navigation system, leather or cloth material, SiriusXM technologies, heated and power-adjusting front seats, USB ports, Honda Sensing assistive safety tech, smartphone integration, remote entry and numerous other items that you can explore in greater detail with a test drive at our dealership.
