Honda vs. Toyota: Safety

Honda and Toyota have both done a remarkable job creating safety suites that include active driver assistance features to help prevent a potential collision. For example, Honda LaneWatch™ shows a live video on the touchscreen display of your car, SUV, or minivan when you use your right turn signal, providing four times the visibility of the side mirror. Toyota doesn't offer a comparable safety feature on any of its models. See LaneWatch™ in action with a test drive appointment at our Honda dealership in Bourbonnais, IL!

Honda vs. Toyota: Awards

Both Honda and Toyota lead the industry with best-selling models. Though Toyota reliability is impressive when you consider the Camry, sales and awards for the Accord prove it's built with the Honda reliability America loves. Not only does Honda offer one of America's most reliable models but the industry's first two-motor hybrid system with the 2017 Accord hybrid as well. This sophisticated hybrid system provides class-leading EPA fuel economy ratings.

  • For 40 years the Honda Accord remained America's best-selling sedan. (1)
  • The Honda Accord received its 31st "10Best" award from Car and Driver for the 2017 model year-the only vehicle to date to do so. (2)
