Safety Comparison

The Accord Coupe has standard Active Head Restraints, which use a specially designed headrest to protect the driver and front passenger from whiplash. During a rear-end collision, the Active Head Restraints system moves the headrests forward to prevent neck and spine injuries. The Camaro doesn’t offer a whiplash protection system.

The Accord Coupe offers an optional Collision Mitigation Braking System, which uses forward mounted sensors to warn the driver of a possible collision ahead. If the driver doesn’t react and the system determines a collision is imminent, it automatically applies the brakes at full-force in order to reduce the force of the crash or avoid it altogether. The Camaro doesn't offer collision warning or crash mitigation brakes.

The Accord Coupe’s optional lane departure warning system alerts a temporarily inattentive driver when the vehicle begins to leave its lane and gently nudges the vehicle back towards its lane. The Camaro doesn’t offer a lane departure warning system.

The Accord Coupe offers available parking sensors to help warn the driver about vehicles, pedestrians or other obstacles behind or, for the Accord Coupe Touring in front of the vehicle. The Camaro doesn’t offer a front parking aid.

Both the Accord Coupe and the Camaro have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights and rearview cameras.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) performs roof strength tests. In that test the Accord Coupe earned the top rating of “Good” because its roof supported over four times the Accord Coupe’s weight before being crushed five inches. The Camaro was rated lower at “Acceptable.”

For its top level performance in all IIHS frontal, side, rear impact and roof-crush tests, and with its optional front crash prevention system, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety grants the Accord Coupe the rating of “Top Pick” for 2017, a rating granted to only 103 vehicles tested by the IIHS. The Camaro was not even a “Top Pick” for 2016.

Warranty Comparison

The Accord Coupe’s corrosion warranty is unlimited miles longer than the Camaro’s (unlimited vs. 100,000 miles).

Reliability Comparison

For smoother operation, better efficiency and fewer moving parts, the engines in the Accord Coupe have an overhead cam design, rather than the old pushrod design of some of the engines in the Camaro.

Car and Driver

Suspension and Handling Comparison

The Accord Coupe’s drift compensation steering can automatically compensate for road conditions which would cause the vehicle to drift from side to side, helping the driver to keep the vehicle straight more easily. The Camaro doesn’t offer drift compensation steering.

For better maneuverability, the Accord Coupe LX-S’ turning circle is .8 feet tighter than the Camaro’s (37.6 feet vs. 38.4 feet).

Chassis Comparison

For excellent aerodynamics, the Accord Coupe has standard flush composite headlights. The Camaro has recessed headlights that spoil its aerodynamic shape and create extra drag.

The Accord Coupe uses computer-generated active noise cancellation to help remove annoying noise and vibration from the passenger compartment, especially at low frequencies. The Camaro doesn’t offer active noise cancellation.

Passenger Space Comparison

The Accord Coupe has standard seating for 5 passengers; the Camaro can only carry 4.

The Accord Coupe has 2.6 cubic feet more passenger volume than the Camaro Coupe (95.6 vs. 93).

The Accord Coupe has .5 inches more front headroom, 3.9 inches more front shoulder room, 2.2 inches more rear headroom, 3.8 inches more rear legroom and 4.7 inches more rear shoulder room than the Camaro Coupe.

Cargo Capacity Comparison

The Accord Coupe has a much larger trunk than the Camaro Coupe (13.7 vs. 9.1 cubic feet).

With its coupe body style, valet key, locking rear seatbacks and remote trunk release lockout, the Accord offers cargo security. The Camaro’s non-lockable folding seat defeats cargo security.

Ergonomics Comparison

The Accord Coupe’s standard power windows have a locking feature to keep children from operating them. Chevrolet does not offer a locking feature on the Camaro’s standard power windows.

If the windows are left down on the Accord Coupe the driver can raise them all using the key in the outside lock cylinder. On a hot day the driver can lower the windows from outside the vehicle using the key in the outside lock cylinder or the keyless remote. The driver of the Camaro can only operate the windows from inside the vehicle, with the ignition on.

The Accord Coupe has a standard locking fuel door with a remote release located convenient to the driver. A locking fuel door helps prevent vandalism, such as sugar in the tank and fuel theft. The Camaro doesn’t offer a locking fuel door.

The Accord Coupe’s standard speed-sensitive wipers speed up when the vehicle does, so that the driver doesn’t have to continually adjust the speed of the wipers. The Camaro’s manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted. The Accord Coupe Touring’s standard wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically according to the amount of rainfall on the windshield.

While driving with high beams on, sensitive light sensors standard on the Accord Coupe Touring detect other vehicles which could be blinded and automatically switch to low beams. The Camaro doesn’t offer automatic dimming high beams.

The Accord Coupe has a standard dual zone air conditioning allows the driver and front passenger to choose two completely different temperatures so people with different temperature preferences won’t have to compromise. This makes both the driver and front passenger as comfortable as possible. Dual zone air conditioning costs extra on the Camaro.

To keep a safe, consistent following distance, the Accord Coupe offers an optional Adaptive Cruise Control, which alters the speed of the vehicle without driver intervention. This allows the driver to use cruise control more safely without constantly having to disengage it when approaching slower traffic. The Camaro doesn’t offer an adaptive cruise control.

Economic Advantages Comparison

According to The Car Book by Jack Gillis, the Accord Coupe is less expensive to operate than the Camaro because it costs $747 less to do the manufacturer’s suggested maintenance for 50,000 miles. Typical repairs cost much less on the Accord Coupe than the Camaro, including $208 less for a water pump, $177 less for an alternator, $324 less for front brake pads, $156 less for a fuel pump, $89 less for front struts and $168 less for a timing belt/chain.

IntelliChoice estimates that five-year ownership costs (depreciation, financing, insurance, fuel, fees, repairs and maintenance) for the Honda Accord Coupe will be $2664 to $6097 less than for the Chevrolet Camaro.
