While fewer people buy mid-size sedans than they used to, the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry are still market stalwarts. Compared with a similarly priced crossover, they generally have more style, superior driving dynamics, more features, fancier interiors, and better gas mileage.
Then there’s the Accord Hybrid and Camry Hybrid. By adding electric motors to these best-selling sedans, these models cost a little more than their gas-only counterparts but get far better gas mileage. When you get space, comfort, and performance, why turn down a chance at nearly 50 mpg as part of the bargain? But the Accord Hybrid and Camry Hybrid have some different strengths that can be appealing for different buyers. And both are updated for the 2021 model year. Based on our tests of these two hybrid sedans, we’ll go over which of them is best in a set of different areas, and which is our top pick overall.
