Get the 2017 Honda Accord in Cook County IL
As the world's leading producer of engines, it probably comes as no surprise to the Honda faithful that the Accord has the advantage over the Camry for performance. The Accord LX comes equipped with a high-tech direct-injected 2.4-liter inline 4-cylinder engine, delivering an impressive 185 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque. Despite the slightly larger 2.5-liter engine in the Camry, it only manages 178 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque. Also, the advanced MacPherson strut front suspension in the 2017 Accord provides superior ride and handling qualities while also reducing interior noise, vibration and harshness. Additional noise reductions are derived from careful tailoring of the underbody and suspension systems.
The 2017 Accord has the advantage for safety as well. While you have to buy one of the higher-priced Camry trims to get the more advanced safety features, you can get premium safety features standard with the Accord LX. An example of this is the Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Dynamic Guidelines, which gives you a better view of what's behind you with three different angles: normal, top-down and wide. And the Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure on the Accord enhances occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions by distributing crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle. Additional safety features in the Accord LX include standard Vehicle Stability Assist, Electronic Brake Distribution and Brake Assist, as well as available Lane Keeping Assist System and Adaptive Cruise Control.
