The 2016 Hyundai Sonata and the 2016 Honda Accord should both be on your list of midsize sedans to check out here in the Frankfort and Orland Park, IL area if you’re in the market for a vehicle in this class. It would be hard to disagree that these two models are at the forefront of this competitive segment. That said, there are some key differences that you can find out about below!

Efficiency and Performance

Fuel economy, power, and performance all combine when making a great car. When it comes to the 2016 Hyundai Sonata, expect an EPA fuel efficiency rating of 25 mpg city/38 mpg highway/30 mpg combined. The Sonata uses a 2.5L four-cylinder to make 185 hp and 178 lb-ft of torque.

The 2016 Honda Accord receives an EPA rating of 27 mpg city/37 mpg highway/31 mpg combined* with its 2.4L four-cylinder and continuously variable transmission. That engine makes 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque.
