Each model also comes standard with a suite of driver assistance technology in the form of Toyota’s Safety Sense P and Honda’s Sensing Safety package.

So, you’re probably wondering what exactly the difference between the Accord and Camry is when it comes to technology. There’s actually two differences: Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

These two functions allow you to synch up your Iphone or Android Phone to the vehicle’s display screen and utilize your favorite apps with the touch of a button. Sounds great doesn’t it? It is and the 2018 Accord has it, but the 2018 Camry doesn’t. Toyota has inexplicably been unable to provide these two very popular features on any of their vehicles and currently has no plans to do so. Score a win in this category for the 2018 Accord.
