Both Honda models easily seat five. The Civic gives everyone on board a spacious 97.8 cubic feet of total passenger volume and an equally convenient 15.1 cubic feet of cargo volume for grocery bags, luggage, or whatever else it is you’re needing to stow.

In the event you find yourself needing a little bit of extra room due to carpooling or a growing family, the Honda Accord accommodates this need by supplying a passenger volume of 105.6 cubic feet and a cargo volume that measures at 16.7 cubic feet.

A Few Noteworthy Conveniences

While both of these Honda sedans offer a lot of similar features, like the standard driver-assistive systems that come with Honda Sensing®, there are some small differences between what these cars offer.

While they each have a standard automatic climate control system, the 2021 Honda Accord features standard dual-zone settings so you and your front passenger each have individual control over the system.

The 2021 Accord also comes standard with the smartphone integration of Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. The Honda Civic does however offer its own unique features, including available Honda LaneWatch™. This makes changing lanes much easier since you’ll be able to see a live view from the rearview mirror camera on the center display.

Civic vs Accord: An Emphasis on Performance

2021 Honda Accord Engine Specs

Each car delivers first-rate performance potential. Over in the Civic, you’ll find two impressive engine possibilities.

  • 2.0L 4-cylinder: This standard engine creates 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque.
  • 1.5L turbo 4-cylinder: This available engine creates 174 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque.

Just like the Civic, the Accord has two gas engines to choose from. On top of that, it has a third option as well, its available hybrid powertrain.

  • 1.5L turbo 4-cylinder: This standard engine creates 192 horsepower with 192 lb-ft of torque.
  • 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder: This available engine creates 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque.
  • Hybrid Powertrain: This available engine creates 212 total system horsepower.

If you are sticking with a gas engine, the 2021 Honda Civic offers better efficiency from its available turbo engine, which gets an EPA-estimated 32 city/42 highway MPG in the EX and EX-L trim levels.2

To get the best gas mileage possible though, you’ll want the hybrid configuration of the Accord since it gets an EPA-estimated 48 city/48 highway MPG in the Hybrid, Hybrid EX, and Hybrid EX-L trim levels.1
