Both are hideous looking!! I actually like the previous gen Accord better in terms of exterior styling, the new one has an ugly transformer bug look to it.

And why only show the side profile of the Camry? You show the weird grill of Accord, but why not show the even worse grill on the Camry?

The Camry has a scary front end letís be honest, itís not pleasant or elegant at all. Toyota when nuts with this new gen Camry. Also the interior quality isnít all that either. Very cheap feeling and hollow sounding doors when closing. Still too much cheap plastic and feeling trim everywhere.

Iíd rather buy a Sonata over any of them.

I like the Camry over the Accord style wise.

Agreed, side profile of Camry is nice but front grill is a stain against humanity.

For the Accord, the grill just needs to lose all the chrome and it would look 10 times better

We drove many cars including the Accord and Camry, wound up buying a Mazda6 Signature.

Of all the cars my favorite was a MB E43 but at over 80K I could not justify the expense.

Camry has nice safety features but when I rented one in FL it was IMPOSSIBLE to keep the windows from fogging up. Recirc off and AC on, of course but defrost, max AX, nothing worked except excessive heat.

Normally, I just set the AC on to a reasonable temperature, (never recirculate) but my hunch is the AC is insufficient. .

Sonata instead or even a Legacy with AWD, don't know if it has been redesigned lately, though.

I like both as far as styling - drove both (Hybrids)....relatively similar.

Accord has better MPG by a few points.

What I am scared of is seat comfort on long rides....current car is 2010 Passat and I think the German seat design is better.

I’m not a fan of CVTs, so that would rule out the Accord for me.

The new Camry only looks good in the sportier XSE trim, the base model is ugly.

Both are fugly but if you actually enjoy driving, go with the Accord as the Camry will bore you to sleep while driving.

Camry for me. The Accord is fine too, but I prefer the Toyota motor and transmission as long as it is not a CVT, nor the hybrid. I don't care at all about CVTs, unless it is on a snowmobile or ATV where maintenance is easy to perform. Choose either a 4-cylinder or a V6 (V6 for me, but the 4 has plenty of HP):
