Hyundai Sonata vs Honda Accord: Interior Space and Amenities

There's room for five people inside both the Sonata and the Accord. For those up front, enjoy the extra comfort of the Sonata. It has 40.4 inches of front headroom and 45.5 inches of legroom. The Accord comes up a bit short of the Sonata, with 39.5 inches of front headroom and 42.3 inches of front legroom. The Accord can feel a bit cramped when compared to the Sonata. The Sonata also bests the Accord in total passenger volume.

When the temperature dips, enjoy the heated front seats and stay warm regardless of what's going on outside the cabin. The Sonata also comes with a heated steering, which can warm up your hands and allow you to grip the wheel with ease. Looking for room to store important cargo? The trunks in each of these vehicles approach 17 cubic feet, enough space for shopping bags, luggage, or sports gear for weekend outings.

Technologically Friendly Automobiles

Bring your tech with you inside the Sonata and the Accord. These two vehicles make it easy to use our technology. High-tech features like 7-inch touchscreens and Bluetooth® capability can be found in the Sonata and Accord. SiriusXM® Satellite Radio is offered, too, meaning you have access to over 150 channels of commercial-free music and talk, along with live sports.

The Sonata goes a step further, with standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ functionality. Mirror a smartphone to the touchscreen and read text messages, play music, and access navigation features. This is only an available feature in the 2019 Honda Accord.

Safety Comes First

 The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety considers both the 2019 Sonata and 2019 Accord safe vehicles, giving each the 2019 TOP SAFETY PICK designation. Both cars work to prevent accidents with the driver assistive safety features. This includes Lane Keep Assist, which detects whether a car is drifting from its intended lane. Corrective steering is able to guide the car back to the center of the lane it was in.

The Sonata comes standard with Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. A warning will be provided if a car is in your blind spot or approaching from the side when putting the car in reverse. This is only an available feature in the Accord.

Hyundai Sonata vs Honda Accord: Choosing a Midsize Sedan

With a strong mix of interior space, user-friendly technology, and safety features, both the 2019 Hyundai Sonata and Honda Accord stand out as capable midsize sedans.

However, with a strong offering of interior amenities, tech, and safety, the 2019 Sonata is head and shoulders above the Accord in the midsize sedan category. Contact Peacock Hyundai Hilton Head today to take it for a test drive and see how it handles Hardeeville, Hilton Head Island, and Bluffton.
