2020 Hyundai Sonata vs Honda Accord

At Norm Reeves Hyundai Superstore Cerritos, we know drivers sometimes struggle when choosing the perfect car for the Downey, Anaheim, and Garden Grove, CA, areas. After all, the 2020 Hyundai Sonata is very appealing, but there are so many other models on the market.

In our opinion, though, the Sonata really can’t be beat. To show you, we’ve put together this comparison pitting the 2020 Hyundai Sonata against the 2020 Honda Accord in a head-to-head matchup.

Hyundai Sonata vs Accord: Interior Features & Tech

The Sonata also seems to add in a few more standard entertainment features. The Honda Accord includes a 7-inch while the Sonata features an 8-inch touchscreen with HD Radio™. In terms of audio delivery, the Sonata also adds in a bigger 6-speaker audio system, as well as more mobile integrating features. The Honda Accord comes standard with a 4-speaker sound system within its cabin.

Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® are both standard additions in the Sonata as well. With these features, you can fully integrate your phone and take all your favorite apps on the go. The Accord requires a trim level upgrade to include these features.

Safety Features

Vehicle safety tends to be a top priority in both these sedans, though they do take slightly different approaches to keeping passengers protected. The Honda Accord, for example, relies mainly on technology.

In order to keep occupants safe, the Accord relies on a predictive suite to keep an eye on the road for you. The Sonata, on the other hand, wants to cover all your bases.

Sure, the Hyundai Sonata has some smart, predictive technologies, too. These include Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection (FCA-Ped), Smart Cruise Control (SCC) with Stop & Go, and the Lane Keeping Assist (LKA). The Accord offers similar features; however, the Sonata also offers the Driver Attention Warning (DAW), which is an important safety system not included with the Accord.

The Hyundai Sonata also adds in Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), and the Traction Control Support (TCS). When these features are paired with its reinforced body, staying safe isn’t a problem at all.

Vehicle Transmission

One thing that these sedans have in common is that they both feature fairly speedy and fuel-efficient powertrains. However, the Hyundai Sonata take a different approach with its transmission.

The Sonata comes with an exclusive 8-speed automatic SHIFTRONIC® transmission. SHIFTRONIC® is a manumatic that will adapt to your normal shifting behaviors. It also allows you to choose between automatic driving and clutch-free manual driving. The Honda Accord includes a Continuously Variable Transmission.

There’s no doubt that the 2020 Honda Accord has a lot to offer drivers in the Downey, Anaheim, and Garden Grove, California, areas. But the 2020 Hyundai Sonata still seems to pull ahead as the more well-rounded choice.
