2019 Honda Accord vs 2019 Honda Civic

Serving Highland Park, IL

For several years now, the midsize Honda Accord and the compact-sized Honda Civic have dominated their respective segments with an enviable combination of reliability, durability, efficiency, and high all-around value. The 2019 model year finds both vehicles at different points in their tenth production cycles. While the Accord is still relatively fresh and only has the base engine choice removed from its top-level trim, the Civic—now midway through its current production cycle—is the recipient of several upgrades. Ultimately, the 2019 Honda Accord and 2019 Honda Civic have the following attributes in common:

Lots of Passenger and Cargo Space

Another main attribute of the 2019 Honda Accord and the 2019 Honda Civic is the remarkable amount of interior space you get. As the smaller of the two vehicles, the Civic offers the most space with its hatchback variant, which combines a maximum of 97.2 cubic feet of passenger volume (on the base-level LX and Sport) with a standard cargo space of 22.6 cubic feet. On the Accord, passenger volume maxes out at 105.6 cubic feet on the base-level LX, and standard cargo volume is measured at 16.7 cubic feet. Clearly, go with the Civic Hatchback if cargo space is of utmost importance to you; indeed, you can expand it to 46.2 cubic feet if you fold down the rear seatback.

Standard Honda Sensing

For the 2019 model year, the Honda Civic received a pair of driver-assistance technologies from the Honda Sensing suite on all trims, rather than having to upgrade in trim to do so. On the Civic, Honda Sensing consists of lane keeping assist system for keeping you from moving out of the lane you’re driving in and adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow for automatically setting a safe distance from a vehicle ahead of you in all driving situations. On the 2019 Honda Accord, Honda Sensing is already on all trims, and it consists of four features: collision mitigation braking for automatically stopping when sensing an imminent crash, road departure mitigation for keeping you inside of lane markings, forward collision warning to reduce or prevent the severity of a collision, and lane departure warning for warning you when you move over a lane.
