Toyota Camry vs. Honda Accord & Ford Fusion | Waterford, MI

Discover the Difference between the 2018 Toyota Camry and the Competition

With a sharp and sleek style, and an incredibly convenient and comfortable driving experience, the new 2018 Toyota Camry is a tough sedan to beat, and if you're looking for the best value among spacious and well-equipped midsize cars in the greater Waterford and Detroit areas, you're going to love all that this new Camry has to offer.

What's new? Toyota's popular midsize sedan has been completely redesigned for 2018, upping the ante and adding the smartest new tech, the most premium materials for the price, and a whole new look that's completely shaken off the brand's "slow-and-steady" style that we were used to in the early 2000s. The new design is aggressive, bold, and brings a pretty surprising luxury-sport-car vibe to an otherwise modest and modern car. Of course, the competition in Sterling Heights, Southfield, and Bloomfield is always going to keep trying to top the Camry--but, take a quick look at how the new 2018 Camry stacks up, and you'll see exactly why this sedan should be at the top of your list.

Take a look here to see competitive info against top rivals like Ford and Honda, and to browse new inventory, to see the difference a new Toyota sedan can make.

The 2018 Toyota Camry vs. the 2018 Honda Accord

Newness doesn't necessarily put the Camry ahead in this comparison. The Honda Accord is also all-new for 2018: it changed out some engine options, kicked its available coupe configuration to the curb, and set its sights hard on the new 2018 Camry. Let's see if it can keep up.

  • The 2018 Camry's base engine offers an EPA-estimated 34 mpg combined and 41 mpg on the highway, far outshining the 2018 Accord's 30 mpg city and mere 38 mpg highway
  • Conscious of price? The 2018 Camry is slightly more affordable than the base 2018 Accord. But, in general, pricing is very close
  • The 2018 Camry offers standard protection under its innovate Toyota Safety Sense P (TSS-P) package, which includes forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, rearview camera, lane departure warning with lane keep assist, and adaptive cruise control--Accord offers them, but you'll have to pay for it as an extra
  • The Honda Accord dropped its V6 engine in favor of a turbocharged four-cylinder, dropping max power to just 252 HP; the 2018 Camry's available V6 engine gives you an incredible 301 horsepower
  • Just looking for base power? The 2018 Camry is good for 203 horsepower from its standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine; the 2018 Accord offers 192 horsepower from its standard 1.5-liter four-cylinder
  • Both sedans give you an attractive 7.0-inch display screen as standard; but the 2018 Camry's system is an interactive and responsive touchscreen. The Honda is "for display only" until you get into higher trim levels
  • The 2018 Accord does offer Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, which are hot new systems right now; the 2018 Camry doesn't, but it's because Toyota has created its own smartphone connectivity system to work seamlessly with its Entune options, and provide many of the same features--but better

The 2018 Toyota Camry vs. the 2018 Ford Fusion

For years, the Ford Fusion reigned supreme among midsize-sedan buyers who were buying for looks alone. Its bold grille and sharp headlights cut a sharp figure on the road, and its attractive cabin design made it a top choice for people who wanted luxury without the price. Thanks to the 2018 Camry's redesign, though, it easily matches the Fusion for fashion as well as function.

  • The 2018 Fusion rides on the modest success of its 2017 MY redesign; the 2018 Camry is completely fresh
  • The Ford Fusion is slightly more affordable than the base Toyota Camry, but those prices rise pretty quickly as you add package option and features to the Fusion
  • Want to be comfortable inside of your new car? The 2018 Camry's redesigned cabin is luxuriously comfortable, while remaining affordable--Ford relies a little too heavily on hard plastics
  • The Fusion has lots of trim levels, but isn't really varied in its interior choices--but with options ranging from soft fabric seats to a red leather interior, it's easy to find a new Camry that you'll love
  • The 2018 Camry's standard 203-horsepower 2.5-liter engine is fun, efficient, and easy to handle compared to the Fusion's underpowered 175-horsepower standard engine
  • If you're looking for a safe option for you and your family, both of these sedans have good safety ratings--but the 2018 Camry comes standard with TSS-P (Toyota Safety Sense) which gives you tons of standard driver-assistance features
