When considering your next car, you might be looking for a vehicle that blends reliability, personality, and features designed to make travels through Ithaca, Vestal, and Sayre more engaging. Compare the 2019 Hyundai Sonata vs. Honda Accord, and you'll soon see both of these cars fit the description.

However, if you're only in the market for one car, you'll have a decision to make. Continue reading to learn more about which one is the right fit for your lifestyle.

Sonata vs Accord Interior Amenities

The standard infotainment system in the Hyundai Sonata includes a 7-inch touchscreen, along with Bluetooth® functionality and Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™. It takes just a few seconds to set up a compatible smartphone, and you'll have easy access to playlists, music, and navigation functionality on the touchscreen, just the same way it looks on your phone.

The Honda Accord also features a 7-inch display screen, along with Bluetooth®. Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ are available offerings on the 2019 Accord.

In terms of passenger space, the Sonata bests the Accord in front headroom, front legroom, and rear headroom. This is all important to consider when looking for your next car, as you want to make sure everyone inside the cabin is always satisfied and comfortable at all times.

Warranty Coverage

Vehicle warranty should always be front of mind. Every Hyundai features a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty, 5-year/60,000-mile limited warranty, and 7-year anti-perforation (corrosion) warranty.

The 2019 Honda Accord has a reliable warranty as well, with the powertrain limited warranty a 5-year/60,000-mile offering. The new vehicle limited warranty is a 3-year/36,000-mile plan.

The powertrain limited warranty covers powertrain components (engine and transmission), which have been installed or originally manufactured by Hyundai, defective in material or factory workmanship under normal use. Your Hyundai Sonata also features a 5-year/unlimited mile roadside assistance plan. Service includes towing, lockouts, flat tires, and dead batteries.

Safety Features

Vehicle safety is something you're likely thinking about when searching for a car. The 2019 Sonata is well-equipped with standard and available safety features meant to protect you and your family. Standard Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist come standard. This can track cars in your blind spot and the ones that may be passing by as you're backing out of a parking space.

Available Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection is an available offering. This system warns you of a stopped vehicle or pedestrian up ahead, and provides braking if necessary, to avoid impact. Every Honda comes with similar technology through the Honda Sensing platform, which includes the Collision Mitigation Braking System, Road Departure Mitigation System, and Adaptive Cruise Control.

Both vehicles include a rearview camera standard, with an image of what's happening behind the car displayed on the touchscreen in the center console area.
