Looking for a practical, reliable, attractive and efficient family sedan in the Ontario area? Midtown Honda of Toronto has you covered!
With both cars completely redesigned for 2019, the competition between America’s two most popular family sedans is heating up. Featuring brand new looks and powertrains, both cars have drastically upped their game. However, the 2019 Honda Accord recently won Car and Driver’s “2019 North American Car of the Year” award, the all-new Accord is without a doubt, a step above the new Toyota Camry. Let’s take a look at why.
First things first: the most noticeable difference between these two cars is their exterior and interior styling. While beauty is in the eye of the beholder, both vehicles impress but the Accord stands out as more mature and elegant. With a sweeping roof and flowing, muscular lines that extend from the front to the rear, the 2019 Honda Accord is a case study in automotive design that proves family sedans don’t have to be (or look) boring. Featuring a powerful-looking rear end and a purposeful, snub-nose front, this is a car that will always give you joy when you look at it. The new Toyota Camry, however, while greatly improved from previous generations, is busy in its design language, choosing aggressiveness over elegance. These differences in styling are also apparent in the interior. The 2019 Honda Accord has an interior that looks like it wouldn’t be out of place in a Mercedes. Exquisite materials and impeccable fit and finish, the Accord’s cabin invites you and your passengers into a luxurious space that everyone will enjoy being in. Boasting 1,075 mm/1,026 mm of legroom in the front and rear as well as 0.47 cubic meter of cargo space, the Accord is more spacious compared to the Camry.
Family sedans have a reputation for being boring to look at and even more boring to drive. That was then, this is now. The 2019 Honda Accord Sport is powered by an intoxicating 2.0 liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that produces a healthy 192 hp and 161 Nm of torque. Compared to the Toyota Camry equivalent, which only generates 203 hp and 184 Nm of torque. Mated to the Accord’s exciting engine is a 10-speed automatic that is smooth and efficient while the Camry only has an 8-speed.
New cars these days come loaded with features and advanced safety technology and the new Honda Accord and Toyota Camry are no exception. Featuring Honda Sensing active safety technology, drivers will enjoy the latest in automotive safety tech like Collision Mitigation Braking System, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist System and more. The Accord also features a standard 20.32 cm touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration so you can easily sync your smartphone to the car for music and navigation.
The Bottom Line
While cars continue to get better and better, the competition remains in top gear. The reviews have been written and the verdict is in: the 2019 Honda Accord is the best family sedan for your money. Stop by Midtown Honda in Toronto and find out for yourself!

We’re here to help and will put the Honda Civic up against not one but two fierce competitors in this segment: the Toyota Corolla and Mazda Mazda3.
The compact sedan segment is one of the most competitive markets in the car world, with drivers looking for good looks, fuel efficiency and fun road manners at an affordable price, auto makers all bring their A-game. The 2019 Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic and Mazda Mazda3 are all stellar examples of this.
For 2019 these cars remain relatively unchanged in terms of styling but that is testament to how well done all of these vehicles are. The Honda Civic continues to lead the charge with its futuristic design language, performance and practicality.
Featuring sharp lines that demand attention, the 2019 Honda Civic stands out dramatically from the crowd. The Toyota Corolla and Mazda Mazda3 are both well designed and easy on the eyes but neither stir your emotions like the Civic does. Passion is built into the Civic.
Even on the base trims, the Civic dominates the competition. Case-in-point: The Civic comes equipped with a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with 180 horsepower while the Toyota Corolla has a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder with 132 horsepower and the Mazda Mazda3 armed with 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine 155 horsepower. Despite having the biggest and most powerful engine out of the bunch, the Honda Civic still manages to achieve the best fuel economy with a staggering 64 kpg on the highway.
The 2019 Honda Civic comes well equipped no matter which trim level you choose. Equipped with standard features like a 12-volt power outlet in the front, Bluetooth Audio, power-assisted ventilated front disc brakes and more, you simply get far more bang for your buck with the Civic. Listen to your favorite music through an 180-watt stereo system with 8 speakers. It also comes equipped with heated front seats that'll keep you warm on cold days.
The Bottom Line
While the Toyota Corolla and Mazda Mazda3 are good cars and not bad choices, the 2019 Honda Civic remains the BEST choice. Stop in at Midtown Honda in Toronto and let us show you why the 2019 Honda Civic deserves your attention.
The hottest vehicles on the road currently are crossovers and there’s no short supply of options. At Midtown Honda of Ontario in Toronto, we have all the latest and greatest crossovers from Honda, including the award-winning 2019 Honda CR-V. Let’s take a look at two of the CR-V’s main competitors: the Nissan Rogue and Toyota RAV4.
The 2019 Honda CR-V remains one of the top rated crossovers on the market and for good reason: it’s everything a driver could want at an affordable price. Featuring dashing good looks, an exceptional interior and enough cargo space to qualify as a garage, the 2019 Honda CR-V leaves the Nissan Rogue and Toyota RAV4 in the dust in almost every category.
Redesigned for 2019, the CR-V comes across sleek, mature and practical. Easy on the eyes, the CR-V shines in comparison to the Nissan Rogue and Toyota RAV4. Coupled with a thoughtful and well-built interior cabin, drivers and passengers both will feel at home inside the CR-V.
The 2019 Honda CR-V hits the ground running with a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 190 horsepower and delivers a respectable 8.7L/7.2L (city/hwy). Compared to the Nissan Rogue which has a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine producing 170 hp @6000 rpm and the Toyota RAV4 also with a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine generating 176 hp @6000 rpm, the CR-V once again is the clear winner in this field.
In this area, all three crossovers come loaded with creature comforts even on the base trims. However, the 2019 Honda CR-V aims to pamper its occupants with more interior and cargo space. With features like an easy fold-down 60/40 split rear seat, multi-angle rearview camera and an automatic climate control system, you’ll want for nothing in the CR-V.
The Bottom Line
Hailed as the 2019 Motor Trend SUV of the Year, the 2019 Honda CR-V delivers on all fronts. While the Toyota RAV4 and Nissan Rogue are good vehicles in their own way, the votes are in and the 2019 Honda CR-V is simply better than the rest.
