Accord versus Camry: This is a contest that goes back more than 30 years, and continues to this day -- a review of the 2018 Camry called the Accord "Camry's deadliest rival." Deadliest? We doubt that any blood has actually been shed (really -- have you seen the safety ratings on these cars?), but the Accord and Camry were always just too alike -- safe, comfortable, affordable, fuel-efficient -- to be anything but rivals.
They were both born in the days when the world was reeling from oil shortages and high gas prices, and so their compact size and high mileage were the main selling points. But later, as economies boomed in Japan and North America, both cars became a bit larger, higher-powered, and much more stylish in design. (One even features a fastback roof in its current model). Whatever the size and horsepower, both these cars just kept selling and selling and selling -- as well as racking up appearances on critics' "best" lists. It's a competition that doesn't appear likely to end anytime soon: One car is in its eighth generation; the other in its 10th.
