Midsize sedans continue to be among the most popular vehicles in Canada, thanks to their sleek design, innovative features, advanced safety technologies, and strong performance stats. Three of the most popular current models on Canadian roadways are the 2019 Toyota Camry, the 2018 Honda Accord, and the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu. All three models are impressive options. However, when you compare the three sedans side by side, the 2019 Toyota Camry is the clear superior model. Here’s why:
Under the hood of the 2019 Toyota Camry lurks a standard 2.5-liter engine paired to an eight-speed Direct Shift automatic transmission creating a powertrain that is capable of generating up to 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. The engines powering the 2018 Honda Accord and 2019 Chevrolet Malibu base models simply can’t compete. The Accord’s 1.5-liter engine serves up just 192 horsepower while the Malibu performs even worse, offering only 160 horsepower. If you want some serious get-up-and-go from your vehicle, opt for the 2019 Camry.
Despite being the performance top dog, the base Camry model’s engine is the most efficient on the highway, yielding up to 6.1 liters per 100 kilometers (or 46.3 miles per gallon).* The Accord and Malibu come close but can’t compete with 6.7 L/100 km (42.2 mpg) and 6.6 L/100 km (42.8 mpg, respectively). The victor in the combined fuel economy category is also the 2019 Toyota Camry at 7.4 L/100 km (38.2 mpg), compared to the 2018 Honda Accord’s 7.9 L/100 km (35.8 mpg) and the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu’s 7.5 L/100 km (37.7 mpg).*
