The 2019 Hyundai Sonata vs 2019 Honda Accord 

The 2019 Hyundai Sonata has been one of the best midsize sedans in America for a long time. Buyers can get the Sonata in one of seven trim levels, so there’s a model that’s perfect for everyone. You can get the Sonata configured as a plain people-mover or you can trick it out as a sophisticated sedan that provides lots of luxury. With so much going for it, it’s no wonder the Sonata is a big-seller at dealerships like the Riverside area Hyundai dealer, Cardinale Hyundai in Corona. One of the Sonata’s popular rivals is the 2019 Honda Accord. If you’ve been shopping for a midsize sedan and you’ve been considering either of these two vehicles, you’ll want to read on as we compare them head to head to see which one comes out on top.

Compare Price

Most of us have to take price into consideration when we’re buying a new car. Hyundai is famous for producing high-quality vehicles at that represent great value, so it’s not a surprise that the 2019 Hyundai Sonata wins in this category. The Sonata has a Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $22,300. The 2019 Honda Accord has an MSRP that starts at $23,720. That’s a considerable price difference. And because the base Sonata comes with many standard features that cost more in the base Accord, buyers will save even more money when they buy a Sonata at a dealership like an area Riverside Hyundai dealership.

Both the Sonata and the Accord provide comfortable cabins, but passengers will enjoy the extra passenger volume provided by the Sonata. In addition to having more total passenger space, the Sonata also has more front and rear headroom, more front legroom and more rear hip room than the Accord.

Driving Dynamics

Because the 2019 Sonata has a smaller turning radius than the Accord, it will be easier for Sonata drivers to negotiate small spaces, such as those encountered in city driving and parking lots.


Brakes are one of a car’s most important safety components. Sonata owners will have the peace of mind that comes with knowing their car has a better braking system than the Accord. Recent testing shows the Sonata was able to come to a complete stop from 60 mph in 119 feet. The Accord needed 112 feet to accomplish this task.


The Sonata was engineered to have an extremely quiet cabin that shields occupants from road and wind noise. The Accord is relatively quiet at slow speeds, but once it reaches highway speeds, the passengers will hear wind noise and tire noise.


No other automaker can beat Hyundai’s warranty. The 2019 Sonata includes a 5-year/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. The Accord comes with a 3-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty.

In The End

We think the 2019 Hyundai Sonata and the 2019 Honda Accord are both exceptional cars. But when you examine categories such as price, cabin noise, interior space, brakes and the warranty, it’s easy to see that the 2019 Sonata wins this competition.
