2017 Audi A4 vs. 2017 Honda Accord

Auto buyers in Eastchester New York know what they want when looking for luxury and performance in German-built cars. Many times, however, they are caught in between choosing an Audi A4 and a Honda Accord. These car models have very impressive features that suit their built but the 2017 Audi A4 is better than the 2017 Honda Accord considering design and style, technology and safety, and performance. Find out more why the Audi comes on top through this comparison.

Design & Style

These sport sedans are both impressive but it is notable that the newer Honda Accord model is said to be aging in terms of style because it seems that nothing has changed since its 2013 model was launched in the market. What makes the 2017 Honda Accord promising is the spacious interior that can accommodate even tall drivers and passengers. It is also made of solid quality materials that are indeed captivating to the eyes.

The 2017 Audi A4, on the other hand, has managed to elevate its roominess when compared to the more compact A4 versions launched in recent past. It is actually a small sedan but with the comfort it brings to drivers and passengers, it can be categorized as a mid-sized sedan that can accommodate tall drivers as well. What makes it more impressive than its Honda counterpart is the fact that it is blessed with new quality benchmarks for cabin materials.

Technology & Safety

The technology and safety aspect is one thing you will surely consider to know if you are getting the best value for your money when investing in a luxury car. The 2017 Honda Accord is gifted with a LaneWatch camera which can be used to approach blind spot issues. While it was made for this particular purpose, not all drivers have seen this aspect useful. Add to that, the touchscreen controls are not very user-friendly giving it some drawbacks on that aspect.

Meanwhile, the 2017 Audi A4 boasts of a cool-looking Virtual Cockpit matched with a head-up display which guarantees that the driver will keep his eye on the road while driving. Car controls are placed logically giving users ease of access to each knob. It is the best definition of simplicity and user-friendliness.


With regards to the performance side, the 2017 Audi A4 is gifted with a four-cylinder 2.0-liter engine that is capable of producing up to 273lb-ft of torque and 252 horsepower. The 2017 Honda Accord, on the other hand, is blessed with the four-cylinder, 2.4-liter engine that can produce up to 181lb-ft of torque and 185 horsepower.

Come to think of it, the Honda Accord has a bigger engine but the Audi A4 defeats it in that aspect because it produces more horsepower and a faster response that guarantees better experience on the road for the driver and his passengers.

The Bottom Line

After reading this review and learning more about each factor to consider when purchasing a luxury car, you should have realized that the 2017 Audi A4 is a better choice over the 2017 Honda Accord. It is clear that the Accord is packed with features to love but it is also undeniable that the above-standard technology of the Audi A4 makes it the winner.
