2020 Hyundai Sonata vs 2020 Honda Accord

Serving Fresno, CA

The Hyundai Sonata and the Honda Accord are midsize sedans that have impressed Fresno's drivers for several decades. For 2020, the Sonata ushers in a new generation with significant and attractive updates from bumper to bumper. At the base MSRP level, the Sonata is slightly more affordable than the Honda Accord. The Accord's last generation-based improvements were made in 2018. These are the tip of the iceberg for the differences between the Sonata and the Accord, so a more in-depth look is essential before you pick out your next car.


The 2020 Hyundai Sonata has a sweeping, modern presence from front to rear, and it shows off a few features that immediately differentiate it from other sedans on the road. For example, piercing headlights are integrated with a lower LED light ribbon and a second hidden light ribbon that trends back along the hood's perimeter. The Sonata also has an LED light bar at the rear that curves upward at both sides. A dual-tip exhaust pipe is mounted under the rear bumper. This car's appeal extends beyond its individualized styling. It carries through to the hands-free smart trunk, a panoramic sunroof, power windows, beautiful wheel designs, heated side mirrors, and other equipment. The Honda Accord has a more traditional flow from front to rear. Its headlights are linked to the chrome bar on the grille. The sides and hood are mostly smooth except for a few crisp personality lines. At the rear, the taillights and the exhaust tips have expected styling and placement.


The standout appeal of the 2020 Hyundai Sonata extends inside the spacious cabin. The design is defined by a horizontal flow that wraps across the dashboard and through the side doors. This design is highlighted by blue ambient lighting. Some or all of the Sonata cars may have dual-tone interior coloring, heated seats, a mounted display screen, a navigation system, smart device app integration, a Bose sound system, and a few other items. The Honda Accord for 2020 has push-button gear selectors in the center console, cloth or leather material, a sunroof, a sound system, a color display screen, and a few other features.


The base powertrain in the 2020 Sonata is a 2.5-liter engine connected to an eight-speed auto transmission. It produces 191 horsepower, and the Sonata's other mechanical features include drive mode select, idle stop, front-wheel drive, and others. The 2020 Honda Accord is also available with a few powertrain options. The base engine is a 1.5-liter turbo engine with auto transmission, and it generates 190 horsepower.
