The Sonata also comes with a drivetrain warranty that lasts for 10 years or up to 100,000 miles, whereas the Accord’s warranty is half that with just 5 years or 60,000 miles of service.

Interior Features

The 2016 Hyundai Sonata includes plenty of features that are pricey extras on the 2016 Honda Accord, or features that just aren’t available on the Accord at all. Some of these features include:

  • Hands-free calling with voice commands and Bluetooth streaming audio
  • In-vehicle destination guidance with GPS real-time turn-by-turn navigation
  • Free roadside assistance from Hyundai and associated dealerships and garages

Safety Features

The 2016 Hyundai Sonata has crucial safety features that have been left off of the 2016 Honda Accord, making the Sonata a safer and more secure car. Here’s what you’ll get with the Sonata:

  • Emergency services via Hyundai Blue Link telematics, which lets you contact an operator at any time for a direct line to local first responders
  • Airbag deployment notification, which sends an alert to Blue Link emergency services when airbags deploy in a crash
  • Stolen vehicle tracking and assistance, which lets law enforcement track a vehicle that has been stolen
  • Vehicle alarm notification, which alerts you when your vehicle’s alarm security system is tripped


The 2016 Hyundai Sonata has much more front head room than the 2016 Honda Accord. It also boasts significantly more front leg room, rear hip room, and rear head room. In fact, the interior volume is a 122.4 cubic feet measurement to the Accord’s mere 116 cubic feet. That’s six more feet of space you’ll get in the Accord! You’ll also get an impressive 16.3 cubic feet of cargo space in the Sonata, as opposed to the Accord’s 15.5 cubic feet of cargo space.
