1. It's Faster
It may be hard to believe but the Accord will out drag-race a Camaro.
Now we’re not talking about a 426 hp Camaro SS, but just a regular old V6 model. Still, with 312-hp on tap the Camaro’s numbers are bigger than the Accord at 278-hp, but it also weighs 350-lbs more.
According to Chevrolet the Camaro will hit 60 mph in just under 6.0 seconds while Honda says the Accord will do it in 5.5 seconds, if not better. And if that’s not enough, comparing the Accord’s six-speed manual transmission to that of the Camaro’s is like comparing a Swiss watch to a sun dial.
