The 2016 Volkswagen vs. the Honda Accord--Which Midsize Sedan Will Be Your Pick?

The iconic Volkswagen Passat has been updated for the 2016 model year, rendering it even more stylish, sporty, and confidence-inspiring on every family outing. Of course, there is seemingly no shortage of options for drivers shopping the midsize sedan segment; if, however, you are the kind of shopper who prioritizes value, versatility, and quality above all else, then the 2016 Passat is particularly worthy of your serious consideration.

Not quite convinced the new Passat truly has the chops to cater to your unique needs? Take a look at the comparison we have conducted below, in which we pinned the Passat against another segment mainstay, the Honda Accord--we think it will soon become clear which of the two is the superior choice.

2016 Volkswagen Passat vs. 2016 Honda Accord

  • The Volkswagen Passat is a bit more affordable than the Honda Accord, meaning more drivers in the Riverhead, NY area will find that the Passat is priced comfortably within their budget.
  • The Passat offers you the flexibility to tow up to 1000 pounds, whereas Honda does not recommend any amount of towing when operating the Accord.
  • With the 2016 Passat, drivers will enjoy the increased flexibility afforded to them by the rear split folding bench seat which comes standard across the Passat lineup; this handy feature is not available on the base Honda Accord trim.
  • In the midsize sedan segment, every cubic foot of cargo volume counts; that's why the slightly more capacious cargo hold in the Passat is much more appealing than that of its Honda brethren.
