In the automotive world, there’s no shortage of archrivals-two major players that battle for supremacy, day in and day out. Whether it’s for sales titles, track times, or magazine comparison-test victories, being number one is an automaker’s ultimate goal. From Camaro versus Mustang and Evo versus Sti to S-Class versus 7 Series and Supra versus Z, these combats of style, power, and agility have defined competitors throughout history. Today, no clash is more significant than…Accord versus Camry? You bet.Over the past decade, the Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry have waged war over “bestseller” bragging rights, with each moving around 400,000 per year. Camry has taken the title nine of the last 10 years, but Accord has always been right on its tail, even grabbing the title in 2001. For greater perspective, since Toyota introduced the Camry to the U.S. in 1983, it has sold nearly seven million copies; the Accord, which bowed in 1976, has found almost 10 million buyers.
