Honda vs. Toyota

Affordability and dependability are common words used to describe both the Japanese Toyota and Honda brands, which is why used versions of these brands are all the more appealing. Both automakers are competitive in terms of:

  • Pricing
  • Safety
  • Reliability
  • Fuel economy ratings


Honda and Toyota share quite a few features and perks, including:

  • Basic warranty coverage of three years or 36,000 miles, and powertrain warranty coverage of five years or 60,000 miles
  • Options in high-volume classes, like compact and midsize sedans, SUVs of all sizes, and minivans
  • Two midsize sedans in their lineups: the Honda Accord and Accord Hybrid, and the Toyota Camry and Camry Hybrid
  • A single subcompact crossover SUV entrant: the Honda HR-V and the all-new Toyota CH-R
  • One minivan each: the Honda Odyssey and the Toyota Sienna
  • High marks for reliability in J.D. Power & Associates Vehicle Dependability studies
  • A variety of advanced safety technologies


Despite their commonalities, there are some differences to consider if you’re deciding between the Honda and Toyota brands:

  • Honda has just two small car options, whereas Toyota has seven choices.
  • Toyota has both the Toyota RAV4 and the RAV4 Hybrid, while Honda has just the Honda CR-V.
  • The Honda Pilot is the lone SUV in the automaker’s lineup, but Toyota has the Toyota Highlander and Highlander Hybrid, as well as the Toyota 4Runner (one of few truck-based SUVs on the market).
  • Toyota boasts many more hybrid choices than Honda, particularly as you come across larger models in the lineup.
  • Honda boasts a focus on sporty styling and performance, while Toyota aims for a broad appeal.
  • Toyota has an edge when it comes to length of ownership.
