    Default Accord 2005 or Camry 2005???!!!

    Asalam-ALaikum! guyz i'm in a fix these days as it's hard to choose between these two cars! in the budget duties will be cut from 161% to 119% on these cars, resulting in significant price decrease! can anyone advise me as to which car i should buy, accord or camry? what will be the price of accord/camry after duty deduction from 161 to 119%. Although i'm a honda freak but camry has got more features than accord! and camry is huge!!!! pakistani cars won't last long so we'll make a long term investment and use one of these cars for a good 7-8year period. and is the latest accord in pakistan available in biege interior,with sunroof and all the features??

    Camry does look bigger..but check this out

    Camry Accord
    Length 189.2 in. 189.5 in.
    Width 70.7 in. 71.5 in.
    Height 58.7 in. 57.1 in.
    Wheel Base 107.1 in. 107.9 in.

    Interior Camry Accord
    Front Headroom 39.2 in. 40.4 in.
    Rear Headroom 38.4 in. 38.5 in.
    Front Hip Room 54.4 in. 54.6 in.
    Rear Hip Room 54.1 in. 53.5 in.
    Front Leg Room 41.6 in. 42.6 in.
    Rear Leg Room 37.8 in. 36.8 in.
    Max Luggage 16.7 cu.ft 14 cu.ft.

    Both are great cars, Toyotas tend to retain better resale value than Hondas.

    Again as per my previous reply:

    The word out in the market is the following:

    Camry should come down to 26-27 laks. However its worth noting that Honda has ordered 50 Accords for which they will open sales from June 1, 2005. Price similar or exactly to Camry. Further to be noted, AUDI will be starting from 1st of Septemeber in Pakistan and they will introduce the A4 2.0 with a similar price tag. So, I suggest and wait till the new budget comes. My sources tell me the budget would come down to 119% (total package).

    If i had a choice between the three cars i mentioned above, I would take a European brand any day! But i suppose that depends on taste also!

    If you want to go for a Asian Brand, I suggest the Accord. It has a more prestigious value than the camry. Plus there are too many Camry's already out there. You want to rather have a car that not a lot of people drive!

    26-27 is not that big of a difference..considering the duty package is lowered around 40%. If the you want to drive a car that not a lot of people drive..you may also want to check out the Uno

    My views on Accord and Camry are that they are the same thing. Camrys I have seen has better reliabitlity and accord has better looks. And geko, I don't think that there are a lot of camrys in pakistan.

    Camry is better value for money ans compared to accord, this new model of accord has sporter edge, look more sports like ot luxury saloon, camry looks bigger and have more laxury.

    ok man here is my view

    if you are expecting thousands and thousands of Boring but reliable miles then go for CAMRY

    if you want a sporty and a fun to drive car with AXE EFFECT then go for ACCORD
