COTY 2020: Honda Accord vs Volkswagen Passat, which is your favourite D-segment sedan? 01

We love the Honda Accord for its regal character that befits the purpose of a D-segment sedan – to be comfortable and relaxing to drive. It’s also impressively equipped, with the full suite of ADAS that includes Low Speed Follow, the only car in its segment with this feature at the moment.

It’s powered by a 1.5-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that puts out 201 PS and 260 Nm of torque, mated to a CVT that powers the front wheels. 0-100 km/h is tested at 8.7 seconds.

The Volkswagen Passat on the hand, specifically the R-Line variant, boasts a duality in its character. This is largely due to the adaptive dampers (DCC); in comfort mode, it wafts along beautifully even on 19-inch wheels and in sport mode, it tightens up body movements in corners for added confidence.

Powering the Volkswagen Passat R-Line is a 2.0-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that pushes out 190 PS/320 Nm, channeled to the front wheels through a slick-shifting 7-speed dual-clutch transmission (DSG). 0-100 km/h sprint is tested at 8.1 seconds.

The Honda Accord won Ratings for the highest overall score. The Volkswagen Passat could’ve been a closer match if it were to be equipped with ADAS. But alas, the crown goes to Honda.
