The Toyota Camry and Honda Accord, the car world's Real Madrid vs Barcelona. No matter who you choose, there can only be one winner, and in the case of Thailand's D-segment sales in 2022 – it's the Camry.
Headlightmag.com's data points the Toyota Camry carved a clear lead (nearly double the volume) over its nearest rival, having sold 6,089 units over the Accord's 3,366 cars. This equates the Camry garnering 64.4% of the market share, with the Accord settling for 35.6% of it.
Thought both are good products in their own right, price factors can't be ignored too. The Camry is much more advantageous in this aspect, for it starts from THB 1,475,000 (~RM 189,000) for the petrol variant while the hybrid is priced from THB 1,659,000 (~RM 213,000).
Meanwhile, the Accord starts from THB 1,499,000 (~RM 193,000) for the base petrol EL, and tops out at THB 1,799,000 (~RM 231,000) for the e:HEV Tech range-topper.
Though Toyota has won this category last year, Honda aims to renew this fight for 2023 with the (possible) introduction of the all-new Accord. Lots of tech in that one – including Android Automotive integration just like Volvo's – and upgrades all around. A camouflaged unit has already been spotted testing there.
With humble beginnings collecting diecast models and spending hours virtually tuning dream cars on the computer, his love of cars has delightfully transformed into a career. Sanjay enjoys how the same passion for cars transcends boundaries and brings people together.
