2019 Camry Hybrid SE or 2019 Honda Accord Touring 1.5 CVT

Hello Rfd members. I am getting the following deals on these two vehicles. Although one is a hybrid and one is not, I just wanted your views as to what I should pick. I am newly married and do mostly city driving. My drive to work is 20kms one way:

2019 Camry Hybrid SE 4 year lease:
- $485 taxes in Per month
- 20k kms
- requires a $5500 deposit to reduce the gigantic interest. Deposit is refunded at the end of 4 years

2019 Accord Touring 1.5 cvt 4 year lease:
- $450 taxes in
- 20k kms

Should I bite or wait? I am not in rush

Does residual value matter? Will you consider buying out after 4 years?
If not, are you planning to get any lease guard coverage?

No residual value doesn't matter. I think the residual value of both are around the same. I feel that if I go with the Hybrid i might end up keeping it

If you do mainly city driving get the Hybrid, you'll get way better fuel economy vs the turbo. You may want to add in the fuel savings into your calculation to give you a more accurate view in terms of finances.

op if it's my money I would lean towards the Camry, since you do mostly city driving the hybrid makes sense.

That said, the best way to know for sure is probably to test drive both vehicles.

I have a 2019 Camry Hybrid SE, great car. Fuel economy is improving each fill, and has good acceleration. One thing I don't like is the car didn't get Toyota safety sense 2.0 so no lane tracing assist.

I took the hybrid accord out for a spin when I was shopping and it was gutless compared to the Camry.

Paying $380/month all in for a 20k/year fourty month lease. Also did the $5500 deposit to buy down the lease rate.

How did you get the payments down to 380?? They are not budging at my end. 485 per month with 5500 deposit for 48 month lease

I purchased in Dec with delivery beginning of jan. Residuals have changed since then. Also negotiated hard on the purchase price. I'm also in AB, so no idea what province you are in.

I would go with the Camry Hybrid as well since you mostly do city driving, it makes a lot of sense. You also said you might keep the hybrid after the lease is over, so in that case residual value is good to look at before leasing..

In your situation I would go with the Camry Hybrid. Plus I think the newer Camrys look way better than the newer Accords.
