Default what car is "best"? Toyota camry vs Toyota corolla vs Honda accord?

I seriously barely know anything about cars? This will be my first car (15 now, but I am thinking ahead as I will be getting a car soon)

But I don't want to get an audi or anything super expensive, so I've decided to get either a toyota corolla or camry OR a honda accord - those are really the only cars I like, in terms of looks?

The mpg thing doesn't seem too bad either? I don't understand all the little "EX""EX-L" etc things? (in the honda anyway, but I think the camry and corolla have something similar to that as well)

Which is better? I don't need that much space since i won't be driving with others very often, maybe a friend or two every once in a while but yeah - after I get my license that is.

The cars I'm talking about are the new 2013 models, I am NOT talking about the accord hybrid plug-in, just the sedan! thanks.

Which is better for a teen? As for mileage, maybe speed? Please list the pros/ cons for each car? thanks - also please don't suggest getting a car that is cheaper - i wanted an audi/ mercedes but no doubt I will mess it up somehow and fixing it will be pricey

what are good mpg things? and speed things? like cylinder? or something i really have no clue!

I'm really leaning to the camry/ or honda ugh help

You have much to learn about cars. Only real driver and car lover would get older cars (except on some new cars) like before the 2000 and under.

I'll try and dumb it down for you.

They all come with over 30 miles per gallon. Great gas saver cars.

Camery means crown in angelic Japanese (kamuri).

I have drove it a few times. Its nice and feel great. Comes with touch screen dash for your music. They don't go very fast. They got a 2.2 to 2.5 L. It will take them over 8 second for 0-60. But they do have a v6. A little more kick for power.

Corolla (small crown in Latin) is a smaller version of Camry and Toyota crown (japan).

Its not spaces as the Camry but it does have some nice features. I haven't drove one yet so I don't know much in it. They come with 1.3 to 1.8 L. Talk about smaller version. They are slower then the camery.

Accord. Don't know why it got that name but those are nice and spaces. I have drove them a little. The speedometer, odo and dash are electronical. Looks like its from the future. They got 2.4 L (k24). One of the faster 4 cylinder. It can out run the Camry but not too much. Like the Camry. They also got a v6 for more kick.

Its all up to what you like.

Camry-spaces and fun for family

Corolla-small and just for friends

Accord-nice and fast for friends and family.

I wouldn't get any of them. They are new and ugly looking. I'm more of a older car person.

My first car is a 96 Honda civic. You can tune them up and make it look nice and fast. Easy to repair and upgrade unlike newer cars.

On newer cars you have to deal with electronics, alarms and codes if you mess with the wires.

The best car on the choices you gave for a teen would be the Toyota Corolla. It's a small little car with all the necessities needed (safe, great on gas, easy and not expensive to fix if something gets broken) for a teen plus little extras. Honestly it's the perfect first car for anyone.

Like how Honda has the different trim levels (EX, EX-L, etc.), Toyota has the same(L, LE, etc). These different trim levels tell you what options the car will come with standard. For example, the Corolla L will come with 15 inch steel wheels (with hubcaps) while the Corolla S will come with 16 inch alloy wheels. The higher the trim level, the more creature comforts you get standard.

The 2013 Honda Accord and the 2013 Toyota Camry are both great mid size sedans. Both cars offer a 4 cylinder engine (for fuel economy), a 6 cylinder engine (for performance), and a hybrid (for even better fuel economy) The 2013 Toyota Camry design has little changes from the 2012 model, while the 2013 Honda Accord is a fresh new design. Depending on the trim level, both offer touchscreen navigation with the ability to pair up to your smartphone. Both are available with leather interior. The Honda Accord's 4 cylinder engine makes more horsepower and torque over the Toyota Camry's 4 cylinder engine (the same can be said for the 6 cylinder engines also). To me, the 2013 Honda Accord looks so much better than the 2013 Toyota Camry.

I can only find one con with the Honda Accord (at least to me). If your not getting the six cylinder engine or can't drive stick, then you stuck with a CVT as your only transmission choice. A CVT (Continuously variable transmission) is a transmission that you usually find in hybrid cars, but I guess there is a push to use this transmission on newer non-hybrid cars for better fuel economy. A lot of other people wouldn't see this as a con thought.

Out of these three cars, I think that the 2013 Honda Accord would be the best car in general based on specs alone. The best car for a teen however would be the Toyota Corolla.

What about the Civic? By the way my friend has a Camry and gets 20 miles to the gallon from it all while looking like a soccermom.
