Tough choice, we have 2 Toyotas at home and they've been great, but I know Honda owners love their cars, too.
I don't think there's a bad choice between the two, I just want to make the better choice if there is one. Otherwise, I suppose it comes down to price, and right now they're coming in about equal, which is odd since the Honda's MSRP is $2100 higher than Toyota! I think Toyota isn't very motivated, and that's pushing me towards the Honda. :)
Again, I'd be pretty happy with either.
The Blue tooth and backup camera are "handy." The camera is something you think you would never need but can't imagine life without it once you have it.
We bought at the right time since Honda is moving in the 2014's.
You definitely have a tough choice.
