Where can I find a list of ground clearances for family size cars?

Specifically, the 2013 Hyundai Sonata, 2013 Nissan Altima, 2012 Toyota Camry and 2013 Honda Accord.

Del H., Prescott, Ariz.

All four of these front-drive midsize sedans are within an inch of each other in ground clearance. The Sonata has 5.5 inches, the Altima 5.4, the Camry 6.1, and the Accord is 5.8 inches for four-cylinder models and 5.5 for V-6 models. These numbers are provided by the manufacturers.


Ground clearance is one of the many vital statistics that Cars.com provides for each model in its Research section. From the opening page, click on the Features & Specs button and then click on Specifications (it will ask you to choose a specific model). You will have to scroll deep into the data to find ground clearance.
