If you’re in the market for a midsize sedan, then it’s worth your time to consider the 2018 Nissan Altima and the 2018 Honda Accord. Between the two, though, you’ll find that the Altima:
- Has a fuel tank that holds 3 more gallons of gas
- Offers 2.7 more inches of front legroom
- Generates 18 more hp from its secondary 3.5L V6 engine
- Costs $310 less on the base MSRP and $170 less on the MSRP on the topmost trim
- Features a special Midnight Edition in the lineup for a dash of additional style and personality, with a black rear spoiler, black outside mirrors, and exclusive Midnight Edition black 18-inch alloy wheels
From the start, the 2018 Nissan Altima provides many of the features that you would expect on your sedan, while they’re either unavailable or cost more to have on the introductory 2018 Honda Accord. These include:
- 60/40-split folding rear seat
- Auxiliary audio input
- Siri Eyes Free voice-activated audio controls
- Six-speaker stereo (as compared with four speakers on the Accord)
- Intelligent Key doors
- Two LCD monitors in the front row (as compared with one on the Accord)
At the top of the lineup, you’ll get a heated steering wheel and a rear spoiler on the Altima, which isn’t standard on the Accord.
You can expect superior performance and heftier engines when you go with the 2018 Nissan Altima over the 2018 Honda Accord.
