Nissan Altima vs. Honda Accord in Hickory, NC

The Honda Accord is one of the most popular midsized sedans out there, but you'll find the Altima is a far better overall value. With more comfort for your passengers, a better engine upgrade and overall cost, the Altima bests the Accord and presents you with an ideal commuter that's also spacious enough for delightful family driving. Take a look through the comparison below and see why the Altima is a far better choice than the new Accord.

  • The starting price of the new Altima is lower than the base level of the Accord. This is important if you're looking for the best overall deal, as well as when you decide on a higher trim with feature and engine upgrades, as those will be more cost effective with the Altima than if you were choosing a higher trim of the Accord.
  • While you can upgrade to a more powerful turbocharged four-cylinder with the new Accord, you won't find a powerful V-6 like you will with the Altima. That option means you can sacrifice a few mpgs for a thrilling sense of performance in a dynamic midsized sedan.

  • The Altima affords you more cargo space in the trunk, along with fold-down rear seats that create more room for all your stuff, when compared to the Camry. Any midsized sedan will lack the kind of cargo space found in a crossover or SUV, but making the most out of your trunk area is ideal.
  • Finally, the Altima comes with a generous three-year / 36,000-mile roadside assistance program. This isn't offered as a standard inclusion with the Camry, which means you'll have to spend more for that layer of protection and added confidence.
