What makes one new car better than any other? When looking at the new 2018 Nissan Altima and its closest competitors, there are many factors, such as pricing, fuel efficiency, technology and more, and you'll quickly see you've made the right choice. After exploring these quick comparisons, which stack the new 2018 Altima up against similar editions of the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, visit our Hickory, NC Nissan dealership serving Newton, Statesville, Gastonia, Morganton, Lincolnton and Lake Norman today for a test drive.

Nissan Altima vs Honda Accord

  • One of the most important factors when shopping for a car here in Hickory is affordability. The new 2018 Altima comes in at a lower starting price than the Accord, so if your budget is a priority, the Nissan sedan will work better for your travels around the Newton and Statesville areas.
  • An available 3.5-liter V-6 is a great option for the Altima if you're willing to sacrifice a few mpgs for the thrilling 270-horsepower performance. A turbocharged four-cylinder is offered with the Accord, but you won't have the same level of performance as the Altima with that setup.
  • With seven available trim levels, the Altima allows for more variety when deciding what kinds of features you want to bundle together in your sedan. The Accord is available in only five trims, which often means you'll be spending more to get the full grouping of options you might want.
  • Comfort is key in any kind of vehicle, and the Altima bests the Accord in both front legroom and headroom, giving you and your shotgun passenger more space to stretch out in.

Nissan Altima vs Toyota Camry

  • Not only is the Altima more affordable than any Camry you'll find in the Gastonia, Lincolnton, Lake Norman and Morganton areas, but Nissan includes a 3-year or 36,000-mile roadside assistance program that isn't offered with the Toyota sedan.
  • The Altima once again wins in the front headroom and legroom categories, this time besting the Camry by even more than its advantage over the Accord. If you're a taller driver, you'll definitely appreciate having more space up front.
  • Nissan's advanced forward collision warning uses radar sensors to monitor the velocity of and distance from the two vehicles in front of you to better prepare you for braking in the Altima. While the Camry has some driver assistance features like forward collision warning, it's not nearly as advanced as the system offered in the Altima.
  • The standard easy fill tire alert system in the Altima helps you to monitor your tires and fill up with air far easier than just relying on the feel of your tires in other sedans like the Camry, which does not have a similar system even available.
