2019 Honda Accord Vs 2019 Nissan Altima

2019 Honda Accord Vs 2019 Nissan Altima
If you’re in the market for a reliable sedan, you’ve no-doubt seen the impressive capabilities and features that drivers love about the Honda Accord. You may have also encountered the Nissan Altima in your search, as both cars stand out in their class for a number of good reasons. While both vehicles are understandably popular for their comfortable interiors, smooth rides, convenience, and efficiency, it may be hard to determine which one is right for you. Let’s park these two in-demand sedans side by side and compare a few key qualities.

Interior Comfort and Quality

The Accord and The Altima seat five each, but passengers will notice some differences in the cars’ cabins. Drivers have spoken highly of the Accord’s comfortable seating and abundance of legroom, and the interior is lined with smooth, soft materials. While the Altima’s interior materials haven’t garnered the same praise, it does present supportive seating for long drives. It’s worth noting that you can upgrade to leather upholstery in the upper trims of either vehicle. The Accord also offers more cargo space in its trunk, and when you’ve got a full cart of groceries to unload, every foot counts.


The Accord flexes more muscle than the Altima, touting higher horsepower and torque than the Nissan’s powertrain can produce. While the Altima’s ride is not unpleasant by any means, the Accord complements its composed ride with a variety of driving modes to customize your handling. It takes twists and turns with poise, and well-tuned suspension handles bumps in the road without complaint.

Both cars offer sport-focused trims for more athletic cruising. The Altima’s SR trim comes with special suspension and paddle shifters, and the Accord’s Sport trim offers sport pedals, a rear spoiler, an available turbocharged engine, and six-speed manual transmission.

Fuel Efficiency

Both vehicles demonstrate disciplined gas mileage in town and on the highway, scoring high within their competitive class. However, the Accord pulls ahead with an optional hybrid variation, utilizing two electric motors along with its 212-horsepower 4-cylinder engine to conserve fuel while still delivering plenty of power to accelerate, merge, and maneuver.
