Roomy sedans with ample safety and engaging performance aren't as common as they used to be. In a world of SUVs and crossovers, there are still a few cars which provide a worthwhile, practical experience. Two of the chief contenders would be the Honda Accord vs. the Nissan Maxima. You may have seen these models perusing the streets of Stroudsburg, East Stroudsburg, Jim Thorpe, Easton, and Bethlehem. Their striking exterior designs are just one of many standout features.

At Ray Price Honda, we've pitted the Accord side-by-side with the Maxima so you can determine the right fit for yourself.

Accord vs Maxima: Configurability

You likely have some specific wants for your next sedan. Maybe it's a certain infotainment feature or the inclusion of a particular styling trait. The easiest way to land your ideal model is by configuring it to your heart's desire; this is something the 2021 Honda Accord makes much easier than the Nissan Maxima.

There are nine Honda Accord trims in total. Five of them are non-hybrid trims: LX, Sport, Sport Special Edition, EX-L, and Touring. The other four trims incorporate the hybrid engine: Hybrid, Hybrid EX, Hybrid EX-L, Hybrid Touring. No matter what, though, each trim delivers its own unique personality.

The Maxima trim list is relatively puny. The options are the standard SV, the SR, the Platinum and, for 2021, the 40th Anniversary Edition.

Accord vs Maxima: Large Gap in Fuel Economy

If efficiency is high on your priority list, the 2021 Honda Accord is going to effortlessly pull away from the Nissan Maxima. Nissan only equips the Maxima with a single V6 engine in all trim levels. Honda is more diverse, giving you the ability to fit your Accord with either a hybrid engine or a few non-hybrid options.

So, for the 2021 Maxima, the most fuel economy you can expect measures at an EPA-estimated 20 city/30 highway MPG. As you might expect, the 2021 Accord Hybrid far exceeds this total. The Accord, in either Hybrid, Hybrid EX, or Hybrid EX-L trims, returns an EPA-estimated 48 city/48 highway MPG.1

You don't need to go the hybrid route to enjoy superior efficiency to the Maxima, either. In the LX and EX-L trims, the 2021 Accord returns an EPA-estimated 30 city/38 highway MPG1.

2021 Honda Accord Outpaces Nissan Maxima

The configurability of the Honda Accord along with the vastly superior efficiency gives it the nod over the Nissan Maxima for 2021. All of these Accord trims means you have a decision to make, too. If you come by Ray Price Honda, you can test each trim around the streets of Stroudsburg, East Stroudsburg, Jim Thorpe, Easton, and Bethlehem.

130 city/38 highway/33 combined mpg rating for LX and EX-L trims. 48 city/48 highway/48 combined mpg rating for Hybrid, Hybrid EX and Hybrid EX-L trims. Based on 2021 EPA mileage ratings. Use for comparison purposes only. Your mileage will vary depending on how you drive and maintain your vehicle, driving conditions, battery-pack age/condition (hybrid trims) and other factors.
