Modern shoppers expect a lot from their cars, and two of the top-selling sedans, the Honda Accord and the Nissan Altima, deliver on these promises. That said, there are a few differences between them that may influence your decision.

Drivers in East Stroudsburg, Stroudsburg, Bethlehem, Easton and Jim Thorpe can explore the differences between the Accord vs. Altima, two impressive sedans, with our side-by-side comparison.

Honda Accord vs Nissan Altima: Design & Style

In a class of lookalikes, the new Honda Accord stands out. Between its subtle nod to European styling and its smooth, sleek proportions, the Accord has the aesthetic appeal of an upscale vehicle. A vaguely sportback shape and highly stylized headlights complete the package for a sharp, attention-grabbing look.

Inside, the Accord redesigned its proportions to improve passenger space, and there's plenty of natural light, a dark, elegant palette and subtle touches of wood for a pleasing atmosphere. In fact, it offers an incredible 16.7 cubic feet of cargo room, you can pack in all your groceries, luggage, camping gear, and more without having to leave anything behind.

Unfortunately, the Nissan Altima redesigned its exterior to fit in with the masses. There's nothing unappealing about its design, but it doesn't offer anything remarkable either. A couple of aesthetic touches, like smoked headlight covers, are the extent of its styling.

Inside, the Altima is conventional, but boring. There's no clutter, but also no elegance, and its design is virtually identical in every trim level. Despite its lackluster interior styling, it only offers 15.4 cubic feet of cargo room-over one cubic foot less than the Honda Accord.

Accord vs Altima: Interior Comfort & Convenience

The Honda Accord easily accommodates all passengers, as does the Nissan Altima. Both sedans feature plenty of interior space to stretch out in, so cramping legs and aching backs will no longer be an issue.

 However, the new Accord further comforts its riders with the Dual-zone Automatic Climate Control System. With this standard feature, the driver and front passenger will be able to customize the temperature settings to their liking. To get a similar feature in the 2018 Altima, you'll need to upgrade to a higher trim level. 

With the 12-way, power-adjustable driver's seat, you'll be in a lap of luxury and comfort. It also comes with 4-way power lumbar support, so you'll feel energized and relaxed whenever you exit the Accord. As for the Nissan Altima, it also comes with an upgradable driver's seat-an 8-way power-adjustable seat with power lumbar support-but it doesn't offer the same all-encompassing comfort and customization as the Honda Accord seat.

Honda Accord vs Nissan Altima: Technology

The new Honda Accord comes with a long list of standard features, including Bluetooth® connectivity, Pandora® compatibility, a 7-inch WVGA screen, and available Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. The Nissan Altima, too, offers a 5-inch color monitor, Bluetooth® connectivity, Siri® Eyes Free, and available Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. Where the true difference between these sedans lie, though, is with their advanced safety technology.

The Honda Accord comes with Honda Sensing®, a standard suite of driver-assisting systems, which includes:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™, for responsive braking when it detects an otherwise unavoidable collision.
  • Road Departure Mitigation System, for warning you of unintentional lane drift.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control, for maintaining a set distance between you and the car ahead.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System, for guiding you back to the lane when you stray from the center of a lane without signaling.
  • Traffic Sign Recognition, for notifying you of speed limit signs with a visual icon.

With all of this intuitive safety technology, the Honda Accord promises an alert and aware drive, no matter where you go. As for the Nissan Altima, it does offer some standard safety features, such as Intelligent Forward Collision Warning and Automatic Emergency Braking. However, the Altima and its safety features are not as comprehensive, intelligent, or extensive as Honda Sensing®.
