While the Honda Civic might have the biggest lineup on the overall Honda lineup, the Honda Accord has three models of its own. The most popular of the three would probably be the Accord Sedan, as a midsize 4-door car has a wider reach than a hybrid or a 2-door coupe. But there are a ton of midsize sedans on the market, so we thought we’d see how the Accord Sedan measures up to one of its biggest competitors by pitting the 2017 Honda Accord Sedan vs 2017 Nissan Altima.
Advantages of the 2017 Honda Accord Sedan
With a glance up above you can see that each vehicle has its own advantages, and that the two vehicles are quite comparable to one another. We thought we’d work our way down the table from the top to give you a better idea of how the two vehicles measure up to one another, starting with horsepower. A lot of different specifications go into a how a vehicle performs, but horsepower is without a doubt the most important and well-known. In this comparison, the Accord Sedan offers 6 horsepower more than the Altima. 6 horses would barely be noticeable in a side-by-side comparison, which is just one of the reasons these two vehicles are so similar.
Another reason is the second row, where the Honda Accord Sedan utilizes 0.4 extra litres of fuel every 100 kilometres driven. That means in the long run the Altima will save you some change at the gas pump, but with such a small advantage it won’t be a whole lot of money. The Accord Sedan however does pull ahead of the Altima in terms of space, as it offers an extra 1.7 cubic feet of space in the cabin for you and your passengers to stretch out and get comfortable. Furthermore, it offers an extra 0.4 cu. Ft. of space in its trunk.
