It’s time to upgrade your sedan, but which car is right for you? With so many choices on the market, Keating Honda is here to ensure that finding your next car is incredibly easy. Today we’ll be looking at the 2018 Accord and 2018 Altima. The Accord takes the lead out of the gate with its 1.5L VTEC Turbo 4 cylinder base engine. Accord delivers 192 horsepower compared to only 179 base horsepower for the Altima. The 2018 Accord also gets better base mileage with an EPA estimated 30 MPG city and 38 MPG highway.
Let’s dig into the interior specs of the 2018 Honda Accord and the 2018 Nissan Altima. We like the Altima’s innovative in-dashboard navigation that gives you direct turn by turn directions. However, when you do the math on these vehicles’ interior dimensions, the Accord comes out ahead. Accord has 16.7 cubic feet of cargo volume while the Altima only has 15.4. Similarly, Accord has significantly larger passenger volume as well.
The Accord’s front and rear bumper have benefited from a redesign and styling changes this year. The Accord now has a lower oblong profile, giving it a sleek appearance. The Altima also stands out with its contoured body design and signature grille. When you compare the driver assistance features, we think the Accord comes out on top. Altima can be equipped with available cruise control, blind spot warning, and rear cross traffic alert. In contrast, the 2018 Accord sports standard features like collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, and more. The difference is clear; only Honda can put that much value into a single sedan.
