Now that the 2015 Honda Accord has made its way into our showrooms, we think that it’s about time we review it alongside some of the competition. Although it does seem a bit unfair to put a vehicle like the 2015 Nissan Altima into competition with the Accord, considering all that the Accord is capable of. Nonetheless, we’re here to show you the differences between these two sedans and give you an idea of which might be better for you.
What’s the Difference Between Two Mid-Size Sedans?
We’ve gotten quite a few drivers asking us just what the difference is between two mid-size sedans, and while we can see that there are certainly similarities in the Altima and the Accord, there are quite a few differences as well.
Here are three that we think are worth your attention:
- Features: Honda is redefining the idea of “standard features,” and they have been giving drivers like you access to Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, a rearview camera system, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display, and more. The Altima makes features like these available, but you’d have to upgrade it to be on par with the entry-level Accord LX.
- Safety: Honda has a reputation for safety that goes back decades, and that’s why we’re proud to say that the 2015 Accord features second-row head restraints as standard, while the Altima doesn’t have them available. That’s in addition to the Accord’s Five-Star NHTSA Overall Safety Rating.
- Spacious interior: The 2015 Accord has one of the most spacious interiors of any mid-size sedan, outdoing the Altima on second-row head-, hip-, and leg-room as well as overall passenger volume. It’s easy to stretch out and get comfortable in an Accord.
