Sedans are wonderful rides for college graduates, workers with daily commutes, or parents looking to downsize after their children flew the nest. A world of possibilities awaits you behind the wheel of a sedan, but which one is right for you?

Our team at Georgesville Nissan has a couple of sedans in mind for Columbus, Grove City, and Lincoln Village, OH, drivers: the 2021 Nissan Altima and Honda Accord. These two vehicles are very similar, but have some quirks and characteristics that set them apart. Which is the winner? Let's find out below.

Nissan Altima vs Honda Accord-Performance

When it comes to power, the 2021 Nissan Altima and Honda Accord are well-matched with their base engines. They provide peppy performances for those much-needed morning coffee runs or for drives to the local dog park with your Yorkie in tow.

However, you may be able to skip out on your morning cuppa joe with the Altima's available 2.0-liter Variable Compression Turbo (VC-Turbo™) engine. With this engine equipped, you can experience an energizing 248 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque!

The Honda Accord offers the same 273 lb-ft of torque with its highest trim.

Altima vs Accord-Safety

Driver, passenger, and precious cargo safety is a necessity when you're behind the wheel. Fortunately, both vehicles offer standard safety suites that are jampacked with intelligent features. Both sedans offer these or similar features:

  • Intelligent Forward Collision Warning
  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • High Beam Assist
  • Available Blind Spot Warning

If you plan to spend a lot of time on the highway, you may find the Nissan Altima to be your best option-this sedan offers these additional features:

  • Intelligent Driver Alertness: This system monitors your driving behaviors. When it notices a shift in your attention or reduced driving behaviors, it will tell you that it may be time to take a break and give your co-pilot a chance behind the wheel.
  • Available ProPILOT Assist: This feature is an advanced cruise control feature that can link up with your navigation system (when equipped with the Navi-link feature). It helps you navigate the ebb and flow of highway traffic while using cruise control.

The Honda Accord does offer an Adaptive Cruise Control feature; however, it doesn't offer a variant that helps you connect with your navigation system to better predict the roadway ahead.

Nissan Altima vs Honda Accord-Seating

You're going to find five comfortable seating appointments in both of these sedans. In fact, both offer standard cloth seats and available leather seating! However, if you're looking for a seat trim with some racing accents, the Altima offers available sport cloth seats-a seating trim the Honda goes without.

You can even keep cozy during the brisk winter months with available heated front seats in either vehicle. However, the Nissan will be able to keep your fingers warm, too, with its available heated steering wheel. Unfortunately, the Honda doesn't offer this additional comfort amenity.

Will You Be Driving the Nissan Altima or Honda Accord Home?

Thanks to its powerful engine configuration, additional driver-assistance features, and available comforts, our team at Georgesville Nissan believes the 2021 Nissan Altima is your right choice when compared to the Honda Accord.
