The Honda Accord and the 2020 Nissan Altima are both equipped to handle your everyday commutes. Nevertheless, the Accord makes for a more enjoyable and comfortable ride than the Altima, thanks to its powerful engines, cozy cabin and advanced technologies.
Both cars give you the choice between different engines so you can select your ideal amount of power. The Honda Accord provides a more powerful standard and available engine than the Nissan Altima. The Accord comes standard with a 1.5-liter engine that puts out 192 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque. Its available 2.0-liter engine reaches 252 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque, making for an exciting ride.
The Honda Accord has a more spacious interior than the Nissan Altima, allowing you to be more comfortable on drives. The Accord offers 55 inches of hip room and 40.4 inches of legroom in the rear row so that everyone in your car can spread out and relax. The Accord also has more room overall for your loved ones with up to 105.6 cubic feet of passenger volume. Furthermore, you can bring more sports equipment and groceries on the ride, thanks to the car’s larger amount of cargo volume.
While both the Honda Accord and Nissan Altima come equipped with a range of technologies, the Accord offers many practical features that the Altima does not. For instance, the Accord comes standard with the Road Departure Mitigation System and Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow to help you have peace of mind on drives. There’s also the standard dual-zone automatic climate control system, which works to keep the cabin of the Accord at a cozy temperature. A similar feature is offered on the Altima, but it’s not available on the lower trims.
