2017 Nissan Altima vs 2017 Hyundai Sonata

Mid-size sedans are one of the most popular vehicle segments in the U.S., loved by all types of drivers including couples, singles, students, commuters, and more. Mid-size sedans offer the whole package--performance, efficiency, and style. To highlight Nissan’s best selling sedan, the Altima, we’ve put together a comparison of the 2017 Nissan Altima vs 2017 Hyundai Sonata.

Head to head, both the Altima and the Sonata have a lot to offer but ultimately the Altima comes out on top. Although the Sonata is cheaper than the Altima, the higher price indicates that the Altima’s lineup offers more standard features on each trim. Both sedans offer great performance, but only the Altima offers a V6 engine--meaning only the Altima delivers thrilling horsepower. Finally, the Sonata offers slightly more passenger and cargo volume than the Altima does.
