2019 Nissan Altima Vs. 2019 Honda Accord

Red 2019 Nissan Altima parked in front of some mountains at dawn and a blue 2018 Honda Accord parked in front of a modern west coast home, separated by a diagonal line and "VS" logo.

Boasting impressive class-exclusive features such as Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, Nissan Intelligent Mobility, and the world’s first VC-Turbo engine, the 2019 Nissan Altima is a fearsome member of the mid-size sedan segment (fearsome to competitors… wondrous for us consumers).

The most fuel-efficient all-wheel drive sedan in its class, the 2019 Nissan Altima comes loaded with a plethora of standard technology, handles like butter, and keeps inhabitants comfortable in its roomy interior. The 2019 Honda Accord, however, is a popular mid-size sedan as well. How does it compare to the 2019 Altima?

Intelligent Performance

Though the 2019 Honda Accord has a slightly lower MSRP, the 2019 Nissan Altima comes with a few important gizmos that the Accord neglects. One of these is the newly available (and world’s first) VC-Turbo engine. This advanced powerplant adjusts its compression ratio based on the current driving situation in order to optimize both power and fuel-efficiency. This is one way that driving a 2019 Altima is a step into the world of tomorrow.

Keeping with the intelligent performance theme, the 2019 Nissan Altima offers Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, which is not available on the 2019 Accord. This system monitors road conditions and adjusts the power ratio among the wheels accordingly. This is yet another way to optimize fuel-efficiency and performance, keeping traction at its peak.

Welcoming Interior

The 2019 Nissan Altima provides more front legroom than the 2019 Honda Accord inside its roomy interior, allowing inhabitants to stretch out.

And not only will you and your passengers be comfortable; you’ll be entertained. Apple CarPlay is standard in the 2019 Altima, while you’ll be paying extra for that vaunted system in the 2019 Accord. The 2019 Altima is also the only sedan in its segment to include USB Type-C outlets.

Award-Winning Safety

The 2019 Nissan Altima also boasts safety features not offered on the 2019 Honda Accord. These include:

  • Intelligent Forward Collision Warning
  • Rear Automatic Braking
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System with Easy-Fill Tire Alert

Features such as these helped the 2019 Nissan Altima, when equipped with low-beam headlights, to achieve the distinction of being a 2019 IIHS Top Safety Pick.
