2019 Nissan Altima vs. 2019 Honda Accord

A reliable midsize sedan can make all the difference when commuting on Grosse Pointe roads. But if you’re still searching for your next vehicle, you may find yourself debating between the Nissan Altima vs. Honda Accord. In this Nissan vs. Honda comparison, you can determine which model comes out on top in terms of interior space, fuel economy, and safety features.

Interior Room

At a glance, the interior room of Altima and Accord may seem pretty similar because both vehicles offer 5-passenger seating, but it’s the Nissan Altima that has more rooms for passengers to stretch and get comfortable. As you’ll see, this includes more legroom and shoulder room that are sure to make longer drives out of St. Clair Shores that much more relaxing. See how each sedan’s measurements match up in the base trim levels:

2019 Nissan Altima S

  • Front Legroom: 44.1 inches
  • Front Shoulder Room: 58.2 inches
  • Rear Shoulder Room: 57.1 inches

2019 Honda Accord LX

  • Front Legroom: 42.3 inches
  • Front Shoulder Room: 58.3 inches
  • Rear Shoulder Room: 56.5 inches

Fuel Economy and Performance

Many Sterling Heights drivers turn to midsize sedans for a reliable fuel economy and the Nissan Altima proves to not only offer an outstanding EPA estimated MPG rating but also performance specs that rival and even outdo those offered in the Honda Accord. Check out the fuel efficiency and engine specs you can expect in the base trim levels of the Altima and Accord:

2019 Nissan Altima S

  • 28/39 city/highway mpg
  • 2.5L four-cylinder engine
  • 2-speed CVT transmission
  • 16.2-gallon fuel tank capacity

2019 Honda Accord LX

  • 30/38 city/highway mpg
  • 1.5L four-cylinder engine
  • 2-speed CVT transmission
  • 14.8-gallon fuel tank capacity

Despite the fact that both models offer the same 2-speed CVT transmission, those who opt for the  2019 Honda Accord can also upgrade to 10-speed automatic transmission or 6-speed manual transmission option for even more efficiency behind the wheel.

Safety Features

When comparing the Nissan Altima vs. Honda Accord, you’ll see that both models feature some of the latest and most popular safety and driver assistance features to keep you more alert and protected on the road. These features include:

  • Rearview Monitor
  • Intelligent Forward Collision Warning
  • Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Available Blind Spot Warning

Drivers drawn to the Nissan Altima will also find that the advanced Intelligent Driver Alertness does not come standard on the Honda Accord. This added system tracks vehicle driving conditions and driving behavior and will sound an audio alert if it senses driver drowsiness urging them to take a break.
