2016 Honda Accord vs. 2016 Nissan Altima
Glendale and Milwaukee drivers who are looking for a sedan that looks great and performs fantastically, have all of that and more with the 2016 Honda Accord! Clean-cut lines frame a great list of features, including impressive engine options, terrific interior volume, and state of the art safety enhancements. It works just as wonderfully for solo drivers and couples as it does for small families, and when compared to competition such as the 2016 Nissan Altima, definitely shows why Honda is a leader in its class.
- 2016 Honda Accord – All of the 2016 Honda Accord trims have powerhouse engines that deliver terrific performance for a compact car. There’s a 278-hp 3.5L with 252 lb. ft. torque for the Touring and the V6, a 189-hp 2.4L with 182 lb. ft. torque for the Sport, and a 185-hp 2.4L with 181 lb. ft. torque for the LX, EX, and EX-L. With an Eco Assist™ System, Active Noise Cancellation™, and either six-speed transmission or CVT with Sport mode, these models readily take charge of the road and deftly handle all conditions.
- The 2016 Nissan Altima – The Altima, on the other hand, only has two engine options, either a 182-hp 2.5L with 180 lb.-ft. torque, or a 270-hp V6 with 251 lb.-ft. torque. Without the Eco and the noise cancellation systems, it stands more as just another cookie cutter model in its class, rather than one with stand-out features.
Space, comfort, and distinction define the 2016 Accord’s appeal over the 2016 Altima:
- 2016 Honda Accord: Lovely dimensions make the 2016 Honda Accord sedan, hybrid, or coupe such a perfect vehicle for human and pet passengers, and whatever gear and necessities are needed for errands and road trips. Front and rear shoulder room are 58.6” and 56.5”, and front and rear hip room are 55.6” and 54.7”, and cargo space is 15.5-15.8 cu. ft. Dual-zone climate control and ten-way power adjustable driver’s seat add to the coziness, while LED fog lights and integrated taillight bars increase visibility and complement the aesthetic design.
- 2016 Nissan Altima: There’s less comfort in the 2016 Nissan Altima, with 56.4” front and rear shoulder, and 54” and 52.1” front and rear hip room, and 15.4 cu. ft. cargo space. Driver seat settings are at eight-way positioning at the most, and the exterior lighting is not as streamlined or top-level.
Extensive Safety Technology
The Honda Sensing™ safety measures comprehensively covers where driver attention is crucial. Lane keeping assist and lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, road departure mitigation, forward collision warning, and collision mitigation braking, along with a multi-angle rearview camera, bring extra peace of mind to all occupants of the 2016 Accord. The Altima’s safety tools disappoint, mainly focusing on just collision warning and rearview monitoring.
