Altima vs. Accord: Performance

The 2021 Nissan Altima offers Nashville drivers a choice between two exceptional engines, including:

  • Turbocharged 2.0L Four-Cylinder: Makes up to 248 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque.

The Honda Accord also offers the choice between a standard four-cylinder and an available turbocharged alternative, but unlike the Altima it doesn’t offer the available all-weather, all-terrain traction of all-wheel drive (AWD).

Altima vs. Accord: Features and Safety

The team at Car and Driver lauded the 2021 Nissan Altima for offering, “very comfortable accommodations and a roster of popular driver assists and features.” Like the Honda Accord, it provides features ranging from Heated Seats to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but it significantly pulls ahead when you turn to safety technology.

Of the two, only the Nissan Altima offers:

  • Available Class-Exclusive Intelligent Around View® Monitor: Provides a 360-degree bird’s-eye view for easier and safer maneuvering.
  • Intelligent Driver Alertness: Tracks signs of driver awareness and provides an alert when you need to take a break.
