2020 Nissan Altima vs Honda Accord

Nissan Altima

Sedans are perfect for commuters and adventurers alike. The 2020 Nissan Altima and the 2020 Honda Accord are similar with their powerful mechanical lineups, advanced entertainment systems, and class-exclusive safety features. But how can you know which one fits you better?

Our team at Nissan of Mobile has put together this vehicle comparison to help you and other shoppers in Mobile, Prichard, and Saraland answer that question with confidence. Read ahead to get started with an overview of these two capable sedans.

2020 Altima vs 2020 Accord: Overview

Nissan Altima Specs

As competitively talented sedans, the 2020 Nissan Altima and the 2020 Accord share a lot of features in common. Both have four doors, five seats, and standard infotainment centers. Plus, with more than 15 feet of maximum interior cargo room, both are capable of carting your pals around, as well as everyone's luggage.

You'll experience a bit more passenger room in the Altima, though, with its 43.8 inches of front-seat legroom, as compared to the Accord model's 42.3 inches.

The Altima offers seven different available trim levels: the S, SR, SR VC-Turbo™, SV, SL, Platinum, and the Platinum VC-Turbo™. The Accord offers only five trim levels: the LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, and Touring. Having several trim levels allows for plenty of customization options, so the Altima comes out on top once again here.

Performance Specifications

The 2020 Nissan Altima comes standard with a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine. This engine works closely with a continuously variable transmission and a front-wheel drivetrain. The 2020 Honda Accord has the latter two configurations in common with the Altima, but differs slightly in its engine. It comes standard with a smaller 1.5L 4-cylinder engine.

One area the Nissan Altima ultimately stands out against the Honda Accord, is in drivetrain. The Altima comes with an available all-wheel drive system. Over in the Accord an all-wheel drive system isn’t even offered, so you’re not going to have as much traction and stability control.

Altima vs Accord: Safety

Nissan Altima Safety Features

Both sedans have many impressive safety features in common, including tire pressure monitoring systems and remote anti-theft alarm systems.

On top of all the safety features the 2020 Altima shares with the 2020 Accord, it also comes with Predictive Forward Collision Warning. This Nissan Altima model’s standard Intelligent Forward Collision Warning system uses radar sensors to monitor not just the vehicle in front of you, but the vehicle in front of that one, too.

The Honda Accord also has a forward collision warning system as part of its Honda Sensing® feature, but its sensors don't reach quite as far as the ones in the Nissan Altima.
