The 2014 Honda Accord Sedan vs. the 2014 Nissan Altima

2014 Honda Accord Sedan (1)For almost forty years, the Honda Accord has been one of the most trusted nameplates in the United States. Constructed in Marysville, Ohio, the 2014 Accord Sedan continues to be a popular choice for drivers in the Raynham and Easton area. Why? The Accord matches world-class design with high-end performance, as well as with some of the market’s best available features. And when purchased from Silko Honda, it comes with SilkoCare, which includes 2 years/25,000 miles of complimentary maintenance, unlimited car washes, and a lifetime, nationwide powertrain warranty (a $1,399 value).

Despite its much higher starting price, the 2014 Altima misses out on some of the features that come standard on the Accord. It also has a smaller cabin, and lacks the fuel efficiency that has helped to propel the Accord to the front of the four-door class.

High-Class, for Less

One of the perks of owning a new Accord is the standard rearview camera. An added safety device, the camera displays what is behind the vehicle on a screen located in the center console. Despite a starting price of almost $8,000 more than the Accord, a rear-view camera is not available on the base-level Altima.

What else is different on the base-level models of these two sedans? The Accord is equipped with a 185 hp 2.4L engine, which affords it a strong EPA-estimated 36 mpg highway fuel economy. And though the Altima comes equipped with a tough 290 hp V6, it makes huge sacrifices in fuel economy — highway mpg drops to 26 mpg.* If you do need more power, the Accord is also available with its own 278-hp V6 engine.

As for cabin space, the passenger area in the Accord is a roomy 103 cubic feet, compared to the 96 cubic feet in the Altima.
