For many years, one of the fiercest competitors to the Honda Accord has certainly been the Nissan Altima. It hasn’t been around nearly as long as the Accord, which was introduced in 1976, 16 years prior to the Altima, but it has certainly been fierce competition in the years since. We thought we’d see how these two midsize sedans measure up to one another these days with a side-by-side comparison pitting the 2021 Honda Accord vs 2021 Nissan Altima. Check out all the details in the table below!
2021 Honda Accord LX
2021 Nissan Altima
|192 hp||Horsepower||188 hp|
|33 mpg*||Combined Fuel Efficiency||32 mpg|
|16.7 cu. ft.||Cargo Capacity||15.4 cu. ft.|
We highlighted a few of the most important specifications to take into consideration when shopping for vehicles like these two in the table up above, and it doesn’t take long to realize why the two sedans are such fierce competitors. They’re incredibly comparable to one another in terms of these aspects, thought it also quickly becomes evident that one sedan has a bit of a leg up in almost every category.
We started by looking at power in the first row, an area in which the 2021 Honda Accord offers 4 hp more than its competitor. That’s hardly a noticeable difference when it comes to power. Neither is the different in fuel economy, highlighted in the second row. A single mile per gallon isn’t going to make a huge difference, but it will certainly lead to some saved pocket change at the pump over time.
The biggest difference between the two sedans is trunk space, where the Accord’s trunk can accommodate a full 1.3 cubic feet of extra space. However, both sedans offer seating for up to 5 total.
