The difference gets even more noticeable with the highest trim with the Altima at 29 MPG and the Accord at 26 MPG combined.


Since both the Nissan Altima and Honda Accord are exceptional sedans, it’s the little things that make the difference. For example, the Altima base model includes a light in the glovebox and a map light for both front and rear passengers. The Accord doesn’t have a glovebox light and only has a map light in the front. Fill up at the gas station less often with the Nissan which has a fuel tank of 16.2 gallons while the Honda is at 14.8 gallons. Bring along more stuff in the Altima with a split-folding rear seat while the Acord features a full bench. Start your Nissan from anywhere with a remote start which is standard even on the base trim.


Stretch out in the 2019 Nissan Altima with a front legroom of 44.1 inches compared to 42.3 inches for the Honda. Find the perfect position in both models as the driver with the eight-way power seat for the Altima while the Accord offers a six-way manual seat. At the highest trim levels, both models include heated front seats for premium comfort.


Modern technology adds so much to the driving experience and the Altima delivers. With the base model, you have a six-speaker audio system as compared to a four-speaker system with the Honda. Voice recognition is standard with this trim while it isn’t even available with the base Honda Accord. Expand your media choices with satellite radio on the base trim while the Accord only offers the system on higher trims.

Both the 2019 Nissan Altima and 2019 Honda Accord have a lot to offer buyers and maintain a similar base price. They both come with a lot of modern amenities you’re sure to appreciate for your daily travels. However, the 2019 Nissan Altima offers more features on the base trim if you don’t want to pay extra for the higher models.
