2018 Honda Accord versus 2018 Nissan Altima in Reading, MA

One of the more competitive classes in the automotive industry, the mid-size sedan segment boasts dynamic, option-heavy vehicles that deliver some serious power. This makes it all the more impressive for a vehicle to stand out as much as the 2018 Honda Accord with its powerful drive, modern interior, and refreshingly smart features. As an example of the vehicle's dominance in the class, take a look at the sedan's performance pitted against the 2018 Nissan Altima. At Honda Gallery we hope this will help our Reading, MA customers make the right decision when buying a new sedan.

Power and Performance

The 2018 Honda Accord's base turbocharged I-4 engine goes up against the Altima's standard I-4 engine and makes quite a statement to start this matchup.

  • The 2018 Honda Accord's 1.5-liter turbocharged engine offers an impressive 192 horsepower with 192 lb.-ft. of torque to deliver the power and traction you need for an engaging drive. The Altima's base engine only offers 179 horsepower and 192 lb.-ft. of torque, and at a much higher strain on its engine.
  • The Altima's continuously variable transmission (CVT) leaves something to be desired when compared with the 2018 Honda Accord's CVT. Further, the Altima only offers the one transmission, whereas the 2018 Honda Accord gives you more options with automatic, manual, and continuously variable transmissions.

Ultimately the 2018 Honda Accord's turbocharged engine and transmission options put it solidly in front of the Altima in terms of road performance. If you need a powerful sedan in the greater Boston area, opt for the 2018 Honda Accord.
