2021 Nissan Altima vs. 2021 Honda Civic

When you're looking for a dependable midsize sedan to get around you want something efficient and sporty! Both the Nissan Altima and the Honda Accord are great options, providing a variety of safety features, the latest technology, and style to boot. But which one is the best option for you?


Check out this comparison of the 2021 Nissan Altima vs. the 2021 Honda Accord, courtesy of the team at Maus Nissan.



Enjoy a comfortable, stylish commute in the spacious Nissan Altima cabin where you will have 43.8 inches of front legroom to relax! The standard 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat with lumbar support adds to the comfort, while the classic flat-bottom leather-wrapped steering wheel add to the style. Cloth seats are standard, but leather seats and Sport Cloth with contrast stitching are also available. Need trunk space? No problem! Just flex your space with the 60/40-split rear seats.


The Honda Accord is certainly a looker, but it lacks the exciting interior refinement and sportiness of the Altima. Not to mention, it falls short on space and has just 42.3 inches of front legroom. Sport cloth is not an available option, and the steering wheel doesn't have the same sporty appearance. Power adjustable seats are available, but not as a standard feature.



While the Altima comes standard with an impressive 2.5L engine and 188- hp, everyone is talking about its available, ground-breaking VC-Turbo (variable compression) engine that adjusts its compression ratio for more power or fuel efficiency depending on the situation.


Want more?? The new offers an available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive that continuously monitors road conditions and can adjust the ratio of power between the front and rear wheels to give you the best possible traction in inclement weather.


While the Honda Accord offers a standard 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that delivers 192-hp, the available power and performance doesn't even come close to the Altima. The Honda Accord does not offer a VC-Turbo engine and is only available in front-wheel drive.



The Nissan Altima upgraded its audio and entertainment systems to include a NissanConnect® 8-inch touchscreen display as well as a 7-inch advanced drive-assist display. Other impressive features include:

·       Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant

·       Apple CarPlay®

·       Android Auto™

·       Voice Recognition

·       Bose® Premium Audio System (complete with nine speakers)

The Accord's interior has intuitive technology and functionality through features such as wireless smartphone integration, an 8-inch touchscreen audio system, and multi-angle review camera.


Safety Features

Drive with confidence using Altima's standard driver-assist features that include:

·       Intelligent Forward Collision Warning with Pedestrian Detection

·       Tire Pressure Monitoring System

·       Rear Cross-Traffic Alert

·       Blind Spot Warning

·       Rear Automatic Braking

·       Lane Departure Warning

While most of the same safety features are available in the Honda Accord, the Tire Pressure Monitoring system and Intelligent Forward Collision Warning are unavailable.
