Here’s a brief overview of the advantages the new Accord offers in comparison to its Nissan competitor.

  • The Accord EX-L and Touring models come with standard collision warning systems. The new Altima isn’t equipped with this high-tech safety technology.

  • The EPA considers the new Accord a “Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle,” while the new Altima is only a “Super Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle.”
  • Consumer Reports, Motor Trend, Road & Track, and Car and Driver all assessed that the 2015 Accord stops more responsively than the 2015 Altima.
  • Front and rear gas-charged shocks take handling up a notch in the new Accord. The Altima’s shocks aren’t gas-charged.
  • The Accord’s 15.8 cubic foot trunk is bigger than the Altima’s 15.4 cubic foot trunk.
  • The new Accord can tow up to 1,000 lbs. The Altima can’t tow any loads.
  • With a maintenance free battery, the Accord offers more convenience than the Altima, which doesn’t have this type of battery.
  • Dual zone air conditioning is standard in new Accord models. This feature is only available at higher trims in the Altima.
