Altima vs. the Honda Accord

Most are familiar with the Honda Accord - it's been a staple of the make's line-up for years. At first glance, it might seem like these two sedans are similar, but there are many things that set the Altima apart:

  • Lower starting price than the Accord
  • Better highway fuel-economy (38 vs. 36 on the Accord)
  • Bigger engine (2.5L vs. 2.4) & larger fuel tank
  • More front and rear legroom than the Accord

Altima vs. the Toyota Camry

Toyota often touts the reliability of the Camry, but the Altima is highly-reliable as well. The Altima wins in many areas when you compare both models side-by-side:

  • Lower starting price than the Camry
  • Better combined MPG (30 vs. 29 on the Camry)
  • An extra 12V DC power outlet
  • More power: 182 horses vs. 178 on the Camry
  • More front & rear legroom

Altima vs. the Ford Fusion

More recent to the sedan market, and with a recent redesign, the Fusion looks nice. The Altima offers many perks over the Fusion:

  • Much higher combined MPG (30 vs. 27 on the Fusion)
  • More power: 182 horses vs. 175 on the Fusion
  • Larger fuel tank
  • More front & rear legroom
