Nissan Altima vs. Honda Accord in Lake Norman


The Honda Accord has been available to shoppers for years, but, honestly, we can all admit that it's time to drive something with a little more interest and excitement. That's where the Nissan Altima comes in! With its fun powertrain and refined suspension, the Altima truly shines by comparison. But how closely do these two models stack up? Look below and find out, then experience the difference firsthand at our Lake Norman dealership.

  • The Nissan Altima starts at a lower price than the Honda Accord. When you're not paying as much for the base model, the money saved can go back in your pocket, or you can put it towards accessories, options, or packages to make your Nissan Altima more personal!
  • Keep your hands toasty with the available heated steering wheel on the Nissan Altima, which is nowhere to be found on the Honda Accord.
  • You'll find excitement and intrigue in the Altima's performance, but there's even more inside. Turn the volume dial to 11 with the Bose® sound system and nine speakers found inside the Nissan Altima, which will make your drives feel like a live concert!
  • The Nissan Altima has a more driver-focused suspension setup, allowing for a more connected drive on any road in any situation.
  • The front passenger can really stretch out with 45 inches of legroom in the Nissan Altima, which is more than they'll have to enjoy in the Honda Accord.

Nissan Altima vs. Toyota Camry in Lake Norman


Now it's clear that that the Nissan Altima is truly more fun to drive than the Honda Accord, whether you're at the wheel or along for the ride. But, what about the Toyota Camry? Toyota like to tout a racing heritage in the Camry, but you'll likely find that the Camry comes up short when compared to the exciting and engaging ride delivered by the new Nissan Altima!



  • Like the Honda Accord, the Toyota Camry does not offer a heated steering wheel. Only the Nissan Altima offers one to keep your hands toasty, even when the weather is not!
  • The Nissan Altima offers more power than the Toyota Camry which, along with the multi-link rear suspension, brings you more connection to the road than ever before! You'll truly enjoy driving the Altima, whether you're on a road trip or just going about your daily commute.
  • The Nissan Altima comes with Smart Auto Headlights that will turn on automatically when it gets dark (i.e. when you enter a tunnel or a thunderstorm approaches)! This convenience helps to keep you - and anything that might be ahead - in clear view.
  • The Nissan Altima comes with available plush leather seating, that when accented with wood trim pieces gives an aura of luxury that you won't find in the Toyota Camry.
  • Much like this Honda Accord, the Toyota Camry does not have as much front legroom as the Nissan Altima. Opt for the Altima, and give your passengers the chance to stretch out and enjoy the ride!
