2016 Nissan Altima vs. 2016 Honda Accord

Mid-size sedans are smooth operators - they're designed to get you good gas mileage but also to have a lot of ponies under the hood so you can accelerate and merge into traffic better, among other benefits. And we're looking at two of the biggest names in the class, the 2016 Nissan Altima vs. the 2016 Honda Accord. Leading off, you want a car that embodies power and precision when you get behind the wheel, but you also want something that looks modern and elegant. The 2016 Honda Accord wins plaudits for various features, but its exterior is boxy and chunky compared to the Altima's smoother edges which begin with boomerang headlights and glide all the way up and across the vehicle.

The 2016 Nissan Altima also offer you more choice when you're vehicle shopping, with seven possible model options: Base model 2.5, 2.5 S, 2.5 SR, 2.5 SV, 2.5 SL, 3.5 SR and top-of-the-line 3.5 SL, with the numbers referring to the size of the engine inside. The Accord's six models offer a little less variety, and in addition come with a steeper price tag than the comparable Altima models.
