Which Is Better: The 2020 Honda Accord Or The 2020 Nissan Altima?


With near-identical pricing, comparing the 2020 Nissan Altima and the 2020 Honda Accord requires some analysis. 

The resident sedan experts at our Orlando Nissan dealership first noticed that the Accord lacked an all-wheel-drive system like the one offered on the Altima, which leaves drivers to compromise on all-weather traction. 

Furthermore, only Altima owners can take advantage of the pioneering, class-exclusive Variable Compression Turbo Engine, which calibrates the compression ratio to maximize performance and efficiency. 


Alongside powertrain innovations, the 2020 Nissan Altima is a step ahead of the competition in terms of technology. For starters, the Altima standardizes Type-C USB outlets, which you can’t find on any Accord model.

With your smartphone plugged in, feel free to load up either Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™ – standards in the 2020 Nissan Altima – to bring your favorite playlist, turn-by-turn directions, and your closest contacts straight into your touchscreen. Like any good sedan, the 2020 Honda Accord offers smartphone connectivity, but only at an extra cost.

The 2020 Nissan Altima also eclipses its competitor in the safety department with available Intelligent Forward Collision Warning and Rear Automatic Braking. 


Both the 2020 Nissan Altima and 2020 Honda Accord offer ample room for passengers to travel with comfort. However, the Altima accommodates you with 43.8 inches of front legroom as opposed to 42.3 inches in the Accord. Whether you’re a taller driver or simply crave more room to stretch your legs, the Altima is the superior choice.
