Honda Accord LX vs Nissan Altima 2.5

2015 Honda Accord LX

The Honda Accord LX is arguably one of the best sedans on the market. It’s affordable, safe, and versatile for almost anything you’ll need, from long-distance road trips to the short jump across town. However, the sedan is also a widespread type of car with every car company having at least two different models in their lineup. This is why so many sedans, such as the Nissan Altima 2.5, appear to be so similar to their competitors. But there is more to this market than meets the eye and these are the primary differences between the new Accord and the Altima.

Superior Engine Capabilities

When you are comparing sedans, it’s always best to look under the hood and find out what is going on in there in order to determine the vehicles capabilities. Though both the Accord LX and the Altima feature V-6 engines for power and fuel economy, superior Honda design allows the Accord LX to pack more “oomph” from its engine. Able to generate 185 horsepower at 6400 rpm and 181 pound-feet of torque, the Accord has better hauling power than the Altima, making it a more versatile vehicle.

Larger Size

This strong ability to haul more translates well into the second difference between these two models. The Accord not only sports more head, hip, leg, and shoulder room than any other sedan on the market, making it quite comfortable for its passengers, it also has a much larger trunk space. So when you have a college kid getting for the big move on campus, the Accord is more adequately prepared to serve in the move.

Both of these fields, as well as having better safety features such as a rearview camera, make the 2015 Honda Accord LX the superior vehicle in this match-up.
