2017 Honda Accord vs Nissan Sentra
More and more, as SUVs encroach on territory previously held by the mid-size car segment, automakers are beginning to load up the latter with the latest in everything from performance and safety features to edges in technology and competitive passenger and cargo space. That’s especially the case for Honda and its flagship, the Honda Accord. With its reputation for reliability, well-appointed interior, and go-anywhere capabilities, it’s plain to see how the new Accord laps much of the competition on the market today, including the highly acclaimed Nissan Altima. We’ve made it easy to do so, too — you can see for yourself a few of the ways, right here on our website.
Honda Accord offers, first and foremost, a sturdier, more stable mid-size sedan feel than the new Altima. It’s lower in overall height, which also makes ingress easier, as well as longer by wheelbase, wider overall, and wider of track both front and rear. What’s more, you can find more horses under the hood as well as better turning and pulling power. Further, the new Accord is better equipped for safety, both technologically and regarding crash testing. It makes a full suite of Honda Sensing® technology available, whereas Altima offers only Intelligent Forward Collision Warning and Automatic Emergency Braking standard. Plus, Accord earned five stars in front-passenger, front-side, overall side barrier, and rollover crash testing from the NHTSA*, while Altima garnered only four, three, and four stars respectively.
Factor in more room overall in Accord for your fellow riders. Consider its larger trunk capacity for luggage and more sizable infotainment system to put entertainment, connectivity, and functional control at your fingertips. The result is evident: the new Honda Accord pulls ahead where it matters most. Eager to see where else it takes point against the latest Nissan Altima?
