So, for those of you deciding on the 2018 Honda Accord or the 2018 Nissan Altima, keep reading to learn more about each ride and to find out about all they have to offer! After all, these rides are two of the most popular midsize sedans on the market. Let’s take a look!

The 2018 Honda Accord

The Honda Accord is redesigned for 2018 and offers five unique trim levels. Spread across each trim is a wealth of features such as dual-zone automatic climate control, automatic high beam control, LED fog lights, an 8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth®*, a sunroof, USB ports, satellite radio, leather upholstery, driver-seat memory settings, heated front seats, blind-spot monitoring, and much more.

In terms of engine, the Accord provides two traditional engines as well as a hybrid powertrain. When it comes to standard and available driver-assistance features, the Accord offers more than the Altima. In the cargo area, the Accord provides plenty of space that both you and your passengers are certain to enjoy.

The 2018 Nissan Altima

The 2018 Altima is offered in five separate trim levels. Some of the features you can expect to enjoy include paddle shifters, a 7-inch touchscreen, 18-inch wheels, a navigation system, remote engine start, synthetic leather upholstery, heated front seats, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a sunroof, fog lights, and more. The Altima offers the choice of a V6 power as well as Zero Gravity seats which are extremely comfortable.

While both vehicles offer a large selection of safety features, it’s worth noting that the Nissan Altima does not offer automatic high beams, lane keeping assist, or lane departure warning.

How Can You Choose?  

If you’re basing your decision on exterior alone, we really can’t give you a suggestion. After all, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. While the Accord offers a sleek and modern exterior, the Altima continues to bring the stylish exterior it has offered in the past. However, there are many differences to the 2018 Accord and the 2018 Altima. First of all, the Accord brings more space to the table. The 2018 Accord is also redesigned for the year which means it already has a leg up against the Altima.

For both, they offer countless safety features and a wide array of technology features that would keep you and your passengers engaged and connected on the road. Both vehicles offer the choice of trim levels and features which mean drivers are able to pick and choose the features they desire, which is always a good thing.

Our opinion? Due to the redesign of the 2018 Honda Accord, we choose it as our winner. Simply put: It’s more modern and has a cleaner, spacious feel to it. In terms of features, it simply provides more – especially when it comes to safety. Offering plenty of space, an upgraded interior, more safety features, and a variety of other options, the Accord simply provides a wide selection of features that we know you’ll love!
