2014 Acura TSX vs. 2014 Nissan Altima Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Altima than the Acura TSX, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan Altima will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Acura TSX.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura TSX as you will with the Nissan Altima, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Acura TSX is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Altima. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Acura TSX will cost more in transportation costs than the Nissan Altima.

Dimensions
The Acura TSX is about the same width as the Nissan Altima. The Acura TSX is slightly shorter than the Nissan Altima, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Acura TSX has much less torque than the Nissan Altima, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Acura TSX has a smaller turning radius than the Nissan Altima, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura TSX is significantly less powerful than the Nissan Altima. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura TSX and the Nissan Altima. The Acura TSX has less cargo capacity than the Nissan Altima, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Acura TSX than that of the Nissan Altima.
