2018 Honda Accord vs. 2018 Nissan Altima Review

Comparison Review

Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Accord than the Nissan Altima. The Nissan Altima will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Accord.

Convenience
With the Nissan Altima you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Honda Accord, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda Accord and the Nissan Altima have similar Destination Charges.
