2020 Honda Accord vs 2020 Nissan Altima

Serving Groton, CT

The Honda Accord is a midsize sedan that has directly competed against the Nissan Altima for the attention of local car shoppers for years. With overall pleasing styles, both models have comparable appeal at first glance. However, these popular sedans have a lengthy list of standout features and qualities. Are you ready to get more familiar with how these models stack up?


The 2020 Altima and the 2020 Accord have long, flowing lines from end to end, but the Accord’s profile shows off a stronger angle over the hood. The subtle differences in the curvature of the Altima’s roof and the Accord’s roof give the Accord more of a fastback-like façade. In addition, the 2020 Honda Accord has smooth yet defined contours that are accented by crisp personality lines on the upper and lower sides. The Altima’s sides, nose and rear have sharp angles for a different look.


These are four-door sedans that both have room for five passengers, but the Accord has a few more cubic feet of space in its cabin. The Accord also has a modern dashboard design with supportive seats, leather material and a push-button gear shifter design. Throughout its dashboard, you can have access to Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, an auto climate control system, Bluetooth connectivity and more. The Altima, on the other hand, has a traditional gear shifter knob. Its infotainment system screen is off-center from the rest of the center stack to create a busy look across the front end.


While the 2020 Altima and the 2020 Accord have a similar four-cylinder, 2.5-liter engine, the Accord’s engine is turbocharged and delivers 192 horsepower. The Altima’s engine is not turbocharged, and it gives you 188 horsepower. Both of these sedans are available with more advanced engines. The maximum horsepower available for the Accord is 252, and this is compared to 248 horsepower for the Altima.
