Robbins Nissan knows shopping for a new car seems daunting so we’e done some comparison-shopping for you!

For better traction on the highways, the Nissan Altima comes with larger standard tires than the Accord. The front grille of the Altima 2.5 uses electronically controlled shutters to close off airflow and reduce drag when less engine cooling is needed. This helps improve highway fuel economy. The Accord Sedan does not have actie grille shutters to improve drag. The rear seats in the Nissan Altima split to accommodate bulky cargo. The Accord’s seats fold in a single piece. If you need room, rear passengers cannot sit in the back and transport bulky cargo at the same time. Passengers enjoy more front headroom and front legroom in the Nissan Altima over the Honda Accord. The 2017 Nissan Altima is waiting for you at Robbins Nissan and our helpful sales associates look forward to answering any question and setting you up for a test drive.

While both were fun in their own ways, we were partial to the app, which makes us all the more excited for its next generation: the Nissan Diehard Fan “Nations” App. (more…)
