Seemingly every year around this time, we hear that, once again, there are two vehicles that are head-and-shoulders above all others. But how do these two--the 2015 Nissan Altima vs. 2015 Honda Accord--fare against one another? To be certain, they are both exceptionally sophisticated vehicles, but it might surprise Houston-area drivers to know that they aren’t as similar as one might assume. Despite similar powertrains and similar reputations, the 2015 Nissan Altima puts up a greater highway fuel economy than its Honda counterpart.
Inside the Altima, however, is where the greatest difference is felt. Front-seat passengers enjoy the benefit of Nissan’s NASA-inspired Zero Gravity seats, which help reduce the stress associated with driving by easing the effort required to remain comfortable. An additional benefit of these seats, however, is the space they save; Altima drivers enjoy 2.5 inches of extra legroom, which enjoying an additional inch of headroom. This may not seem like much, sure, but when you drive the Altima daily, you’ll be grateful for the extra space.
