Simply read on to find out how the Altima and Accord compare on:

  • Pricing Options
  • Performance
  • Safety Technology 

Altima vs. Accord: Pricing Options

2021 Nissan Altima trim levels range between:

  • 2021 Nissan Altima S FWD: Priced at $24,300
  • 2021 Nissan Altima Platinum AWD: Priced at $34,100

2021 Honda Accord trim levels range between:

  • 2021 Honda AccordLX: Priced at $24,770
  • 2021 Honda Accord Touring 2.0: Priced at $36,700

The Honda Accord starts higher than the Nissan Altima as standard and a whopping $2,600 higher once you get to each model’s highest trim.

Altima vs. Accord: Performance

Nissan vehicles have developed a strong reputation for bringing track-like performance to everyday driving, so you shouldn’t be surprised to see the latest Altima available with exceptional engines, including:

  • Standard 2.5L Four-Cylinder: Makes up to 188 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque.
  • Available Turbocharged 2.0L Four-Cylinder: Makes up to 248 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque.

You’ll also find a standard four-cylinder and optional upgrade with the Honda Accord, but the Accord doesn’t offer the same year-round reliability since it lacks the Altima’s available all-wheel drive (AWD) system.

Altima vs. Accord: Safety Technology

Though the 2021 Nissan Altima and 2021 Honda Accord both provide a strong range of safety features as standard, only the Nissan is available with:

  • Class-Exclusive Intelligent Around View® Monitor: Creates a 360-degree bird’s-eye view of the Altima and its surrounding area for safer maneuvering.
  • Intelligent Driver Alertness: Tracks your awareness and provides an alert should you ever need to take a break.
