2015 Nissan Altima vs. 2015 Honda Accord

Before Driving Home a 2015 Nissan Altima in Mid-Missouri…

Mid-Missouri drivers have a wide range of affordable mid-size sedan options, and the 2015 Nissan Altima has managed to become much more impressive than it used to be. Is it the right sedan for you? Maybe if you’re willing to upgrade. The entry-level Altima 2.5, however, is quite bare—Bluetooth connectivity is the main highlight of the Altima 2.5, with other standard features limited to power accessories, steel wheels, and air conditioning. Upgrades like the NissanConnect interface, a rearview camera, and steering wheel-mounted controls may make the Altima a bit more competitive, but even then it falls short of many competing models.

One such competing model is the 2015 Honda Accord, which just took up residence on the 2015 Car and Driver 10Best Cars in America list (this makes a record 29 times). In addition to the Accord’s recent accolades, the basic LX trim is setting a new standard for standard features, giving you access to the following amenities without needing to upgrade: 8-inch touchscreen system, Bluetooth phone and audio, rearview camera, and much more. In addition to the features, Honda has been crafting one of the safest sedans on the road. 2015 Accord Sedan models have earned a Five-Star Overall Safety Rating from the NHTSA, putting the Accord well ahead of the Altima in important safety tests like the NHTSA Front Side Crash Test (Honda’s Accord took home five stars to Altima’s three).
