2018 Nissan Altima vs 2018 Honda Accord Comparison

  • For starters, the Altima is a more affordable sedan, especially when you consider the options you may want to add with a higher trim or with standalone add-ons. The new Accord, as popular as it is, will cost you far more when you complete your sedan with all the features you like.
  • The Accord sticks with a four-cylinder engine in all trims, while the Altima allows Concord, Huntersville and Charlotte area drivers to pick a dynamic V-6 setup if they want more power.
  • Front-seat passengers will be more comfortable in the new Altima, which offers much more leg room up front as well as slightly more head room than what the Accord makes available in terms of space.

2018 Nissan Altima vs 2018 Toyota Camry Comparison

  • Once again, the popular Camry commands a higher price than the Altima, which is the better midsized sedan option for affordable driving around the Salisbury and Monroe areas.
  • The Altima adds a three-year / 36,000-mile roadside assistance program while you'll have to spend more for that layer of protection with your new Camry.
  • When compared to the new Camry, the Altima has fare more room for cargo storage in the trunk, while the passenger space is also more spacious than the Toyota midsized sedan's cabin.

2018 Nissan Altima vs 2018 Hyundai Sonata Comparison

  • For commuting around Charlotte and the Matthews, Mooresville and Kannapolis areas, the Altima earns better fuel economy than the Sonata.
  • Additionally, the Altima comes available with a stronger V-6 engine option, while you'll have to be satisfied with either the standard four-cylinder or the available turbocharged four with the Sonata.
  • The base Altima includes more standard and optional features when compared to the Sonata. These include a standard CD player and optional power driver's seat in the Altima, both of which require a higher and more expensive trim level of the Sonata.

2018 Nissan Altima vs 2018 Kia Optima Comparison

  • You'll earn better fuel economy in the Altima when comparing to the four-cylinder setup of the new Optima, making the base level of Nissan's midsized sedan the better option for daily commuting around Concord and beyond.
  • The corrosion / rust thru warranty coverage with the Altima lasts for the same five years as the same agreement with the Optima, but the Nissan car's protection is for unlimited miles, making it a great option if you're on the road a lot for the first five years of ownership.
  • The Altima starts off with a slightly lower price than the Optima, so your dollar will take you further with the Nissan sedan.

2018 Nissan Altima vs 2018 Subaru Legacy Comparison

  • Fuel efficiency is better in the Altima, which doesn't include standard AWD like the Legacy, but you don't really need that here in the Kannapolis area where snow and ice is a pretty rare occurrence.
  • The standard offerings in the Altima are more generous than what's included in the base level of the Legacy. A standard CD player and the option for a power driver's seat in the Altima have to be added with a costlier trim of the Legacy.
  • For storing cargo, the Altima offers a more spacious trunk area than the Legacy.
