The 2013 Honda Accord Sedan vs. the 2013 Nissan Altima Sedan

2013 Honda Accord Sedan

At Bosak Honda in Highland, we’re happy to recommend the 2013 Honda Accord sedan to anyone. Redesigned for the 2013 model year, the Accord is smaller, lighter, and more powerful than the past models. We think it can match up against any other car in the super-competitive mid-sized family sedan segment. Let’s see how it looks when put up against the 2013 Nissan Altima sedan.

Interior Features and Capacity

Despite having been downsized slightly for 2013, the Honda Accord sedan still has more room all around than the 2013 Nissan Altima sedan. You’ll get more cargo and passenger room in the Accord, meaning that you and your passengers will be more comfortable.

Both of these sedans come well equipped, even in the base models; however, the Accord has some convenient standard features that are options in the Altima, including:

  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Cruise control
  • Rearview camera

Safety Features

The new Accord sedan comes out on top in the area of safety, too. In fact, it was one of the first cars to receive the rating of Top Safety Pick+ from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety under aggressive new safety guidelines. The Accord sedan also beat the Altima sedan in front side crash tests and rollover safety tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, earning a perfect score of five stars, where the Altima sedan only received four stars in these tests.

Engine and Performance

Finally, the 2013 Accord sedan wins again when it comes to power. With a sophisticated direct-injection 2.4L four-cylinder engine, the Accord cranks out 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. The Altima sedan has a slightly larger 2.5L four-cylinder engine that only makes 182 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque. You’ll feel those extra horses when accelerating. And to top it off, the Accord is rated as a Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle II vehicle.
