The 2014 Honda Accord Sedan vs. the 2014 Nissan Altima Sedan
At Bosak Honda in Highland, we’re proud to offer our customers from Merrillville and the surrounding Northwest Indiana communities a full lineup of the latest Honda models, including the 2014 Honda Accord sedan. Since its introduction, the Accord has long been one of the top cars in its class, a tradition that still continues today. This is particularly impressive considering all the competition in this class, including the 2014 Nissan Altima sedan. Let’s take a more in-depth look at what keeps the Accord in front of its competition.
Performance and Powertain
The 2014 Honda Accord sedan comes equipped with a standard 2.4L I-4 engine that delivers 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque, slightly more powerful than the 2.5L I-4 of the Altima that only produces 182 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque. Both the new Accord and latest Altima offer similar fuel economy ratings.
There’s no questioning the comfort level of the Honda Accord when compared to the Nissan Altima. The 2014 Accord comes loaded with standard interior features such as dual zone climate control, automatic climate control, cruise control, an illuminated vanity mirror, and a rearview camera, none of which are even available as options on the 2014 Altima sedan.
Both the new Accord and Altima sedans offer a number of the same safety features, receiving similar scores in NHTSA crash tests. However, the 2014 Accord scored five stars in the NHTSA’s Front Side Crash and Rollover Safety tests while the Altima only came up with four stars in each category. Honda’s sedan also offers second row head restraints which can be adjusted depending on your passenger’s height; this feature is not available with Nissan’s model.
