What brings us here today is the 2021 Nissan Altima and the 2021 Honda Accord matchup—two automotive rivals. To assist San Leandro, Oakland, and Alameda, California, shoppers in their search for the ultimate sedan, we put these two to the test. Who will come out on top? Let’s see what San Leandro Nissan has to say.
If you’re looking for some variety in performance, the Nissan Altima sports a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine or a 2.0L Variable Compression Turbo (VC-Turbo™) 4-cylinder engine, exclusive to the SR VC-Turbo™ trim. Each trim of the Altima uses either front-wheel drive (FWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD).
In the Honda Accord, you’ll get a 1.5L VTEC® turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. Only FWD can be used in any trim, while there’s no available AWD.
Two materials cover the seating in your Honda Accord, including cloth or the available leather trim. Only a few trims provide a leather-wrapped shift knob, and you receive less front legroom at 42.3 inches. You get a comparable moonroof, but it doesn’t come in as many trims.
You’re limited with the screens in your Honda with a 7-inch Driver Information Interface behind the wheel, and the 8-inch Display Audio system on the dashboard.
If you drive the Nissan, you can add Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert to every single trim. You’ll also get an audible and visual nudge from the Intelligent Driver Awareness if you start to drift.
While the Honda gives you an optional Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Monitor, they’re only available in a handful of trims. There’s no sign of a comparable system to the Intelligent Driver Awareness device, either.
After pitting feature against feature of both the 2021 Nissan Altima and the 2021 Honda Accord, we’re betting on the Nissan for more standard and available features. For San Leandro, Oakland, and Alameda, CA, drivers to decide, they may need to gather more information. A test drive at San Leandro Nissan may be in order, so schedule yours today!
