The Honda Accord has been around longer than many of our customers at Gillman Honda San Antonio. First introduced in 1976, it's changed - and improved - every year of its decades-long existence. While the Nissan Altima hasn't been around nearly as long, there are still plenty of folks comparing it to its tried-and-true competitor. So which one will be best for you?

2019 Honda Accord

In its second year after a full redesign, 2019 Honda Accord offers clean and athletic lines, complemented by lower curb weight and higher horsepower. That power is routed through one of two transmissions (a CVT for the base engine, and a ten-speed automatic for the more powerful 2.0L engine).

 

There's something else you should know, especially if you're conscious of the environment or your fuel spend. There is a 2019 Honda Accord Hybrid on offer, something the Nissan Altima is conspicuously lacking.

2019 Nissan Altima

Like the Honda Accord, the Nissan Altima offers a choice of two engines, albeit less powerful, and both fed through the same CVT. And while the Nissan Altima doesn't have a hybrid, it does offer optional all-wheel drive.

Both vehicles offer very capable active safety features, but they're deployed differently in each, since the new Honda car includes more of them as standard features instead of sequestering them in the higher trims. The same is true of both cars' infotainment systems; you'll have to move up the ladder to find features like Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ in the Nissan Altima.

So which of these mid-sized sedans will be the best fit for you, and/or your family? Both cars offer similar levels of luxury, a similar trim hierarchy, and are close to each other in terms of trim levels. However, the way their features are deployed across those trims tends to make the Honda Accord more cost effective and a better bang for the buck overall. With that being said, why not visit Gillman Honda San Antonio at 16044 Interstate 35 North (just past 1604) in Selma, TX and schedule a test drive?
