Dependable sedans like the Nissan Altima and the Honda Accord are a smart way to get around Port Richey, Bayonet Point, and Jasmine Estates, FL. They're safe, stylish, and offer the latest technology. To help you choose between the two, the team at Maus Nissan of New Port Richey put together this 2020 Nissan Altima vs. 2020 Honda Accord comparison.


The Nissan Altima offers a comfortable and stylish cabin. You'll have plenty of room to relax, plus a standard 8-way power adjustable driver's seat with lumbar support. Cloth seats come standard, but both leather seats and Sport Cloth with contrast stitching are also available. To make your midsize sedan feel like a sports car, there's a classic flat-bottom leather-wrapped steering wheel.

The Honda Accord also has a stylish interior, but it doesn't have the same exciting atmosphere. There's no flat-bottom steering wheel or Sport Cloth available. Both leather and cloth seats are available, but a power adjustable driver's seat isn't available on the first few trim levels.  

Infotainment System

The Altima also includes a user-friendly infotainment system. It comes with an 8-inch touch-screen that features tons of smartphone compatibility. There's a Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, Hands-free Text-Messaging Assistant, Apple CarPlay®, and Android Auto™.

Nissan Voice Recognition makes it easy to control your apps, put on a playlist, or stay connected without taking your eyes off the road. You can even enter an address and get turn-by-turn directions with Nissan Door to Door Navigation with Premium Traffic.

The Honda Accord also lets you stream music, make calls, and reply to text messages. Unfortunately, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ don't come standard. Plus, it features a smaller 7-inch screen.

Safety Features

You can also count on the Nissan Altima to help keep you safe. If the unexpected ever happens, you'll be protected by 10 airbags. The Altima includes a pair of front airbags, driver and front-passenger knee airbags, seat-mounted side-impact airbags in both rows of seats, and roof-mounted side-curtain airbags that cover the entire cabin.

To help prevent accidents, there's Nissan Safety Shield® 360. It gives you more awareness during your drive with technology such as:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
  • Blind Spot Warning
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Rear Automatic Braking
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert

Each one of these features focuses on what's around your car, while Intelligent Driver Alertness monitors how you're driving. If it detects any signs that you're drowsy or distracted, it will remind you to keep your eyes on the road or to take a break.

The Honda Accord also comes with a series of driver-assistance features. Its Honda Sensing® system has similar technology, but it doesn't include a Blind Spot Warning or offer anything like Intelligent Driver Alertness. It's also not as reliable in the event of a collision with only eight airbags.
