Altima vs Accord Exterior
Exterior dimension wise, both of these vehicles are basically the same within an inch or two, so there’s no real advantage to either vehicle there. As far as overall looks go, this category would have been a blowout in favor of Altima if this comparison had been made some years ago. Honda has, however, made great strides in recent years turning the Accord from a boxy, uninspiring car into something a little more sporty and stylish. Despite that, the 2017 Altima still pulls ahead in this category due to its sport-inspired design. There’s really no other way to put it rather than just to say that the Altima is a better looking car than the Accord. That’s why we’re giving the Altima a big “thumbs-up” in the exterior comparison segment.
Altima vs Accord Interior
The 2017 Altima and 2017 Accord both offer spacious interiors with room for five occupants. Cargo carrying capacity is virtually identical on both cars via their rear trunks. Nissan’s Altima has been accused in the past of providing less than high quality materials on the interior of the car, but that’s definitely changed during the last few years with lots of interior upgrades and refinements. Honda’s Accord model has always been known for its high quality interior materials and that hasn’t changed on the 2017 Accord. It is important to note in this segment comparison that the Altima does offer more front headroom and legroom than the Accord. We’re giving the nod to Altima in the interior comparison department due to this fact.

Altima vs Accord Technology
Tech toys are a hot a button with today’s car buyers and both the Altima and Accord bring lots of options to the table. In fact, the overall amount of technological features available on these cars basically mirror each other with a notable exception. The 2017 Honda Accord offers Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ functions while the 2017 Nissan Altima does not. Due to this fact, we’re going to have to give the Accord a close win in the technology segment comparison.
Altima versus Accord: Who Comes Out On Top?
This was a very close contest. Both the 2017 Nissan Altima and the 2017 Honda Accord provide a great value for midsized car buyers. After careful consideration, however, we’re recommending the 2017 Nissan Altima as the better value over the 2017 Honda Accord. Nissan’s Altima is more stylish, provides a better interior and is actually priced less than the Accord. This is no knock on the Honda vehicle, it’s absolutely a good car. We just believe the Altima offers a better value when taking an in-depth look at both cars.
