They are commonly seen on the roads, and that is no mistake. They have a lot to offer drivers from a wide variety of backgrounds. Midsize sedans can serve as the vehicle of choice for a single driver who’s living the busy life of classes during the day and a part-time job at night. They can also serve as the family car, bringing people to and fro during the daily grind as well as on summer vacations. Midsize sedans are a viable option, but there are loads of them out there vying for your attention. Which one should you go with? Let’s take a look at the 2017 Nissan Altima vs the 2017 Honda Accord.

While each of these examples is a good example of what makes a midsize sedan such an appealing option, the Altima has a leg up in certain areas.

More legroom and better highway fuel efficiency in the 2017 Altima

Fuel costs are an important concern for people all across the country, and it is important to feel comfortable with what you are spending to gas up your car. Midsize sedans are always reliable for a wallet-friendly fuel economy, but the 2017 Altima outshines the 2017 Accord in its highway fuel efficiency, getting 39 highway miles per gallon over the Accord’s 36 highway mpg. If your commute takes you cruising in the express lanes, this is the kind of number you’ll want to see.

Fuel efficiency, safety, and reliability are paramount to a quality vehicle for sure, but so is comfort. Legroom is important, especially if you are on the taller side, and the Altima offers a bit more than the Accord. Speaking of what you’ll find up in the front, the Altima offers you a USB port for your audio needs, but you will not find that in the Accord.

The 2017 Nissan Altima does have a base MSRP that is $5 more than the base price of the 2017 Honda Accord, but with better highway fuel efficiency, a bit more legroom, and a USB port, isn’t that worth the extra fiver?
