Choosing the right midsize sedan for your family is a daunting task, especially with so many options available. Here at Thomas Nissan of Joliet, we hope to make your decision a little easier by comparing the 2017 Nissan Altima with the 2017 Honda Accord. Find out why the Altima takes first place in this friendly competition.

Driving an efficient car is of utmost importance, as it can save you both hard-earned money and valuable time. Thanks to its optimal 39/27 MPG city/hwy1, the Altima lets you spend more time behind the wheel of your vehicle, and less time stopping to re-fuel. While the current Accord tries to compete with the recent Altima, its mere 36/27 MPG city/hwy2 just isn’t enough. The 2017 Accord has a 17.2-gallon fuel tank capacity, but is not match for the 2017 Altima’s 18-gallon fuel tank capacity. With a cruising range of 486 miles in the city and 702 miles on the highway, the Nissan Altima can keep going for long stretches. Meanwhile, the Altima lags behind, providing a cruising range of only 464.4 miles on the city and 619.2 miles on the highway.

Just a few simple conveniences can make all the difference in the world, whether headed to Marcus Theatres for date night or Centennial Water Park for some family fun. The 2017 Nissan Altima is appointed with six speakers total to stream your own playlists or listen to the available SiriusXM® Satellite Radio3. Unfortunately, the 2017 Honda Accord is only equipped with four speakers total. The Altima comes standard with an overhead console for additional storage, an amenity not found in the Accord. Additionally, the Altima’s standard Tire Pressure Monitoring System utilizes an Easy-fill Tire Alert feature. The Accord’s standard TPMS System does not incorporate an Easy-fill Tire Alert. Undoubtedly, the 2017 Altima has more of the features you crave to enhance your ride.

Having the space to spread out is vital, especially on those long cross-country road trips. The 2017 Altima supplies a spacious 40 inches of front headroom, while the 2017 Accord offers just 39.1 inches of headroom in the front. Altima drivers can really stretch out, thanks to 45 inches of front legroom. On the other hand, Accord drivers will feel slightly cramped, with a mere 42.5 inches of legroom to squeeze into. Based on the aforementioned, the current Altima affords more room to relax than the current Accord.

In this duel between the 2017 Nissan Altima vs 2017 Honda Accord near Orland Park, IL, the Altima reigns supreme. To see this outstanding sedan in action, visit your local Thomas Nissan of Joliet dealer. You can find us near the intersection of I-7 and Theodore Street in Joliet, across the street from North Ridge Plaza. We are always more than willing to assist with any questions that you may have. Stop by at your earliest convenience.
