2017 Nissan Altima vs 2017 Honda Accord near Romeoville, IL

*Vehicle shown above is a 2017 Nissan Altima in Deep Pearl Blue

If buying a full-size sedan is on your agenda, check out this competition between the 2017 Nissan Altima vs 2017 Honda Accord near Romeoville, IL. It’s easy to see how the Altima takes the gold, so come on over to Thomas Nissan of Joliet as soon as today to test drive one! It’s only a matter of time before you have the 2017 Altima in your possession.

From under the hood, you can easily distinguish which sedan is more capable of high performance. The Altima’s standard 2.5L engine is just slightly bigger than the Accord’s 2.4L engine. If efficiency is high on your list, the Altima has you covered with a massive 18-gallon fuel tank capacity. The Accord falls short with only a 17.2-gallon capacity, and compromises on its fuel economy, too, by offering a rating of only 27/36/30 MPG city/hwy/combined1. The Nissan Altima surges forth with an efficient 27/39/31 mpg city/hwy/combined2, leaving you to fill up at the pump more often if you choose the Honda Accord. There’s even a slight difference in the transmission systems integrated in each sedan. The Accord may have a standard 6-speed manual transmission, but the Altima offers a standard Xtronic CVT® for smooth handling on every drive.

The interior of the 2017 Altima is fully-equipped and designed for your basic everyday needs. This sedan offers 45 inches of front legroom, so you can comfortably relax on your way to Heritage Falls Water Park. If you opt for the 2017 Accord, you might feel cramped with its mere 42.5 inches of front legroom. Likewise, the Altima offers just a bit more space above you with 40 inches of front headroom. Even if you’re not the tallest person, the Accord’s 37.6 inches of front headroom will seem just a little too constraining. This comparison of the 2017 Nissan Altima vs 2017 Honda Accord near Romeoville, IL, shows that the Altima has the lead thus far in several areas—and still more to come.

Not only is the Altima accommodating enough to keep you riding comfortable, but it also integrates interior features that are designed for your convenience. You’ll find standard rear reading lights and an illuminated glove box to optimize your cabin visibility in the Nissan Altima, but the Honda Accord lacks these features. Even though the Accord comes with standard alloy wheels, the Altima offers upscale steel wheels to grace the exterior with a touch of luxury.

Make sure to check out the winner of this competition between the 2017 Nissan Altima vs 2017 Honda Accord near Romeoville, IL: the Altima! There’s only one full-size sedan that will win your heart, and if you’re ready to test drive the 2017 Altima, simply visit Thomas Nissan of Joliet today! We are located at 1427 North Larkin Avenue in Joliet, IL, so stop by when it’s convenient for you.
