The four-door sedan is the perfect automobile for the consumer that is looking for a little bit of everything. The 2016 Honda Accord leads the four-door sedan pack, offering everything you could want in a vehicle of this class, and racing ahead of other similar vehicles like the Nissan Altima.
The Honda Accord was redesigned for the 2016 model year, and it shows. From the new front grill and fascia to the upgraded LED taillights, the 2016 Honda Accord design team shot for a mix of beauty and style, and they succeeded wildly. The exterior of the Accord is sleek and elegant, and the interior is one that looks more at home in a Mercedes-Benz or a BMW than a Honda.
New wheels and tires as well as a spacious interior featuring a touch screen infotainment system complete the package, which is both modern and timeless, as well as exciting to any potential driver. ‘Functional,’ or ‘boring,’ might be the words some would say when they think of a sedan, but those are the last words anyone would use to describe the 2016 Honda Accord. The 2016 Nissan Altima, with its more bare-bones design, cannot compete with the sleek lines and comfortable luxury of the Honda Accord.
The 2016 Honda Accord sports a wealth of features that you would only expect from a far more expensive automobile. Even its base models come equipped with an automated emergency brakes and adaptive cruise control. The EX and above models also feature Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, and automatic transmission with no additional cost.
Another feature included standard on the EX and above models is LaneWatch, which like the name implies is a blind-spot monitoring system which shows you on the car’s center display a wide view of the passenger side when the right turn signal is activated. The 2016 Nissan Altima, by contrast, lacks Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity and has a less robust set of safety options than the 2016 Accord. Whether you are looking for safety or convenience features, the 2016 Honda Accord is the clear winner over the 2016 Nissan Altima.
The Honda Accord, even in its base package, offers stronger performance than you would expect from a four-door sedan. The Accord features a 2.4-liter, 185 horsepower engine and a six-speed manual transmission. Optional upgrades include a powerful 278 horsepower V-6 engine for those looking for more power.
Even with this peppy engine, the Accord still manages a very respectable EPA average of 27 miles per gallon in the city and 37 on the highway. The 2016 Nissan Altima comes close, but its similar sized engine is not quite as powerful as the one under the hood of the Accord.
