2021 Nissan Altima vs. Honda Accord | Galesburg, IL

When it comes to city-savvy, convenience, and fun driving dynamics, it’s hard to beat a sedan. And when it comes to sedans, they don’t come much better than the new Nissan Altima. This budget-friendly, stylish, and fun-to-drive sedan is a great choice to consider if you’re shopping the 2021 Honda Accord in Galesburg, Illinois.

World-first VC-Turbo™ engine

The Altima offers the responsive, powerful, world-first Variable Compression Turbo engine. The VC Turbo™ adapts to the way you drive, delivering exceptional power and fuel economy in equal measure. Putting out 248 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque and returning up to 34 mpg on the highway, the VC-Turbo™ is a dynamo unlike anything the Honda Accord has to offer.

Available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive

Nissan offers Intelligent All-Wheel Drive as an option on its new Altima sedan. With Intelligent AWD, getting around Galesburg, Illinois, in the wintertime can feel less stressful. Honda, on the other hand, doesn’t offer AWD on its Honda Accord — you’ll have to stick with front-wheel drive.

Smart safety

The Altima is fun to drive and it’s safe, too. Nissan Safety Shield® 360 offers an array of safety warnings and alerts to prevent collisions and keep you focused on the road. The class-exclusive Intelligent Around View Monitor® gives you a full view of what is around your Altima. Nissan’s ProPILOT Assist leaves mere cruise control behind. ProPILOT Assist maintains lane position and keeps a safe distance from the vehicle in front. ProPILOT Assist even changes speed to stay in the flow of traffic and can come to a complete stop and then move forward again. The Accord does not offer anything like it.

Commuter comfort

In addition to power and brains, the Altima has the long-range comfort you want for commuting or weekend travel. With more front leg room and heated Zero Gravity front seats, the Altima can’t be beat for comfort. Like the Altima, the Accord has dual climate control, but with the Altima you can control the temperature remotely. With remote start and control, you can turn on and warm up the car without even getting in. This is a valuable feature on cold, snowy mornings when you are headed to work.
