Vehicle Comparisons:
Nissan Altima vs Honda Civic

2017-nissan-altima-1Both the Nissan Altima and Honda Civic have received minor redesigns for the new year. However, only one sedan performs the best while offering drivers in the Philadelphia, Lansdale, and Doylestown areas the entertainment, comfort, and convenience features they need on the road ahead.

Both sedans offer incredible reliability, outstanding performances, and supreme comfort and convenience, but which one edges out the other in a head-to-head comparison? Although it’s a close call, our experts at Montgomeryville Nissan outline below why the Altima ultimately comes out on top.

Nissan Altima vs Honda Civic

Both the Altima and Civic have great reputations for value, performance, and overall reliability. Since last year saw a redesign of the Civic as well as a complete update of the Altima, not much changed this year.

The new Altima delivers the same great fuel economy drivers have come to know and respect. Getting an EPA-estimated 27 city/39 highway mpg, the Nissan Altima offers one of the best fuel economies in its class.

2017-nissan-altima-interior-1The Nissan Altima also offers some of the best interior comfort in its class, and its engine choices, when coupled with Nissan’s continuously variable transmission, deliver a fantastic driving experience. Nissan’s technology and infotainment system continues to provide Altima drivers great, intuitive, easy-to-use features.

The Civic also delivers lots of room in its comfy and high-quality cabin and a superior ride quality as well as strong fuel economy. However, the technology interface is confusing and suffers from more than a little lag, and the collision warning system can be a little oversensitive.

Nissan Altima vs. Honda Civic Performance

Both the Altima and Civic stack up closely when put side by side in terms of performance. The Civic is equipped with a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, which falls short to the Altima’s standard 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine.

When equipped with the 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine, the Nissan Altima can reach 179 horsepower—almost 30 more horsepower over the Honda Civic’s 158.

The Altima also givers drivers an additional engine choice. Equipped on the Altima 3.5 SL and 3.5 SR trims is a standard 3.5L V6 engine. The Civic, on the other hand, comes standard with only the base 2.0-liter 4-cyninder engine on all trims.
