With all the time we've spent comprehensively covering and comparing the, you might forget that there's an entire class of midsize sedans waiting to grab buyers who aren't super loyal to one of those rivals. The biggest non-Camry rival to the Accord is probably the popular Altima, and a new one has been revealed at the 2018 New York auto show. After seeing the new at the show along with the 2018 Accord, here are our initial impressions on how they compare.
The Honda Accord Is Great, but It's Not Selling
The new model is a significant improvement over the previous one, but sales have declined since its introduction.The all-new 2018 Honda Accord is a significant improvement over the already good previous model. It won the North American Car of the Year Award, and we certainly enjoyed it when we drove it. Yet sales are down significantly month-to-month over last year since the new Accord became available last fall, according to GoodCarBadCar.
That’s the thesis behind the new Nissan Altima , which now offers AWD along with a sleek new look. Even if it has AWD, though, the Altima still needs to AutoGuide reviews the latest new cars with test drives, car comparisons and shootouts plus coverage of breaking auto industry news, auto shows

The 2019 Altima doesn't just have a new design. I would argue it's a better one. Although I'm not sure if I like the car's floating roof look, the rest of the Altima looks sharp, with a low hood, crisp character lines, and refined taillights that continue the brand's boomerang theme we've seen on other models.
The Accord also has a gently sloping rear deck, and from the side, thehas a rear quarter window behind the rear doors. Aside from the top of the Accord's grille, the Accord is also an attractive midsize sedan. For me, this category is a tie, though I do prefer Honda's 19-inch wheel designs to the 's.
The biggest news with the 2019 Altima is its availability of all-wheel drive on every trim of the base engine. AWD isn't available on the Accord, and Nissan doesn't make you pay for an engine upgrade to get it.

If you feel you need AWD where you live, that could push you toward the Nissan. However, if you prefer to shift a car yourself, Honda offers a manual transmission on both of its non-hybrid engines (a CVT is standard on every Altima), and at least for now, in this pairing only Honda offers a hybrid.
Both cars offer a full package of advanced active safety tech, but only Honda makes it standard on every trim. The Altima's system is standard on the SV, SL, and Platinum trims but not available on the S or SR. One Nissan advantage is that it offers rear automatic braking, whereas Honda's system merely warns of an obstacle. Still useful but not the same.
Base model goodness
Today's base-model midsize sedans are far better-equipped than their predecessors. The 2018 Accord LX, for example, includes 17-inch alloy wheels, Honda Sensing active safety tech, and LED headlights. TheS wears 16-inch steel wheels with covers, but it has an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus an eight-way power driver's seat.

The 2018 Accord is ready for buyers who want luxury features without the luxury badge. The Accord Touring gets a head-up display, heated and ventilated front seats (Altima only gets heated), and heated rear outboard seats. Before you get too disappointed about the Altima not offering ventilated seats on its lower-volume Platinum trim, consider that the car does have a helpful multicamera surround-view system and a heated steering wheel.
Both cars are spacious yet have sloping rooflines that might encroach on headroom for taller rear-seat passengers. Both cars have a screen perched at the top of the dash, but the Accord goes for more of its great-looking fake wood trim to the Altima's mix of good fake wood, satin silver trim, and some beige trim around the HVAC controls. The Nissan also has comfortable Zero Gravity front seats.

This Tiny Honda Hot Hatch Concept is the Definition of Forbidden Fruit .
Who wouldn't want this baby Type R?As far as mainstream automakers go, Honda's current lineup is pretty darn fun to drive. You don't even have to spring for the Si or Type R to enjoy driving the Civic, and it's almost impossible to not have a great time behind the wheel of the 2.0-liter Accord Sport. Heck, even the Fit is pretty sporty. But despite all of that, we're still going to complain about the fact there's no chance Honda will bring this tiny hot hatch concept to the U.S.
