Nissan and Honda have long been competitors, each battling for dominance in the sedan market. When searching for just the right car for your needs, there are a few things you should consider when looking at Honda or Nissan sedans near Boulder. To help you out, we thought we’d compare a few of the top sedan models this year for each brand.

Let’s begin by comparing the 2015 Honda Accord with a comparably equipped 2015 Nissan Altima.

2015 Nissan Altima vs. 2015 Honda Accord

These mid-sized sedans are ideal for families on the go. Spacious and well appointed, they make the frenzy of daily travel a bit less strenuous. But while the Nissan Altima is, without a doubt a handsome car, when it comes to convenience, tech features, and safety, the Honda Accord outshines Nissan hands down:

  • The Honda Accord offers cruise control standard on every sedan – Nissan has it available in upgraded versions of the Altima only.
  • Nissan offers 16” steel wheels with bolt-on wheel covers, while Honda offers attractive alloy wheels standard.
  • Nissan Altima starts at $22,300 MSRP, while the Honda Accord comes in at $22,105 MSRP*

2015 Nissan Sentra vs. 2015 Honda Civic

Compact sedans are excellent choices for drivers looking for comfort and fuel economy without a big budget. They’re small, light, nimble in the commute, and have an impressive array of standard features available to entice any driver considering going small.

When we consider how the 2015 Nissan Sentra stacks up against the 2015 Honda Civic, however, it’s clear which one comes out the winner:

  • The Honda Civic scored a 10/10 for safety when reviewed by The Car Connection – the Sentra only scored 6/10.
  • The Honda Civic received a rating of “Good” from the IIHS in their Small Overlap Front crash test – the Nissan Sentra was rated as “Poor.”

When compared side to side, the Honda Civic clearly has a thing or two to teach the Nissan Sentra:
