Nissan Altima vs. Honda Accord: Which Mid-Size Car is Right for Meridian MS?

Nissan Altima and Honda Accord are sedans that are long-time favorites in the mid-size car class for their blends of exceptional performance and luxury touches. For drivers in Meridian, however, only one gets the edge: Nissan Altima. There are three standout reasons for that.
  • It's more capable in Mississippi weather, as Intelligent All-Wheel Drive is available to deliver dependable traction, whether down the road to Philadelphia MS or over to Butler AL. Honda Accord doesn't offer AWD.
  • A wider range of active safety features and driver aids comes standard and available for the Forest MS drive. They include ProPILOT Assist, pedestrian detection, an Intelligent Around View Monitor, rear sonar sensors, rear auto braking, Intelligent Driver Alertness, and more. Honda Accord features the Honda Sensing driver-assist suite, but it only includes collision mitigation brakes, a road departure mitigation system, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, lane-keeping assist, and traffic sign recognition.
  • It pulls ahead on technology for the long ride to Hattiesburg. An 8-inch NissanConnect touchscreen comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, while Nissan Door-to-Door Navigation with Premium Traffic, SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link, nine-speaker Bose premium audio, and SiriusXM and HD Radio support are available. Nissan Voice Recognition offers ease of use, while two USB and two USB-C ports make keeping your devices energized easy. Honda Accord offers only a 7-inch display at base, Apple and Android phone support are only standard in the Sport trim and later, and only 2 USB ports are available.

Nissan Altima gets the best of Honda Accord in plenty of other ways. See for yourself here at Nissan of Meridian. Call our showroom here at 1106 North Frontage Road, and we'll be glad to schedule you for a test drive and a personal tour!
