Nissan Altima Takes On The Competitors

See How the New 2017 Nissan Altima Fares Against the Competition in Midlothian, VA.

Get ahead of the competition and drive the new 2017 Nissan Altima! Thanks to all of the innovations it wields beneath the hood, this sedan moves with absolute confidence. Not to mention, it also possesses a breath-taking design both inside and out, making it a stunning mode of transportation. Rivals such as the Ford Fusion and Honda Accord can hardly compete!

For your convenience, we have compiled a list of advantages the Nissan Altima has to offer below so drivers living in Richmond, Chester, and other areas nearby can see why Hyman Bros. Nissan in Midlothian, Virginia, gives this model two thumbs up!

Nissan Altima VS. Ford Fusion

Compare the specifications of the base Nissan Altima and the new Ford Fusion and you would see that there are more benefits to be had with the former model. The most apparent difference is in terms of performance ratings. Our pick offers more power and maintains better efficiency, which amounts to an exceptional experience overall.

  • The standard-most power source equipped with the new Nissan Altima is a 2.5L 4-Cylinder engine that generates as much as 179-hp and 177 lb-ft of torque. It does fairly better in contrast to the 175-hp and 175 lb-ft of torque produced by the entry-level engine on the Ford Fusion. However, take into account the economy figures, and the contrast in performance is far greater. There is no denying that the 27 city, 29 highway, and 31 combined MPG supplied by the Nissan is much better than the 22 city, 34 highway, and 26 combined MPG supplied by the Ford.

  • These figures are not the only way in which the Altima outperforms the Fusion. Reinforced with Active Understeer Control and other performance-enhancing technology, this sedan drives with more stability so you can drive down winding roads more easily. In fac, the turning radius of 18.1 feet on the Nissan, when opposed to the 18.8 feet radius on the Ford, allows drivers to make tighter turns. In other words, it makes sure that you always enjoy an engaging ride.





Nissan Altima VS. Honda Accord

Make a similar comparison between the base Nissan Altima and the new Honda Accord and you will learn that our pick still stands its ground even in this case. Yet the differences between these two are largely in regard to composition rather than performance. For instance, the former offers many niceties as a standard whereas the latter does not.

  • Though Honda products are widely known for their fuel-friendly performance, you will be surprised to know that the Altima provides better fuel economy than the Accord. Its 39 highway MPG is particularly noteworthy over the 36 offered by the opponent. Considering that the Nissan also comes with a bigger fuel tank-an 18-gallon tank, to be more specific, which is a gallon more than the challenger's-it will allow you to travel farther without having to stop to refuel as frequently.

  • Yet the new Nissan Altima is more convenient still. Inside, it boasts a more spacious cabin than the Honda Accord. Its legroom and headroom measurement of 45 and 40 inches, respectively, is much roomier than the 42.5 and 39.1 inches of the competitor's cabin. Better still, our pick is included with high-tech features like a Push Button Start proximity key and handy amenities like cargo tie downs as a standard. Additions like these are otherwise unavailable on the Honda, and keeping in mind that the Nissan is more affordable with an MSRP of $22,500 that is $755 less than the contender's, it is easy to see which sedan is the more desirable choice.
