So which one do you choose for your driving needs here in Frankfort and Orland Park, IL? Find out how they compare right here!

Efficiency and Performance

You want both a vehicle that isn’t stressed about merging onto a busy freeway and that that won’t cost you an arm and a leg at the pump. Which one comes out ahead?

The 2016 Nissan Altima makes 182 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque with its 2.5L four-cylinder engine and earns an EPA estimated 27 mpg city/39 mpg highway/31 mpg combined with continuously variable transmission.

Meanwhile, the 2016 Honda Accord makes 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque with its 2.4L four-cylinder and earns an EPA estimated 27 mpg city/37 mpg highway/31 mpg combined* with continuously variable transmission.

It’s clear that the Accord offers more power and that both of these vehicles deliver nearly identical EPA rated efficiency. What about upgrade options?

The 3.5L V6 available in the Altima makes 270 hp and 251 lb-ft of torque and delivers a 22 mpg city/32 mpg highway rating from the EPA.

The 3.5L V6 in the Honda Accord is good for 278 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque, with an EPA estimate of up to 21 mpg city/34 mpg highway with a six-speed automatic transmission.

Once again this contest goes to the Honda, for its added efficiency and muscle.
