2016 Honda Accord vs 2016 Nissan Maxima
While the Honda Civic has been around a few years longer, and has taken the cake as the best-selling passenger car the last seventeen years in a row, the Honda Accord has never been very far behind. Originally introduced in 1976, the Honda Accord has been one of the most recognizable Honda vehicles for several decades. Through the years it only continues to improve and change for the better, and the makeover it underwent for 2016 is truly exciting. We thought we’d compare it to one of its biggest rivals by taking a look at the 2016 Honda Accord vs 2016 Nissan Maxima.
Advantages of the 2016 Honda Accord
While the Honda Accord and Nissan Maxima are looked at as fairly comparable vehicles, the table above shows just how superior the 2016 Accord is to its so-called competition. Sure, some might opt for the Maxima because they like its style better. But is it really worth a 2 l/100km city fuel efficiency deficit, or a nearly as steep 1.4 l/100km highway fuel efficiency disadvantage? Judging by the table above, there is no competing with the Honda Accord in terms of fuel economy.
So turning instead to space and capacity, let’s first take a look at passenger volume. Look at the two number next to each other might not jump out at you that much, but that is an extra 6.1 cubic feet of space for you and your passengers to stretch out a bit more and get comfortable in. The cargo capacity advantage might not be quite as wide, but you’re still giving up a cubic foot and a half of space that could accommodate another small cooler or backpack for your journey. We think the superior vehicle is obvious in this comparison, so if you’d like to schedule a test drive online just fill out the form below.
