If you’re shopping for a new car on a budget, you might be intrigued by the 2015 Nissan Altima price, but when you compare it to a competing model like the 2015 Honda Accord Coupe, we think you’ll find Nissan’s mid-size car lacking in features. The Altima is priced starting at $22,300 while the 2015 Honda Accord Coupe LX-S with 6MT has a price of $23,775 (MSRP),* but if you wanted to outfit the Altima with similar features to the entry-level Accord, you would need to make some costly upgrades.
Just what kinds of amenities set these two mid-size cars apart? We’re glad you asked.
Comparing the Features
Once you get past the 2015 Nissan Altima price, we think you’ll see that the Accord Coupe is simply a much better equipped car. 2015 Honda Accord Coupe LX-S CVT models come with the following features that require either an upgrade or are not even available on the Altima:
- Steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters
- Six-speaker stereo with CD player and USB audio
- 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system
- Rearview camera with guidelines
- Pandora internet radio connectivity
- SMS texting integration
If you want to equip an Altima with this same level of technology, you will have to upgrade past the Altima 2.5 S, the 3.5 S, and the 2.5 SV to the Altima 2.5 SL. And even after those upgrades, you will need to add on the Convenience Package to the Altima 2.5 SL just to have it comparable to the entry-level Accord LX-S.
Honda has made a name for themselves as the brand that has redefined what the “standard” in “standard features” means, and you can see it on display right here on the Accord LX-S. Don’t forget that the Accord LX Sedan is loaded with the latest in modern technology as well, if you’d prefer the four-door style.
