Powered by the signature Variable Compression Turbo engine, the 2024 Nissan Altima is more capable than most midsize sedans in North America. The 2024 Honda Accord’s turbo engine and hybrid system are less powerful than the VC-Turbo engine. You’ll also get more unique active safety features from the Nissan Safety Shield 360 suite.

Performance Features

Performance Features

The 2024 Nissan Altima extracts 248 horsepower from the unique VC-Turbo engine block. Engineered to compress fuel at a wide range of ratios, this four-cylinder powertrain develops 273 pound-feet of torque. The 2024 Honda Accord’s standard 1.5-L turbo engine only produces 192 net hp and 192 lb-ft of torque. This I-4 powerhouse compresses gas at a fixed ratio of 10.6:1. When needed, the VC-Turbo engine can produce much lower or higher ratios for optimal performance on the road. If you upgrade to a hybrid powertrain for the Honda sedan, you won’t get significant increases in horsepower or torque. In fact, even the Accord’s traction motor produces less torque than the VC-Turbo engine. When rolling on the Intelligent AWD, the midsize Nissan sedan gets a good grip on wet pavement. Unfortunately, the Accord’s standard FWD system loses some traction in adverse weather conditions. You’ll love some of the 2024 Altima’s sporty mechanical technologies, including the Intelligent Trace Control for tight corners and sharp curves. Likewise, the Active Ride Control minimizes discomfort during a drive on rough roadways. Riding on twin-tube front struts and monotube rear shocks, this premium Nissan model isn’t bothered by ruts, bumps, and other imperfections on the way. A dual-pinion power steering system also helps you handle this midsize Nissan sedan with even more precision.

Technology Features

Technology Features

Standing prominently on the 2024 Nissan Altima’s dashboard, the 12.3-inch infotainment system is better than ever. You will see preferred apps and widgets on the split menus in real-time. When you step away from this midsize sedan, you should check the myNissan app for remote connections and diagnostics. Of course, the latest NissanConnect services include additional technological utilities, like traffic feeds and concierges. Similarly, the 2024 Honda Accord has a multimedia monitor that measures 12.3 inches. However, you will get fewer digital apps from the HondaLink suite. Additionally, the Hello Nissan and Siri Eyes Free technologies give the Altima more bragging rights in the high-tech department.

Safety Features

Safety Features

Powered by the iconic Safety Shield 360 technology, the 2024 Altima’s crash-avoidance systems have evolved tremendously over the generations. This midsize sedan includes the standard Rear Automatic Braking, Rear Sonar Sensors, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert for superb awareness of surrounding obstacles. You should look closely at the RearView Monitor when reversing the gearbox. Most models offer the enhanced Intelligent Around View Monitor with additional views. You simply won’t get as many advanced visual cues from the 2024 Accord’s standard Multi-Angle Rearview Camera. The acclaimed Honda Sensing bundle still can’t match some of the 2024 Altima’s unique driver-assistance features, like the ProPILOT ASSIST and Intelligent Lane Intervention.
