The Nissan Altima utilizes timing-chain-driven camshafts, as opposed to timing belts, to provide precise and reliable actuation of camshafts. Timing chains do not need scheduled maintenance inspections or replacement, unlike the timing belt on the V6 engine of the Honda Accord. Save the time and money you would usually spend on servicing your timing belt by driving off the lot with a new 2017 Altima.

The Altima has Active Understeer Control as well, which helps improve turn-in function and decrease understeer by gingerly applying brake pressure to the wheels on the inside of the turn when going around a corner. The 2017 Honda Accord fails to offer this feature.

Your Nissan Altima also offers an available heated steering wheel grip, which provides comfort in colder areas. This feature is not available in the 2017 Honda Accord. Altima’s customizable color display in the middle of the instrument gauge cluster gives the driver easy recognition of vehicle information and warnings. Accord’s instrument gauge cluster shows limited trip computer information in only black and white. While the Altima has available rear cross-traffic alerts to help you know what is behind you at all times, the Accord does not. You will also find more headroom and legroom in the Altima.
