Which Japanese Midsize Sedan Stands Out?

While more and more consumers have made the switch from sedans to SUVs, automakers have been working to make the once-ubiquitous family vehicle better than before. Midsize sedans offer more advanced technology, convenience features, and performance than ever. Two options that have always been popular in the midsize sedan segment are the Honda Accord and the Nissan Altima.

These two sedans are excellent options for families, as they’re both practical, packed with advanced safety features, and strong value choices. The 2020 Accord and the 2020 Altima are also more enjoyable to drive than past generations, and when compared to the majority of SUVs, offer much better handling and straight-line performance. For consumers that tend to encounter inclement weather, last year’s redesign saw the Altima receive all-wheel drive as an option.

To help you decide between the two vehicles, we’ve pitted the two midsize sedans against one another using data from our reviews. Price, performance, interior comfort, reliability, and more have been examined to name one winner.

Since U.S. News scores are routinely updated as new data comes out, some of the scores in this article may not match the ones found in our individual rankings or reviews.
