Honda Accord

Drivers in Vista, Escondido, and Carlsbad who are looking for a new sedan will want to make sure the model they choose has everything they need. This includes efficient performance, a comfortable interior, and safety systems ready to help when needed.

To see which car between the 2020 Honda Accord and Nissan Maxima provides you with that combination, our Norm Reeves Honda Superstore Vista compared these two sedans below.

Which Car is More Efficient?

Honda AccordOne thing all drivers like to know is their car is giving them the best possible performance, especially in terms of fuel usage. While sedans often offer the most fuel-efficient performance, these two particular sedans differ in how much fuel they will use just getting you to and from the office.

With the Nissan Maxima, you will have a car that is able to get 20 city/30 highway MPG. The 2020 Honda Accord does much better than the Maxima when it comes to conserving fuel, which ultimately saves you trips to the gas station.

With the LX, EX, and EX-L trim levels, the Honda Accord gets an EPA-estimated 30 city/38 highway MPG.1 Whether you are just running errands around town or hitting the open road for a longer trip, the 2020 Accord will use less fuel than the Maxima.

Interior Space of the Honda Accord vs Nissan Maxima

Honda AccordAnother difference you’ll notice between these two cars is the amount of room they give you inside. When you open the doors of the 2020 Accord, you will be welcomed with a great deal of space. Among its five seats, there is 105.6 cubic feet of passenger space.

Meanwhile, the Nissan Maxima has 98.5 cubic feet of passenger space for its five seats to share. This extra room means your passengers in the back will have more space to spread out and get comfortable in the Honda Accord. Its rear seats are provided with 37.3 inches of headroom and 40.4 inches of legroom. The 2020 Maxima is a little more squeezed in the back with 36.7 inches of headroom and 34.2 inches of legroom.

On top of that, the 2020 Honda Accord also gives you 16.7 cubic feet of space in the trunk to carry a range of supplies. The 2020 Maxim has 14.3 cubic feet of cargo volume in its trunk, which limits what you will be able to transport with this sedan.

Technology That Makes Your Drive Safer

Honda AccordEach of these vehicles offers a range of technologies that can help you stay safe while driving. This includes voice-recognition technology to stay focused on the road when putting on a playlist or making a phone call.

They also each have various driver-assistive features that can alert you when the car in front of you slows down or you start to drift outside the lines of your lane. The Honda Accord also comes with the Traffic Sign Recognition System, which can keep you aware of the rules of the road. This feature is only available in higher trim levels of the 2020 Nissan Maxima.

Only the Honda Accord offers the Head-Up Display, too. This shows you a range of information right on your windshield so you can know your speed, the next turn you need to make, or who is calling without having to take your eyes of the road.
