2016 Honda AccordThe 2016 Nissan Altima standard features probably have a leg up on some midsize sedans, but if you put it up against all of the competition in the Hampton Roads area, we think you’ll find some better-equipped models. Like the 2016 Honda Accord.

Available now at Hampton Roads Honda Dealers, the Accord Sedan offers six trim levels, but even the basic LX has a suite of advanced tech and safety features that put Honda’s car in a different league than the Altima. Let’s take a look.

The Accord Is Setting a New Standard

Just a few years ago many Hampton Roads drivers expected little more than power locks and accessories as standard amenities on their new vehicles; much beyond that would usually require a package or trim level upgrade. Honda has been changing that, though, with vehicles like the Accord setting a new standard for “standard features.”

On each 2016 Honda Accord LX Sedan, you’ll find features like:

  • Multi-angle rearview camera for peace of mind when in reverse
  • Bluetooth HandsFreeLink to stream audio and make phone calls
  • Eco Assist features that let you focus on fuel conservation
  • Lightweight and durable alloy wheels

While the 2016 Nissan Altima standard features do have some comparable amenities, in order for you to put it on similar footing to the Accord, it would need to be upgraded past the basic 2.5 trim level.

Drivers looking to get more can find classic luxury features like leather upholstery and heated seating as well as advanced connectivity and tech features like a satellite-linked navigation system at higher trim levels. Upgrading the Altima a trim level or two simply puts it where the Accord starts off.

Test Drive an Accord

We think the best way for you to see what makes the 2016 Honda Accord so special is to get behind the wheel and experience it for yourself. Visit a Hampton Roads Honda Dealer near you today and take the Accord for a test drive. We think you’ll agree that it’s got quite a few advantages that place it firmly out of the reach of the 2016 Nissan Altima standard features.
