2015 Nissan Altima & Honda Civic Vehicle Comparison

Comparing two different vehicles is one of the best ways to help you make a decision when you’re in the market for a new automobile. Two popular cars that are making headlines right now – the 2015 Nissan Altima and 2015 Honda Civic – are a pretty darn good match. But, of course, there are definitely some differences that may tip the scales by showing the superiority of one vehicle over another. So which one is the better vehicle? To understand that, let’s break it down to a few categories.

Exterior Appearance

When the compare the exterior of the 2015 Nissan Altima and 2015 Honda Civic, the winner will depend on your personal design preference. The Altima has sleek lines and a bold appearance, one that could even be called regal. The Civic, on the other hand, features a sportier look. We’ll leave the winner of this category up to you.

Interior Design

The interior of the 2015 Nissan Altima is one of the nicest you’re going to find in its class, in part because of the extremely comfortable Zero Gravity front seats. It’s also constructed with a modern, well-built interior with high-quality materials. The 2015 Honda Civic is comfortable as well, but the Altima definitely trumps it. As for space, the Altima’s rear seat is a bit low on its head room while the Civic doesn’t have a big cargo area. Since these two pretty much cancel each other one, we’ll go to the comfortability of the seats. Which means that the Altima is the winner here.

Overall Performance

Both the 2015 Nissan Altima and 2015 Honda Civic feature a nice amount of acceleration even with their base 4-cylinder engines. Each car also has an optional addition that improves its performance – a V6 engine for the Altima and CVT (continuously variable transmission) for the Civic. Each vehicle also enjoys a smooth ride, but the Altima definitely has superior handling according to many drivers. For that reason, the Altima bests its competition here as well.

The best fuel efficiency for the 2015 Nissan Altima is achieved with its base 4-cylinder model, clocking in at 27 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway. Although this is quite good, the 2015 Honda Civic is able to squeeze out 30 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway. Which means that the Civic is the victor in this category.

Standard and Optional Features

We all love to have a bunch of options in our vehicles and neither the 2015 Nissan Altima or 2015 Honda Civic disappoints. Standard features for the Altima include Bluetooth connectivity and push-button start while the Civic comes with a rearview camera and Bluetooth.

The Civic can be upgraded to include navigation, a multiple-angle rearview camera, power moonroof, and automatic climate control.
