2019 Nissan Altima vs Honda Civic
When choosing the right vehicle for your lifestyle, your priorities may revolve around qualities like safety, interior comfort, and powerful performance. Between the 2019 Nissan Altima and 2019 Honda Civic, you can find a great deal of all these things.
However, which sedan can offer drivers in the Cherry Hill, Mount Laurel, and Collingswood areas the most of each? In this 2019 Nissan Altima vs. Honda Civic comparison, our team at Cherry Hill Nissan will show you.
Designed for Safety
When the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) begins testing a car, it’s looking at how protected you and your passengers will be in the event of a collision. It also looks at how effective the available safety technologies are at preventing collisions from happening in the first place.
While the 2019 Honda Civic offers a lot of safety features, they’re not enough to earn it an award from the IIHS. The Nissan Altima, meanwhile, earned the title of 2019 TOP SAFETY PICK in recognition of its crashworthiness and collision prevention.
The Altima received this commendation in part because of its standard Automatic Emergency Braking, which can help prevent frontal collisions or reduce their impact. This sedan also makes it easy to see at night thanks to available LED projector headlights.
The Honda Civic also includes Automatic Emergency Braking as part of its standard safety technologies. However, its headlight options provide inadequate illumination of the road ahead, especially when you’re going around a corner.

2019 Nissan Altima vs 2019 Honda Civic: Interior
When it comes to interior space, the Honda Civic simply cannot compare with the Nissan Altima. While the Altima includes 100.8 cubic feet of passenger space, the Civic only offers 97.8.
This size difference is most noticeable in the rear seats, which provide 54.5 inches of hip room in the Altima. Your passengers will feel much more cramped in the back of the Civic, which only offers 47.3 inches of hip room.
The Nissan Altima doesn’t just offer more space. It also offers more conveniences. For instance, when it comes to plugging in your devices, the Altima includes two USB type C ports in addition to its two standard USB ports. The Civic only offers one standard USB port, and doesn’t provide any USB type C ports.
The Honda Civic attempts to make up for its lack of space with extra technology. However, the majority of what it offers as upgrades also come standard in the competition. This includes Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, and remote engine start.
Admittedly, we all sometimes enjoy pressing on the gas and seeing just how fast our car can go. The turbocharged 4-cylinder available under the hood of the 2019 Honda Civic will get you far with a zippy 174 horsepower.
Unfortunately, it won’t be able to keep up with the 188-horsepower 4-cylinder that comes standard in the 2019 Nissan Altima. Then, when you upgrade to the VC-Turbo™ available in the Altima, the thrills increase with an impressive 236 horsepower that will really leave the Civic in the dust.
There’s No Need to Downgrade
At Cherry Hill Nissan, we truly believe that our Cherry Hill, Mount Laurel, and Collingswood customers deserve to get the most bang for their buck. When you choose the 2019 Honda Civic, you’re choosing to downsize.
Choosing the 2019 Nissan Altima, on the other hand, is choosing more: more power, more safety, and more interior comforts. If you’d like to experience this for yourself, just contact us to schedule your test drive today!
