The 2017 Nissan Altima and the Honda Civic are two of the most popular four-door sedans on the market today, and their popularity makes them easy choices for buyers. So which of these gives you the best vehicle for your budget? Let's put them side-by-side and see which one comes out on top.
2017 Nissan Altima vs Honda Civic
Interior Comfort & Quality
If the exterior is unassuming, the interior of the Altima is anything but. Overall it's very comfortable, and the quality of the materials and trim is better than much of the competition. You'll find plenty of cargo capacity in the trunk, and rear seat passengers have room to stretch out quite nicely. Acoustic glass and better sound deadening add to the premium feel of the Altima's cabin, which now feels like a vehicle that costs quite a bit more.
Although the Nissan is almost ten inches longer than the Civic, the Honda's interior dimensions have grown close to what the Altima has to offer. The dash is modern and stylish, although some of the ergonomics leave a little to be desired. The Nissan does offer more room and a more premium feel inside though, so it takes the win here.
