Sticker prices can be misleading. Case in point: the 2019 Honda Accord Sedan vs. 2020 Nissan Maxima. A huge price difference might lead you to believe that the Maxima easily trounces the Accord, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. If you’re asking, “Honda Accord or Maxima?” as you search for your next Walla Walla sedan, this Walla Walla Valley Honda side-by-side comparison of both below will help you see that the Accord is more efficient and spacious—and for a lot less.

Starting MSRP

For most family car shoppers around College Place, affordability is something that comes to mind when searching for a sedan. The 2019 Honda Accord Sedan is an incredibly accessible midsize sedan with a starting MSRP of $23,720* for the Accord LX 1.5T, despite its wonderfully tech-filled interior. The 2020 Nissan Maxima full-size sedan, on the other hand, is a much more expensive model, featuring a costly starting price of $34,250 MSRP. So when you want to save more up front, the Accord is the obvious way to go.

Fuel Economy

If you opt for the Honda Accord’s base 1.5L VTEC® turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and available continuously variable transmission (CVT), you’ll get up to an impressive EPA-estimated 30 mpg city and 38 mpg highway** on Tri-Cities streets. Compare that to the 2020 Nissan Maxima, which is only offered with a 3.5L V6 engine that logs an EPA-estimated 20 mpg city and 30 mpg highway.

Passenger and Cargo Space

When it comes to comfortably seating passengers and filling the trunk with luggage for a journey to Kennewick, the 2019 Honda Accord Sedan again pulls ahead of the 2020 Nissan Maxima. The Accord interior can seat up to five adults comfortably with a maximum passenger volume of 105.6 cubic feet. There’s also a large trunk measuring 16.7 cubic feet for all of your luggage.

The Maxima, on the other hand, can also seat five, but it’s more cramped with a maximum passenger volume of only 98.5 cubic feet. Additionally, you’ll much more quickly run out of room in the trunk with 14.3 cubic feet for storage. In fact, even perennial favorites like the Toyota Camry can’t match the Honda Accord’s roomy interior!
