2015 Nissan Altima vs Mazda6 vs Ford Fusion vs Honda Accord

How do you choose a four-door sedan when there are so many options out there? If you know the 2015 Altima 2.5, it's not competition but the little things that make the Altima stand out against the 2015 Mazda6 i Sport, 2015 Ford Fusion S, and the 2015 Honda Accord LX. If you won't take our word for it, come on in to Pohanka Nissan of Fredericksburg and see for yourself.

Now, it's the little things that set the Altima apart from the Mazda6, Fusion, and Accord, but there is one big difference here: fuel economy. When it comes to the Altima, it's no contest. With its 2.5L 4-cylinder engine and XTRONIC Continuously Variable Transmission® (CVT), the 2015 Nissan Altima nets you 27 city and 38 highway miles per gallon1, edging out the Mazda6 and blowing away the Accord. This is due in part to the aforementioned CVT, an innovative feat of engineering. By reducing the transmission's weight and length, and also lessening friction by 40%, the CVT accelerates faster, runs quieter, and increases fuel efficiency by 15%. That's quite a feat.

Now, with the big things out of the way, we can get to the little things that make the Altima great. For starters the Altima and Fusion come standard with an automatic transmission, while the Mazda6 and Accord charge you more to upgrade from the manual transmission. Next, you have the Proximity Key with ignition only function, which, while available on the Mazda6, is not even standard on the Fusion or Accord. The audio system also has differences that give you just a little more. You receive a first row liquid-crystal display (LCD) monitor, something not available on the Mazda6. You also get a six-speaker audio system, while the Fusion and Accord only have a four-speaker system. The Mazda6 and Fusion don't offer you the Radio Data System (RDS), a nice feature that gives you the name of the station and the artist/song in the audio display. With connectivity in your vehicle is a standard these days, it's hard to believe the Mazda6 does not have wireless technology capabilities or Bluetooth® technology. It even comes down to the little touches, like an illuminated glove box or rear reading lights, two things not available on the Honda Accord. Similarly, the Fusion doesn't offer you something as simple as door curb/courtesy lights. It really is the little things that make all the difference.

While the big features may be similar, it's the little things that matter most. With the 2015 Nissan Altima, the little things add up to something big - comfort and convenience for you. When you compare the 2015 Nissan Altima 2.5 to the 2015 Mazda6 i Sport, 2015 Ford Fusion S, and 2015 Honda LX, you can see what matters most; you. Come in and see the all-new Altima at Pohanka Nissan of Fredericksburg today!
