Standard Safety and Convenience Features on the 2018 Nissan Altima

In this 2018 Nissan Altima vs 2018 Honda Civic comparison, the Nissan model has a higher starting price than the Honda compact sedan, but it also offers a number of attractive standard features that are available on the 2018 Honda Civic, but would require a price jump. The 2018 Honda Civic comes standard with a six-speed manual transmission, while the 2018 Nissan Altima has a practical Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) on all models. The 2018 Altima also has six speakers instead of the Honda’s four. However, one of the most practical advantages that you get on every model of the 2018 Nissan Altima is its crash prevention features. Forward Collision Warning and Emergency Braking come on all 2018 Altima sedans. While this feature is no substitute for an attentive driver, it can help prevent accidents. In contrast, the 2018 Honda Civic is available with the Honda Sensing suite of safety features, but it does not come standard with these advantages.
