There’s a great selection of 2016 Altima models in stock at Dave Smith Nissan, serving the cities of Spokane Valley and Country Homes, WA, Post Falls and Coeur d'Alene, ID.

Let’s see how the 2016 Nissan Altima compares to its rival from Honda, the Accord.
The 2016 Nissan Altima and the Honda Accord both come equipped with a standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, and with similar power output too. Even while both mid-size sedans can be equipped with a CVT continuously variable transmission, the Nissan Altima wins the fuel economy battle, with an EPA-estimated 27 city and 39 highway mpg rating. With a similar powertrain setup, the Accord only manages to achieve a 27 city and 37 highway mpg EPA-estimated rating. The Nissan Altima’s 2 mpg advantage in highway driving is a big advantage, made even larger when you consider the fact that the Altima also has a large fuel tank than the Accord. Imagine, you’ll continue to cruise right along the interstate in your Nissan Altima, while Accord drivers are pulling off the exit to refuel. When fuel efficiency matters in your mid-size sedan purchase decision, get into a 2016 Nissan Altima, at Dave Smith Nissan in Spokane, WA.
Mid-size sedans have a bad reputation; they’re often considered bland vehicles with little style, that are not enjoyable to drive. They certainly have the reputation of placing practicality above all else. Well, none of that is true with the redesigned 2016 Nissan Altima mid-size sedan. The stunning design of the new Altima makes you think twice about even calling it a mid-size sedan. It’s way too sporty and exciting to be lumped into the category with the dull but practical Honda Accord, right? The 2016 Altima not only has a stylish exterior that you’d like to be seen driving around in - it’s also a blast to drive! Honda’s Accord, on the other hand, is certainly less inspiring, from its exterior and interior design, to its driving dynamics. It’s not a bad mid-size sedan, but it’s just not going to wow you from behind the wheel – or when you look at it parked in your driveway. With the 2016 Nissan Altima, gone are the days when you had to choose between practicality and that fun-to-drive feeling. If you want a thrilling and inspiring drive in a mid-size sedan, choose the 2016 Nissan Altima!
The Nissan Altima has a reputation for being one of the best values in the mid-size sedan class, and the 2016 model is no exception -- especially when you compare its standard features to the competition. Drivers who choose a base 2016 Accord LX will not find many of the 2016 Altima’s desirable standard features like a proximity key with push button start, cargo tie downs, locking and illuminated glove box, leatherette door trim, and rear reading lights. Can you believe that none of those features come as standard equipment on the Honda Accord? Even the CVT transmission, that’s standard on the 2016 Altima, will cost you an additional $800 on the base Honda Accord LX! The 2016 Altima with CVT starts at an MSRP of $22,500; the Accord CVT starts at $22,905, and you’d have to pay far more to get all of the features that come standard on the Nissan Altima. If you want to drive a well-equipped mid-size sedan that’s a great value for your money, the 2016 Nissan Altima is your best bet!
Can you guess which of these popular mid-size sedans offers more interior room for drivers and passengers alike? You guessed it, the 2016 Nissan Altima! The Altima trumps the Accord in front legroom, rear legroom, front headroom, making the 2016 Altima an excellent choice for taller drivers/passengers, or really anyone who wants to have a chance to stretch out a bit.
