The Altima and Civic are two of the most prevalent vehicles in the country, and it makes sense based on the excellent features they have to offer. Both come standard with four-cylinder engines that provide ample horsepower for everyday driving, or drivers can opt for V6 powertrains on the higher Altima trims
for even more strength.
Both the 2016 Nissan Maxima and Honda Civic offer
exceptional performance, even at the base level.
The base Altima comes equipped with a 180
horsepower 2.5 liter inline four-cylinder engine.
This engine delivers 180 lb-ft of torque to the front wheels via a smooth shifting, fuel efficient continuously
variable transmission. The Altima is also available with a 270 hp 3.5 liter V6 that develops 251 lb-ft of torque.
When it comes to interior space, the Altima offers
39.1 inches of headroom in the front and 45.0
inches of legroom. Thanks to more headroom in
the rear seat area, taller passengers, including
adults, will find the Altima to be a much better
choice whether you are looking for a comfortable
commuter car or one for long family.
Buyers will find the interior of the 2016 Altima offers superior quality materials and a standard 5-inch
touchscreen for the infotainment system. There is also an available 7-inch touchscreen upgrade that
makes everything easier to read. The Civic base model also comes with a 5-inch touchscreen with an
available 7-inch screen in upper trim packages.
