The lines between car classes seems to get blurrier and more indecipherable every day. This
has led to even more vehicles joining the mid-size class of car. While the class has been inundated and oversaturated with so-so car choices, one vehicle continues to rise above the rest. The Altima has
consistently set itself apart from its peers with Nissan's trademarks: superior mechanical construction and a
bounty of standard features. Some of the stiffest competition the Altima is facing is coming Hyundai's
Sonata. Here is a comparison of the 2016 Nissan Altima vs 2016 Hyundai Sonata to help
make buying decisions a little simpler.
One huge reason that the Altima has continued to be popular with car driver's despite customer ever-changing tastes is its adaptability. Fuel economy, which was once an after thought with many customers is now one of the chief pieces of criteria used in determining which is vehicle is the ideal one.
Whether for the benefit of the environment or their own budget, fuel-efficient cars are "in" now.
The Altima represents a great choice for car shoppers looking to curb their fuel consumption. With a higher fuel economy, the Altima is an efficiency force with which to be reckoned. The Hyundai Sonata is solid as well but it fails to deliver up to Altima standards.
Performance numbers are often used as guidelines in deciding which vehicle should be chosen. Both the 2016 Nissan Altima and Hyundai Sonata are incredibly similar when it comes to power outputs. The Sonata generates slightly more horsepower at 185 as opposed to the Altima's 182.
But the Altima edges the Sonata when it comes to torque by a 180 pound-feet to 178 pound-feet margin.
In all the vehicles perform nearly identically according to engine specifications.
Sometimes it is the small subtleties that make all the difference when picking a car. Details such as
having a keyless ignition, which the Altima has, may be what sets the Nissan model over the top the
Sonata, which does not have keyless ignition as a feature. Ultimately, it comes down to buying a vehicle
which has the most things going for it. In this case, it is definitely the 2016Nissan Altima. Come check
