The 2019 Nissan Altima combines futuristic technology with modern style. This year, the highly versatile sedan is equipped with an intelligent all-wheel driving system that is able to continuously monitor the road conditions and automatically switches between front wheel drive and all-wheel drive.  It also comes standard with a powerful, yet fuel-efficient, the engine that makes driving this car more convenient and fun.

The 2019 Honda Civic has a sporty exterior style. And while it also has an athletic drive train, it is not very versatile. The Civic only has front wheel drive available on all of its trim levels, making it harder to control in hazardous weather.

So, how else does the Civic differ from the Altima? Here is a complete comparison of the 2019 Nissan Altima and the 2019 Honda Civic.

Interior Styling

The inside of the Altima was obviously built with comfort and convenience in mind. The driver's seat is specially made to contour to the driver's body and hold them tight during sharp turns. The available Zero Gravity seats are also specially designed to help reduce fatigue during long trips. Another convenient feature is the 8-inch touchscreen display that looks as if it is floating low on the dash. This helps to ensure that it is in the driver's line of sight so that they can quickly glance at the display without taking their eyes off the road for too long. For an added level of convenience, the Altima also an available Nissan Door to Door Navigation System. This system seamlessly transfers your navigation rout from your car's display to your phone. So, if you have to park a few blocks ways from your destination, the navigation system will still be with you to make sure that you are able to find where you are going.

The Civic has a low sitting display as well, however, Apple Car Play and Android Auto are not available on all trim levels. And there is no navigation option that is able to send directions to your phone.


The 2019 Nissan Altima was awarded The Highest Safety Pick by the IIHS. For a safer driving experience, the Altima comes with Nissan Intelligent Mobility. This safety system includes Intelligent forward collision warning, Intelligent Lane Intervention, Intelligent Blind Spot Warning, and Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection.

Power and Efficiency

The Altima has a slightly more powerful engine than the Civic. The 2.5 litre DOHC I-4 engine delivers greater horsepower and torque than the Civic does.
