Both the Maxima and the Accord offer powerful engine options that are well suited for daily driving. The Maxima comes with a standard 3.5L V6 engine that delivers 300 horsepower. Equipped with the Xtronic CVT® (continuously variable transmission), the Maxima rewards its drivers with a smooth yet lively ride.
As for the Accord, it comes with a turbocharged 1.5L 4-cylinder engine, which generates 192 horsepower—significantly less power than the Maxima and its 3.5L V6. It does get a boost in power with the available turbocharged 2.0L engine, but it still only produces 252 horsepower.
The Maxima and the Accord each provide seating for up to five people on standard cloth upholstery and power-adjustable seats. Heated and leather-trimmed seats are available in both models to enhance the comfort, but the Maxima adds ventilated seating, leather upholstery, and a heated steering wheel. The headroom and legroom are abundant in both vehicles as well.
Plus, the Nissan Maxima comes standard with the Advanced Drive-Assist® Display, a 7-inch color screen that projects useful information, such as turn-by-turn directions and safety alerts, in your line of vision. With his neat addition, you don’t have to look down at your phone or center display screen to view vital information—it’s right in front of your eyes.
The Honda Accord does offer a similar feature, the Head-Up Display, but you’ll have to upgrade to a higher trim level to have it.
The Maxima and the Accord are both filled with state-of-the-art technology features to keep you entertained and comfortable on the road. The Maxima comes standard with the following features:
- SiriusXM® Radio: With over 100 music stations, talk shows, sports broadcasts, and more, you’ll be entertained on every commute!
- Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™: Easily sync your compatible smartphone with the Maxima’s infotainment system to access your contacts, messages, and apps.
- NissanConnect® with an 8-inch touchscreen display: On this large screen, you can access and explore your various apps and features.
- 8-speaker audio system: Hear your favorite artists in crystal-clear sound to have an in-car concert.
- Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant: Keep your eyes on the road and hands on wheel, even as you respond to your text messages.
Although the Honda Accord comes with similarly impressive features, you’ll have to upgrade to a higher trim level to attain them. On the base level of the Honda Accord, you’ll find a 4-speaker audio system, a 7-inch touchscreen display, and Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink. To have Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, SiriusXM® Radio, and an 8-inch display, you’ll need to choose a higher Accord trim level.
