As you can see, both car models offer drivers a lot in the way of value. However, when you compare the data against each other directly, it becomes clear that the 2018 Nissan Altima holds the edge over its Acura competitor.

It all starts with the two model's MSRP, perhaps the biggest difference between the two. The 2018 Nissan Altima is nearly $10,000 more affordable than the 2018 Acura TLX. Think how nice it would be to have an extra $10,000 in your bank account after purchasing a new car!

You might think that the 2018 Acura TLX would then offer more because of its higher price. But, not only does the 2018 Nissan Altima get better fuel-efficiency (once again saving you more money), but it also offers more space for you and your passengers, making for a roomier and more comfortable interior.

Another big advantage the 2018 Nissan Altima has is it's an IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK, meaning it's one of the safest vehicles on the road today. The 2018 Acura TLX did not receive such recognition. The 2018 Nissan Altima also features some of the latest in advanced safety and driver-assist technology. Available features include:

  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert 

  • Blind Spot Warning 

  • Intelligent Forward Collision Warning 

  • Automatic Emergency Braking 

  • Intelligent Cruise Control 

  • Rearview Monitor
