Comparison Test – 2008 Honda Accord Coupe vs. 2008 Nissan Altima Coupe: Serve your inner wild child – drive a coupe.
Though not exactly synonymous with debauchery, coupes make a statement distinct from their family-friendly, four-door counterparts. Parents and all who favor the practical keep sedans selling, but what of the offspring-free or single 20-somethings? For these shoppers there’s the Nissan Altima Coupe and Honda Accord Coupe, each aiming to balance style with practicality. We ran them head-to-head, selecting models with big V-6s and manual transmissions to up the wild quotient and decided either would make most any childless bachelor happy, yet the Honda would do so more consistently.
