2018 Nissan Maxima vs 2018 Honda Accord in Milford, MA

2018 Nissan Maxima vs 2018 Honda Accord in Milford, MA2018 Nissan Maxima shown in Super Black with optional features. 

At Milford Nissan, we know that there are a lot of sedans out there, but we have the perfect option for you — the 2018 Nissan Maxima. From the amazing performance to the interior amenities, you’ll want to be the one cruising around in this vehicle day in and day out. To help you understand why this vehicle rises above the competition, we put it head-to-head against the 2018 Honda Accord. After reading this, you’ll understand why the Maxima takes home the gold medal. If you wish to speak with one of our representatives, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 774-462-3001!

Performance Capabilities

Before we jump into anything else, let’s begin by comparing the mechanical features that get these two sedans in motion. Lying beneath the sheet metal in the Maxima is the standard 3.5L V6 engine that churns out an unforgettable 300-hp and an ultimately peppy 261 lb.-ft. of torque for a fun-filled drive down Route 16. Additionally, you’ll have a front brake rotor diameter by thickness of 12.6 inches that allows you to come to a quick halt when you’re dealing with stop-and-go traffic after a long day at the office. Unfortunately, the Accord can’t compare, since it only achieves a measly 192-hp and 192 lb.-ft. of torque with its standard 1.5L I-4 powertrain. Not to mention, when you need to stop at a red light, it might take this vehicle a tad more time, since it only puts forth a front brake rotor diameter by thickness of 11.1 inches, proving that the Maxima takes the lead in this segment! 

Interior

To continue, we need to examine the interior features that both of these vehicles bring to the table. You’ll be glad to know the Maxima comes equipped with eight speakers, so you can jam out to all of your favorite playlists with concert-quality sound. We know that stretching out to your utmost comfortability is of importance when choosing a vehicle and luckily, the 2018 Maxima delivers. This vehicle comes standard with 45 inches of front legroom, so you and your copilot never have to feel cramped on those long road trips. On the other hand, the Honda Accord only comes standard with four speakers, so you won’t get the same audio experience that you receive in the Maxima. Sadly, you’ll only have a less-than-satisfying 42.3 inches of front legroom in this vehicle, so you might have to do some stretching when you step out of this vehicle, making weekend getaways a hassle.

What’s the holdup? Now that you know why the Maxima takes home the cake in this 2018 Nissan Maxima vs 2018 Honda Accord in Milford, MA, comparison, it’s time to join one of our staff members here at Milford Nissan for a test drive that’s one for the books. We’re conveniently located at 320 East Main Street in Milford, MA, so stop by during our business hours!

Just all around excellent to deal with. No games, no high pressure sales tactics. Was able to do an end-of-lease purchase spending less than an hour total between phone calls and dealership visits. Eric P in financing was excellent, business-like, and supremely honest. I can not recommend them highly enough.

I couldn’t be happier with my purchase of a used 2017 Nissan leaf. Milford Nissan’s Staff —especially Chris and Guy were incredibly informative, helpful, accommodating and responsive along the entire process. I live in New Hampshire and have a very busy schedule – on top of the coronavirus situation-they helped me do the entire purchase onlineAnd over the phone and even brought the car to me at my town hall to finalize everything! I would wholeheartedly recommend this dealership to my friends and family.

I never knew a car-buying experience could actually be enjoyable! Jan Janiek was absolutely wonderful to work with. Unlike other dealerships, the folks at Milford Nissan made me feel comfortable and valued as a customer. I never felt pressured or rushed; I love that they didn't feel the need to "play the game" when negotiating, which is a tremendous relief! Jan gave me a full personalized tutorial of my new vehicle to make sure I felt comfortable with all the new features. I could tell that his customers' safety and satisfaction is a top priority. Thank you, Jan! I am very happy to be a part of the Milford Nissan family.

Wonderful experience! Easiest time I've ever had trading in my lease. Sales associate was extremely professional and knowledgeable of the merchandise. Had a vehicle ready and waiting for me to test drive when I got there. Once I got to signing, everything was smooth sailing. Very pleased with the deal I got and will be going back!

We recently bought a 2020 Nissan Armada from Tony Chamoun, General Manager. He was a dream to deal with. We are from out of state and this was our first time buying an online vehicle. Tony put us at ease on this purchase. He facetimes us to show us the vehicle. He was extremely great at communicating with us and keeping us informed on all the steps in buying the vehicle, receiving our money and transportation of the vehicle. I highly recommend Tony and his team at Milford Nissan. I dealt briefly with Jim Farrell, Sales Associate and he was extremely helpful and knowledgeable too. Great job Milford Nissan. We love our vehicle and you made the process seamless.

As a recent satisfied customer, I can’t say enough good things about the Milford Nissan dealership especially since my dealings with them were in the midst of the pandemic. In my initial telephone interactions their responses were prompt, clear and helpful making the ride to Milford worthwhile. Upon my arrival I was greeted by Eric Taylor, who made every effort to make me feel comfortable that all appropriate health precautions were being practiced while helping me identify the right vehicle. Eric was by far the most respectful, knowledgeable and genuine car salesman I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Not only was he very familiar with the Nissan options, he was also patient with my questions and never made me feel rushed or pressured. Once I decided on a vehicle, he made the process as streamlined as possible. From negotiating my trade, to discussing financing, to coordinating the final logistics to get me in my new car, his professionalism was consistent. I don’t typically write reviews but buying a car through Milford Nissan, and in particular working with Eric, was an exceptionally smooth and pleasant transaction worthy of this review. In my opinion, you can’t ask for more from a car buying experience.

My family has bought 5, and soon to be 6 cars from Tony and I am not sure I can put into words what a great experience we have all had. Originally, we purchased a Nissan Armada as a family car and we had such a great experience with Tony that when it was time to buy a first car for my son, we came back. Well, kids being kids, my son managed to total the Nissan Rogue, not once but twice. Replacing the car was secondary to Tony - all he was concerned about was how my son was doing. I literally bought 3 Nissan Rogue's in less than 18 months and to say that the transaction was flawless is an under-statement. In fact, I believe my son got a big Tony hug after each new car! I spoke so highly of Tony and Milford Nissan that when my Dad's Infiniti lease was up, he too became a customer and I will attest that his review would be the same as mine. If you are interested in buying/leasing a car without the hassle you are used to from other dealers, and you want someone you feel is on your side, look no further. I promise you won't regret it one bit. Keep it up Tony and Milford Nissan! Who's next?
