Why You Should Choose the 2018 Honda Civic in Clear Lake Over the Nissan Altima

When choosing between two vehicles, it can be hard in distinguishing one from another. Fortunately, the 2018 Honda Civic in Clear Lake has a slew of features that make it stand out from its competitor, the Nissan Altima.

Model Assortment


Variety is the spice of life, so why wouldn’t you want a couple of options when choosing your next vehicle’s body style? With the Altima, you only have the choice of a sedan style, but with Civic you can select between sedan, four-door hatchback, and even coupe! Whether your deciding factor is based on cargo space, passenger seating or excellent handling and stability, you can count on finding your perfect ride in the Honda Civic.


Engine Performance


The need for speed runs deep within the Civic, and that becomes clear when 158 horsepower comes standard on LX and EX models. For those who like a little more speed, the Civic sedan is also available with the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). This transmission provides an incredible 174 horsepower without having to sacrifice fuel efficiency. When put to the test, Car and Driver found that the Honda Civic is much faster than the Nissan Altima:
