Toyota Camry vs. Nissan Altima

If you’re in the market for a midsize sedan, the 2016 Toyota Camry and 2016 Nissan Altima are two names you’ll see cropping up again and again. Both are great cars at the top of their class, but every competition needs a winner. Which car is the better midsize sedan? Read on to find out why the Camry continues to outsell the Altima.

The 2016 Toyota Camry has more impressive technology.

In our age of smartphones, virtual reality, and rapidly advancing technology, isn’t it time a car wowed us with its technological marvels? The 2016 Toyota Camry is that car. With features like wireless charging, which allows your compatible smartphone to charge with no messy cords or plugs, the gorgeous LCD display with Entune App Suite, advanced Navigation system, and Voice-activated features, the Toyota Camry is a highly advanced piece of technology. The 2016 Nissan Altima has technology that comes standard with many other 2016 vehicles, such as GPS, remote vehicle start, and app connectivity, but when you put the two cars side by side, the Altima just isn’t keeping up.

The 2016 Toyota Camry has more options, including hybrid.

With so many build options to choose from, you are free to make the 2016 Toyota Camry the car you want. First, there’s the XLE V6, with a souped-up 3.5-liter V6 engine, giving you 268 horsepower at your fingertips. The 2016 Nissan Altima has a comparable version, but crucially, the Altima doesn’t offer a hybrid build.

The 2016 Toyota Camry comes standard with 10 airbags, compared to the Altima’s six. The Camry also offers the Star Safety System, Whiplash-Injury-Lessening seats, and a backup camera. Plus, it has available enhanced safety features including:

  • Pre-Collision System
  • Safety Connect
  • Blind Spot Monitor

Plus, the 2016 Toyota Camry comes with ToyotaCare, which includes no-cost maintenance and roadside assistance for two years or 25,000 miles. By comparison, the Altima does offer similar features, such as backup cameras, traffic sensors, and backup sensors, but nothing compares to the fact that Toyota has a long-standing commitment to safety.

Winner: 2016 Toyota Camry

The Toyota Camry remains the king of midsize sedans with the 2016 model, a sleekly designed car for our modern times. The 2016 Nissan Altima is a worthy midsize sedan and continues to up its game in an effort to compete with the Camry, but it ultimately can’t match Toyota’s commitment to innovation and quality.
