Nissan Altima vs Toyota Camry
When you begin looking for your next sedan, a few of your vehicle must-haves will likely be fuel efficiency, interior comfort, and safety. Both the 2021 Nissan Altima and the Toyota Camry offer these qualities. However, which can give drivers in the Montgomeryville, Lansdale, and Doylestown, Pennsylvania, area more?
In this Nissan Altima vs. Toyota Camry comparison, our team at Montgomeryville Nissan will examine all these specs, features, and more. Soon, you’ll have no doubt which is the more well-rounded vehicle.
If you want low fuel consumption, the Nissan Altima has your back. When standardly outfitted, this model achieves an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 28 city/39 highway MPG, keeping you on the road for longer.* This is largely achieved by the 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, which is optimized with a direct injection gasoline system.
High fuel efficiency doesn’t mean you have to compromise power. The engine in the Altima is backed by an Xtronic® continuously variable transmission (CVT). This helps the Altima produce 188 horsepower and 182 lb-ft of torque. So, even when saving on gas, you can drive fast. While the Toyota Camry is also equipped with a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, it lacks many of the streamlined features found in the Altima, such as the CVT, which aids in less fuel consumption. The LE trim proves this. With its 8-speed automatic transmission and AWD, it only gets you 25 city/34 highway MPG.
Between work commutes and weekend fun, many of us spend several hours a week in the car. If that’s the case for you, then you’re going to need something in which you can feel completely comfortable.
Drivers of the Nissan Altima will be afforded a roomy cabin with up to 39.2 inches of headroom and 43.8 inches of legroom. Several convenient technologies have also been added to increase comfort. With its keyless entry, you can hop into your vehicle and start the engine with just the push of a button. From here you can then turn to your car’s Advanced Drive-Assist Display® to check vehicle metrics and trip details.
The Camry shares some convenient features with the Altima, such as keyless entry. However, space is also downgraded as drivers will only have 38.3 inches of headroom and 42.1 inches of legroom, so you may often feel cramped.
Technology is an important aspect of any vehicle safety suite. Luckily, both the Nissan Altima and the Toyota Camry come with comprehensive driver-assist safety features.
In both vehicles, standard features include helpful tech like Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection. This feature uses sensors and cameras mounted to the exterior of the vehicle to detect obstacles in the road ahead. If the system detects a potential collision, the vehicle will alert the driver. It can even autonomously apply the brakes if necessary to prevent or mitigate a collision.
One helpful feature in the Nissan is the available Intelligent Driver Alertness. This tech monitors your driving habits, and if it detects that you’re potentially getting drowsy or distracted, it alerts you with a chime. The Toyota does not have a comparable feature.
Technology is important in a vehicle, and the Toyota Camry certainly offers plenty of it. The Nissan Altima, on the other hand, is a remarkably well-rounded sedan that can match all your needs.
