Altima vs Camry: Performance

2019 Nissan Altima

The 2019 Nissan Altima offers two impressive engines in its powertrain lineup including the world’s first ever VC-Turbo™ (variable compression turbo) engine.1This one-of-a-kind engine transforms in shape in order to maximize both power and fuel economy.

The Altima is also one of only a few sedans on the market that offer all-wheel drive. The Altima’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system monitors the conditions of the road and adjusts automatically and instantaneously in order to give you the best possible grip on the road.

The 2019 Toyota Camry also offers more than one engine option. However, you won’t find anything like the VC-Turbo™ engine in this model. The Camry also only offers a front-wheel drivetrain, which means more difficulty driving in anything but ideal weather conditions.

Altima vs Camry: Interior Features

Inside the 2019 Nissan Altima, you’ll find all kinds of helpful technology features starting with standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integration. To enhance the convenience in your Altima, you can also opt for class-exclusive USB Type C-Outlets2and class-exclusive Easy-Fill Tire Alert3.

The 2019 Toyota Camry, on the other hand, only offers one of these incredible features that the Altima boasts for free. In this sedan, you’ll have standard Apple CarPlay™. However, Android users will have to go without smartphone integration as this model doesn’t offer Android Auto™.

On top of the extra tech features that the Altima has to offer, it also provides plenty of comfort for you and your passengers. This model sports a standard power-adjustable driver’s seat and a whopping 43.8 inches of front legroom. The Camry, on the other hand, offers just 42.1 inches of front legroom, and you’ll have to upgrade for power seat adjustability. 

Altima vs Camry: Advanced Safety

2019 Nissan Altima Safety Technology

Both the 2019 Nissan Altima and the 2019 Toyota Camry offer a variety of advanced active safety features. Both models offer standard Automatic Emergency Braking4, which detects potential collisions and automatically applies the brakes to help you prevent collisions. The Altima and the Camry also offer Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Traffic Alerts.

The Altima takes safety a few steps further, though. This model also offers standard class-exclusive Intelligent Forward Collision Warning. This feature also helps you prevent collisions by constantly monitoring the vehicles around you. When it detects a change in speed or velocity, this feature will warn you, so that you can get stopped in time to prevent a collision.
