2018 Toyota Camry vs 2018 Nissan Altima

There are plenty of reasons to consider a new Toyota Camry over a Nissan Altima, and our staff is here to point out exactly what sets the former apart.

  • The standard engine at the heart of the 2018 Toyota Camry has received a boost to 203-horsepower, which is superior to the 179-horsepower engine of the Nissan Altima. If that's not enough, the 301-horsepower V6 is available as well. The top engine option of the Altima only peaks at 270-horsepower.
  • Not only do the engines of the Camry feature a stronger performance, but they boast a more efficient gas mileage than the Altima. Its EPA-estimated 28 city and 39 highway mpg might barely edge out the Altima's 27 city and 38 highway mpg, but by doing so it is one of the most fuel-efficient models in its class.
  • The Toyota Camry put a greater emphasis on its interior quality with top-notch materials, easy-to-reach controls, and plenty of upscale additions across its trim levels - courtesy of its recent redesign. As a result, the Altima comes off as outdated with a less impressive cabin space.
  • A large part of what makes the Camry's interior impressive is its list of features. Its Entune infotainment system is user-friendly on its standard 7-inch touchscreen, incorporating Siri Eyes Free and Google voice commands for a greater display of convenience. The Altima, on the other hand, struggles with a less intuitive infotainment system on a smaller display with less compatible features.
  • While the Altima received a five-star overall rating from the NHTSA, it didn't earn a perfect score on every test like the Toyota Camry. That's because the Camry comes with Toyota's Safety Sense P, complete with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning with steering assist, adaptive cruise control, and more.
