The 2019 Toyota Camry vs. The 2019 Nissan Altima

Drivers who are shopping for a new car face a tough decision with an extensive variety of different makes and models to choose from. Which is why many drivers, like yourself, take to the internet to read reviews, compare trim levels and features all to determine which car best meets your needs. As well as your budget. And two popular models that many drivers in the Conroe area are torn between are the Toyota Camry and the Nissan Altima. These two mid-size cars have been rivals for years but in our head to head comparison, the Toyota Camry comes out on top in a number of ways. Like spirited and efficient performance as well as standard advanced safety.


Technology has made leaps and bounds in recent years and cars are now smarter than ever before with more advanced safety features. Which is one of the most important features a new vehicle has to offer and one way that the Toyota Camry bests the Nissan Altima. The Toyota Camry comes loaded with a long list of standard driver assist safety features as well as performance safety features. As well as 2-years no cost maintenance with 24-hour roadside assistance to have you covered no matter where you go. The Nissan Altima, however, come standard with a couple of advanced safety features that include Intelligent Forward Collision Warning and Automatic Emergency Braking. But that is it. All other advanced safety features are on upper-level trims. Every Toyota Camry is equipped with Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Departure Alert, Automatic High Beams, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control as part of Toyota Safety Sense. While Star Safety System includes Enhanced Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, Brake Assist, and Smart Stop Technology just to name a few.


Another way that the Toyota Camry outshines the Nissan Altima is with more powerful and more fuel efficient performance. Both vehicles have two powertrain options to choose from. The Nissan comes standard with a 2.5L four-cylinder that generates 188 horsepower and gets an estimated 39 highway mpg. Or you can choose the available 2.0L turbo four-cylinder with 248 horsepower. The 2.0L turbo, however, is only available on two of the five Altima models. Powering the Camry is a 2.5L four-cylinder with an impressive 203 horsepower and also gets 41 highway mpg. Or for more powerful performance the 3.5L V6 delivers with 301 horsepower under the hood. The Toyota Camry is also available in a hybrid for those drivers looking for maximum fuel efficiency. The Nissan Altima doesn't have a hybrid model to choose.


After safety and powertrain, features are the next thing that can be a deciding factor in which car you drive home in. And when it comes to connective infotainment systems the Entune Audio system on the Toyota Camry has more to offer. The Nissan Altima does feature a large touchscreen then the Camry but doesn't offer any built-in apps. The Entune Audio system features Scout® GPS Link, Siri Eyes Free, Remote Connect, Apple CarPlay & Android Auto. Another feature that the Nissan Altima doesn't offer that the Toyota Camry does is Wi-Fi connectivity.

We firmly believe that the best way to experience all of the ways that the Toyota Camry leaves the Nissan Altima behind is by coming down to Gullo Toyota of Conroe today and going for a test drive.
