Camry vs Altima

At Mt Airy Toyota, we know you have a choice when it comes to buying a new sedan. Let’s compare the 2016 Toyota Camry with the 2016 Nissan Altima.

Style and appearance matter when buying a new car, however they can be subjective. While both the 2016 Toyota Camry and 2016 Nissan Altima are stylish in their own way, the 2016 Toyota Camry has a classier, refined look.

The two mid-size sedans are neck and neck when it comes to performance. Base Toyota Camry models are powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder power core that makes 178 horsepower and achieves 35 mpg on the highway. By comparison, the standard Nissan Altima employs a 182 horsepower 2.5-liter that makes 38 mpg on the highway. V-6-powered Toyota Camry models feature a 268-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 and makes 31 mpg on the highway. On the other end of the comparison, the Nissan Altima employs a 270-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 that makes 32 mpg on the highway.

But the 2016 Toyota Camry is also available as a Hybrid- giving it 43mpg in the city!

Technology is also a concern when comparing the 2016 Toyota Camry and the 2016 Nissan Altima. The 2016 Toyota Camry comes with a standard 6.1 inch touch-screen Entune display with CD/aux/USB, Bluetooth, voice recognition, and audio streaming with 6 speakers. The 2016 Nissan Altima comes up a little short in the technology department with only a 5-in. audio display, CD/aux, Pandora, and Bluetooth.

Comfort is a key player. You want to get were where you are going, but don’t want to feel crammed. Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the 2016 Toyota Camry than the Nissan Altima, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan Altima will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Camry.

Of course the best way to compare any two vehicles is a test drive! Head on down to Mount Airy Toyota to test drive the new 2016 Toyota Camry. We have them in every color! And have some great financing option to boot!
