2017 Nissan Altima vs. Toyota Camry

No matter how popular SUVs and trucks get, midsize sedans still rule the roads. These vehicles have long been a staple of the automotive industry and are loved by drivers all over the nation. The reason for this is that they provide the best balance of luxury, technology, features, and practical performance at a cost most people don’t find outright offensive.

2017 Nissan Altima vs. Toyota Camry

These two cars are very similar, making for a very tight battle. In many ways, the winner comes down to pure preference. Both vehicles are powered by a 2.5L in-line 4 engine, which delivers close horsepower. The Altima barely edges the Camry out at 179 horsepower vs. the Camry’s 178, but this is a very thin margin.

In terms of fuel economy, the Altima comes out supreme, delivering an EPA-estimated 27/39 MPG city/highway, as opposed to the EPA-estimated 24/33 MPG city/highway put out by the Camry.

Comfort and Driving

2017-nissan-altima-interiorBoth vehicles are about the same size, but the Altima offers greater headroom and legroom than the Camry, which leads to an overall more comfortable driving experience. Technically both vehicles have seating capacity for five people, but the Altima does it with a little more space to spare.

The Altima offers outstanding acceleration from its engine, butter-smooth shifting from its transmission, and best-in-class comfort in its front seats. It does an excellent job of mitigating road noise and delivering a smooth ride that’s free of bumps and jars. The Camry also offers a great ride experience, but isn’t quite as athletic out the gate, with acceleration just a shade more sluggish than that offered by the Altima.

What’s New

In the 2017 model year, the Toyota Camry adds a new premium sound system to certain trim levels as a standard feature, which last year was an option, and has discontinued its Special Edition trim level. While the Altima doesn’t add any new features to the 2017 model year, it continues to excel in its base level of features and options.

In the end, both cars put out astounding performance at a great value for drivers in Cherry Hill, Collingswood, and Mount Laurel. For those looking at a by-the-numbers comparison and who demand the best from their midsize sedans, there’s no doubt that the 2017 Nissan Altima is the winner of this battle.
