With their similar pricing, features, and size, the 2016 Toyota Camry and Nissan Altima are frequently compared to each other. The Camry is slightly cheaper than the Altima and it has several other important advantages, as well.
Engine Choices and Efficiency
Both the Toyota Camry and Nissan Altima come standard with a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine and offer an available 3.5-liter V6. While those are the only engine choices you will have for the Altima, the Camry also offers a hybrid powertrain that gets the best fuel efficiency out of any configuration of these two sedans. The Camry Hybrid pairs the 2.5-liter 4-cylinder with a battery pack and electric motor to get the highest standard power output of 200 horses and the best efficiency. The Camry Hybrid gets up to 43 mpg in the city, 39 on the highway, and 41 combined. By comparison, the most efficient Altima only gets 31 mpg combined.
Standard and Available Features
The Toyota Camry also has several feature advantages over the Altima, including its available moonroof, its standard rearview camera, and its advanced safety features. The Camry offers lane departure warning, collision mitigation, rear cross-traffic alert, and blind spot warning, which the Altima doesn’t.
The Toyota Camry lets you pick from one of five trim levels, as does the Nissan Altima. Since the Camry also offers a hybrid with several trim levels, it has more overall configurations, giving Boerne drivers a better chance of finding their perfect vehicle.
