2016 Toyota Camry vs 2016 Nissan Altima
Generally when you begin shopping for a new car, you know exactly what type of car you’re interested in, but when you lower the field of choices down to a smaller number, that’s when things begin to get difficult. An easy way of deciding between two different models is to utilize side-by-side comparisons that show you what you’re getting with each vehicle, which is why we thought we’d help you decide today between two extremely popular midsize sedans as we pit the 2016 Toyota Camry vs 2016 Nissan Altima.
The Altima is a bit newer than the Camry, not just because it was introduced in 1992 – ten years after the Camry – but because it just received an overhaul in 2013, whereas the Camry entered its tenth generation in 2011. But that doesn’t mean that the Camry, which did receive a mid-generation refresh for 2015, doesn’t have plenty of exciting content and design cues to offer.
Advantages of the 2016 Toyota Camry
Taking a look at the table above, you can tell that both midsize sedans are quite compatible. For instance, the very first specification we took a look at was cargo capacity, and both vehicles offer the same exact trunk size. However, in terms of space in the cabin for you and your passengers to stretch out in, the 2016 Toyota Camry offers a larger volume, though only by 0.8 cu. ft. Furthermore, you can feel a little better about stuffing taller passengers into the backseat of a Camry, as it offers 2.8 extra inches of rear leg room than its segment rival.
Unfortunately, the 2016 Nissan Altima offers a more powerful engine. Fortunately, its advantage is only by 4 horsepower, so the difference wouldn’t be that noticeable. But that is one of the only areas where the Altima is superior to the Camry. If you prefer having a larger cabin, then the Camry is the obvious choice. Especially when you consider all of the outstanding safety features and other premium features packed into the midsize sedan.
