For the 2018 model year, the iconic Toyota Camry – one of the best-selling sedans in North America for the past several years – was completely renovated to offer a fresh option to midsize sedan drivers all across Canada. But there are still plenty of other options in the segment to choose from, so what makes the 2018 Camry a better choice than the rest? We thought we’d start answering that question on a small scale, by comparing the 2018 Toyota Camry vs 2018 Nissan Maxima.
In the table below, we’ve compiled a few of the most important specifications to consider when shopping for a car like the Camry or Maxima. With one glance at the data in the table, you can tell that these cars are extremely comparable to one another. But we’ll dive through row by row to give you a better idea of the differences between them.
Advantages of the 2018 Camry
While the two sedans are quite similar in specifications, the 2018 Camry manages to pull ahead in just about every area. In the first row we looked at horsepower, in which the Camry offers an extra horsepower. That’s hardly an advantage, but technically speaking the Camry does offer more power. A bit more noticeable, though, is the second row, which depicts the two sedans’ combined fuel efficiency ratings. The Camry utilizes 0.4 litres less fuel to travel the same 100 kilometres as the Maxima.

The most noticeable advantage that the Camry has appears when analyzing space. While both cars offer seating for up to 5, the Camry’s trunk has 0.8 cubic feet of extra space to fill with groceries or luggage. Once again, not a huge advantage, but a leg up nonetheless.
