You may think that the competition between the 2019 Nissan Altima and the 2019 Toyota Camry is close. But you’ll want to think again: When the Altima and Camry are stacked up side by side, the sheer difference in exclusive features make Nissan’s sedan the better choice by far.
Performance-wise, it’s simply no contest. The 2019 Nissan Altima is available with the new VC-Turbo engine, which uses variable compression rates to deliver optimal performance and efficiency on demand. This is not something any other vehicle in the segment offers. The Altima also has the leg up on the Camry thanks to available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive, with which the 2019 Nissan Altima is the most fuel-efficient AWD sedan in its class.* The Camry is not offered with AWD.
Technologically, the 2019 Nissan Altima stands head and shoulders above the Camry. It features standard, class-exclusive Intelligent Forward Collision Warning and Automatic Emergency Braking, neither of which are offered with the Camry. The Altima also features standard USB Type C outlets and Easy-Fill Tire Alert, both of which are class-exclusive. If you have an Android smartphone, the 2019 Altima features standard Android Auto™ whereas the Camry does not even offer it as optional equipment.
Add in more front-row legroom, a standard power driver seat, and standard key-activated remote engine start, and the 2019 Nissan Altima is far and away the superior choice compared to the Toyota Camry. To feel the difference for yourself, stop into Bates Nissan and take the new Nissan Altima for a test drive.
