2018 Nissan Altima vs 2018 Toyota Camry

Serving Gainesville, Atlanta, and Toccoa, GA

In this analysis of the 2018 Nissan Altima, we’ll look at how it compares to its rival, the 2018 Toyota Camry. There are definitely some differences which suggest that the Altima deserves the top spot on your shopping list. This goes beyond a price difference which favors the Altima. A review of features, size, safety, and other key elements reveal the Altima to be a total value package.

Solid Appeal

Owners have a lot to say about their cars. Drivers especially like the exclusive Zero Gravity chairs. These support the human body better than the average seat. Pelvis-to-chest support helps prevent fatigue, making your evening commute better and lessening the anxiety of long trips. Real owners ranked the Altima on 77 factors, giving it the top score in the busy mid-sized sedan class. The 2018 Nissan Altima is giving owners more contemporary features and greater value as it reduces its trim levels by two.

Better Size

While Toyota Camry’s are rated 100.4 cubic feet in passenger volume, Altimas can claim 101.9 cubes. The Nissan also has best-in-class front row spaciousness. Serving drivers, Altimas have two extra inches of headroom and three extra inches of legroom. By contrast, short drivers may lose some visibility in the Camry’s low-mounted seat while tall drivers may wish for a different driving angle. Travelers will appreciate more space for their luggage in the Nissan. The Camry trunk is rated 14.1 cubic feet while the Altima claims 15.4 cubic feet. Nissan also provides cargo tie-downs to keep your load in place.

More Dash Tech

Both cars have a rearview camera and a touchscreen. Nissan’s system includes two systems not found on the Camry at any level. Apple CarPlay lets the Apple smartphone user access Apple Maps and many other applications, putting the information right on the touchscreen. Likewise, Android Auto allows Android smartphone owners to access Google maps and other features. Regardless of which phone system you use, you’ll enjoy streaming navigation and many other services you can’t get from a limited menu of apps.

Crash Avoidance

While both cars now have a standard automatic braking feature, only the Altima can recognize when a car is stopping a few lengths ahead. Furthermore, the Altima offers moving object detection. This system will recognize if a cart is rolling or a person is moving into your path during a slow maneuver. Part of the SurroundView camera, MOD remains a Nissan exclusive not found on rivals like the Camry. In fact, Toyota isn’t offering a 360-degree camera on the Camry at all. Nissan SurroundView utilizes many cameras to give you a view of every side of the vehicle. This reduces the chances you’ll hit an obstacle or another car during parking maneuvers. Another Altima exclusive, the Easy Fill Tire Alert emits a friendly beep when you achieve the correct pressure in a tire.
