  • The 2018 Toyota Camry vs. the 2018 Nissan Altima

    • While both models offer similar standard four-cylinder engines, the 2018 Toyota Camry's base engine hits 203 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque; the 2018 Nissan Altima's base engine, on the other hand, only produces 179 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque.
    • Adding to this, the Camry's base engine also provides higher fuel economy estimations than the Altima's base engine. Compare the former's EPA-estimated 29 mpg in the city and 41 mpg on the highway to the latter's EPA-estimated 27 mpg city and 38 mpg highway.
    • The Nissan Altima comes standard with a continuously variable-speed transmission, which is a real snore to drive; the Toyota Camry, on the other hand, offers a standard 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, giving you much more control and agency over your driving experience.
    • The Toyota Camry comes with standard features like navigation and adaptive cruise control; the Nissan Altima simply doesn't offer these on its base trim.

    • You'll find more front shoulder and hip room, as well as more rear head, hip, and leg room in the Camry; the Altima's cabin feels quite cramped in comparison.
