2017 Nissan Altima vs 2017 Toyota Camry

Aesthetically, these are two very different takes on the four-door sedan. The Nissan Altima went with sharp lines, an aggressive style, and the signature V-motion grille. The Camry is just strange, with an oddly proportioned grille that stands out as the only distinguishing feature on an otherwise bland sedan.

Saving money is important. A few dollars difference in starting MSRP may not seem like a huge deal, but when you combine that with the amazing fuel economy that the Altima offers, then the savings will really start to add up over time.

This efficiency disparity continues even when you get to the top trims with their more powerful engines. The top 3.5 SL Altima give you 22 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway whereas the top XSE Camry only gives you 21 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.

The Altima offers proximity key along with push button start standard meaning that you never have to dig for your keys again. You have to go up a trim level before it even becomes an option on the Camry, and several more trim levels before it becomes standard.

Both the Altima and the Camry are available with V-6 engines, but the Altima provides just a little more power and performance. This little bit extra is also present when you compare the base model 4-cylinder engines as the Altima has 179 horsepower and the Camry has 178 horsepower.
