2019 Nissan Altima vs 2019 Toyota Camry

Serving Troy, MI

The Nissan Altima and the Toyota Camry are two of the oldest midsize sedan nameplates in the market, and, as a result, among the best-selling ones. Their manufacturers have continued to refine them as dependable vehicles for daily commuters, as well as providers of technologies and amenities to make them safer and more comfortable than ever before. For 2019, Nissan unveiled a brand-new Altima to kick off its sixth production cycle. Toyota had already introduced the eighth-generation Camry two years before and is content with just fusing it with Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa compatibility for this model year. While it can be argued that you can't go wrong with either choice, here are three reasons why you should choose the 2019 Nissan Altima over the 2019 Toyota Camry.

Passenger and Cargo Volume

With the complete redesign, the 2019 Nissan Altima gains a passenger volume of 100.8 cubic feet to keep occupants—up to five—comfy. Although the 2019 Toyota Camry is also a two-row five-seater, its passenger volume, measured at 100.4 cubic feet, is slightly smaller. Similarly, the 2019 Altima surpasses the 2019 Camry in terms of cargo volume. The trunk of the new Nissan car yields 15.4 cubic feet of space, regardless of the trim combination. On the 2019 Toyota Camry, you will need to go with any trim but the base-level L to maximize cargo volume at 15.1 cubic feet, which is slightly smaller than what the Altima offers; otherwise, you will have 14.5 cubic feet of trunk space.

All-Wheel Drivetrain

While traditional sedans usually stick with the front-wheel drivetrain, this will mark the first time in the Altima's history in which drivers can choose between a front-wheel drive and an all-wheel drive. With engine power sent to all four wheels instead of two, the 2019 Altima can prevent skidding on slippery surfaces. This ensures a more stable and safer driving experience than if it is using front-wheel drive. The 2019 Toyota Camry does not offer you the choice of an all-wheel drivetrain.

Driver Assistance

The 2019 Nissan Altima also sets a precedent among midsize sedans in offering a semi-autonomous driving option known as ProPILOT Assist. It is a driver-assistance technology that enables you to let go of stress while it helps take over some of the tasks of daily driving—with just the press of a button. For instance, ProPILOT Assist helps maintain a set distance from the car ahead of you, and the system can even bring you to a full stop based on traffic flow and bring you back up to speed when traffic starts moving again. Additionally, on the open road, ProPILOT Assist will keep you centered in your lane through the straightaways—and even through gentle curves. ProPILOT Assist is part of the Nissan Intelligent Mobility™ suite of safety technologies that gathers features such as automatic emergency braking, rear automatic braking, blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, and high beam assists harnessed by a network of cameras to optimize safe driving. Although the 2019 Toyota Camry has its own share of advanced safety features, they do not come together with the same level of driver-assistance sophistication of the latest Altima.
