The Toyota Camry and the Nissan Altima have been locked in a head-to-head competition for years, so you may now be debating between these two midsize sedans for your upcoming auto purchase. Both options are priced almost identically at the base MSRP level and are available in multiple trim levels. With this in mind, a full review of these premium sedans is in order before you narrow down your search to a specific model.
For 2021, the Toyota Camry is offered with a four-cylinder engine, a more powerful V6 alternative, and a hybrid powertrain. It also has a full array of driver assistance systems and technologies. The 2021 Altima is available with a four-cylinder engine as standard equipment in most trim levels. A turbo four-cylinder alternative is offered only in select top trims. Both vehicles are available with all-wheel drive as an option.
The Camry and the Altima have comparable dimensions, but they are easy to tell apart on the road. Specifically, the Camry has a rounded hood that tapers into a strong point on the nose. This look is enhanced by four long personality lines that flow toward the automaker’s logo on the grille. In addition, pointed LED headlights, a crisp personality line on the sides, and low ground clearance add to its athletic look. On the other hand, the Altima had a more subdued look with a V-motion grille that sinks to the bottom of the front fascia, a rounder nose, and a taller hood that takes a dip toward the grille at the last minute.
These design trends flow into the cabins as well. For example, the 2021 Camry has a Y-shaped center stack that beautifully incorporates personality into the space. This curvaceous design combines with a touch display screen, a keyless ignition, smart device integration, and other desired items. In the 2021 Altima, the dashboard design is relatively traditional with a floating display screen, a pair of knobs for the sound system’s controls, and a linear flow between the center stack and the console.
While the 2021 Nissan Altima has its positive attributes, the Toyota Camry is the model that deserves your full attention today.
