The 2019 Nissan Altima & the 2019 Toyota Camry go head to head in MotorTrend’s March Mayhem event. In this round, they compare the two vehicles that are the newest in their market, the best selling, and the most well known to determine which is the best family car.
It’s What’s on the Inside that Counts
While these two vehicles may appear pretty similar from a distance, on the inside the differences are striking. While containing most of the same technology and infotainment–except for the standard AndroidAuto connectivity that separates the Altima from Camry–the materials used in the Camry are lackluster compared to the Altima’s finely accented zero gravity front seats. The Altima also offers more front leg room, standard remote engine start, and standard Intelligent Forward Collision Warning.
In the rear, the seats of the Camry open narrowly, making it difficult to fit in a car seat. The Altima rear doors open up to almost 90 degrees, making it extremely easy to install a car seat. The Altima also has the standard Rear Door Alert system, which gives audible and visual heads up in the instrument panel, reminding the driver to check the back seat.
The 2019 Nissan Altima is also more affordable than the Camry, with a base price starting at just over $30k for the Altima, while the Camry starts at close to $35k. With more space, power, and technology, the Altima keeps you feeling sporty, while keep your family safe.

We’re excited about the launch of this all-new design of the classic Nissan sedan we know and love! From exterior, to the engine, to the interior–this Altima has you covered.

Here are the top things you need to know about it:
The new Altima has been truly overhauled for a sleeker, sportier feel. Check out this head-to-head comparison with the 2018 Altima:
This sixth-generation Altima now has a deeper Nissan-signature V-motion grille, a floating roof like others in the Nissan lineup, and sharper lines. In fact, the new Altima is 1.1 inches lower in height than previous models.
The 2019 Nissan Altima is leading the way in its class with the addition of the available ProPilot Assist. This is available on the SV, SL, and Platinum trim levels. ProPilot Assist was included on 2018 models like the Rogue; read more about that feature here. Also available on these trims is the new Rear Automatic Braking (RAB). RAB helps the driver detect stationary objects when backing up, and, if necessary, will apply the break to avoid a collision.
Three features are standard on all trims:
Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB)
Intelligent Forward Collision Warning (I-FCW), and
Intelligent Driver Alertness (I-DA)
All of these combine to create a 360 safety shield around the 2019 Nissan Altima drivers and passengers, as Nissan continues to forge forward in vehicle safety technology.
