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.
