2021 Nissan Altima vs. 2021 Toyota Camry

Commuting from Port Richey, Bayonet Point, or Jasmine Estates, FL is a lot better when you're driving a reliable, comfortable midsize sedan like a Nissan Altima or Toyota Camry. Both vehicles offer a dependable, smooth ride, but which option is best for you?


To help with the decision-making process, the knowledgeable team at Maus Nissan of New Port Richey put the two sedans against each other in this 2021 Nissan Altima vs. 2021 Toyota Camry comparison.



With the Altima, you'll have plenty of room to relax with 43.8 inches of front leg room and 39.2 inches of front row head room. As if that wasn't comfortable enough, the 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat comes standard with class-exclusive Zero Gravity lumbar support that gives continuous support to your hips and shoulders while you drive! Driving the family around won't be a problem, as the stylish, open interior comfortably seats up to up to five passengers.  


The Toyota Camry is a worthy competitor that also has seating for five and a power-adjustable driver's seat. However, drivers may feel a little more cramped behind the wheel with just 38.3 inches of front head room and 42.1 inches of front leg room.


Got stuff? No problem! At 15.4 cubic feet, the Altima's spacious trunk provides plenty of space to load your gear. Not enough space? It's still no problem! You can flex your space with the 60/40-split rear seats. With the Camry's smaller 14.1 cubic feet cargo space, you'll have to leave some of your gear at home.


Infotainment & Amenities

While driving an Altima, you will experience its impressive infotainment system called NissanConnect® which is accessible through the 8-inch touch screen that sits nicely on the dashboard. Features include:

·       Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant

·       Apple CarPlay®

·       Android Auto™

·       Voice Recognition

·       Bose® Premium Audio System (complete with nine speakers)

The standard flat-bottom leather-wrapped steering wheel adds excitement to the already-sporty and technology-savvy interior. Take it to another level by upgrading the standard cloth seats to leather or Black Sport Cloth with Orange contrast stitching.


While the Camry offers comparable smartphone capability, it's on a smaller 7-inch touch screen that sits at a sharp angle in the center of the dashboard. The Camry's design also lacks in style and sport-car-like excitement.


Safety Features

You will have peace of mind while driving your Altima with the available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive and Nissan Safety Shield® 360 that includes the following driver-assist safety features:

·       Intelligent Forward Collision Warning with Pedestrian Detection

·       Tire Pressure Monitoring System

·       Rear Cross-Traffic Alert

·       Blind Spot Warning

·       Rear Automatic Braking

·       Lane Departure Warning

While the Camry has plenty of smart safety features, it falls short when compared to the Altima by not offering either Intelligent Forward Collision Warning or the Tire Pressure Monitoring System.
