Just because the Toyota Camry has set the standard for the midsize sedan segment of the global automotive industry, doesn’t mean that the competition isn’t going to stop trying to overtake it. A comparison of the 2020 Toyota Camry vs. 2020 Nissan Altima will provide a pretty clear picture to buyers why they should be visiting the Serra Toyota showroom in Birmingham today. For the new model year, Toyota is making some important changes for the Camry platform, including the introduction of all-wheel-drive. On just about every level, the 2020 Camry is able to outperform its Nissan Altima competitor. The 2020 Camry offers more standard performance, more front and rear legroom as well as more access to more advanced technology. Serra Toyota customers can learn more about our inventory and schedule a test drive today by calling 205-847-1847.
Both the 2020 Camry and 2020 Altima are among the most spacious sedans in the class. However, the 2020 Toyota Camry has more legroom than its Nissan competitor. The driver and front passenger riding in the 2020 Camry can have up to 42.1 inches of legroom, with rear passengers having up to 38 inches of legroom. People sitting in the 2020 Nissan Altima have a little more than an inch of additional legroom in the front seat, but about three inches less in the rear when compared to the current Camry. Both vehicles are nearly equal in terms of available trunk volume. Where the 2020 Camry is able to outshine the 2020 Altima is technology. Each sedan offers access to the Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® but the Camry offers a Wi-Fi hotspot. All trims of the Camry will be protected by the Toyota suite of active safety systems – even at the base level. Owners of the Altima S can’t make the same claim.
The 2020 Toyota Camry is available with two engine options, depending on trim grade. Serra Toyota customers choosing the entry-level models will have a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine under the hood that will be attached to an eight-speed automatic transmission. It will make 203 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. When properly equipped, the 2020 Camry will be able to record 29 miles per gallon in the city and 41 miles per gallon on the highway. The available 3.5-liter, V-6 is also attached to an eight-speed automatic, producing 301 horsepower and 267 pound-feet of torque. These models will be able to record 22 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.
Nissan Altima customers will also have a pair of four-cylinder engines to consider. Neither of them will make as much power as the corresponding Toyota engines. The standard engine will make 188 horsepower and will make up to 28 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway. Customers can also choose a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that tops out at just under 250 horsepower and only records a few miles per gallon more than the V-6 of the Camry.
