December 6th, 2017 by

You’ve got your eye on a midsized sedan. With all of the choices out there, what’s the case for the 2018 Toyota Camry? Let’s see how it fares against a rival, the Nissan Altima.

Flair
The 2018 Toyota Camry has more flair than ever before. While the Altima offers nine color choices, the Camry is offering 13, including duo-tone choices with black roofs. While Altimas offer higher trim levels, Camrys are going premium, competing more with luxury models than with their affordable counterparts. In the Camry cabin, high quality, long-lasting materials are in every trim, even the most affordable trim model at this Toyota dealer serving Goldsboro NC.

Performance
Altima’s four-cylinder engine earns 179 horsepower and 177 lb.-ft. of torque. The Camry engine generates 203 horsepower and 184 lb.-ft. of torque. This high horsepower engine is a turbo, and it earns several more gallons in both city and highway driving than the rival Altima. When you do the math, the Camry makes more sense in every category. Value your trade.

Safety
When you add up Camry’s safety package, the value is definitely with the Toyota. The Nissan Altima has six airbags. Camrys have ten. While both base editions come with forward collision warning with autobrake, only Toyota’s system includes a pedestrian watch. Toyota has a standard lane watch and lane assist, but Nissan isn’t offering either. Toyota has advanced cruise control on every model. Nissan reserves its adaptive cruise control for its most expensive edition.
