As a mid-size sedan that has a lineup of eight models, the 2017 Nissan Altima offers lots of options in performance, styling and technology. The Toyota Camry is a mid-size sedan that’s available in four gas-powered models and three hybrid editions.

Equipped with the Xtronic CVT and Active Understeer Control, the Altima is more agile than the Camry. Featuring the 7-inch NissanConnect infotainment system and Intelligent Climate Control, this Nissan also offers more advanced technology.

Capable of producing up to 179 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque, the QR25DE engine is standard in the Nissan Altima 2.5 models. The 3.5 editions are powered by the VQ35DE V6 engine that yields a maximum of 270 hp and 251 lb-ft of torque. When equipped with a 2.5 L engine, the Toyota Camry offers 178 hp and 170 lb-ft of torque. The Camry’s 3.5 L V6 engine has a top output of 268 hp and 248 lb-ft of torque. The Altima’s Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control System (CVTCS) offers more efficient and powerful combustion than the Camry’s Dual Variable Valve Timing with intelligence (DVVT-i) mechanism.

When you grab the shift lever in the Altima, you have access to a limitless number of gear combinations in the Xtronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) system, which includes paddle shifters and the Manual Shift Mode. The Camry comes standard with an electronically-controlled automatic transmission system that has six gear speeds. Additionally, this Toyota’s Electronically-Controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (ECVT) can’t match the Xtronic CVT. The Active Understeer Control and ZF Sachs shock absorbers give this Nissan sedan an edge in the handling department.

The Nissan Altima is available in cool exterior paint options such as Cayenne Red, Storm Blue, Deep Blue Pearl and Java Metallic. Ruby Red Flare, Blue Streak, Parisian Night Pearl and Super White are some of the attractive exterior colors that are available for the Toyota Camry. Equipped with the active front grille covers, the Altima gets good aerodynamic performance at various speeds. Sculpted lines on the hood and fascia also highlight this model’s athletic profile.

Having an all-black design, the SR Midnight Edition is perhaps the most stylish trim in the Altima lineup. The optional sport spoiler or rear decklid spoiler can add extra styling to the car’s exterior. Covered in shiny chrome, the Altima’s dual exhaust pipes add a sense of aggression. The smoked headlight housing is another modern accessory that enhances the vehicle’s appeal. Projector-type halogen headlights, LED Daytime Running Lights and LED headlights generate functional and economical illumination.

The Remote Engine Start and Stop System with Intelligent Climate Control ensures a comfortable entry into the Nissan Altima. With the touch of the Nissan Intelligent Key, you can remotely manage the car’s ignition system and select the ideal temperature settings. When it comes to digital technology, the Altima offers the NissanConnect multimedia system that includes a 7-inch touch screen.

The Camry’s Entune infotainment system also has a touch-screen monitor with the same dimensions. Both sedans are available with GPS navigation systems that respond to voice commands. Additionally, music on SiriusXM Satellite Radio is accessible in these cars. The NissanConnect suite allows you to access Pandora Internet Radio, Facebook, Google and many other online applications.
