2021 Toyota Camry vs 2021 Nissan Altima

Serving Enid, OK

The Toyota Camry and the Nissan Altima have comparable appeal on the surface, so deciding which of these midsize cars to take home could be challenging. These are midsize cars that have been locked in direct competition for decades, and their base MSRPs are comparable. Nonetheless, the Camry and the Altima have individualized character and notable differences that will sway your selection.


In 2021, the Camry and the Altima are mid-generation versions, so their exterior styles are comparable to their preceding model years. From the front view, the Camry makes an aggressive first impression. The hourglass-shaped grille has black mesh backing and a body-colored element that crosses through the top. The pointed LED lights and the lower air vents' sporty shape highlight the Camry's athletic façade. The 2021 Nissan Altima, on the other hand, delivers its style from a more refined angle. While the Camry has a forward-trending profile, the Altima stands relatively upright. The V-Motion grille sinks to the bottom of the nose. Both vehicles come with a remote release function for the trunk, a sunroof, heated side mirrors, and other elements throughout their various trim levels.


The extensive character of the 2021 Toyota Camry is displayed throughout its interior design as well. The premium materials are combined with ambient lighting and a Y-shaped element that runs through the dashboard. The Altima's interior design is relatively common, with a floating display screen stacked over air vents and the climate control system. Both of these vehicles are available with cruise control, a heated steering wheel, smart device integration, heated seats, a push-button engine starter, and other features at different trims.


Continued review of the 2021 Camry and the Nissan Altima reveals differences in their capabilities. The Camry is available with multiple gas-powered and hybrid engines. One of the hybrid engines is a 2.5-liter Dynamic Force, four-cylinder engine that delivers 208 net horsepower. One of the Camry's gas powertrains is a V6, 3.5-liter engine that puts out 301 horsepower. In comparison, the 2021 Nissan Altima has only two gas powertrains. These are a four-cylinder, 2.5-liter engine that delivers 188 horsepower and a VC-Turbo four-cylinder engine that generates 248 horsepower.
