2019 Toyota Camry vs. 2018 Nissan Altima
The Toyota Camry has reigned atop the midsize sedan class of the global automotive industry for nearly 20 consecutive years. In that time, the class has gone through a lot of changes and the Camry platform adapts and carries on undaunted. Toyota didn’t let last year’s total redesign of the Camry slow down its innovations in the industry segment. A comparison of the 2019 Toyota Camry vs. 2018 Nissan Altima will clearly demonstrate this idea. From an aesthetic standpoint, the 2019 Camry carries over from last year unchanged, but it’s what’s on the inside that counts – as they say. The automaker has vastly improved its connectivity gear, moving the 2019 Camry further ahead of its Nissan Altima competitor. The 2019 Toyota Camry is currently available at the Colonial Toyota showroom. Customers can schedule a test drive today by calling, 203-403-6890.
For a long time, the Toyota Entune infotainment system has been an industry favorite among experts. Buyers coming to Colonial Toyota to take a closer look at the 2019 Toyota Camry will be getting a version of the software suite that is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Amazon’s Alexa digital home assistant. A lot of automakers offer smartphone integration, but the ability to use Alexa to send driving directions to the vehicle or monitor fuel levels is rarer. Nissan doesn’t offer this capability in the 2018 Altima. The other area where independent reviews have praised the 2019 Camry is the overall quality of the materials used to build out the passenger cabin. Experts praised the Camry for generous use of soft-touch surfaces that look as good as they feel. The 2018 Altima loses points for its cabin materials leaving a bit to be desired.

The 2019 Toyota Camry uses the same improved 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine attached to the eight-speed automatic transmission that debuted last year. It makes up to 203 horsepower and 206 pound-feet of torque. Shoppers who choose the corresponding powertrain of the 2018 Nissan Altima will also be getting a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine, but it uses a continuously variable transmission and a peak output that doesn’t break 180 horsepower. Even with this disparity in performance, the 2019 Toyota Camry is able to post better Environmental Protection Agency fuel economy scores than the current Nissan Altima.
