Toyota Camry vs Nissan Altima: Spotlight on Space & Comfort
While the difference between these two when it comes to space isn’t vast, it’s clearly noticeable.
Throughout its cabin, the Camry generally offers more opportunity for all occupants to get comfortable. This is made evident by its 55.4 inches of hip room in the front seats and 54.7 inches of hip room in the back seats. The Altima falls short in this regard as it only provides you and your passengers with 54.7 inches of hip room in the front row and 54.5 inches in the back row.
Staying in the back-row seats, the Toyota Camry supplies the folks back there with an abundance of accommodating space. It contains 38 inches of headroom and 38 inches of legroom in the back seat, while the Nissan Altima again falls short with its 36.9 inches of headroom and 35.2 inches of legroom offered to the passengers riding in the rear.
In terms of comfort, one thing these sedans share is the fact that they are both outfitted with cloth seating appointments. The Toyota Camry features 6-way adjustable driver’s and front passenger’s seats that come as standard features. In addition to that, it’s also available with an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support for even more comfort when you’re out on the road.
Just like the Camry, the Nissan Altima also has an 8-way adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support. However, the front passenger in the Altima only has a 4-way adjustable seat available to them.
Audio & Connectivity
Both of these accommodating sedans provide you with accessible technology features. For instance, the Toyota Camry features the high-resolution 7-inch Entune™ touchscreen display that sits in the center of the dashboard and provides you with access to your entertainment features. An 8-inch screen is available for even more access. The screen in the Nissan Altima is just as convenient as the one in the Camry as it is also eight inches.
Both the Toyota Camry and Nissan Altima have the opportunity to deliver enjoyable listening experiences. They both come standard with 6-speaker audio systems and are available with nine speakers for an even more complete sound. In addition to all of that, the 2019 Camry boosts the sound even more with an available subwoofer amplifier. This isn’t something you’ll find in the 2019 Nissan Altima.
In terms of audio and infotainment systems, the 2019 Toyota Camry manages to come out on top again. It’s available with the Entune™ 3.0 Audio Plus with App Suite that features an AM/FM/HD Radio™ and a CD player.
The App Suite includes such handy tools as Wi-Fi Connect® Powered by Verizon that keeps everyone inside the cabin connected for the entire ride by having the ability to accommodate up to five devices via the in-vehicle 4G LTE hotspot. Another useful aspect of App Suite is the Remote Connect that allows you to start the engine, locate the car, and lock and unlock the doors whenever the situation calls for it.
While the sound system in the 2019 Nissan Altima also has HD Radio™, it does not have an app suite with any of the convenient features mentioned above.
Safety Features for Advanced Support
The Toyota Camry is equipped with Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and Traction Control (TRAC) and the Nissan Altima utilizes the Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) with Traction Control System (TCS). Each of these systems will help aid the respective driver in the event that you find yourself on the road when slippery road conditions are present. When either of these vehicles experiences a loss of traction, their systems will provide enough brake pressure to help regain stability.
Each sedan is equipped with advanced front airbags that will adjust their inflation pressure to help compensate for the force of impact. Both vehicles are equipped with front airbags, side-impact airbags, and side-curtain airbags. They have additional protection with knee airbags for both the driver and front passenger as well.
Two more items that help out if you’re ever involved in an accident in the Camry are the Driver and Front Passenger Whiplash-Injury-Lessening (WIL) seats. These are not found in the 2019 Nissan Altima. Plus, the Toyota Camry is available with collision sensors, which deactivate the battery in the event that a collision has occurred in order to limit any damage and to prevent further damage from taking place.
