The Nissan Altima is able to put out 177 SAE Net Torque @ 4000 RPM, which out-performs the Toyota Camry which will only reach 170 SAE Net Torque @ 4100 RPM, so the Nissan Altima ultimately offers a competitive edge when it comes to quicker driving response.

Fuel Efficiency

Even though the Nissan Altima puts out more horsepower and torque from basically the same motor as the Toyota Camry has, the Nissan Altima also achieves better fuel economy when on the highway or when driving in the city. The Nissan Altima performs well at 27 miles per gallon when driving in the city, while the Toyota Camry achieves 24 miles per gallon. On the highway, the Nissan Altima reaches an impressive 39 miles per gallon, while the Toyota Camry falls massively short at a mere 33 miles per gallon. Some specialists have accredited this fuel economy superiority to the Nissan Altima possibly being more aerodynamic than its rival, but there is no doubt that the Nissan Altima features more horsepower and torque than the Toyota Camry, while, contrary to what one would think, the Nissan Altima still features superior fuel economy no matter if driven on the highway or in the city.

2017 Nissan Altima Interior


When a car features good fuel economy, you will probably consider taking it for longer trips, so it is imperative that this ride be as smooth and as comfortable as possible. The right kind of suspension will make you have a pleasant ride and conversely, the wrong kind can result in a quite bumpy and uncomfortable trip. The Nissan Altima and the Toyota Camry feature the same strut type suspension for their front end. In looking at the kind of rear suspension of these two sedans, we can note that the Toyota Camry features strut rear suspension and the Nissan Altima features multi-link rear suspension, which offers a much smoother ride for its passengers. When it comes to the comfortability of your long trip or a just simple drive, the Nissan Altima definitely offers you a better ride.
