When it comes to dependability, most would agree that the Japanese car makers are some of the best on the road. When it comes down to a straight debate between the Toyota and the Nissan, the Nissan wins, hands down. Recent studies indicate that the Altima might be more dependable than the Camry, however. The reason for Nissan's excellent reliability is simple: they do not put a part in a car unless it is perfect. While the Altima might not be as innovative as a high end, high dollar luxury car, it will start every morning and seldom leave you stranded.

Value Package

Nissans tend to be less expensive, and features are similar, giving them an edge over the Camry as a value package. The Altima has best-in-class front seat spaciousness, too. In fact, it has 100.8 cubic feet in its cabin whereas the Camry lags behind with 100.4 cubes. You’ll notice an extra inch of headroom and more than an extra inch of legroom. It should also be noted that the Camry’s low seating position is less desirable than the Altima’s higher-placed driver’s chair. Travelers will prefer the 15.4-cu.ft. trunk in the Altima to the smaller 14.1-inch trunk in the Camry L.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

Android-based smartphones and iPhones now offer special car connectivity that goes beyond what the average car-based system can do. Nissan has added these to its menu. Toyota only has Apple CarPlay. As such, Nissan Altima owners will be able to access more apps and to do more with voice commands than ever before. The best example is navigation. Using Google or Apple Maps, the smartphone owner can stream directions to the screen.

2018 Nissan Altima Interior

Interior Technology

When it comes to interior technology, the Altima base model gives you more than the Camry L or LE. That's because it comes with a standard two USB ports and two USB-C ports, whereas the Camry doesn't offer type-C ports. The Altima also rocks a 3-month trial of SIRIUSXM® Radio, while the Camry requires an upgrade to receive the streaming service. Add in the Altima's NissanConnect® 8-inch touch-screen display and you have a vehicle that's worth being proud of.

Standard Automatic Braking

Both sedans earned five stars in federal crash testing, and both automakers have added a standard autobrake function to their sedans. Nissan offers some safety systems that are more advanced or not found on the Toyota. For instance, only the Altima offers an advanced autobrake that can watch several car lengths ahead. This signals the driver to stop sooner and helps avoid an emergency situation better. Keeping a better eye on your tires, Nissan Easy Fill Tire Alert will beep at you to tell you when the correct air pressure has been reached.
