Did you know that our website is a great place to research Toyota's latest models, like the 2016 Camry, and even compare them to the competition? Continue reading below to see how the 2016 Toyota Camry mid-size sedan stacks up against its latest rival from Nissan, the 2016 Altima.
Standard Interior Amenities
No matter if you are looking to get into a new mid-size sedan at the lowest price possible or you want a fully-loaded, V6-equipped model with all the bells and whistles, the 2016 Toyota Camry will not disappoint. The 2016 Camry comes so well-equipped in standard base trim that it seems that anything above the base price is just icing on the cake! Standard features on the 2016 Camry include a rearview backup camera, 6.1-inch touchscreen display audio system, and an 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat. Nissan, on the other hand, does not offer any of the features as standard equipment on its 2016 Altima mid-size sedan. In order to get the rearview camera, large touchscreen, and power-adjustable front seats, you will have to add them as options or upgrade to a completely different Altima model. Either way, you will be paying a higher price for the Altima if you want a comparably equipped model to the 2016 Camry base model. The Camry LE base model's Entune Multimedia Bundle is packed with high-tech features, like hands-free phone capability, advanced voice recognition, phone book access, and music streaming, thanks to Bluetooth wireless technology. A six-speaker audio system with an AM/FM radio with CD player and MP3/WMA playback capability, auxiliary audio jack, and USB 2.0 port is also standard on the Camry base model. If you expect the latest technology and convenience features as standard on your new mid-size sedan, then you may want to pass on Nissan's Altima, and get yourself into the Toyota Camry.
Standard Safety Features
When it comes to standard features, the 2016 Toyota Camry offers much more in addition to its technology and convenience amenities. Drivers and families alike will be happy to learn that occupants of the 2016 Toyota Camry are protected by ten airbags. In addition to its driver and front passenger Advanced Airbag System, driver and front passenger seat-mounted side airbags, rear seat-mounted side airbags, and front and rear side curtain airbags, the 2016 Camry also provides knee airbags for the driver and front passenger. One of the most common types of injuries resulting from a front-end collision is knee injuries; that is why Toyota has outfitted many of its latest vehicles with standard knee airbags for both the driver and front passenger. Nissan does not currently provide front knee airbags on its Altima, nor does it have an answer to the Camry's Star Safety System suite of safety features, which also come standard on every new Camry. Six advanced safety features make up Toyota's Star Safety System, all of which can help prevent accidents or collisions before they occur. Included in this suite of safety features are Smart Stop Technology (SST), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA), Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), and an Anti-lock Brake System (ABS). Toyota believes that you should never have to upgrade to get critical safety features, and it shows with its impressive list of standard safety features on the 2016 Camry.
Advanced Safety Features
From the available Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) and Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) to Lane Departure Alert (LDA) and even Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC), Toyota offers a lengthy list of advanced safety features on its Camry. The 2016 Camry's Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) help keep the driver informed of surrounding vehicles that may be out of view. Backing out of a parking space or into the street just got a lot safer, thanks to the Camry's Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) and the standard rearview camera! The Camry's available Lane Departure Alert (LDA) system sends audible and visual alerts to the driver if the system detects an inadvertent lane departure. Underinflated tires are a serious safety hazard; that is why Toyota has equipped its new Camry with Direct Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS). Direct TPMS alerts the driver when a tire is underinflated, and you can even see which specific tire needs to be inflated by viewing the Camry's Multi-Information Display. Another feature that increases safety and convenience is Toyota's Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC), as it allows the Camry to maintain a preset, safe following distance behind the vehicle in front -- and eliminates the need to start, stop, and adjust your cruise control. While Nissan offers some similar safety features on its 2016 Altima, they will come at a price: Toyota's top of the line, V6-equipped Camry, the 2016 Camry XLE V6, starts at an MSRP of $32,205, while a comparably equipped 2016 Nissan Altima 3.5SL is priced at over a thousand dollars more, or $33,525. For advanced safety features at a more affordable price, choose Toyota's 2016 Camry over the 2016 Nissan Altima.
Not only does the 2016 Toyota Camry have comfortable seating, but it also provides more passenger space than the 2016 Nissan Altima. The Camry provides one cubic foot of additional passenger volume when compared to Nissan's Altima, meaning that passengers can stretch out and enjoy the ride. All five passengers will benefit from the Camry's greater passenger volume, as the Camry tops its rival from Nissan in all second-row dimensions, offering more rear legroom, headroom, hip room, and shoulder room. Front passengers also get more shoulder room and hip room in the Camry. If you care about the comfort of your passengers, why not drive the sedan with more interior space?
When it comes to cargo capacity, mid-size sedans have become increasingly spacious and versatile over the years. Case in point are the latest versions of the Camry and Altima. Both of these mid-size sedans provide an impressive 15.4 cubic feet of cargo space inside their trunks. As both come standard with 60/40 split-folding rear seatbacks, cargo capacity and versatility can increase when the rear passenger area is utilized as additional storage space. The pass-thru storage area that is exposed when the rear seats are folded down allows you to transport larger items easily, at a flip of the 60/40 split-folding seatback. However, since the 2016 Camry provides a more spacious second-row of seating, that extra level of spaciousness also means that maximum cargo capacity is also greater in the Camry.
