The mid-size sedan segment is the most competitive in the Automotive Industry and here we compare two leading vehicles battling for your loyalty. The Toyota Camry is the sales leader for the segment and the Nissan Altima has been revised to challenge the Camry’s dominance.
The Toyota Camry interior reflects the car’s no-nonsense appeal. It is spacious and comfortable with all the necessary controls right in front of you. You can choose between cloth or leather seats depending on your trim level and heated seats are also available. A power tilt and slide moonroof with one-touch action and an acoustically insulated windshield make sure that you enjoy your drive, wherever you’re going.
Nissan’s signature zero-gravity front seats are a standard offering with complete back support. You can choose between cloth or leather upholstery and you also get heated front seats.
When it comes to legroom, the Altima offers more legroom in the front while the Camry offers more rear legroom.
