The American midsize sedan class has always inspired fierce competition between makers. And while most midsize sedans are relatively similar, it’s the details that make one stand out over another. The 2017 Toyota Camry and the 2017 Nissan Altima are both new entries into the midsize sedan class this year, but which takes home the title of top choice?
Both the 2017 Camry and 2017 Altima check off many of the same boxes. In terms of size, they’re exactly the same in many measurements. When it comes to engines, both use 2.5-liter, 6-cylinder models. Despite being more than a ton and a half, both even weigh within 50 pounds of each other. But it’s the spacious interior, sportier features, and most of all the technology that give the 2017 Camry the edge.

All midsize sedans offer comfortable interiors, but when it comes to the 2017 Camry and 2017 Altima, the Camry offers more passenger volume and space from front to back. From basic passenger volume (102.7 ft³ to 101.9 ft³) to rear leg room (38.9 in. to 36.1) to front shoulder room (58 in. to 56.4), the 2017 Camry simply offers more space for both drivers and passengers to stretch out and feel comfortable.
For the most part, sedans look and feel like sedans, but the 2017 Camry is an exception to the rule. With its sportier look and feel and available ultra-suede sport seats, the 2017 Camry feels like a much sportier car than the 2017 Altima. Add in the available steering wheel mounted paddle shifters and even the driving experience of the 2017 Camry is on another level.
But where the 2017 Camry really takes an edge over its competitors, including the Altima, is in its technology features. The 2017 Camry boasts a wireless charging system that will allow drivers to easily charge any device, an available Entune App Suite that allows easy access to apps like Pandora or IHeartRadio, and a navigation system powered by HD radio that provides real-time traffic information.
Available in four different trim levels – LE, SE, XLE and XSE – the 2017 Toyota Camry gives consumers options in a midsize sedan market that can often feel dull and boring. The 2017 Camry offers more interior space, a sportier look and feel, and far more technology options than the 2017 Nissan Altima, making it stick out in a class full of similar vehicles.
