How does the 2015 Nissan Altima compare to Toyota’s Camry?
Both the Altima and the Camry come equipped with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine as standard, but when you compare power and efficiency, it’s not so close. The 2015 Altima’s engine is paired with an advanced Xtronic CVT® continuously variable transmission, which aids the efficient four-cylinder to achieve impressive fuel economy of 27 city/38 highway mpg. The Camry’s 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine is connected to an older six-speed automatic transmission, which while reliable, doesn’t help fuel-efficiency, as the Camry manages just 25 city/35 highway mpg. The Altima once again bests the Camry in standard power and torque. The 2015 Nissan Altima offers drivers 180 lb-ft of torque and 182 horsepower, while Camry drivers must settle for 170 lb-ft of torque and 178 hp.
The Altima is consistently one of the best values in its class, and it’s no wonder when you see the long list of standard features. Unfortunately for drivers who choose a base Camry, you won’t find many of the Altima’s standard amenities like one-touch power controls for all windows, smart-key system with remote keyless entry, rear passenger area reading lights, and of course, the Altima’s silky smooth CVT drivetrain. All of these popular features are provided on the Altima at a starting MSRP of $19,987; the Camry starts at $22,425 with far less desirable standard amenities.
Can you guess which vehicle offers more interior capacity? That’s right, the Altima once again beats the Camry soundly, with three more inches of headroom and four more inches of legroom for front passengers than Toyota’s sedan. The 2015 Altima also has a larger fuel tank, which, with the already superior fuel economy, means you won’t have to fill up nearly as often as Camry drivers. If you live near Fairfield County or New Haven County, CT, and are shopping for a new mid-size sedan, make sure you check out the 2015 Nissan Altima at Napoli Nissan. Remember: If your car doesn’t say Napoli on it, you paid too much.View Inventory
