When you're on the search for a sleek and sporty sedan for your travels around the St. Charles, St. Louis, O'Fallon, and Saint Peters, MO, areas, you're going to want something with advanced performance features, a cozy interior cabin, and innovative safety systems. Two models you may be currently considering, are the Nissan Altima and the Toyota Camry.

Here at St. Charles Nissan, we're dedicated to helping our drivers find the right vehicle for their lifestyle, and we know that starts with the research process. To make it as easy as possible, we created this breakdown of the 2020 Nissan Altima vs. the 2020 Toyota Camry. Now, let's see how these two stack up against one another.

Performance and Powertrain Features

To get started, we'll take a look at the different performance features found in both of these sedans. We know how Missouri weather can get during those icy and snowy winter commutes, and it's important to have advanced traction and stability control so you don't have to worry about slipping and sliding.

In the 2020 Altima, there's an available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system, which continuously monitors the road conditions and adjusts power between your front and rear wheels to maintain traction control.

Over in the 2020 Camry, there's only a standard front-wheel drive system, which means you're not getting the same safety and grip you'd find with the Altima.

Interior Cabin Comfort

Now we'll head right inside and check out the interior cabin space.

Both sedans seat five riders, but in the Altima, you're going to get 100.8 cubic feet of passenger room, while the Camry offers just 99.3 cubic feet of passenger space.

As you can see, the Altima offers more headroom, legroom, and shoulder room than the Camry, meaning you'll be able to stretch out and relax more comfortably.

Back in the trunk of the Altima, there's 15.4 cubic feet of cargo room, while the Camry once again falls short, offering only 15.1 cubic feet of cargo space.

Innovative Safety Features

The Altima comes with the Nissan Safety Shield® 360 suite, which includes six driver-assistant safety features.

  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
  • Rear Automatic Braking
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Blind Spot Warning
  • High Beam Assist

With the Camry, you'll get the Toyota Safety Sense™ P suite, but it only includes four safety systems.

The Verdict: 2020 Nissan Altima vs Toyota Camry

While both these vehicles may be impressive choices for your travels around St. Charles, St. Louis, O'Fallon, and Saint Peters, MO, it's clear the 2020 Nissan Altima outperforms the 2020 Toyota Camry in crucial categories like performance, interior cabin space, and safety.
