If you’re looking for a new sedan, performance and safety are at the top of your list of essentials. The 2015 Toyota Camry and the 2015 Nissan Altima are two popular sedans that meet these requirements, but which one has the edge? Take a look at the breakdown of these two base model vehicles to decide for yourself which is the smartest choice for you.

Safety and Warranty

Whether you choose the Camry or the Altima, you’ll get basics like electronic stability control, front-wheel drive, and height-adjustable front seatbelts with pretensioners. However, the Camry offers a few more important features like Safety Connect technology, a Pre-Collision System, and daytime running lights.

The Camry is also a better performer in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s front crash tests, earning the top 5-star rating over the Altima’s lower 4-star rating. In tests from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the Camry was found to have a 9 percent lower fatal accident history than the Altima. In fact, the IIHS named the Camry a “Top Pick Plus” for 2015. Further, consider that Toyota pays for scheduled maintenance for 2 years or 25,000 miles. Nissan does not offer this warranty at all.

Powertrain and Performance

The Camry provides a smoother and faster ride. When comparing the base 2.5L 4-cylinder engines, the Camry excels. The Camry accelerates from 0 to 30 mph in 2.7 seconds, compared to the Altima’s 2.9 seconds. The Camry also edges out the Altima in a quarter mile race, reaching 89.3 mph compared to the Altima’s 88.1 mph.

The Camry also has a superior suspension system. The suspension on the Camry offers gas-charged shocks and has .81 G’s of cornering force. The Altima does not have gas-charged shocks and delivers only .79 G’s of cornering force.

Ergonomics and Space

The Camry offers a number of smart design extras in the cabin that the Altima does not provide. One-touch power windows allow passengers to roll up the Camry’s windows quickly in a rainstorm. Automatic dimming high beams, automatic headlights, and heated side mirrors add luxury to the Camry’s exterior. The Altima does not offer these features.
