The Team One Toyota website is helpful for more than shopping our current inventory: you can also research Toyota's models, like the new Camry, and even compare them to the competition. Let's see how the 2016 Toyota Camry stacks up against one of its classic rivals, the Nissan Altima.
One area where the 2016 Toyota Camry really separates itself from the 2016 Nissan Altima is in interior features. Standard on the 2016 Camry is a large, 6.1-inch touchscreen display audio system, a backup camera, and an 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat. Unfortunately for Nissan drivers, none of those amenities come as standard equipment on the 2016 Altima. Included with the base Camry LE's Entune Audio system is the Entune Multimedia Bundle, which, in addition to the 6.1-inch touch-screen display, also features advanced voice recognition, hands-free phone capability, phone book access, and music streaming via Bluetooth wireless technology. The AM/FM radio with CD player, MP3/WMA playback capability, auxiliary audio jack, USB 2.0 port can be enjoyed through the standard six-speaker sound system. As you can see, Toyota offers a more complete and well-rounded list of standard amenities on the Camry than what comes with the base Nissan Altima.
Both the 2016 Camry and Altima mid-size sedans offer a nice list of safety features, but when it comes to standard safety features, the Camry just edges out the Altima. Camry passengers are surrounded by ten airbags for their safety, including a driver and front passenger Advanced Airbag System; driver and front passenger seat-mounted side airbags; rear seat-mounted side airbags; and front and rear side curtain airbags. You won't find the Camry's innovative driver and front passenger knee airbags on the Altima; that is for sure! You also won't find the 2016 Camry's standard Star Safety System suite of safety features on the 2016 Altima. Toyota's Star Safety System consists of six advanced safety features that can work together to provide active safety for you and your loved ones. Included in the safety suite are Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist (BA), Smart Stop Technology (SST), Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRAC), and an Anti-lock Brake System (ABS).
If you are in search of a new mid-size sedan, then chances are that you will be transporting family, friends, or other loved ones around somewhat regularly. Drivers like you will be happy to learn that the 2016 Toyota Camry is available with a whole host of smart safety features, including driver-assist, active safety, and passive safety features. In addition to its coverage of standard front, knee, side, and side curtain airbags, the Camry is packed with lots of available safety features. While the backup camera comes standard on every 2016 Camry, additional safety technology available includes the available Blind Spot Monitor (BSM), Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA), Lane Departure Alert (LDA), Direct Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS), and even Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC). When the Camry's Blind Spot Monitor (BSM) detects a vehicle in your blind spot, it alerts the driver on the nearest side view mirror to the vehicle in question. The Camry's Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) works in a similar fashion: when you are backing out of a parking space or onto the street, the system provides both audible and visual cues for alerting you to approaching vehicles in your path. The available Lane Departure Alert (LDA) system will issue visual and audible alerts to the driver if an inadvertent lane departure or maneuver is detected. The convenience of Toyota's Direct TPMS is that it not only alerts you when a tire is underinflated, but it will tell you exactly which tire that is on your vehicle, as well as the current tire pressure. Toyota's Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC) is about safety and convenience, as it allows your Camry to maintain a safe following distance behind the vehicle in front of you, as well as limits the need to readjust your cruise control every time you move in and out of traffic. While some similar features are offered as options on the 2016 Nissan Altima, you will likely have to pay more for them. The top of the line 2016 Toyota Camry model, the Camry XLE V6, has a starting MSRP of $32,205, while a comparably equipped 2016 Nissan Altima 3.5SL starts at over a thousand dollars more, at $33,525.
If the comfort of your passengers is on your mind when you are shopping for a mid-size sedan, then be sure to find a sedan with plenty of space for all five passengers, such as the 2016 Camry. The Camry provides about one cubic foot of additional passenger volume than Nissan's Altima; the extra passenger space can be felt throughout the Camry's cabin, for all five passengers. In fact, the 2016 Camry bests the 2016 Altima in every second-row dimension, including legroom, headroom, shoulder room, and hip room! Even those these two sedans are comparable in overall width, the Camry better utilizes every square foot of interior space, as front passengers will enjoy more shoulder room and hip room in the Camry, too. It is clear that if you value space for all of your five passengers, then the 2016 Toyota Camry sedan is the way to go!
It is no secret that mid-size sedans have grown over the years, and that certainly goes for the Toyota Camry. The 2016 Camry and 2016 Altima can both haul 15.4 cubic feet of cargo behind the rear seats, in their spacious trunks. Their 60/40 split-folding rear seatbacks mean that cargo space can expand when there are not five passengers occupying the cabin. Fold down one or both sides of the split-folding rear seats and you have pass-thru storage that can handle items that are much longer than what the trunk alone can manage, such as a large TV or even some pre-assembled furniture. While both of these popular mid-size sedans clearly offer an impressive amount of cargo space, keep in mind that with the Camry's greater passenger volume, it is easier to utilize the second-row of seats for both passenger and cargo hauling than it is in the Altima.
