As shown in the comparison chart above, you can see how the 2021 Toyota Camry and the 2021 Nissan Altima can share few similarities. For more impact and power in your drive, the Toyota Camry offers greater horsepower than the Nissan Altima can offer. Also, the Toyota Camry continues to take lead in the mid-size sedan market by being the only model that has a V6 engine available. Customers looking to customize their future car will be excited to choose between the 12 different trim levels in coordination of their prospective powertrains and the 13 different exterior colors of the 2021 Toyota Camry. The 2021 Nissan Altima has limited options for customization with 9 exterior variations and only 5 trim levels. The Nissan Altima also doesn't have any eco-friendly or Hybrid options, but the Toyota Camry has four Hybrid trims - LE, SE, XLE, and XSE.

Connectivity and comfort are optimal in the new 2021 Toyota Camry. Available in the Toyota Camry is a 9-inch touchscreen display located on the center of the dashboard as the Nissan Altima only has a 8-inch touch infotainment display. Standard capabilities that come with the Toyota Camry includes Apple Carplay, Android Auto, and Amazon Alexa. Additionally, SiriusXM is offered with a 3-month All Access trial subscription in the Toyota Camry. The Nissan Altima also has these capabilities except for the hands-free Amazon Alexa feature. A few more available upgrades that the Toyota Camry has for customers include adding the auto-dimming rearview mirror, dual-zone automatic climate control, HomeLink universal transceiver, wireless compatible charging station, and the Smart Key System. Even though the Nissan Altima has standard Intelligent Key with a Push Button Ignition, you'll have to purchase the Nissan Altima Platinum trim to receive the auto-dimming inside rearview mirror, Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control, and HomeLink Universal Transceiver. 

Staying safe and focused while you navigate the roads ahead is a must. And although both 2021 models received the 5-Star Overall Safety Ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the 2021 Toyota Camry still outshines in safety features. All Toyota Camry trims are equipped with the Toyota Safety Sense 2.5+ which include: Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, Auto High Beams, Lane Departure Alert with Steering Assist, Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, and Road Sign Assist. Not all safety features come standard with every Nissan Altima trim. Other favorite safety features we enjoy in the Toyota Camry are the 24/7 Roadside Assistance with Safety Connect, Intelligence Clearance Sonar with Rear Cross-Traffic Braking, and Bird's Eye View Camera with Perimeter Scan.
