The perfect midsize sedan could be in your life sooner than you think. The team at Maguire Toyota is taking a closer look at two midsize sedans to help you find the one that's right for you. This 2019 Toyota Camry vs. Nissan Altima comparison will explore your options in Ithaca, Corning, and Binghamton.

We'll talk about vehicle performance, some of the cabin comforts you'll find, and the tech features designed to make your travels more fun and intuitive.

Camry vs Altima Performance

The 2019 Camry has power you might not expect from a midsize sedan. The 4-cylinder base engine produces 203 horsepower and performs well on both city streets and the highway, too. The Camry can also be powered by a V6 engine, which delivers 301 horsepower. Both engines are linked to an 8-speed automatic transmission which improves driving stability and carries a low center of gravity.

The 2019 Nissan Altima features a 188-horsepower base engine, which is a 4-cylinder. The V6 has been removed from the engine lineup, which gives the Camry the advantage in that regard. The Altima performs well, but the Camry has unmatched power.

Customize your Camry driving experience with the drive switch. The sport mode provides sharper acceleration, while the ECO mode adjusts the throttle for maximum efficiency. Normal mode? That's a blend of the two.

Altima vs Camry Cabin Comforts

There's space for five people inside both the Toyota Camry and Nissan Altima. Those in the front and back will be comfortable with spacious seats both up front and in the second row. The Camry features an available panoramic roof with power tilt/slide moonroof, which brings in twice the light as the average moonroof. There's also a power sunshade which can keep you cool if it starts to get a bit toasty.

Both vehicles have plenty of space to store important items from shopping bags to luggage for a vacation. The Camry carries about 15 cubic feet of trunk space, while the Altima checks in at 15.4 cubic feet.

Want to provide a bit of a boost to your drive? The Toyota Camry has available steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, giving you control over shifts.

Toyota vs Nissan Technology

Each vehicle carries its own respective infotainment system - the Camry comes with the Entune™ 3.0 system, and the Altima features the NissanConnect® setup. All you need to do is simply connect your smartphone to the touchscreen to stay in touch. Apple CarPlay™ is offered in both vehicles. Read text messages, make a hands-free phone call, or choose a new song from your saved playlist.

Stay up-to-date on what's happening around you, too. The available Bird's Eye View Camera on the Camry uses front, side, and rear cameras to display a panoramic overhead look at things. Similar technology can be found in the Nissan Altima by way of the Around View Monitor, helping you see what's going on.
