In the mid-size sedan segment, to stand out, a car needs to come with eye-catching style, efficiency, and power. The 2017 Nissan Altima has all of that and so much more. We’ll compare the Altima to the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry to help you see the differences.
You might be surprised to learn that the Altima is the most efficient of these three models. It delivers an EPA-estimated 39 mpg highway, while the Accord gets 36 mpg and the Camry only achieves 33 mpg.
If you’re looking for a powerful sedan, make sure you choose the Altima. Its available V6 engine delivers 270 horsepower, while the Camry only gets up to 268 horsepower. With the Altima you can outpace and outperform the competition.
Tall drivers will also want to find themselves in the Altima. It offers more front head and legroom than both the Accord and Camry. In the Altima, drivers will enjoy 40 inches of headroom and 45 inches of legroom. The Accord comes with 39.1 inches of headroom and 42.5 inches of legroom. And, the Camry only offers 38.8 inches of headroom and 41.6 inches of legroom.
While both the Accord and Camry have available advanced safety features, they do not have what the Altima does—class-exclusive Predictive Forward Collision Warning. This system monitors not just the car in front of you, but the car in front of that one, too, meaning it can see what you sometimes can’t.
The Altima also makes filling up your tires easy with the class-exclusive Easy-Fill Tire Alert. Just like other cars, the Altima will alert you when your tire pressure is low. However, unlike other cars, it will tell you which tire is the culprit, and when you’ve added enough air, the Altima will honk the horn.
