George Kennedy Test Drive Review:

Shopping for a modern midsize sedan is tougher than you may think. Whether we're talking about the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Mazda6, or Hyundai Sonata, it seems like each year we con...

Patricia Mayo Preview:

The Galant carries over into 2012 unchanged, with abundant rumors that it will take a bow after this model year. Many harsh things can be said of the Galant: It's outdated, cheaply mad...

Power Ranked 2019 Toyota Camry XLE FWD worse.
"Both 4 cylinder engines were quit peppy. Didnt notice much different in pick-up acceleration. "
Handling Ranked 2019 Toyota Camry XLE FWD worse.
"I thought the handling of both cars was excellent. But for other reasons, I choose the Altima"
Looks/Style Ranked 2019 Toyota Camry XLE FWD worse.
"The front view of he Atlima has the looks of a BMW to me. The Camry was just average."
Front Seats Ranked 2019 Toyota Camry XLE FWD worse.
"Front seats in both were very good, but preferred the zero gravity feel Altima has. I feel that the Altima seats will be great for a long trip. Also, I preferred cloth interior vs. leather in the Camry."
Back Seats Ranked 2019 Toyota Camry XLE FWD worse.
"Both cars had ample space for 3 adults. I did not make my decision based on the back seat."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2019 Toyota Camry XLE FWD worse.
"Both have ample cargo area. In the Altima the back two seats fold down for extra cargo area. Not sure about the Camry? Made my decision based on other factors."
Family Car Ranked 2019 Toyota Camry XLE FWD worse.
"Numerous airbags all over the place including rear seating airbags. The air vents to the back seat of the Altima are a very nice addition. The steering controls on the Altima were superior, including having the car watch out for movement outside the highway lane markers."
Would Buy Ranked 2019 Toyota Camry XLE FWD worse.
"Price, Price, Price. Got the 2019 Altima sv for $21,600 ($29,725 MSRP)."
