It is 2019 and the new midsize sedans are here. The modern midsize must have it all, and it must have it all at a reasonable price. The days of flawed or incomplete midsize vehicles are over. The modern midsize has to have great reliability, durability, performance, tech and safety... all at a great value.

Two of the strongest selling cars on the road are the midsize 2019 Nissan Altima and 2019 Toyota Camry. Both cars have strong consumer ratings and great track records. Both cars have great histories. Both cars are available now. Before you consider them equal, here are a few traits that you should consider.

When it comes to dependability, most would agree that the Japanese car makers are some of the best on the road. When it comes down to a straight debate between the Toyota and the Nissan, the Nissan wins, hands down. Recent studies indicate that the Altima might be more dependable than the Camry, however. The reason for Nissan's excellent reliability is simple: they do not put a part in a car unless it is perfect. While the Altima might not be as innovative as a high end, high dollar luxury car, it will start every morning and seldom leave you stranded.


In a similar note, the 2019 Altima offers modestly better performance than the 2019 Camry. Excellent driving dynamics come standard with the Altima, as it offers a sport-tuned suspension and paddle shifters. The Altima driving performance has been a highlight for the best selling model for years. On paper, the Toyota Camry offers more: more HP, more torque, etc... but the new 2019 Camry has an unrefined powertrain. Everything is new and the kinks are still being worked out.

2018 Nissan Altima Interior


Of course, performance notes are somewhat silly, anyway. Who among us intends to race the Indy 500 in a mid-size sedan? Cars drive from point A to point B. With a plush premium interior and plenty of space, the Altima will get you to point B in comfort. This is a category that might come down to individual preference, but the Altima has great ratings on comfort. Reviewers loved the way the vehicle handled. The Camry did well in comfort reviews, but the Altima received rave reviews.
