How the Nissan Altima Beats Out the Competition

Looking for a quality sedan that's feature-rich and ready for anything? The new Nissan Altima sedan is a great choice, with sleek styling, great features, and plenty of power--but there are many other options out there these days. We want to make sure you find the right ride for you, so we've put together a brief comparison of the Nissan Altima with some of its biggest competitors: The Ford Fusion, the Toyota Camry, and the Hyundai Sonata.

The Nissan Altima Compared to the Toyota Camry

While both the Nissan Altima Platinum and the Toyota Camry XSE are fine performing vehicles, Nissan gives you a more enjoyable experience on the road thanks to its rich features. You'll enjoy remote engine start, a heated steering wheel, power seat memory, and a nine-speaker Bose® premium audio system. These features just aren't available on the Toyota Camry.

The Nissan Altima Compared to the Ford Fusion

Some drivers consider the Ford Fusion when shopping for sedans, but you'll find yourself paying a lot more at the pump with the Fusion. The Nissan Altima earns 28 MPG city and 39 MPG highway for a combined 32 MPG. The Ford Fusion is much less efficient with 21 MPG city, 31 MPG highway, and 25 MPG combined.

The Nissan Altima Compared to the Hyundai Sonata

Although the Nissan Altima and the Hyundai Sonata are similarly priced and equipped, you'll enjoy better, more versatile performance from the Nissan Altima. The Nissan Altima 2.0 Platinum VC-T offers more torque and better fuel economy than the Hyundai Sonata Limited 2.0T, and if you're looking for the confidence and command of all-wheel-drive, only the Nissan Altima offers it.
