2016 Nissan Altima vs 2016 Toyota Camry vs 2016 Honda Accord
Competition is fierce in the midsize family sedan segment, and the Toyota Camry, the Nissan Altima, and the Honda Accord are all strong contenders. Design updates, fuel economy and safety improvements, and new tech features -- between all 3 models, there's a lot to consider! We hope this three-way comparison of the 2016 Nissan Altima vs 2016 Toyota Camry vs 2016 Honda Accord will help you sort out the strengths and weaknesses of these vehicles, and get a better idea of what each one has to offer.
Out of these 3 models, only the Toyota Camry is offering a hybrid sedan in 2016 -- the Honda Accord hybrid won't be available this year. The Camry has also upgraded its infotainment offerings, although the 2016 Nissan Altima and the 2016 Honda Accord have made major additions on that front as well. The 2016 Nissan Altima's new design looks similar to the Maxima and Murano, and it's improved its fuel economy, while the 2016 Honda Accord has expanded the availability of its excellent safety suite. Now, let's get into a more detailed comparison.
Head to Head to Head
All 3 models come with a base 4-cylinder engine, with the option to upgrade to a more powerful V-6. As we said earlier, the Toyota Camry is the only one to offer an additional hybrid engine option. With base engines, the 2016 Camry gets the worst fuel economy of the three, and the 2016 Nissan Altima gets the best. With that hybrid engine, though, the 2016 Camry gets an absurdly impressive 43 city / 39 highway MPG.
Honda Sensing driver assistance tech is now available even on the base model, which helps make the Accord a good bet for safety. The 2016 Toyota Camry stands out in the infotainment department, offering a better standard audio setup than either of the others with its Entune touchscreen audio display and voice recognition.
The Nissan Altima is also offering many new infotainment and tech features, including Siri Eyes Free voice control and many new driver assistance systems. Nissan is also touting the 2016 Altima's new shocks, springs, and improved electrohydraulic steering, which give the driving experience a smoother and more luxurious feel.
