2020 Camry vs. 2020 Nissan Maxima

Both the Toyota Camry and Nissan Maxima are two of the most bought midsize sedans today. If you’re thinking of purchasing a sedan yourself, you may be wondering which one's the right choice for you. 

Here, our professionals from the Stevenson-Hendrick Toyota dealership in Jacksonville, NC, show you why the 2020 Camry is better. 

Both the 2020 Toyota Camry and 2020 Nissan Maxima are powered by a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder base engine, with an optional 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 engine. While the Camry generates 301 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque, the Maxima boasts 300 hp and 261 lb-ft of torque. 

Again, the Camry outperforms the Maxima by giving an impressive fuel economy of 22/32 MPG, compared to the Maxima’s 20/30 MPG. 

The Toyota Camry, with its bigger frame, unique grille, black roof, and curved windows, looks sportier than the Nissan Maxima. The TRD model, in particular, has a lot of personality. Unlike the Maxima, the Camry is built on contemporary design and looks like the perfect 21st-century sedan. 

The 2020 Toyota Camry and 2020 Nissan Maxima are both 5-seater sedans. But when it comes to legroom, the Camry is more spacious, giving a good 4 inches more in the rear seat. 

While both sedans have premium cabins, the Camry (especially the XSE V6 model) is a class apart. Its gorgeous leather-wrapped adjustable seats look quite alluring. 

The Toyota Camry comes with dual-zone automatic climate control, ambient lighting, a dashboard with intuitive controls, Qi-compatible wireless smartphone charging, an integrated backup camera with projected path, a 4.2-inch TFT display with an odometer, and a 7-inch touchscreen with navigation. 

The Camry also comes with JBL Clari-Fi® speakers and is compatible with Bluetooth, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay. In terms of cargo space, the Camry boasts 99 cu-ft with the rear seats folded down, compared to the Nissan Maxima’s 96.4 cu-ft.
Both Nissan and Toyota are safety-conscious. But the Camry’s state-of-the-art Star Safety System™ gives greater protection to passengers. This system comes with advanced airbags, remote key access, Smart Stop Technology®, a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection, front & rear crumple zones, and many more.
