TCC’s Bottom Line
Following improvements that hit all the right spots, the 2014 Nissan Altima is a solid choice for those who don't mind a CVT. The 2013 Toyota Camry is no standout for design, but it's more than ever the sensible pick for those who value comfort, value, and frugality above all else.
