If you are in the market for a new mid-size sedan but are feeling overwhelmed by your options, then perhaps you should start your search with the latest version of America's best-selling mid-size sedan, the 2017 Toyota Camry. An all-new, redesigned Camry debuted for the 2015 model year, but Toyota continues to improve its ever-popular Camry each year, including for 2017, with improved interior amenities and greater use of technology, like a crisp Multi-Information Display that now comes standard on every Camry model.

How much are you willing to pay for added amenities? If you are shopping for a well-rounded mid-size sedan that is packed with modern features at a highly affordable price, then it is tough to top Toyota's 2017 Camry. While the Maxima is positioned as a slight more upscale car than the standard Camry, you will have to pay greatly for its amenities. Including destination charge, the 2017 Camry can be had for as little as $23,935 MSRP, while the Nissan Maxima base model will cost you somewhere near its starting MSRP of $33,395. That's right; the starting MSRP of the 2017 Camry is nearly $10,000 less than that of the 2017 Nissan Maxima! The majority of Camry sedans sold are equipped with the standard 2.5-liter engine, which proves that many drivers find that the inline 4-cylinder provides more than enough power and performance for everyday life. While the Maxima comes standard with a 3.5-liter V6, you can also get a 3.5-liter V6 in the new Camry, starting at $31,370 -- or a couple thousand less than the Nissan.
Whether you want to get into a shiny new mid-size sedan at the lowest price possible or you are seeking a fully-loaded, V6-equipped sedan with all the latest bells and whistles, the Toyota Camry will not disappoint. Toyota's latest Camry comes so well-appointed even in its standard base trim that anything above the standard model is simply icing on the cake! Standard cabin features on the 2017 Camry include a 6.1-inch touchscreen display audio system, rearview backup camera, and an 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat. While Nissan's Maxima offers many similar features, some also as standard, keep in mind that the base price of the Maxima is nearly $10,000 more than a similarly equipped Camry. Even when you take away the Maxima's advantage of V6 power by comparing it to the 2017 Camry V6 models, the Maxima seems overpriced for what you get as standard features. Toyota's Entune Multimedia Bundle is packed with high-tech features like music streaming, hands-free phone capability, advanced voice recognition, and phone book access; best of all, it comes standard on the Camry LE base model! An AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system with a powerful 6-speaker stereo, auxiliary audio jack, and USB 2.0 port is also standard on the Camry base model. If you want the latest convenience and technology features as standard on an affordable new mid-size sedan, then you will want to pass on Nissan's new Maxima and get yourself into the Toyota Camry.
Who wouldn't want more space and comfort in their new sedan? While these two sedans are comparable in overall length, the 2017 Camry outshines Nissan's 2017 Maxima with over four cubic feet of additional interior volume. Best of all, that additional space can be felt through each seating position, so all five passengers will benefit from the Camry's greater passenger volume. Rear seat passengers are likely to prefer riding in the Camry, since it provides nearly an inch-and-a-half more rear headroom and a whopping 4.7 cubic feet more rear legroom! Front passengers will also appreciate the extra shoulder room and hip room in the Camry. When more space matters, why not drive the mid-size sedan that offers more interior volume than its (more costly) competition?
If these two sedans are comparable in overall length, and the Camry crushes the Maxima in overall interior volume, then you might think that the Nissan makes up for the lack of passenger space with a large trunk. Unfortunately for the Maxima, though, it falls short again. With 15.4 cubic feet of cargo volume in the trunk, the 2017 Camry offers one of the more spacious trunks in its class. The Maxima, with just 14.3 cubic feet of cargo capacity behind the seats, is clearly lacking in usable space throughout its cabin and trunk. Some drivers may prefer the swooping, admittedly stylish lines of Nissan's 2017 Maxima, but you will pay for that style with decreased space inside the cabin. To maximize passenger space and comfort, along with your ability to transport cargo, choose the 2017 Camry over the 2017 Maxima.
As you can see, there are many great reasons to get behind the wheel of a 2017 Toyota Camry. Drivers and families near Oxnard, Santa Barbara, Thousand Oaks, Simi Valley, and Northridge, can visit Ventura Toyota's nearby showroom to explore the new Camry further.
