Nissan Altima Overview

The Nissan Altima is a spacious, mid-size family sedan that emphasizes an engaging experience for the driver.

Significant attention to features, refined controls, and fuel economy have made the Altima an important mainstay for this popular segment of cars.

Nissan Altima History

Introduced in 1993, the Nissan Altima was actually considered a compact-class vehicle. When the third generation was introduced in 2002, it was the first of a more distinctive lineup of cars that is closer to the mid-size sedan customers are used to today. The Altima then evolved in 2007 as an alternative to other popular mid-size sedans, with a mild design refresh to follow in 2010. Nissan followed the trend for its next generation, launching the fifth generation in 2013 and offering a mid-year refresh in 2016.

How It Drives

The Nissan Altima is impressive. Its simple controls ensure the driving experience is both rewarding and approachable. Its engines offer solid performance and fuel economy, and it combines a comfortable ride with coordinated handling. It also has a very nice cabin for its class, crafted with high-quality materials and spacious seats.

Used Nissan Altima Value

Even with such tight competition, the Nissan Altima is one of benchmarks for the mid-size family sedan. It provides a dynamic drive with luxurious comfort, style, fuel efficiency, and performance. The Altima is a highly-competent family commuter that typically competes against other family sedans.

Nissan Altima Standard Features

Current Nissan Altimas are built with options between a 2.5L four-cylinder engine and a 3.5L V6 engine. While not capable of breaking any speed records, both engines still deliver solid performance with the V6 inching out over the four-cylinder in terms of acceleration. As a tradeoff, the four-cylinder excels in fuel efficiency rather than performance. Front-wheel drive is standard on all Nissan Altima vehicles.
