Significant evolutions in features, finesse, and frugality have typically made the Altima a perennial top pick in this popular segment.

NOTEWORTHY FEATURES

Excellent Fuel Economy

Whether you're purchasing the Altima 2.5 or 3.5 model, you're going to be the beneficiary of tremendous fuel economy. The 2.5 model is powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that cranks out 182 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque, and gets an EPA-estimated 31 mpg combined (27 city/38 highway). The 3.5 model, which is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine, posted solid fuel economy numbers as well at 26 mpg combined (22 city/32 highway).

Upscale Cabin Area

Amongst competitors, the Altima boasts one of the nicer cabins with a simple, yet upscale feel that reveals quality construction and the use of many high-quality materials. Drivers and front passengers are treated to NASA-inspired zero gravity seats, which are well-shaped and supportive. The technology available inside the Altima is also worth mentioning, as the NissanConnect Apps system provides support for various smartphone applications and is coupled with a 5-inch touchscreen that can accommodate multiple users.

Agile, Engaging Ride

When it comes to family sedans, there may not be a more rewarding vehicle to drive. The ride is hushed and composed, doing well to absorb bumps in the road. On winding roads and switchbacks, the Altima navigates the road in fine fashion, as the precision handling and well-tuned suspension reveals itself around turns and bends.

ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS

Transmission

It's not that the continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) is some far-flung concept (in fact, it is becoming somewhat the standard in newer vehicles), however it may not be to everyone's liking. CVT on the Altima has a tendency to rev the engine noisily during modest acceleration and drag it down when at low rpm, particularly on four-cylinder models.

Backseat

Though the Altima provides a comfortable ride for passengers up front, but the backseat can make individuals 6-foot and above feel a bit cramped. If you're looking to accommodate taller individuals, you may want to consider other similar options before you buy.

Braking

If it seems like we're nitpicking, we are. The Altima has few equals when it comes to family sedans, however if you're looking for the Altima 2.5 to stop on a dime, it only came to a stop from 60 mph in 123 feet; an average mark for the class. Yet, it should be noted that the Altima 3.5 came to a halt from 60 mph in an astounding 114 feet --10 feet shorter than the norm.
