Nissan Altima Overview

The well-rounded, roomy Altima delivers excellent fuel economy. Both the 182-hp, 2.5-liter four-cylinder and 270-hp, 3.5-liter V6 use a CVT that works well. We got a very good 31-mpg overall in our tests of the four-cylinder, and the V6 got 24-mpg overall. Handling is rather ordinary though ultimately secure. Both versions deliver an absorbent, comfortable ride, but it is significantly better in the 2.5 S. The display in the instrument cluster includes navigation information, text-message notification, and audio data. Blind-spot and lane-departure warning systems are available. Reliability has been below average.
