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 an impressive 31 mpg overall in our tests of the four-cylinder, while the V6 got 24 mpg overall. Handling is rather ordinary, though ultimately secure. Both cars have a mostly 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.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
