The Altima’s finer points include a quiet cabin, easy controls, a big trunk, a roomy and comfortable rear seat. And, for the first time, the Altima is available with all-wheel drive.
Like many recent competitors, the Altima is no longer available with a V6 engine. Instead, the top engine is now a turbo four cylinder.
Both acceleration and fuel economy are improved with the base 2.5-liter engine. The Altima is quick for its class, and its engine has a more refined sound than many competitors’. We measured 31 mpg overall, a 2 mpg improvement over the previous model.
