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’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.
