Nissan's bestselling sedan has carved an enviable place for itself in the midsize market. Buyers have gravitated en masse to the Altima's youthful looks, rich interior, and strong fuel economy. While some competitors offer more space, the Altima excels in enough areas to place it among the best in the segment.
Debuting on most versions is NissanConnect Apps, a platform for interfacing with popular smartphone applications like Pandora and Facebook. The 2.5 S model can get a Sport Value Package and Display Audio Package for the first time. The Technology Package, previously available only on the top-tier SL, can now be ordered on the SV. The Altima Coupe, which was based on the previous-generation sedan, has been discontinued.Read more »
The base Altima carries the 2.5-liter four-cylinder and CVT, along with all the expected equipment in this class like a CD player, Bluetooth connectivity, and power windows and locks. You also get keyless ignition, a nice touch at this price, but -- oddly enough -- cruise control is not available. The 2.5 rides on 16-inch steels wheels.
The 2.5 S adds an upgraded instrument cluster and a six-speaker sound system. You also get extra conveniences such as automatic headlights, cruise control, and a power driver's seat. Many buyers will consider the S the least they can live with in a daily driver.
The available Sport Value Package includes alloy wheels, remote ignition, and a rear spoiler. Buyers can also select the Display Audio Package with a 5-inch touchscreen, a USB port, satellite radio, a rearview camera, and the all-new NissanConnect Apps.
The 2.5 SL offers a high level of equipment while retaining four-cylinder efficiency. Along with most everything found in the midrange SV, the SL carries a leather interior with eight-way driver power and heat in front, a heated steering wheel, a nine-speaker Bose audio system, and LED taillights. A sunroof is available as a standalone option.
Available on all SL models, the Technology Package includes a 7-inch touchscreen, voice controls, navigation, and key safety features: blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane-departure warning.

Nimble and refined, but not as quick with base engine
Spacious interior, available coupe version, ride might be too firm for some
Big on comfort and efficiency, but uninspired handling
Powerful V6, slick style, not as roomy
