The first Altima appeared in dealer showrooms in 1993. And while the first two generations didn’t dazzle buyers, a 2002 redesign got their attention.
Now in its fifth generation, the Altima has held their interest: It was America’s second bestselling car in 2011. The current generation, though less sporty than past models, continues the theme of a refined driving experience and conservatively elegant design. The Altima also continues to offer a 6-cylinder option when some other midsize competitors have dropped theirs.
