- 2025 Coming Soon -

2025 is rumored to be the last year for the Nissan Altima but we haven't heard anything official. The last update for the Altima was a mid-cycle refresh in 2023 which brought a new nose and more standard features. As the last iteration of the current Altima, the 2025 model should be close to the current model on sale. We don't expect many design changes or any new tech to be added since the model may be calling it quits. On the outside, the current Altima has a bold and sporty contemporary des... Read more

Midsize sedans are still some of the most popular vehicles on the road, making the segment one of the most cutthroat in the industry. The 2018 Nissan Altima enters the fight with two powertrains to choose from, new technology, and a more simplified lineup for consumers to explore. While not as sporty or enjoyable to drive as some of its competitors, the new Altima makes a strong case for itself as a daily driver. A few noteworthy changes have been made to the new 2018 Altima. The first of whic... Read more

1998 - 2001 Nissan Altima

Since its 1993 introduction, Altima's strength has been its slightly smaller size, lower price, and more nimble handling than the mid-range, mid-size Nissan Maxima, Toyota Camry, or Honda Accord. Faster, roomier, and more sophisticated than a compact, Altima has offered a real, between-floors alternative that some people find just right. That's why we were a little surprised when Nissan redesigned the Altima last year, making it longer and more powerful than before. But we needn't have worried, because neither the extra inches nor the increased horsepower diminished the Altima's unique charm. ... Read more

Introduced four years ago, the Altima is an ongoing success story for Nissan, filling the gap between the compact Sentra sedan and the larger Maxima. Assembled in Smyrna, Tennessee, the mid-size front-wheel drive Altima contends in the fiercely competitive family sedan market against other smaller mid-size entries such as the Ford Contour, Mercury Mystique, Mazda 626, Chryler Cirrus and Dodge Stratus--to name just a few. Positioned as "The Affordable Luxury Sedan," the Altima promises Japanese-quality construction, spry performance and a touch of cachet--all at an affordable price. The car has... Read more
