Altima is a very important car for Nissan first off they sell a ton of these and competition in the family sedan segment is crazy intense another which is a whole lot riding on this redesign we borrow 2 alternates from Nissan to take a first Dr. I. So. Previous Altman was a pretty good base to build on is actually a consumer reports’topic family sedan for several years this time the Altamaha so much sharper styling with more eye catching details but it undeniably remains in autumn.
The same goes for what’s under the hood most often as we’ll have a preview of 2.5 liter 4 cylinder Nissan is claiming best in class fuel economy with 38 miles per gallon on the highway. See if it actually hits those numbers in our tests. Helping the car eek out that fuel economy is Nissan CBT . Our first driving impressions are that the ultimate handles pretty well for family sedan you’re not going to really mistake it for a sport sedan now the right to get a bit stiff especially in the V. 6 version of cabins quite quiet inside. Most buyers be very happy with the standard 4 cylinder however unlike some other family sedan rivals Nissan still offers an optional V. 63 0.5 liter this edge it has plenty of power with effortless passing. Giving our past experiences with this drive train. Probably get the same or better fuel economy than some of those turbo charged 4 cylinder rivals. Inside the car you’ll find better materials with lots of soft touch surfaces.
Controls are simple with a big street board radio same goes for the big break gauges. And you can’t get adjustable lumbar with the cloth seat. The backseat is even roomier than before. Our first impressions are that the Altima remains a well rounded family sedan not exactly exciting but it gets a lot of things right.
The big question is though how does it compare there’s a whole bunch of redesign family sedans coming out. Chevy Malibu the Ford fusion Honda accord and things like dozens of other good family sedan choices will. figure out how the Artemis stacks up we buy one of our own to test at the Consumer Reports test track.
