Nearly everything but the engines is either all or substantially new, beginning with the Altima's "class-above" looks, inside and out, and extending to a raft of new features, some class-exclusive. The CVT automatic transmission, thoroughly revamped for pleaseability and efficiency, accounts for much of its class-leading fuel economy.

Slightly smaller in this fourth generation, Nissan's midsize sedan can have an Xtronic continuously variable transmission (CVT) for the first time. Striving for the best-performing front-wheel-drive sedan in the world, Nissan claims to have addressed perceived weaknesses of the 2002 through 2006 models, including interior quality, noise levels and steering effort.

About Nissan Altima

Being one of the best-selling vehicles in one of the best-selling segments – midsize sedans – can be a double-edged sword. It's great to be a leader, but the pressure is always on to outdo your rivals. Amid this scenario, the 2016 Nissan Altima continues to command respect for its comfort, spaciousness and efficiency. Thanks to a significant update inside and out, the latest Altima remains competitive with stalwarts such as the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry, as well as ever-better players like the Hyundai Sonata and Kia Optima. The new, sportier Altima SR trim that is available with both 4- or 6-cylinder variants should also help Nissan's midsize sedan by widening its appeal.

Java metallic with white welcome lights make for one classy sedan!

"I've had my 2013 Altima 2.5 SL for about a month now, this is the first car I've ever bought, USED with about 58K on the odometer, traded in my hand-me-down 2004 Chevy Malibu Classic. What. A. Difference. I drive about 75+ miles every single day, so the 32.2 mpg is fabulous. I actually just took it for a trip to upstate New York, over 215 miles, I averaged 45 mpg (even in sport mode half the time!). With the 2.5L "QR" engine, it is easy enough to do oil changes yourself, save a few bucks and know your getting new not re-manufactured oil/filter. The ride is SUPER smooth (and anti-lead-foot!) once I got used to the CVT, which is tricky to adapt to from an automatic or manual transmission. I find the CVT is most strange on hills (and there's a ton of them in Connecticut) power isn't a problem, only when you let up on the gas ever so slightly up a hill (like near the crest) you can feel it tug hard and watch rpms fly down. However, when descending, the car raises the rpms and uses the engine to slow the car down so you don't tear up the super strong 4 disc brakes. As a Nissan product, the brakes are pretty sensitive, which I also noticed when I test drove a 2011 Infiniti G37x coupe (which ultimatately was just too expensive for my 20-year old self). The handling is good, but turn traction control off and it feels like a whole different car. Honestly, try it in Drive with TC then Ds without TC, 2 totally different cars show up. The SL model has the BOSE sound which I absolutely adore. I love all music, especially bass loaded and even with just woofers (no sub-woofers here) it makes life worth living. Between the NASA inspired seats and quality interior materials in general, it is the most comfortable cabin I've ever been in (more-so than my friends '14 Mercedes C-class) and I'm excited for the heated seats, steering wheel, and mirrors in the winter or for my fellow reproductive age women, heated seats are a huge bonus year-round ;) The glove box is HUGE, trunk is average, but plenty of leg room in all seats. No issues with the completely keyless system, push start is cool, *notice many complaining they can have the car on without the engine running, YOU CAN! Double push the button without foot on the brake and voila* All of the the xenon headlamps and interior lighting is average, but the LED tails are a step above the rest. Perhaps one of my favorite features is one I discovered the night I brought my car home... the LED ground lighting, which was like the sprinkles on top of an awesome fudge sundae. I feel I should mention that my dealer got this car from coastal Rhode Island so constantly blasted by sand and SALT for 3-4 years but there is almost NO RUST. Win for JDM here."

"We have owned this 2013 altima since last oct. It has been a real joy to drive in every way. We just returned form a road trip to ft. worth, drove a total of 1600 miles. Our avg. mpg for the entire trip 41 when we pulled into our driveway. When we left texas for home our avg. was 40.3 so it took about 700 miles of driving to achieve an increase to 41 Drove on cruise most of the time, in the past I have gotten in the 39 mpg range The ride is very comfortable."

"After doing a lot of research and driving all of the mid-size sedans, I purchased my 2013 Nissan Altima SV loaded with all options in December 2013. I now have 17,000 miles on the vehicle. Listed below are what I consider the pros and cons: Pros: 1) Quiet ride on highway 2) Responsive handling and steering 3) Good brakes 4) Comfortable interior 5) Excellent highway cruiser 6) Fuel efficient (I average 30 mpg) 7) Nice sounding stereo (Bose speakers) 8) Remote car starter 9) Good looking vehicle 10) Comfortable back seat. Can seat 3 adults if they are average size. Cons: 1) Engine/transmission is noisy when starting from a stop. From 0 to 40 mph, the car is not very enjoyable to drive. I did not notice this during my test drive. At lower speeds, the car is noisy with a fair amount of vibration. If you have driven a car with manual transmission, it feels and sounds like you are starting from a stop in 2nd gear (when you should have started in first gear). Because of this, I am thinking of selling the car and purchasing something that is more enjoyable to drive around town. 2)Trunk lid has large u-shaped brackets that eat up a lot of room when trying to close the trunk with a full load of cargo. Seem like an outdated design to me. 3) Computer screen cuts in an out repeatedly. 4) Sun visors are way too small. 5) Back up camera has poor quality picture compared to other manufacturers. If you need a car for mostly highway driving and you want good fuel efficiency, this may be a decent car selection for you. Once the car reaches 45 mph or higher, it is relatively quiet and a pleasant car to drive. However, if a significant proportion of your driving is city driving, I would not recommend this vehicle due to the noise and vibrations of the transmission/engine when starting from a stop and at low speeds."
