Here Are 5 Things To Know About the 2015 Nissan Altima:
1. Both the four- and six-cylinder engines return top fuel economy for the family sedan segment, while also delivering excellent acceleration.
2. You may find the standard continuously variable transmission a little odd in that it doesn't sound or behave like a normal automatic, but you're likely to get used to it.
3. The ride is quiet and refined, yet the Altima still has the athletic handling that has long set it apart from other sedans. In other words, it's great to drive.
4. The cabin is tightly constructed with mostly high-quality materials, and the electronics interface is one of the easiest to use.
5. The front seats are exceptionally comfortable and supportive. Backseat space is only so-so. Six-footers may feel a bit cramped, and top rivals are better.
We gave the Nissan Altima an "A" rating, and the only notable change for 2015 is that you can now only get the V6 engine in the loaded SL trim level. Make sure to read its full review and consider its fellow top-rated family sedans: the Ford Fusion, Honda Accord, Mazda 6 and Toyota Camry.
