Nissan Altima Sedan Overview

The Nissan Altima has been on sale for more than 15 years and has now settled into the rare role of a practical five-passenger family sedan with handling and performance that appeals to the enthusiast. There have been four generations of Altimas, with the newest one introduced in 2007 and on sale now. The sedan has more recently been aimed at traditional segment leaders, and as such it has quickly matured in terms of features, nissan altima accessories, finesse and power. Family sedans have never been more capable across the board than they are today, and competition in this segment is consequently fiercer than ever. Yet the current Nissan Altima manages to distinguish itself by offering ample yet refined power, especially with the optional V6.
