Firmly ensconced in third place in the mid-size sedan class, every now and then the Nissan Altima jumps up to first in monthly sales. For a time, the Altima was Nissan’s best-selling vehicle, before being ousted by the Rogue SUV during the growing crossover craze. Debuting in 1993 as one of the smaller offerings in the mid-size sedan class, the Altima’s success came as it gradually grew and updated its styling during the next decade. It distinguished itself from appliance-like mid-size sedans with its sporty air — if more in appearance than in driving dynamics. A few performance-oriented versions have been offered over the years, with suspension modifications and increased power. Known primarily as a sedan with conventional gasoline powertrains, hybrid and coupe variants have been briefly available. All Altimas sold in the U.S. are built in the U.S.
Small Family vehicles include mid-size and larger sedans, hatchbacks, wagons, SUVs and minivans with four doors and five seats.
Commuter vehicles have a minimum EPA-estimated mileage of 30 mpg combined. May require specific trim level and/or optional features.
