One of America’s bestselling cars year after year, the popular and sporty 2017 Nissan Altima is a consistent favorite in the extremely competitive mid-size sedan segment. Fresh off an extensive makeover just last year, the Altima, now in its sixth-generation, received measurable improvements in style, luxury, performance, and technology. The result is the absolute best Altima Nissan has ever created.
Built exclusively in Smyrna, Tennessee, the Altima successfully competes against a long list of popular, high-quality, high-value family sedans including the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Hyundai Sonata, Ford Fusion and Chevy Malibu. Some critics, bored by the segments uniformity and uninteresting design, have scalded the class for decades, calling it a bunch of vanilla cars with no personality. Appliances people need but few want.
But the Nissan Altima has successfully bucked that trend. Since it first appeared in 1992 the Altima has stood out with inspired style, upscale interiors, and a fun-to-drive character.
Let's take a closer look at the 2017 Nissan Altima.
